Aruba Wedding

Recommended Posts


I met with Lissy Lamp when I was in Aruba either this year and she was rude.  Her email correspondence was great, but I was not impressed when I met her.  I ended up meeting with Lorraine Versteeg from Aruba Wedding for You and she was amazing! We ended up signing our contract with her.  


Who did you speak with about catering?  I am working with Divi catering people now but I am just afraid that I am missing something!

Congrats Aruba Brides! I've made designed various pieces of jewelry inspired by the beautiful island of Aruba. It's definitely one of my favorite places :) If you're looking for barefoot jewelry, hair accessories, etc. for you and your bridesmaids, please feel free to reach out! I've attached some pics below. As a former destination wedding bride I know how important the jewels are! :)

How funny! I also met with Lorraine Versteeg and was not impressed with her. Too wishy-washy for me. She was the planner that the Divi All-Inclusive's website lists, but we asked Lissy Lampe if she could do it instead. To be fair, Lissy does have a practical, straight forward way about her, but so do I. Regardless of her personality, her execution was great.


My reception was at the Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort (ceremony was across the street, on the beach at the Divi/Tamerijn All-Inclusive). For the catering aspect, we dealt with Marcel Nahr. He's the Food and Beverage Manager for that resort. He was very good. Very welcoming and warm. Never made us feel that any of our modifications were troublesome. He made sure to be personally present throughout the reception. According to his e-mail signature, he handles the Dutch Village/Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort. If you'd like to contact him anyway, his e-mail address is marceln@megaresorts.com.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
