Times of year for wedding in Aruba?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I thought I would tap into the wealth of knowledge out there on Aruba. I am looking at booking October for the Marriott, and due to lodging issues with my family it looks like I might need to look into early November. Are there any issues out there I should worry about regarding the timing? I guess that is one of the reasons Aruba is so wonderful, its always nice weather. Are there any issues with room costs, air flights, weather, etc I should think about regarding October/November?

 

Thanks for sharing!

My fiance and I went to Aruba in 2008 during Thanksgiving week. It rained consistently (not just a shower) for the first 4 days then it was bright sunny and hot the last four days. I think it was something like the 24th throught the 2nd of december. People kept assuring us it never rains like this in Aruba. Go figure. Good luck with your planning. We loved Aruba once the sun came out. We stayed at the Riu Palace and it was great!

My FI and I are getting married in Aruba this October. We have our flights, resort stay, and wedding locations booked and so far so good. We never been so I don’t know from experience. From what I am told by people who have been there that it is always gorgeous, windy year round, an dif it rains it only does for like 5 minutes or something.

 

That’s horrible it rained fro 4 days straight! Like I said I don’t know Aruba, but from what I heard that is out of the norm.

We were just there for a wedding at the Renassiance a few weeks ago and it was a beautiful location. I would try not to fly around the Thanksgiving holiday. Aruba is a a wonderful place to get married though! Happy planning :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
