What would you really like to know?
I've shot multiple weddings at 2 out of the three locations and might be able to answer your questions.

Lissy Lampe fro Ceremonies & Celebrations was the best wedding coordinator. She was super responsive to my emails and there for the ceremony making sure everything went as planned. She arranged for a great DJ, steel drum band player, beautician for hair & makeup who I would also recommend.
We had dinner at the Manchebo in the outside pavillion, the food was excellent.
Our photographer was Paul Van Driel and he did an outstanding job. You can see photos on Flickr - search for Baur Aruba Wedding.
We rented 2 villas (google Aruba Family Compound) which worked out really well.
Last thing, stop by Tasca La Casada and say hi to our friend Victor and his wife. It's a good restaurant/bar, excellent food, very reasonable prices and it's off the beaten path but not far from the high rise hotels.

All this information is so helpful! My fiance and I are planning our wedding for april 2010 in Aruba. I really want to have the ceremony in St Fransiscus Church & Beach reception on Renaissance Island. I haven't heard back from the Renaissance hotel yet... Does anyone have any information they could forward to me? firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm also looking for reccomendations on photographers- should I fly one in from NY? I would prefer to use someone local as long as they come highly reccommended. My fiance and I are going to be heading down to Aruba this April (19th-26th) to start the planning process. I'm also looking to plan below:
-Cameran for the day/afternoone (any suggestions??)
- Hairdresser to come to me and my bridal party- or a recomendation of a great spa
- Any information on Tierra del sol We want to host the rehersal dinner there.
-Also any information on getting married in a Catholic church in Aruba. Is is true that you have to bring your own US priest?
Any information would be so helpful! Thanks in advance!

Any more questions I'll be glad to help.
