I'm in the middle of planning a wedding and I'm very disappointed in the blatant lack of women of color, particularly black women, in the wedding industry. Even when I was searching for photographers, no one ever show cased black weddings. You really had to dig in their archives to find interracial couples, black couples, visible minorities, etc...

Anybody else who has planned or is planning a wedding feel like this? Where did you find your inspiration for your wedding?

I think a large amount of sisters do get married but the wedding is more a helping each other along the way process, where the coordinator is someone from the church, the photographer is a known friend, etc.

I found a good number of black people for my wedding but I got married in the DC metro area

A black woman did my hair, another did my makeup and another was my photographer (my second choice would have been a black man)

I also almost hired a black wedding planner

I was also able to get married at a historically black church
