Aruba Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

We haven't booked anything yet either. We are hoping to book in June for January. Prices are outrageous right now. We are also contemplating the Holiday Inn Sunspree. We've been - we enjoyed it - and the prices are affordable which means we'll most likely get a lot more guests to come out. I'm a little weary about your challenges - they soon can be mine too. I'll keep you apprised on any developments.

 

Cheers.

So do you mean we would need to get our marriage license AND certificate in Aruba in order to get fully married there? I'm seriously contemplating getting the license here and certificate here (meaning I'd need to pay a visit to our City Hall a few weeks prior to Aruba departure to complete the necessary paper work. I don't prefer this since we'd actually be already 'legally' married at that point prior to Aruba but in the long run, I prefer being registered in Canada vs. Aruba. I wish we could get married there and still be registered in Canada. Ahhhhhh! Oh well. Thanks for your insight TAMaureen.

Hi again,

 

Fortunately, our travel agent just got rates this week for our date of May 2011... rates are really high right now, but booking through our agent, we were able to book the dates to secure the wedding date confirmation through RIU, and we still have the opportunity to re-book at a lower rate when the "Carribean Sale" happens later in the year. From what I've seen so far, it still seems that the wedding packages with the all-inclusive resorts are still more affordable (for the bride and groom) than other non-all-inclusive resorts.

 

Are you using a travel agent? Ask them about the "Carribean Sale" and maybe they can help you out in the same way ours is. She will notify us when the sale begins so that we can alert all of our guests.

 

I hope this information may be helpful to you.

 

Good Luck!

Congrats and welcome, I'm new to this forum too. My husband and I got married at the Marriott. I chose them because, being an admin, I have planned hundreds of meetings with Marriotts around the world. Their exceptional quality and attention to details are consistent no matter what country the event was being planned in. So, even though I was planning it from 2798 miles away (give or take a mile or two), I was sure that the hotel would come through with flying colors for the most important event of MY life ~ my WEDDING DAY.

You girls are lucky.  Aruba was always my top choice but I knew no one could afford it.  But I will definitley make the trip there one day.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
