ARUBA – One Happy Island
Aruba is a tiny Dutch Caribbean island located off the coast of Venezuela. The island has a somewhat European influence that shows in both its architecture and even the language with English, Dutch and Spanish spoken alongside Papiamento – the local language. Aruba is famous for its divi-divi trees, a tree that slopes south-westernly due to the constant trade winds that breeze over the island.
Thinking about a destination wedding? Aruba is one dream destination for weddings. The island sits in beautiful crystal-blue waters of the southern Caribbean, below the hurricane belt which makes it home to year-round 82-degree weather. That is almost a guarantee for a beautiful sunny wedding day! Imagine getting married – barefoot in the white sand surrounded by your family and closest friends. After the ceremony, you and your guests enjoy a wedding dinner, drinks and dancing the night away. Your dream wedding can become reality with a variety of resort choices that will suit your style and budget.
From snorkeling to horse-back riding to shopping, there are activities for every one of your guests in Aruba. In the days leading up to your wedding, the bridal party can spend a relaxing afternoon at the spa while your guest try their hands a paddle boarding. The groomsmen can play a round of golf or do some deep-sea fishing. As the sun goes down, everyone can meet for dinner and talk about their adventures of the day.
The only requirement for a legal marriage in Aruba is a simple civil ceremony at Aruba’s Town Hall. After that, couples can have a religious or non-denominational blessing wherever they want – on the beach, in a garden gazebo or atop a picturesque vista.
Aruba is one romantic island, surrounded in warmth and love. What couple couldn’t fall in love with stretches of white-sand beaches, swaying palms, secluded coves and absolutely spectacular sunsets that this one happy island has to offer. Relax and toast to your love on a luxury sunset sail; have a romantic dinner on the beach or enjoy a couple’s massage on the beach. For couples looking for a little more adventure, how about tandem parasailing, snorkelling, kitesurfing, or hike to a secluded cove in Arikok National Park and just enjoy the view.
For total relaxation, alabaster beaches and gentle seas have always been good for the soul. Or, get pampered at the resort’s spas to regain inner harmony and indulge in an exotic menu of indulgent treatments.
Couples can do it all or do simply nothing at all. Aruba is the perfect place for a Rom
