    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.

You will love Aruba!!

         

        Let me know if you have any questions.




        Our wedding is in 11 weeks!!! Can't wait to be a Mrs.!!

          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.

                  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?
