Just when I get frustrated by life’s inevitable tests, I receive an email like the one excerpted below. The unsolicited heartfelt message below was emailed to me from a regular Triple B reader/visitor in Maryland. It almost brought me to tears. I’ve always felt this site was about more than weddings. So much more…And clearly this woman agrees. [Read more...]
WOO HOO! It’s Friday, most of us have a long weekend ahead and Monday (Memorial Day for us in the U.S.) marks the unofficial start of summer. ENJOY! Oh and those of you attending weddings this weekend (I’m going to one tonight!) that you think are Tie the Knot Tuesday worthy, be sure to send the bride and groom my way. Annnddd (insert drumroll here) as of 12AM PST (midnight), BlackBridalBliss.com will go dark until 10AM EST on Monday, June 4th. We’ll have lots of new bells and whistles to shares once we return. In the meantime, there will still be informative and fun updates on our Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest pages so continue to check them regularly. Don’t forget to spread the bliss and see you Monday, June 4th!
Hola! Yesterday I received a tweet from a former colleague that made my day. It read: “Thank you for keeping the site going! These images are necessary. I love the pics in today’s Tie the Knot Tuesday wedding. ” See why that made my day? And now it is your turn!
Many of you have also tweeted me, emailed me, left a comment on the Triple B Facebook page or shared verbally in passing that Black Bridal Bliss has given you something special. So now I need a favor from you. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org the ways that this site has inspired, motivated or encouraged you. No expression is too small or too long. Be sure to include your first name and city of residence. Know that I’m not collecting these testimonies for kicks and giggles but rather for a much bigger Triple B related project. Many thanks in advance for helping to take Triple B to the next level.
Please enjoy this post from me today — the final post from BlackBridalBliss.com for the year. Nadine will return next Thursday with her Road to Mrs. blog.
“How can you give advice on marriage or weddings if you’ve never been married?” she asked with a tinge of attitude while she flashed her colossal platinum diamond ring and matching wedding band. She was an on-air reporter for CNN and we were at a networking reception during the National Association of Black Journalists Annual Conference in San Diego last summer. Triple B was just four months young at the time and I was eager to spread the word about my baby. But honestly, her question stung. Okay, it stung a lot. [Read more...]
