Black Brides: You Matter Here!

Triple B’s very first Tie the Knot Tuesday bride, Cleo Dujon!

A new year always encourages us to reflect on the one we just left. We’re 9 days into 2012 and as I attempt to strategize on ways to make Triple B more helpful and efficient for you (and make a profit in the process), I’ve been forced to reevalute why this site was launched in the first place. We can all agree that the Black bride is rarely ever acknowledged and when she is it often seems like an afterthought. But here are some other reasons I think often go unnoticed: [Read more…]

Made of Honor: A Bridesmaid Gets Real

Writer and former-bridesmaid Janelle Harris has a story to tell...

Happy Monday! Today’s post is a certified treat from writer, Janelle Harris.

Second Time Around: If at first you don’t succeed, try again. Thank goodness newlyweds Cleo and Lyncoln took heed to this sage advice. After meeting through friends, the duo immediately hit it off and started dating. “Cleo seemed down to earth and we had good conversation,” explains Lyncoln. However the pair decided to take things slow after a few months of courting but agreed to stay in touch and remain friends. “During that time apart, I constantly found myself thinking about him and he wasn’t even my boyfriend,” admits Cleo with a laugh. A chance meeting at a mutual friend’s party in Philly rekindled their sparks and the couple decided to give their love another chance. They haven’t looked back since. [Read more…]
