Hola brides and grooms! I meant what I said in this Huffington Post blog – I’m not going to give you guys these instructions again. I’m going to charge you for them next time!

But between now and then, there are 14 days left for wedding guests to say rude and insulting things to each other. My Huffington Post blog today addresses this problem – what brides and grooms who are saying “I […]

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 […]

Hi there everybody! Last week, I had the pleasure of touring the Hyatt Regency Tamaya in New Mexico to check out their destination wedding offerings. I was impressed!

New Wedding Thank You Note App Is One to Avoid – Sandy’s Blog in The Huffington Post

I’m all for making life easier – no really, I am. But I just cannot cosign the new wedding thank you note app called PunkPost. It’s tacky to not hand-write your thank you notes, but paying somebody else to do it seems even worse. Like I’m too damned busy to properly say thank you, but […]

#JustSayNo – New Wedding App CHARGES No Show Wedding Guests! Sandy’s Blog in The Huffington Post

Just because you CAN do something doesn’t mean it’s a good idea, or good manners. Brides and grooms have historically bitched about no show wedding guests who have RSVP’d “yes” to their wedding, but don’t actually attend. It ends up costing couples a lot more money than they actually needed to spend. And lets face […]

Wedding Planner Rant: Don’t Crowdfund Your Wedding – Sandy’s Blog in The Huffington Post

You just never know what might happen when a public relations agency sends me a pitch – if it’s a stupendously bad idea (like crowdfunding a wedding, for example), I might actually write about it. But not the way they were hoping I would. Weddings have been commercialized to the point where most basic manners […]

Attention Wedding Guests: You Are Not the Photographer! – Sandy’s Blog in The Huffington Post

Hi there! This blog in The Huffington Post was inspired by a Facebook post by an irate wedding photographer who is crazy sick of wedding guests blocking the best shots and ruining the professional wedding photos by holding up their iPads and phones to take their own pics. It’s really a hugely frustrating issue for […]

Groomsmen Gone Wild! Epic Stories of Some of the Worst Members of the Wedding Party – Sandy’s Blog in The Huffington Post

True life, I’ve had more than one client kick a member of the wedding party out after they arrived on the island for a destination wedding. This blog is about some particular groomsmen, but I’ve seen it happen with bridesmaids too. And I’ve had to hunt down those dresses they took with them to reclaim […]
