Confessions of a Groom: I Didn’t Think I’d Cry

Three toasts on a night full of joyous emotion replay in my head days after my wedding ceremony. In a past post I discussed the pressure and responsibility of delivering the Best Man toast, well each of the toasts given in my honor delivered in a big way. At the time that I wrote the last […]

Triple B Founder Bridgette Bartlett Jumped the Broom!

Well folks, the deed was done. On Saturday, October 19, 2013, I jumped the broom with my best friend in front of roughly 115 loved ones. (We actually wed a month prior in a much smaller ceremony — I promise to elaborate more on that later.) In a word, last weekend was bliss. Mr. TK and I […]

Bridgette’s Wedding Countdown: I’m Getting Married in THREE Days!

The great news: I made it to Charlotte! Hello, Bojangles and hearing folks say “reckon” regularly. I’m about as Southern as a New York gal can be so it isn’t too much of a surprise to most of my friends that I wanted to jump the broom in North Carolina. Time is flying by. Here’s […]

Bridgette’s Wedding Day Countdown: I’m Getting Married in Four Days!

Last night I received unfortunate news regarding a loved one. The news wasn’t life-threatening and might help said person in the long run but I spent a good portion of my evening consumed with it instead of finishing this list. I still don’t have escort cards, I didn’t go to snapfish.com to get signs printed […]

Bridgette’s Wedding Day Countdown: I’m Getting Married in 5 Days!

Today’s gonna be a doozy! I’ve been up since 5ish this morning sending emails and making lists. There’s still more lists to write, too. (Mr. TK thinks I make too many lists but my mother has warned him I inherited that from my dad. “She got it honest,” she told him. They now have lots […]

Bridgette’s Wedding Day Countdown: I’m Getting Married in a Week!

Yesterday was productive. While I didn’t complete all the tasks on my to-do list, I finished most of them and even did a few important things that weren’t on the list. (Ahem, my wedding band was finally selected and purchased — WOO HOO!) I realized that not only was my friend Lisa’s advice to post […]

Bridgette’s Wedding Day Countdown: 8 Days Left!

Happy Friday! Guess what? I’m scheduled to jump the broom a week from tomorrow. That’s right! One. Week. From. Tomorrow. Although I’ve been blogging on Triple B for Road to Mrs. periodically, I have managed to remain sorta tight-lipped about the details of my wedding. (When it is all said and done there will actually […]

My Road to Mrs. – Bridal Shower Bliss!

One of the highlights in my wedding planning process which is quickly coming to a close was my bridal shower and bachelorette weekend.

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week: Staying Focused During Wedding Planning

Consumer marketing in the wedding industry is genius. Companies in every area of the biz — from fashion and beauty to food and beverage to travel — find ways to manipulate couples into thinking they need certain items in order to have a beautiful wedding. We’re led to believe that the “perfect wedding” will led […]

The Road to Mrs. – Where are You Getting Your Garter?

One of the things still left to check off of my wedding to-do list is purchasing a garter. To my surprise and (disappointment), Victoria’s Secret is lacking in this department. [Confession: I have a gift card to VS that I was hoping I could use to snag a garter but no cigar.] So when I […]

Marriage Matters Monday – Negative Folks Go Thatta Way!

My intention today was to share the below video Marriage Is… by The Social Series that was brought to my attention by Triple B friends Black & Married with Kids.

Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – Just a Friend

Many of you between the ages of 30 and 45 remember the hit song from Biz Markie – Just a Friend. Although this was just a song, it was and is a topic that many newlywed couples are forced to tackle. In my opinion, too many people expect their significant other to morph into a […]

As if we needed another reason to swoon over Kerry Washington, the newlywed arrived to the 2013 Emmy Awards in this frothy Marchesa gown from the Spring 2014 collection.

It’s traditional for the bridal party of a bride-to-be to invite close friends and family over, open a few gifts, and have a glass of wine or (ahem) three. This is fine but ladies, where’s the fun?

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – My Facial at Milla’s Treatment Boutique

Last month I had the pleasure of getting a facial at Milla’s Treatment Boutique. It was awesome. Although I had been to the boutique once for a press event, this visit was my first time actually having a treatment done by Milla and my first facial in years. The best part? I received my service […]

My Road to Mrs. – Invitation Highs and Lows

I am a huge stationery fan. It all began when my father purchased personalized stationery for me when I was about 7 or 8 years old. I even worked a part-time job at a very high-end British stationery and small leather goods boutique as an adult. Oh and guess what else? I dabble in calligraphy […]
