The Road to Mrs.- Adventures in Wedding Planning Part III

A custom creation from Tart Bites

After two days of smelling roses and pricing candelabras, it was time to taste some cake! Cake tasting, albeit, not the best for my waistline, has certainly been one of the more enjoyable aspects of wedding planning. For our cake tastings, my planner Christina lined up two appointments. Our first tasting was held at a popular upscale bakery with several locations throughout Los Angeles specializing in wedding cakes and other decadent desserts. Upon arrival, we met with one of the bakers who handed us a book of various cake flavors and told us to go at it. [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs. – Adventures in Wedding Planning, Part I

Wedding planning adventures in Los Angeles with resident Triple B bride-to-be Keisa and her daughter Ava!

In a previous post, I discussed the importance of wedding planning visits when planning a destination wedding. Last week, I spent 3 days in sunny Los Angeles with my Mom, daughter and wedding planner to do nothing but wedding plan…well, kinda, except for when we put on our tourist hats and since it was Ava’s Spring Break, checked off all of her “to-dos” from her list, which was a list of random, but dope, sights to see. But, for the most part, we were knee deep in wedding planning. [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs. – Wedding Planning from Afar: My Destination Wedding Tips

Beach Bliss!

So, we decided to have a wedding in a city that is over 1,800 miles away from our home. Apparently, a year long, long distance relationship wasn’t enough for the kid – I needed more distance and distance I got. Destination sunny Cal-i-forn-ia – beautiful weather, great beaches, tacos, yes tacos – everything that makes this bride smile. However, my smile started to fade when I realized [Read more…]

Travel Thursday: Cool Resource for Honeymoon Planning


Triple B just discovered a travel resource that could possibly be a lifesaver for nearlyweds or newlyweds in the honeymoon planning stages. I just learned of Encore Romance Travel on Instagram earlier this week via Chic Brown Bride. (Thanks again, Danielle!) Encore caught my attention and I think they should be on your radar, too. Here’s why: Encore specializes in off the beaten path honeymoon packages, custom packages and all-inclusive honeymoons. There is even an option called mystery honeymoons for the truly adventurous couple. Encore owner Brenda says, “I am passionate about traveling, discovering the world and I love helping other busy couples create the honeymoon of their dreams.” Good stuff, right? [Read more…]

The Road to Mrs. – Long Distance Wedding Planning

Nadine and her fiance Sean don't always have the luxury of planning their wedding in the same country.

Last week Sean and I updated you on our wedding plans. Hours after our video posted on BBB, Sean headed to the UK for work. By Saturday, I sent him this Facebook message, “Mayday! Mayday! I’m surrounded by wires and trying to figure out which cable wire goes into the TV.  Missing you very much right now. When you get a chance can you send me an email with instructions? Thx!”

To be clear, I’m not some damsel in distress. I’m used to Sean’s traveling but I hate having to deal with household chores he’d usually handle, such as changing high ceiling light bulbs or moving anything really heavy. Thanks to Skype I was able to solve my dilemma, which got me thinking about engaged couples that have to plan their wedding long distance or are planning a destination wedding. If your wedding ceremony is far from home or if you and your fiancé can’t plan the wedding together, things can get sticky. Here’s a few tips that may help:
