Hello my name is Katie and I am planning on having my weeding in Aruba next July 2011! I have not yet booked anything, but I am thinking of booking at the Occidental Grand. Does anyone have any information about weddings at this hotel?? Any information would be great! Thanks!

HI Katie,
Welcome, I'm also a fellow Aruba bride getting married on Renaissance Island. Not sure about the Occidental Grand but you should be able to find all the info you need in this forum. Just do a search and a ton will come up. Good luck in planning..

Hi Katie,

Congrats on picking such a beautiful location for your wedding! When we first knew we wanted a DW, Aruba was our first choice, but for financial reasons, we decided on Riviera Maya.

I just wanted to tell you that FI and I stayed at the Occidental Grand Aruba for a week for NYE 2006/2007 and absolutely loved it! It's a great location, the pool is fabulous, staff was so friendly -- I don't think you'll be disappointed. All the restaurants were pretty good, the only one we weren't crazy about was the Italian.

While I dont have any of their wedding package info: there is a really good open air tropical/seafood restaurant at the resort that would be perfect for a private reception. It's off the pool area if memory serves. Secondly, you guys MUST do the Kuku Kanuku party bus as a bachelor/bachelorette party or just a late night group activity. It is absolutely hilarious!



Best wishes !
Tara
