Triple B’s only male blogger shares the deets on what men think about proposing.

Okay, I have to admit this is a tough one. I may lose my Dude Card for this post, but HEY…this is for Triple B. Popping the big question takes a BIG pair (you know what I mean).

In Great Company: Me + Moderator Cori Murray Flanked by the Cupcakes, Cocktails & Conversation Panelists

Ladies and gentlemen, the Black Bridal Bliss Cupcakes, Cocktails & Conversation in Washington, D.C. was a bona fide hit!

Triple B’s first Cupcakes, Cocktails & Conversation was a HIT!

On November 8, 2015, BlackBridalBliss.com brings its signature Cupcakes, Cocktails, & Conversation event to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. Too rarely is fun and informative discussion encouraged regarding healthy love – specifically among Blacks. The Cupcakes, Cocktails, & Conversation series allows women to hear the inner most thoughts of men on subjects that are rarely openly discussed relating to romantic relationships. Question development for these panel discussions promotes open and honest dialogue about love and marriage — from a man’s perspective. Why men? [Read more…]

Final Fridays with Cousin Mars – I Got Your Back

  cousin mars on black bridal bliss

I think we have all heard the term “I Got Your Back.” I know it isn’t grammatically correct, but let’s ignore that for now. Growing up with siblings and/or other close relatives is what allows most kids the first opportunity to use this expression. As we grow older our circle begins to include friends. If you’re anything like me, you have many stories of how you’ve proven this mantra. Perhaps even better stories regarding how it was proven to you by others. I’d share a few, but the statute of limitations in New York and the District of Columbia are a bit fuzzy in some cases. [Read more…]
