Sandals Really Does Have It All For Your Honeymoon – San Antonio Wedding Coordinator

Evening_SwimHave you started thinking about your honeymoon? I’ve written several other blogs about Sandals and just how wonderful it is. But it really is!! I’m a Certified Sandals Specialist and have experienced Sandals first-hand. There are Sandals resorts located all throughout the Caribbean.

  • Jamaica

  • Antigua

  • Saint Lucia

  • Bahamas

  • Grenada

  • Barbados

I’ve recently had a couple of my past clients that I coordinated their wedding get back from their honeymoon to Sandals in Saint Lucia. They stayed at the Sandals Regency La Toc. This is one of their most popular resorts because there are 3 resorts in this area and you can stay at one and play at all 3. There is a 9 hole golf course on this property as well. You can play for FREE too!!

Amy, who got married at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort on May 2nd got back from Sandals on her honeymoon and emailed me, “Oh my gosh, St Lucia was greatness…. It was such a blast!”



The best thing about Sandals is that it is all inclusive. That means everything is included! Here are more reasons you should consider Sandals:

  • All land and water sports (even waterskiing) is included with complimentary instruction and equipment
  • Unlimited scuba diving for certified divers
  • Unlimited rounds of golf (green fees may be additional at Sandals Emerald Bay)
  • Unlimited Gourmet Discovery Dining at up to 16 restaurants per resort
  • Exclusive dine-around program
  • Up to 9 bars per resort
  • Lots of great entertainment scheduled all day throughout the resort
  • Unlimited premium brand drinks
  • Stay at one, Play at any Sandals
  • A free Beautiful Beginnings wedding

  • Trained butlers and concierges for top-tier suites
  • Poolside and beachside cocktail valet service
  • Complimentary basic Wi-Fi service
  • Beautiful beaches!
  • Private offshore island adventures available
  • Tipping, transfers, government taxes all included


You basically go and enjoy yourself without having to pay anything else. I’ve been there before to the Sandals Royal Bahamian and experienced it myself. I paid nothing while I was there and was treated like Royalty! This was THE BEST resort I had ever been too!!

Reflections of 2014 from San Antonio Wedding Planner

blog_headlines_2014For this post, I decided to open up more on a personal level and reflect on 2014. I would say my emotions were all over the place. I started the year off strong with my previous company, Royal Tea Princess Parties – a children’s party planning company, but knew it was time for me to pass the torch on to someone else which was a sad moment for me. I had been doing it for 9 years and it was a struggle juggling this business along with my current business, Royalty Event Parties, and my day-to-day stuff that goes on in my personal life. Let me back track just a little….




I have a 13 year old daughter who acquired brain damage from birth trauma. My life path changed the day she was born and I have done everything I can to be a strong advocate for her and be there for her day-to-day needs. I dress her, bath her, brush her teeth and hair, wipe her face and hands after each meal, & help with bathroom duties. All the little things we take for granted I do for her every day. Now that she is a teenager her hormones are high and her behaviors change all the time. She is also diagnosed with an array of other things but the top 2 are mood disorder and anxiety. I also have a son that gets frustrated at times so that can add to the stress. Just like a roller coaster, she has high/great days and also low/hard days. I am constantly working on making it better each and every day!




In June, I ended up selling my business to my old employee. It was a bitter sweet moment for me. It was hard to let it go after building it up and hosting over 900 parties! It was my baby and I wanted this company to continue on…and it has! I feel good about the decision and she is doing fantastic with it! I did this so I could focus more of my time and attention to Royalty Event Parties, my wedding consulting business.

facebook_ad_vintage_edited-1I began my invitation services in 2014 as well. I partnered up with Carlson Craft and Printswell and started 2 online storefronts. I meet with the couples one-on-one and give them the customer service they deserve in a non-pressure, relaxing environment.





I was able to attend 2 bridal shows in 2014 and loved it!! I met so many brides and helped many with their invitations and consulting needs. I helped many couples with their wedding by providing day of and full service coordinating. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE watching the couple as they see their reception all set up for the first time. All those months of planning has finally arrived and their excitement, tears, & laughter is carried into my heart. I feel so blessed to be a part of their most special day.


Also in 2014 I attended the Sandals training program and became a Certified Sandals Specialist and also went to Nassau, Bahamas to become a WeddingMoons Specialist. I have been working with couples in planning their dream honeymoon in a budget they can afford! I can also assist in destination weddings there too. In the past, I went to Mexico and toured the Palace Resorts and became trained with their wedding/honeymoon packages as well.


I have had a very busy year! I have lots of “New Beginnings” in store for 2015 and will be adding and changing parts of my business. I am in the process of working on them right now and can’t wait to reveal them in the near future!! The season is here for proposals and new engagements. I am looking forward to talking to new couples and helping make their special day the most memorable moment of their life! Happy New Year!!! Here’s a cute proposal I found…

If you need assistance with your wedding please contact me, Trudy Scott, at 210-595-9263 or email me at I am looking forward to a great 2015!
