Earlier this month, Triple B joined forces with the lovely bridal boutique Soliloquy right outside of Washington, D.C. for a fun afternoon of trying on stunning wedding dresses by the likes of Kevan Hall, awesome gift bags and champagne. I shared some wedding planning tips with attendees and since the feedback was so positive, I felt it was only right to extend the information to those in the Triple B audience who can benefit from it as well. Check it out! [Read more...]
Yesterday I discovered a neat tool online that I’ve been itching to share with you all. As I’ve mentioned a gazillion times before, wedding costs vary greatly from city to city. The cost of a wedding in Los Angeles might be $55,000 while virtually the same wedding is only $24,500 in Siler City, North Carolina. Cost of Wedding is a genius website that crunches these types of numbers for you! Trust, you will want to bookmark this site if you’re currently planning nuptials as it will ultimately help you get the most bang for your bridal buck. [Read more...]

Before a bride gets hitched, there’s a tradition that typically takes place first.

Triple B found 5 alternative (and non-cheesy!) ways for brides to enjoy their friends, make memories and not regret that your name will be changed forever and ever. [Read more...]

On Wednesday I attended the David’s Bridal Fall 2012 Press Preview in New York City. It was a certified treat!

Even those trendier brides who choose to purchase their wedding gown from a boutique with more exclusivity can count on DB for a last minute accessory for a member of their bridal party. Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect from DB next season:
