We would like to keep it around $100pp for food and drinks- not sure if that's ideal. As far as location we will have adults, kids, partiers, non partiers .... As long as we have music we will have a good time.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Mmack: Yes.. everything was amazing and such a once in a lifetime experience. I've learned so much with  this planning. I'm working on a review and hope to get it done soon.  Are there any specific questions that I can answer?

 

Overall... enjoy this time with you and your fiance.  It will be stressful but remember it's one day--- just the beginning of your life together.  Keep it simple... you don;t need too much decor.. we skipped floral centerpieces and had laterns only... I liked how it turned out. You're having a wedding on a private island. What can beat that?? It will be magical.. an experience for you and your guests like no other.

 

One last piece of advice----- don't sweat the small stuff---- If I could do it all over again I would worry only half the time!

Congrats! Can't wait to hear about your experience at the Ren. I am now working with my second travel agent to get more info and am hoping (praying) to hear back tomorrow from her. I'll keep my eyes peeled for your review!

I don't know about pricing but here you're looking at anything but the Bucuti as I'm assuming you want to be with your guests and you want the wedding to be at the location you're staying at.

 

Besides pricing do you have any other requirement? Total Privacy, somewhat private to not private with a few onlookers. Outdoor reception or indoors.

 

I know of a great DJ, I can recommend you.

 

How may guest are you expecting? I need his info t know what I can get out of the WP's.

HELP!smile35.gif

 

Online you would not find anything like that. Is there something in particular you're looking for? As there is not really such thing as Aruban Christmas Ornaments. A few local arts and craft people just might have something but it's not a trademark thing of Aruba t have these.

Thanks for responding Bryan. When I was Aruba last September I bought 2 ornaments from a souveneir shop at the market place at the Renaissance Hotel. Something carribean like a palm tree, someone under it, etc. Any idea how I can get that?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
