TLC has announced it will premiere Wedding Island, a new reality series that will follow wedding planner Sandy Malone and her team of experts as they coordinate nuptials on Vieques Island in the Caribbean, on Wednesday, July 17 at 10 PM ET/PT.
Wedding Island's second episode will air the following night at 10PM ET/PT, the timeslot which will serve as its regular time going forward.
Malone is the only wedding planner on Vieques Island -- which is known for being a beautiful island with limited resources and supplies -- where she manages schedules, crews and complex details to give each bride her dream wedding.
"Sandy and her small 'Weddings in Vieques' team, including her husband, SWAT team commander-turned-wedding-staffer Bill, must rely on vendors who set their watches to the unpredictable and usually lackadaisical 'Island Time,' while praying for the mercy of not only Mother Nature, but often her demanding brides-to-be, who will stop at nothing to see their dream day become reality," according to the network.
Each week, Malone will overcome challenges in paradise such as finding supplies, rushing bridesmaids to the emergency room, ordering helicopter rides last minute, and designing intricate parade floats.
Wedding Island is being produced by 495 Productions.
