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…]

The hubby and I have friends who recently tied the knot in St. Lucia. I was texting with the bride a few weeks before their wedding when she shared the sentiments below:
“We are so excited but nervous at the same time. Let me know if you have any tips for staying calm [before] the big day.”
I had to share those tips here too because this is undoubtedly the way most engaged couples feel leading up to their wedding day. Here are Triple B’s top five tips for maintaining your bridal bliss as you prepare for your nuptials: [Read more…]
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Marriage Matters is typically a Monday feature on Black Bridal Bliss. However, we’re mixing things up this week. There’s been a lot of chatter on social media regarding whether or not women, particularly wives, should or shouldn’t fix their partners plates at cookouts, Thanksgiving gatherings and such. Check out what our pal Charli Penn over at ESSENCE.com had to say about this debate:

The couple have three children, countless professional accolades and a whole lotta love between them. Don’t believe me, just watch! [Read more…]
September 15, 2012. I will never forget that date. It is the day my now husband proposed. It was a beautiful late summer afternoon. The temperature was in the mid-80s. Warm but not too hot. He requested I wear a dress. I obliged and rocked some heels for good measure too. We got an early start and headed to one of my favorite NYC chill spots, Fort Tryon Park in upper Manhattan. We took pictures of each other, asked strangers to take pictures of us together, took pics of the gorgeous scenery, flirted, kissed, laughed and just enjoyed each other.
In hindsight, he must have been drowning in anxiety knowing what he was planning to do later in the day. [Read more…]

While many dismiss Father’s Day as another lame form of societal pressure to spend money, we like using this time to celebrate something we’re extremely passionate about here: Family. Rather than featuring a gift guide, Black Bridal Bliss convinced first-time father-to-be Anslem Rocque to open up about life since learning he would be a parent. Anslem is no stranger to Triple B, we’ve showcased both his engagement session and wedding. Now, there’s a Lil’ Rocque on the way! Keep reading for an honest take from a real husband on protecting his pregnant wife, leaning on his circle of male friends and keeping the good stuff about his family off social media. [Read more…]
