Newbie! Aruba anyone?!?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!!! I recently got engaged and have decided on a destination wedding in Aruba (2.20.2010)! We are visiting Aruba in April and have appointments to see the Radisson and the Renaissance. Has anyone been to either resort? Is one more expensive than the other? Any thoughts and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated:)

 

Also, I noticed a lot of people are hiring a wedding coordinator in addition to working with the hotel. What are the reasons for this? How much are their fees?

 

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Mandy,

I'm also recently engaged and planning a destination wedding in Aruba April 2010. I've received information from the Marriott, Hyat, and the Westin. They are all comparable in price. The MArriott has a per person price that includes everything- linens to flowers. Or a la carte options. Do you have the contact information for the Renissance? I haven't heard back from them and I'm very interested in having the wedding there.

 

I'm not hiring a wedding coordinator. All of the resorts I've been in contact with provide them.

Welcome!!

According to what Maureen said, i would choose the Raddison. It sounds amazing for a beautiful wedding, and like it would really wow your guests.

As far as wedding coordinators, some brides use them, some only use the resort. Personally, the only outside vendor that I had was my photographer, so I didn't feel the need to use a seperate wedding coordinator. Instead I spent the extra cash on flying my photographer in and having a private reception.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
