Hi everyone-I am newly engaged and considering Aruba for our destination wedding.  I hear it is fabulous!  


However, I have never been nor can I afford to go before the wedding to scout locations.  So I need some honest feedback...would prefer an all-inclusive as we like to have drinks on the beach and a place where I can have the actual wedding on the beach!  I hear so much about the high-rise area vs the low-rise area and the reviews seem split.  Any opinions/experiences you can share would be very appreciated especially if you've been to the Divi all-inclusive or any of the sister resorts.  Thanks in advance!!!

RobinLynn15 - it really depends on what you are looking for.  But all of the all inclusives have benefits and disadvantages.  But as an FYI you can get All Inclusives at the Marriott Stellaris for a group.

Hello I am new to this group. We have decided to get married in Aruba in 2017 and I am considering the Occidental. I would love to talk to some who have been there or are planning their wedding now. There is so much to do and Since I can't go before the wedding to meet vendors I could use a little help. And pictures. Thanks

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
