    WOW! You guys are super thoughful. Thanks so much for your greetings and advice. I feel so new to this world of weddings as I've never dreamed of getting married. I've never been one of those girls who had their wedding planned since they were a little girl. So this next year should be quite the adventure.

    Thanks again everyone and I look forward to browsing for info.

      We stayed at the Holiday Inn Sunspree a few years back and ate out most nights. :) This was our favourite restaurant (lobster tortellini). We actually thought about doing our wedding at the Holiday Inn and taking our guests for dinner at MJ's. But now we're seriously contemplating the RIU. Unfortunately, it's very expensive.

      I'm pleased to hear that the 'beds' was the only concern you had re the RIU. That's great news consdering some of the reviews I find online.

      My plan is to send 'Save a Dates' in March and the actual invites in August for a January 2011 wedding. It should all work out. :)

      Thanks again.

        Hi there - can anyone (Canadian) explain the procedure to getting married in Aruba and obtaining a marriage license and certificate? I've been told if I get my license and certificate in Aruba that I can't be registered in Canada. I'll be legally married but won't be registered. I'm reading a lot off the internet and I'm getting mixed messages. I know that if I were to get married in Mexico I could bring the Mexican marriage certificate to Canada and have someone translate it for $200 and be registered in Canada. This unfortunately doesn't apply to every country.

        Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

        Many thanks,

                  Congrats and Welcome! I'm getting married in Aruba this July.

                  As far as the official marriage, I know Aruban weddings are recognized in the US but I'm not sure about Canada.

                  BRIDE + GROOM + 60 GUESTS!!
