    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.
