Greetings to all from a overwhelmed bride to be attempting to have a wedding in Aruba!

Recommended Posts

Hello to all! I am currently a wreck and it's only the beginning of my planning stage! I have always dreamed of having a wedding in Aruba at The Ren since I have stayed there once before with my fiance and had the time of my life! I have contacted the wedding planner and havent heard back yet :(. I really want to have my wedding there but am on a tight budget. Does anyone know of any price ranges or have any tips on how to cut my costs. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!! :D

Hi,

 

You can certaintly cut cost in all areas. First calm down, your wedding will be beautiful and can be done on a budget. I would recommend you read some of the forums here on how to save money and cut costs on your wedding. Aruba is pretty expensive for a wedding so in terms of your budget you might want to pick a more cost effective destination.

 

Bests,

Best of luck planning.  Since you are on a budget, I suggest trying Moomba beach for your wedding.  Most places charge a crazy amount just for the wedding ceremony, they will set up chairs on the beach at no charge when you have your reception there.

Congratulations!  Sometimes it takes a few weeks to hear back unless it is a travel agent...good luck in your planning!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
