A How-To Guide for Traveling to Vieques and Culebra Islands

I bet most of you have seen Vieques or Culebra mentioned online or in travel magazines. Both “Jewels of the Spanish Virgin Islands” remain a mystery for most traditional tourists because they’re not highly commercialized like the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. That’s what makes it such a perfect spot for destination weddings and romantic […]

Fun Destination Wedding Invitation Idea That’s Actually Souvenir-Worthy

Hola Mis Novias y Mis Novios! I should have known that Jeremy and Caroline wouldn’t do anything the “usual” way when they hired me to plan their destination wedding on Vieques Island. Caroline’s background in graphic design guarantees that nothing printed out for their wedding guests will be anything less than completely mind-blowing and fantastic. […]

The Real 411 on What It’s Like to Be a Wedding Planner – Sandy’s Blog in BRIDES

Oh, don’t I WISH that being a professional event planner was something nearly as glamorous as Hollywood portrays it. J-Lo made us look lazy and slutty (sorry, but it’s considered poor form to steal the bride’s man when you’re planning the wedding). And Candace Bergen in “Bride Wars” is what I aspire to be… but […]

In two weeks, we’re all going to sigh with relief when the 2016 Presidential election cycle ends. But between now and then, there are 14 days left for wedding guests to say rude and insulting things to each other.

Put the Four Seasons Nevis Resort on Your Bucket List – Sandy’s Blog in The Huffington Post

So you know I’ve spent most of the past 10 years based on tiny Vieques Island, seven miles off the coast of Puerto Rico. I’ve come to assume that all the little inconveniences we encounter on my island are the same things that happen all over the Caribbean. I attribute it to #islandlife. But last […]

It’s Not the REAL Marriage Boot Camp Anymore – Sandy’s Blog in Monsters and Critics

Hi everybody! I haven’t posted any of my reality blogs in awhile because I think most of you come here to read wedding tips. But WEtv’s “Marriage Boot Camp” has long been a favorite show of mine, mostly because I absolutely adore the program directors, Jim and Elizabeth Carroll.

Hola Mis Novios y Mis Novias! No, you don’t need a fiancé visa to marry somebody from Puerto Rico – it’s part of the United States! But if you’re hoping to marry somebody from another country, and bring him or her to the United States (or Puerto Rico) to marry you and stay forever, there’s […]
