The Road to Mrs. – Romance & Finance

Road to Mrs. blogger Nicole and her fiance Leonard are learning how to compromise before saying I Do.

Being an only child, I’d never not gotten what I wanted. And being an attorney, I’d become very good at negotiating. So when my fiancé and I sat down to discuss our wedding and, most importantly, our wedding budget, I had very few worries. My vision was full of lavishness while his involved us going to the courthouse. In the end, we settled on a number that would allow me the wedding of my dreams, albeit with a much smaller guest list. His reasoning for not wanting to go overboard with the spending made absolute sense, and while I understood his point, admittedly I looked at the budget number as a suggestion — kind of the same way I look at speeding limits.

Tie the Knot Tuesday – Courthouse Couture Special

An intimate courthouse affair to remember!

A few months ago I discovered a Georgia courthouse wedding on Ebony.com that truly made my heart smile. The nuptials have already received so much buzz on the World Wide Web — and rightfully so — that I hesitated sharing them here…now. But even months after the creative couple said I Do, folks are still liking and commenting on their pictures on Triple B’s Instagram page. Don’t think a courthouse wedding can be chic?

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Turn Wedding Planning Activities Into Dates!

Mr. TK and I last winter at a Martha Stewart Weddings Event in the Soho, NYC Tiffany & Co. store! Good times.

Nearlyweds if you’re in the midst of wedding planning, chances are you are neck-deep in scheduling lots of tastings, venue walk-throughs and dozens of other vendor appointments. Juggling it all along with your already hectic life (because I don’t know many Black women who aren’t pulled into a multitude of directions) can begin to seem more like work than play. But I strongly urge you not to stay in that place and here’s why. [Read more...]

Gabrielle Union, “Secret Children” & Judging Someone Else’s Love

Bridal Bliss? Gabrielle Union Faces Major Ridicule Days After Accepting Dwyane Wade's Proposal

Earlier this week, I posted the following note on my personal Facebook page:

LOL. So now that Wade reportedly fathered a child while he and Gabrielle were on a break, the ring that some folks were ooohing and awwing over and the holiday pics and video aren’t cute anymore. Funny indeed. Not saying I agree or disagree with either side but the commentary I’ve read on the subject from perfect people in their perfect relationships with perfect families is comical to say the least.

Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – She Made Me A Better Man

 

I needed a provocative title in order to pique your interest. In a moment you’ll understand why I chose it. This post may be my most personal Final Fridays with Cousin Mars post to date. In fact, it may actually break a few of the privacy rules I set when I first agreed to contribute to The Ultimate Online Destination for Black Brides. I have received such positive reviews, via emails and post comments, over the past sixteen months. At the risk of sounding extremely corny, I feel as though the Black Bridal Bliss audience deserves a more open Cousin Mars.
