Bride-to-be Shelby (in white) surrounded by her "Fab 5" bridesmaids!

Planning a bridal shower? You’ve come to the right place! Today’s reader-submitted bridal shower took place in Detroit and is filled with fun, fashion and a good dose of frugalness. The bride Shelby, who is a big fan of vintage-shopping, wed in a destination affair in Jamaica on August 30th but her forever friend Jamishia (who submitted the pics to Triple B) and the rest of the bridal party threw their girl a bridal shower to remember before the island nuptials. Besides this shower being creative and stylish, what is most impressive — and refreshing — is the genuine sisterhood it embodies. Enjoy!  [Read more...]

Marriage Matters – How Young is Too Young to Get Married?


Raised by married parents, a college graduate, pursuing a master’s degree and the owner of a pretty smile. Doesn’t that make me the perfect package? My relationship reality didn’t become clear until I began to scroll through my Insta (gram) timeline and notice many of my female classmates had either been recently married or engaged. For a moment I laughed at those girls. My first thought was, “Y’all are crazy!” Did your mother not teach you as mine did; to “Do You!” before settling down? In other words: Travel, party, live alone, and kiss a few frogs? [Read more...]

Marriage Matters – Thinking Inside the Box


I found the above message on Instagram a couple weeks back and thought it was profound. So much so that I needed to share. It is easy (too easy) to get caught up in the rings, the gown, the flowers, the reception music, and the 18,000 other things that even the most focused engaged couple can forget the true point of it all.

Read. Digest. Comment. (Even if you disagree.)

Marriage Matters Monday – The Family Crews Exclusive Interview

Pucker Up! - Rebecca + Terry Crews at the 20th Wedding Vow Renewal

We all remember BET’s hit reality show The Family Crews. Terry and Rebecca Crews welcomed us in their L.A. home, making us all feel like family. But what happened when the cameras stopped rolling? Triple B chatted with Mrs. Rebecca Crews about getting and staying married. Rebecca, who is refreshingly down to Earth, is clear that her husband did not become the man that he is overnight but in practicing commitment, compassion, and communication they held on. Terry and Rebecca are the proud parents of five children and celebrated 25 years of marriage on July 29, 2014. This is their story… [Read more...]

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s Save the Date Video is Adorbs (Seriously.)

The countdown is officially on for Gabby + Wade's August 30 nuptials in MIA!

Don’t believe the headline? Just watch for yourself below. Oh and word on the street is that the couple, who has had their relationship under quite a bit of scrutiny since getting engaged, also mailed out traditional paper save-the-dates with a heart motif back in May. Smart to have both just in case some folks — i.e. Nana and ‘em — aren’t feeling the digital correspondence for such an important day. [Read more...]

The Road to Mrs. – Priorities While Wedding Planning

Our resident bride-to-be Nicole was wowed by this chic Southern California venue for her wedding.

It was early in the planning process when I found out that I’d have to set priorities when it came to spending.  In order to stay in budget, I would not be able to splurge on every detail. I’d have to find savings here and there and be willing to compromise.

The most important thing to making my day great would be the venue and the food, [Read more...]
