Your special day is arriving quickly – which means it’s time to solidify the finishing touches to your look and event! There are a lot of steps that go into wedding planning, and you can’t do it all on your own. Working with vendors, designers, chefs, and dress fitters is key to ensuring your day goes smoothly. In the spirit of supporting black-owned businesses (like ours!), here are some of the best brands you can partner with to be sure your special day goes to plan.
Let Your Jewelry Shine!
Nothing completes a wedding day look quite like the perfect accessories. It’s always a good idea to enhance your look with earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and of course, rings! Shopping for black-owned jewelry brands is a great way to support small businesses and display their work in all of your photos. Not to mention, jewelry makes a great gift for your bridal party or other wedding-day guests!
Choose a Florist from a Black-Owned Business
Decorate your table settings with the magic touch of a floral arrangement. Purchasing custom-made bouquets and table settings from black-owned businesses can help make your day memorable, and you can even allow guests to take home the settings to enjoy at home! Also having your bouquets for holding during the ceremony custom-made allows you to customize the design to match the colors and themes of your wedding.
Choose a Black-Owned Woman-Run Catering Company!
Who doesn’t love a good bite to eat? Munching on delicious catered food will help keep your guests happy and allow you to enjoy your special day, as you won’t have to worry about coordinating food yourself. Supporting black-owned chefs can help them attract more patrons to their restaurants and book more clients in the future.
Shop Black-Owned Shoe Brands
No wedding day is complete without the perfect pair of shoes. Purchasing comfortable wedding-day shoes can make or break your special day. Wearing uncomfortable shoes can ruin the mood during your ceremony and reception. Purchase from small black-owned businesses to ensure you are getting quality-made, custom shoes to compliment your dress and keep your feet happy all through the night.
Focus on Haircare and Makeup
Using good quality beauty products can help keep your skin happy and breakout-free all throughout your wedding day. Using black-curated haircare products can be especially helpful if you are a person of color in need of extra hair TLC and products made specifically for your hair type!
Don’t Forget to Photograph Your Special Day
After all of your efforts ensuring the perfect prep for your wedding day, you’ll want every moment to be captured by a professional photographer. Try to partner with a black-owned photography company to help support their craft and showcase their work. Creators like these are in need of their work being promoted and celebrated!
