The Road to Mrs. – Love in 100 Pictures

I’ll admit, I was totally that girl who was thinking about her engagement pictures even before she was engaged. I’m lying! – Even before I was dating my fiancé, I was taking screenshots of cute engagement photos that came across my Facebook and Instagram accounts, I may have even [Read more…]

…Then Comes Marriage, Then Comes Baby in the Baby Carriage

For the record, only marriage is coming for me — I’m so not pregnant. I know I’m going to have at least one Facebook message, a couple of phone calls and a few texts from folks who just read the title of this post without reading the post in its entirety. I can guar.an.tee. [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs. – My Own David Tutera

Triple B’s resident bride-to-be is feeling a lot overwhelmed these days.

So, there’s this saying: “Fail to plan is planning to fail”.  All truth. I guess failing to plan a wedding is a major fail — especially if you want a wedding that is like IG worthy or like one of those on YouTube or Vimeo with the titles and John Legend track playing throughout. I digress. Back to planning. [Read more…]

Did our resident bride-to-be Keisa say yes to the dress?

Wedding dress shopping.  Oh. My.

I was certain I was adequately prepared for wedding dress shopping. I mean all of those Friday nights I spent binge watching TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress – how could I not know what dress I wanted? I may have mentioned before that I was serial bridesmaid. 27 Dresses anyone? [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs. – Selecting a Wedding Location

Welcome Bride-to-Be Keisa and her fiance Vlad to the Black Bridal Bliss Family!

Our resident Bride-to-Be Keisa and her fiance Vlad invite Black Bridal Bliss to join them on their exciting wedding planning journey!

In my twenties, I wanted a lavish, David Tutera-esq wedding: 20 bridesmaids in matching bright dresses, a serenade from Eric Benet, tons of flowers in vibrant colors and 300+ guests to witness the event. Now, on the other side of 35, with a steady creep to 40, I do not want any parts of the aforementioned. Lavish? Meh. Eric Benet? Nope, I’ve booked my best friend’s brother, an up and coming singer in LA. 20 bridesmaids? Absolutely not. No way. [Read more…]

*Flashback* Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – I Got Your Back

cousin mars on black bridal bliss

I think we have all heard the term “I Got Your Back.” I know it isn’t grammatically correct, but let’s ignore that for now. Growing up with siblings and/or other close relatives is what allows most kids the first opportunity to use this expression. As we grow older our circle begins to include friends. If you’re anything like me, you have many stories of how you’ve proven this mantra. Perhaps even better stories regarding how it was proven to you by others. I’d share a few, but the statute of limitations in New York and the District of Columbia are a bit fuzzy in some cases. [Read more…]
