  1. This is very late but wanted to do a review on our Aruba wedding: First and for most Aruba is amazing it was definitely the right choose. We used Aruba weddings by Bonny and had the wedding at the Divi Phoenix. The Divi Phoenix was great clean, friendly, safe, and it is kind of all alone at the end of the beach so you never had to fight for a spot on the beach. The service at the restaurants were a little slow but it was ok. The Divi Phoenix did an amazing job at the wedding they were definitely not slow that night they were right ion top of everyone at the wedding (in a good way) getting drink orders and what ever else. They were very professional and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The food was absolutely amazing, Aruba weddings by Bonny. She truly did an amazing job she and her team work hard to make the day what you want it. They were out on the beach early making sure the area was clean and set up just right. My favorite part was the isle in the sand, I saw many other wedding while I was there and didn't see that once. The hardest part is being so far away making all these decision and it was nice to see that all the pictures and conversations we had and shared really were conveyed the day of the wedding. Tino was the DJ he was great, so much fun we didn't stop dancing the entire night. Only thing is he didn't play that many slow songs and when he did it was 4 in a row then all fast, but we didn't care we just kept dancing. Winklaar Photography did the pictures he did an amazing job, one suggestion I have is defiantly know what pictures you want before you go. I hate getting my picture taken so I didn't put any thought in to it and just wanted him to do what ever. He did an amazing job and knew great pictures to take but I definitely have seen some after the wedding of other brides and grooms and wish I did a little more research. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

I emailed the wedding planners @ the Divi over 4 months ago 3x and still have yet to hear back How is the planning going? I am trying to figure it all out now picking the food flowers and such. Are you getting your hair done there? I need a place for my BM to get there hair done I have my hairdresser/friend coming and she is doing my hair. are you having your reception on the beach? YAY happy planning !!!
  8. Hi ladies great ideas thanks so much!!! I have 3 BM- GM and one MOH- Best Man we are buying the dresses $100ech and grooms man best man outfits not sure price yet. paying for the MOH passport. We was thinking of paying for an excursion for each person in wedding party plus there significant other/guest (do you think that's not personal enough?) We are also doing a snorkeling trip for every one who is coming. Do you think this is ok?
