Planning your engagement photography session is key after he pops the question. Brides-to-be want to be creative and many head online for inspiration. Brides of color are no different. Since 1998, BlackBride.com has been a premier online resource for brides of color. We spoke with the president and CEO of BlackBride.com Mary Chatman about the unique web site. BlackBride.com features women of color from various cultures and backgrounds that share their love stories and invite you to get a glimpse of their special days. The goal of BlackBride.com? To shine a light on brides of color in a chic way.
What sets BlackBride.com apart from other online resources is this — not only does it provide resources for planning your dream wedding, it also provides resources related to honeymoon destinations, home buying tips, financial education, access to relationship experts and more. Mary told us: “BlackBride.com is not only a resource for weddings, but also a place to help couples after the ‘I do’s’ have been said.”
Content found on the site is also light and entertaining. Recently, Black Bride interviewed the couple from the popular wedding trailer “the Best Wedding Video Ever,” which quickly garnered over three hundred thousand views. The website also features stunning photography from amazing photographers of engagement sessions and weddings that are bound to give brides-to-be endless amounts of inspiration.
BlackBride.com has also hosted bridal shows that have showcased the best in the industry for bridal fashions, the most desired locations to have your wedding, as well as vendors for wedding cakes and top notch photographers to capture the special moments of your engagement or your wedding day.
Mary told theGrio that BlackBride.com will soon expand internationally, adding resources for brides who plan to get married around the world while expanding its audience. Black Bride is also looking forward to hosting its third annual bridal show next year in Atlanta. Chatman is constantly pushing BlackBride.com creatively to powerfully impact the online bridal world with its unique perspective.
