Hello beautiful people! Well, I finally decided to get this blog site up and running. Please know this has been over a year in the making because I have talked myself out of it several times, but the passion for it would not die. I am so excited to finally introduce Chic Brown Bride to everyone! In my former life I was either a wedding planner or an actress or maybe an actress who played a wedding planner (But, I digress). 🙂
I love WEDDINGS!!! But what I love most about weddings is the commitment two people have chosen to enter into together. The love story behind it all is what really gets me! But what really saddens me is the lack of love that brides and couples of color receive. Brides of color are often under represented or over looked in main stream media. This has been the case in the wedding as well as the fashion industry for years.
Recently, there are several sites dedicated solely to brides of color. But in a billion dollar industry having a handful (literally) of sites like these is ridiculous! In this day and age images and stories that are for us and support women of color and relationships are so much needed. Stories that include couples who not only got married but stay married are also important. Not only that this site is here to cater to and support small businesses who work with these couples. Over the next few weeks please look out some of these weekly features:
Tuesday Shoesday: Every Tuesday we will feature a shoe so you can keep your shoe game tight.
Wednesdays: Dedicated to all things related to the day of your wedding. Real Weddings, Interviews with Industry professionals, styled shoots. Also a special treat I like to call Then Comes Marriage although this is a wedding blog and we all want to see the pretty we can’t forget that the marriage should be better than the wedding. This is where I will interview couples who will discuss what they have learned since being married and give the real deal on what marriage is all about.
Thursday: Dress the Look features nothing but fashion for your wedding day, rehearsal dinner, bridal shower etc…
Friday: I like to end the week off with Happy Hour! I will feature a drink recipe for you to enjoy and relax with for the weekend as well as my favorite links from around the web.
As well as daily musings on life, love and all things pretty!!
