    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,

      I agree... aruba is very pricey. If you are open to it, I will reconsider the destination.

        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!
