So, we decided to have a wedding in a city that is over 1,800 miles away from our home. Apparently, a year long, long distance relationship wasn’t enough for the kid – I needed more distance and distance I got. Destination sunny Cal-i-forn-ia – beautiful weather, great beaches, tacos, yes tacos – everything that makes this bride smile. However, my smile started to fade when I realized [Read more…]

These ladies are catching some rays before the big day.
Admit it. You just reread the title of this post at least twice. St. Louis? She can’t be serious. Well I am and here’s why! [Read more…]
Yes, the Black Bridal Bliss 2016 Holiday Gift Guide wrapped last week (get full recap here). However we had to sneak in a bonus gift idea. For those of you itching for a last-minute getaway, consider a jaunt to the beautiful island of Nevis. Nevis is ripe for busy folks who need to hit the reset button post-holiday season [Read more…]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Five Reasons to Consider a Couple’s Getaway to Mount Airy Casino & Resort
It happened. We’re somehow in the second week of August and you haven’t taken nary a vacation. Or, you actually managed to get a vacay in but still feel like another quick jaunt is necessary before fall begins and the carefree spirit of summer departs. Those in the NYC tri-state area might consider a stay at Mount Airy Casino & Resort.
Black Bridal Bliss was invited to visit the Mount Airy Casino & Resort earlier this summer. We were admittedly skeptical. [Read more…]
Mars thinks -Wow! Just wow. Our loyal Mars vs. Venus followers should already know that I have a “thing” for Kelly (perhaps an understatement). Although a bit risky, I think this dress would be an excellent selection by a bride (with the body to slay) on her big day. The body hugging, fitting combined with the see-through panels is sure to capture all of the attention, without losing taste points. I’ll probably get in trouble with my wife if I say anything else.

Here are five more exciting reasons we accepted the invitation to experience Saybrook Point Inn & Spa! [Read more…]
I once assumed The Berkshires were reserved for those that “summered” in New England. Um for the record, my family did not and we still don’t. In a nutshell, Massachusetts just didn’t seem like a desirable location for a destination wedding, honeymoon, romantic jaunt or even a quick girlfriend’s getaway like the Caribbean, Charleston or Las Vegas. Honestly, I think I was intimidated by the exclusive reputation of the area.
Fast forward to earlier this year when Black Bridal Bliss was invited to spend a weekend in The Berkshires. My perception of this historic western Massachusetts town has pleasantly evolved. Just under a two hour drive from midtown Manhattan — making it an ideal minimoon destination for NYC couples — it is an inviting escape from the hustle and bustle of city life (wild turkeys were spotted on the highway!) filled with lush greenery, rolling hills and friendly locals. Here are the Black Bridal Bliss top five reasons to visit The Berkshires: [Read more…]
