We're having a great start to 2010 and we're hoping our readers can say the same. In the last few weeks, we've received some awesome partnerships that will ensure that our readers continue to get top-notch content and photographs relevant to the African-American wedding experience. One of the most exciting benefits of this is that we will be able to bring you more stories, vendors and wedding/engagement photographs that you won't see anywhere else. We recently started a new Twitter account exclusively for wedding-related tweets, so if you're on Twitter, be sure to add us at Twitter.com/WeddingLuxe. You'll get the latest from this blog and our sister wedding blogs. Do not miss out.
Just today we found out that we were leading in the votes for Best Black Bridal Blog. We were also excited to read that Dana Ostomel recently named African-AmericanBrides.com part of "The New Awesome in Wedding Planning". It's hard to believe all of this is about a little website that started as a Yahoo group almost 8 years ago!
As the editor of African-AmericanBrides.com, I can honestly say that things have never looked better. I've turned off my Google alerts because each search for black weddings has our stories in the top five slots. But read back over the last few pages of this blog and you'll see I have LOTS of help from some fabulous brides, photographers and event planners. Visit their blogs and websites when you get the chance, as they will save you both money and time. I believe the current economy means African-American Brides' readers deserve MORE and not less. More options, more understanding, more joy and more inspiration. Please continue to communicate with us. Let us know what you like and what you'd like to see more of. Also, please keep those gorgeous wedding pictures and stories coming in!
