Hey Jess,

 

I also e-mailed the hotel two weeks ago now and have heard nothing back. I really want to get married at this hotel, I have friends who have been there and said it was amazing! I am thinking that I will have a large group of around 50 people. I know of 30 people so far that are for sure coming. When I hear back for the hotel I will fill you in on the details!

Katie,

I've been trying to get in contact with the wedding planner Kim at the Occidental to set a date and she NEVER gets back to me. It's so frustrating!! If it wasn't such a beautiful resort, I would have went elsewhere by now. We're trying to set a date late March/early April 2011. Happy planning!

Hi ~

 

My name is Carrie and I'm new to this forum. I got engaged a month ago and would love to plan a wedding next fall at the Renaissance hotel. I sent my information to the wedding planner and are waiting to hear back as well. We're looking to have about 50-75 people at the wedding. Does anyone know if the private island can accomodate this many?

Katie,

 

Congratulations on wedding in Aruba. I can definitely recommend a great photographer who does alot in Aruba. He did my wedding and is very good and dependable. He lives in Miami, Florida. Well worth investment in beautiful photos. His site is www.frankpanarophotography.com

I have not seen many good photographers available in Aruba so check him out. Weather is always warm and dry in Aruba with very little rain and always a breeze which helps cool things down. Beautifull warm turqoise waters to swim in and real clean sand. You will love it there. People are real nice also.

Enjoy Aruba and Best of Luck always !!!![/b]

    • 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?
