The Road to Mrs. – Choosing My Wedding Party

Triple B's resident bride-to-be and her maid of honor, Heather!

A year ago, Leonard and I packed up and moved to Los Angeles. With no friends or family in town we spent most of our time together and became best friends. So when we got engaged, my initial thought was this day should be about us and us alone…no wedding party (yes, my narcissism flared up). With my wedding being small and intimate, it was already the case that everyone there was special to us. All of my friends would be traveling to LA and I didn’t want to burden them with the additional cost associated with being a bridesmaid. It was Leonard who convinced me otherwise. He had already decided that he wanted to have his lifelong friends at his side. They’d all been best friends since grade school and shared all of their life experiences together. To him, this was no exception. [Read more...]

The Road to Mrs – Saying Yes to the Dress

Triple B's resident bride-to-be Nicole (in pink) enlisted the help of her girls to find her dream wedding dress!

Once I was engaged, the thing I looked forward to the most was finding my wedding dress. All ten of the wedding apps I’d downloaded to my iPad said I needed to do this 7-9 months prior to the date. I was already behind schedule. Having watched every single episode of every single wedding show on TLC, I knew exactly what I wanted. Only problem was I was in Los Angeles…alone. Initially I thought I’d go into a bridal salon and pick out a dress solo so that everyone would be surprised when I walked down the aisle. But the more I thought about it, the more I knew I needed some assistance and support. I needed my girls. [Read more...]

Marriage Matters Monday – 5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Tying the Knot


Your honey popped the question so you’re ready to start planning your wedding. Sure you understand the marriage is bigger than the wedding — Duh!  You love your future spouse and have no doubts that he (or she) is who you want to say “I Do” to during that ceremony you have already begun meticulously planning.

After the bridal dust has settled and the honeymoon is (literally) over, the marriage begins. Even couples who live together before jumping the broom are likely to experience “growing pains” after their nuptials. Asking yourself the below questions then discussing your honest answers to those questions with your partner while still engaged is wise and will help you gain a better sense of self. [Read more...]

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.

(Not Quite) Tie the Knot Tuesday – Lisa & Preston Proposal Video


Proposal videos go viral on the Web faster than chicken pox spreads in a first grade classroom. Many of them are corny or just overdone but there are still some that manage to make us stop and say “Awww!” out loud. Today’s (Not Quite) Tie the Knot Tuesday video isn’t the most elaborate we’ve seen but there is a true sweetness about it and I appreciate that the groom-to-be — and a very proud member of Omega Psi Phi, Inc. — Preston took the time to submit it to Triple B. (Yep, fellas check out BlackBridalBliss.com too.)

Preston shares, “Lisa and I actually grew up together across the street from each other in Harlem, NYC. We lost contact for like 30 years.” He continues, “I found her on Facebook last year and we started a friendship again.” Now the couple is preparing to jump the broom in a destination wedding in Jamaica, WI.

Enjoy the video!

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? Meet The Bryants: [Read more...]

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.
