Celebrity weddings!

Filed in Charanne , THE BABBIES , Uncategorized 3 comments


Who would have thought? Celebrities have issues too.  No, I’m not talking about the ones who are addicted to everything under the sun.  They go through similar things as us common folk.  For instance, Malinda Williams (you might remember her as Bird on T.V.’s Soul Food).

Malinda Williams

Well, turns out that she knows a thing or two about weddings–she will be married to rapper Derrick ‘D-Nice’ Jones in Atlanta on August 23, 2008.  Now many of you BABs might be saying that she can’t have the same problems as you.  Hmmph.  I will let Ms. Williams’ words speak on that:

He proposed to me, I said yes, now what? Do we hold hands and skip on over to the justice of the peace, sneak off to a private island with 25 of our closest friends and family, or do we go all out and have an opulent, fit for a duke and duchess-type affair? Believe it or not, this was a really tough decision. We knew we would get married but we knew not how. I will say this; we are quite happy with our decision but it is certainly not without it’s drama. Turns out saying “yes” was the easy part.

 See?  No matter where you are in your planning just remember: doubts about how extravagant a wedding should be are VERY common. Even Ms. Williams knows this one day is not worth doing into debt over; “she set a budget and everyday [she] fight[s] to stick to it.”


Williams will wear a Maggie Sottero gown.  Standing up for her will be actresses Terri Vaughn, Vanessa Williams, Nicole Ari Parker and her sisters Leslie Dunn and Lisa Sorenson.

I know everyone wants to see pictures!

Oh, last but not least her inspiration…

She would like a vintage yet modern feel to her wedding.  Will keep all my BAB’s posted with pics from the wedding!
