Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort



I’m writing you from Nassau, Bahamas. Yes, that’s right. I’m escaping the winter chill of Chicago in the islands! Sandals invited a group of wedding planners from The Association of Bridal Consultants to spend some quality time with them. It is a wonderful week of education, entertainment, and relaxation.

Here’s a photo to make you jealous…

Destination Weddings



Wedding season is winding down for the year and I’ve got my mind on one thing: VACATION. It’s time to get away!

My hubby and I are taking off at the end of the month on a week-long trip to Aruba for some much-needed R&R. To prepare for our hiatus, I have been daydreaming about white sandy beaches, palm trees swaying in the breeze, glorious orange sunsets, friendly locals, and frosty pina coladas (served in coconuts with little umbrellas, of course).

Alas! Never one to forget about my job for long,  I’ve decided that fantasizing about planning fabulous destination weddings where I get paid to coordinate these things for adorable clients in flowing sheath dresses and crisp linen pants is a much better use of my time.

While we haven’t done a destination wedding  per-se (do Lake Geneva and Northwest Indiana count?), don’t rule us out for your out-of-town nuptials. We’d love to work with you and your family to come up with a plan for tackling your Destination Wedding with as much style and enthusiasm as we have for the Windy City…and maybe more if the destination is insane!

That being said, I’ve decided to dedicate as many pre-vacation blogs as I can to Destination Weddings until I get this out of my system. Stay tuned for fun and exciting blogs about destination wedding trends!
