Fall Leaves on Wedding Gown Train

September, October, and November are busy, busy months, especially for wedding guests who have children. That doesn't mean you shouldn't get married in the fall but keep in mind important football games and holidays if you actually want your guests to attend. Sandy says die-hard football fans don't think anything is rude about finding a television to watch at the wedding venue, instead of participating in activities.

Groom Wanted a Shark


Themed weddings can be a fantastic way to celebrate your big day, and you’re not required to carry the theme through all of your events. It also makes planning the décor much easier. Sandy says the bride and groom, and at least some of their friends and family, have to be totally committed to the theme in order for it to work. But when it works, the results can be spectacular.

Alexander Hamilton history buffs and fans can now have a "Hamilton"-themed wedding on the tiny island of Nevis in the Caribbean. The Four Seasons Resort Nevis has taken the mad popularity of the Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical and figured out a way to incorporate the romance of Nevis island with the history of Alexander Hamilton, in a package designed to feature both. Sandy's is seriously impressed!

Weddomg Cakes and Tarts

 

There are so many different kinds of food allergies and sensitivities today that weren’t an issue 20 years ago, and it’s causing challenges for brides and grooms planning their wedding menus. Sandy says you should show sensitivity to your guests’ needs and preferences, but you don’t have to take a survey of who-can-eat-what and work around that. Your wedding menu should be things you like, and things most people can eat. Just do your best to accommodate as many folks as you can without giving up the vision you have for your party.

No Talking

 

Sandy shares a true story of a very embarrassing mistake she made at a wedding her first year planning in Puerto Rico. It didn't do any harm -except to her ego - but it taught her to be very careful which dialect her Spanish-speaking wedding guests use before she demonstrates her own language skills at a client's wedding.

Tara Reid on weTVs Marriage Boot Camp

Tara Reid belongs on "Celebrity Rehab," not WEtv's "Marriage Boot Camp." She and Dean May are faking a relationship to be on this show, and in the process, they're hurting the experience for the other four couples who are trying to save their relationships. Sandy's a regular reality TV blogger for MonstersandCritics.com, and she usually restricts her commentaries to stuff she's written. But Tara Reid is wreaking such havoc on "Marriage Boot Camp" that Sandy had to do a rant for her podcast, too.
