    We looked into the Divi, but ended up deciding on Jamaica instead. The Divi & Tam look like great resorts though!!

      Hi... I am getting married in Aruba at the Bucuti Resort on July 24, 2008. I can't wait!!!

      I was a little dificult deciding on a site since everything in Aruba is so beautiful, but I am so happy we decided on the Bucuti. Nashette over there has been so helpful.

      What are your plans for your Aruba wedding?

      I am still trying to decide on types of flowers and to have either a DJ or Caribbean band and I am still up in the air about where we are going to have our welcome dinner. Hopefully we can help each other out.

        Helllooooo!!

        oh my God, i've been waiting for so long to find someone thats getting married in Aruba as well!!

        The Bucuti looks lovely, we can't book that hotel as part of a package from the UK as we haven't been able to go to Aruba from the UK for very long. We went to Aruba last July and it was amazing!!

        We have been dealing with Lorraine from Aruba Weddings based at the Tamarijn, shes been ok but we don't sem to be getting where we want to as far as a reception is concerned!!

        it would be really good to stay in contact with someone who is going through the same thing as me, and hopefully we can help each other!! I'll PM you my email address

            Hi Pauline...

            I was planning on getting married at the Renaissance, but ended up going with the Bucuti. How have things been going with the Ren? What details are you still trying to work out and what type of info are you looking for? Hope I can help :o)

                I am having bout 40-50 people at my wedding and originally I was thinking of having a band, but reciently I decided to go with a DJ. I wasn't crazy about how the bands sounded either and I figured you can't really go wrong with a DJ especially if I give them a list of songs to play. Here is a link so you can hear samples of the Equator Band: http://www.equatorband.com/

                      Hey Paulina...

                      We are getting married on July 24, 2008 and I haven't decided on a DJ yet, I am waiting to see if my WC can get me samples from different people, along with samples of bands too, just to hear the difference. I will let you know if she gets me any. For the ceremony we are going to have a steel pan player.

                      For photography we are using Paul VanDriel as our main photographer (who will be w/ me and the girls getting ready)and then we are also going to hire another photographer to shoot the guys getting ready and the guests as they arrive. I really want to have nice Lenox picture frames as favors so we can take great sunset pictures of each couple/family as they arrive and then I am going to send everyone their pictures once we get back home.

                      For the video we have booked George Jacobs, but now I am rethinking the whole wedding video thing. We were originally doing it b/c we planned to have a huge reception back home where we were going to do a wedding re-cap, but now we are just having everyone come to Aruba, so I don't know if we are still going to do the video. I think I might also get annoyed w/ someone following me around all day videotaping me LOL.
