Destination Weddings (Nuptial Tourism)

a favorite wedding venue for many destination weddings
in the Islands of the Bahamas.
June is traditionally the big month for weddings.  So, it is only fitting that Talkin’ Tourism ring some bells and talk “Destination Weddings."  

Hitting the road to tie the knot seems to be in vogue these days. Maybe a new niche has evolved: nuptial tourism (just kidding).  Without a doubt, more and more couples are opting  to travel to a location outside of their hometown, and they are bringing the entire wedding party with them to witness the "I do's."  Ensuring your wedding day is picture perfect, regardless of the wedding location, is the job of a wedding planner who specializes in destination wedding arrangements.  A wedding ceremony demands attention to each and every detail. Now, try to pull this off in a remote location and it becomes a matter of managing the micro-details!  

This week, we have the pleasure of welcoming AnnaMarie Wintercorn, a certified Master Bridal Consultant, to the show.  AnnaMarie has presided over countless weddings from small hometown ceremonies to large affairs in unique locations.  Radio Man and History Lady already have lots of questions on the “how to” side of things.  The answers should be information and certainly entertaining.  We don’t want anyone to have “Wedding Bell Blues," especially those Godzilla Brides! Yikes!!

In addition to wedding talk, Gary and Robin have lots to catch up on.  Two weeks ago, a regional blackout in the Port Salerno area forced the repeat of the May 25th Abaco show. Then, last Friday, Radio Man was on the other side of the Gulf Stream while Robin (guess what?) attended a wedding here on the Treasure Coast!

Join us Friday morning at 10:05 a.m. on WPSL 1590 AM or streaming live on your computer at This will be an informal, barefoot elegance affair. Wedding gifts may be sent ahead to Palmetto Island....ooops!....almost lost our heads, though host Gary and his bride Misti will be celebrating 22 years of wedded bliss on Friday. Time flies when you're having fun!
