Once I was engaged, the thing I looked forward to the most was finding my wedding dress. All ten of the wedding apps I’d downloaded to my iPad said I needed to do this 7-9 months prior to the date. I was already behind schedule. Having watched every single episode of every single wedding show on TLC, I knew exactly what I wanted. Only problem was I was in Los Angeles…alone. Initially I thought I’d go into a bridal salon and pick out a dress solo so that everyone would be surprised when I walked down the aisle. But the more I thought about it, the more I knew I needed some assistance and support. I needed my girls. [Read more...]
Your honey popped the question so you’re ready to start planning your wedding. Sure you understand the marriage is bigger than the wedding — Duh! You love your future spouse and have no doubts that he (or she) is who you want to say “I Do” to during that ceremony you have already begun meticulously planning.
After the bridal dust has settled and the honeymoon is (literally) over, the marriage begins. Even couples who live together before jumping the broom are likely to experience “growing pains” after their nuptials. Asking yourself the below questions then discussing your honest answers to those questions with your partner while still engaged is wise and will help you gain a better sense of self. [Read more...]
Today is my birthday so I’m off the grid until tomorrow. I’m stepping away from the World Wide Web to enjoy the rest of this gorgeous day (the weather is beautiful where I am) with my pretty awesome husband and reflect on all my blessings — one of them being the growing platform that is Triple B. Love in any form is a blessing whether it comes from a spouse, friend, family member, pet or bridal blog. Enjoy the day because I certainly plan to!
Mondella Jones here from MJLA Media. I really hate to keep you waiting, but I’m pulling out all stops to bring you #TheRoyallUnion, TripleB’s most anticipated Tie The Knot Tuesday ever. In nearly 4 years, Bridgette has beautifully profiled the “Power of Love” stories of more than 100 couples, and I want to be sure that her love story receives the same care and attention to detail that she so richly deserves. So thanks in advance for your patience, and join me on social media (twitter/instagram) for the countdown to “Bridgette’s Bridal Bliss” on Tuesday, February 4, 2014. I promise it will be so worth it.
Until next week,
I have no desire to be a relationship expert of any kind. The only relationship I want to be an expert on is my own. (Kudos to those true professionals who have studied their butts off to help the rest of us navigate our love lives.) However this is on my heart and mind so I wanted to share. I’ve only been married a few months but one thing I’ve already learned is it requires way too much time and energy to worry what others think of your union. In the words of this quite profound toddler, after you say “I Do”, it is even more important to worry about yourself. [Read more...]
Earlier this week, I posted the following note on my personal Facebook page:
LOL. So now that Wade reportedly fathered a child while he and Gabrielle were on a break, the ring that some folks were ooohing and awwing over and the holiday pics and video aren’t cute anymore. Funny indeed. Not saying I agree or disagree with either side but the commentary I’ve read on the subject from perfect people in their perfect relationships with perfect families is comical to say the least.
