I’m Dawn and I’m getting married in May. That picture is from the day The Mister and I were getting our engagement photos taken. I was nervous about the hair and using my phone to send my sis-in-law a preview of “the look”. Plus, you get an extra special peek at our bathroom here at work…isn’t it nice?
So The Mister asked me to marry him in July and I immediately went to the bookstore and bought lots & lots of wedding magazines (after I said yes, of course!)…why? Because I could that’s why! I’m getting married and it’s finally kosher for me to buy wedding magazines, so I’m going to buy me some wedding magazines thank you very much.
But oddly enough, though I know Black people date, fall in love, and get married…there were virtually no Black people in the wedding magazines. Then I found the wedding blogs…nope, no Black people there either. Hmmm, what a quandry? Now, I don’t want you to think I’m a militant Black Panther or something (please, I’m like the female version of Carlton from Fresh Prince of Bel Air…I’m all Banana Republic and J. Crew), but it seems that something is amiss.
So this space will be a place for indie brides (I just heard that term on another blog and thought it sounded cool) of all shades to come together to talk about our weddings, the lives we’d like to create, and the details…because if you know me, then you know the deets (details) are important.
I intend to write everyday and I hope that you read everyday.
