Bridgette’s Pick of the Week has a Road to Mrs. spin today. I was recently discussing my wedding with one of my fiance’s friends and after she asked the typical questions about the planning process – did you guys select the venue, have you found a gown, etc. — she expressed something very telling. “Bridgette, women like me are curious to see how you pull off your wedding not just as a Black bride or a bridal blogger but also as a woman in her 30s.” [Read more...]

BREAKING NEWS: It looks like Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is preparing to actually become a real…well, wife! The former member of the R&B girl group Xscape is preparing to tie the knot to television producer, Todd Tucker. So Kandi joins the ranks of Janet Jackson, Brandy and Mellody Hobson — all high-profile Black women who recently announced they’ll be saying I Do in the near future. Shucks, NeNe Leaks divorced her husband Gregg of over a decade and even they just announced that they’re remarrying. [Read more...]
Some folks say what is meant to be, will be. That was certainly the case for Belinda and Kevin who had their recent Atlanta nuptials documented by Three Ring Media. This encore wedding (this is their second marriage to each other) took place over two decades after the twosome first met. While watching the video, it is obvious that these two were destined to be together again. Triple B wishes the newlyweds-again health, prosperity and all they happiness they can stand! [Read more...]
Since 2012 is officially winding down, I decided to round up my favorite posts of the year. (Magazine folks like me get a kick out of doing things like this.) So take a walk down memory lane with Triple B and leave a comment with your own picks. Happy Holidays, folks!
I’ve already shared this video on Facebook and Twitter but you guys know I’m a bona fide sucka for a good wedding trailer so I had to make this my pick of the week on the site, too. This couple got down for their first dance. How cool are those masks?! So creative and just plain ‘ole fun — I’m sure their entire reception was a blast!
If my fiance and I did anything remotely like this it would surprise all our guests because he’s not a big fan of dancing. Will you or did you and your significant other shake a tailfeather like this couple did for your wedding’s first dance? Why or why not?
Triple B is still working on an exciting — but currently confidential — project. In the meantime, enjoy this wedding trailer from upbeat couple Jessica and Donovan. Besides it just being fun to watch, there’s a hefty amount of inspiration for any planning bride to take advantage of in this two and a half minute trailer. From the sassy satin robes the bridesmaids are rocking while getting ready (I found affordable options just like them here!) to the perfect song selection to accompany the wedding day footage. Enjoy!
There’s no Tie the Knot Tuesday for the next couple of weeks because Triple B is super-busy working on an exciting (yet time-consuming) project. I look forward to sharing the great news with you guys when the ink is dry! In the meantime, check out the below wedding trailer that originally was shared in Triple B TV. I haven’t a clue who Kendra and Gerald are but there is something very familiar about them. In this short snippet of their wedding day, it’s evident that there were plenty of sentimental moments, humor, dancing, food, friends and family. That’s my kind of party. And the way it was all captured on film are signs of a great videographer. My favorite scene is probably the end when the newlyweds are surrounded in a circle by who I assume are their family matriarchs. Seems like this couple’s marriage started off with a lot of support and who can’t appreciate that? Enjoy!
