The Best Bridal Moments And Gowns From Our Favorite Black TV Shows
Have you ever noticed that when publications come up with a list of some of the best bridal gowns and moments from TV shows, they rarely make mention of Black brides?
I’m getting married in about two months, and while perusing the Internet earlier, I tried to look through a slideshow online from a popular bridal magazine listing the best TV wedding dresses. I was intrigued. Sadly, per the usual, everyone mentioned was White. I guess I can understand it. Many of the Black TV show characters we have loved over the years, specifically the women, weren’t necessarily known or given much credit in the mainstream for their style (aside from maybe Denise Huxtable and Hilary Banks). Still, I couldn’t help but to think that it would be nice to see some Black brides and the fabulous dresses they’ve worn over the years during our favorite wedding episodes.
When you can’t find it, make it. So here you go:
Angie Baxter on All My Children
When daytime television’s first Black super couple remarried in 2008, they were able to have quite the luxurious ceremony — one their characters weren’t able to pull off the first time around after saying “I do” in front of the justice of the peace. Angie made her entrance as Ne-Yo sang wearing this gorgeous, corset-adorned, off-the-shoulder number.
