Marriage Matters Monday – What’s in a Name?

I recall how much angst one of my girlfriends went through after she got married and didn’t want to change her last name right away. She eventually hyphenated it but she put it off as long as possible. Her husband was not amused. The pair is (seemingly) happily married and even joke about my friend’s […]

Fashion Friday – Wedding Veil Styles

Confession: I had no idea there were so many types of veils until I launched Triple B. (And I have two degrees from the Fashion Institute of Technology plus studied fashion in London, England.) The truth is, I highly doubt most women do. So when it is time to search for their own veil brides […]

The Road to Mrs. – Sanctity of the Wedding Ceremony

I was recently asked by a family member which sanctuary we would be using for our wedding ceremony.

Religious traditions and sarcasm aside, this […]
