If you know you want a destination wedding but you haven’t yet settled on a location, allow us to introduce Aruba into the mix. A tiny island in the Caribbean, located outside of the hurricane belt, Aruba has much to offer in the way of privacy and views you just can’t get anywhere else. In the heart of it all is Aruba Marriott, the absolute ideal choice for a dream wedding.
Aruba Marriott is poised and ready to take care of your wedding day details, from the smaller moments like mimosa toasts on the balcony with your bridesmaids to the big events like full dinners and after parties. Your day will be customized to your own style, and for all the down time before and after the wedding, there will be no shortage of fun events for you and your guests!
So, what would a typical day be like for a bride having a destination wedding in Aruba? You might wake up and choose to take in breakfast at La Vista, a restaurant with a beautiful outdoor terrace and delicious breakfast options. After taking in views of the ocean while you nibble, it’s time to get ready with your ‘maids, perhaps sharing a champagne or mimosa toast on the private balcony of your room (each room at the Marriott has one!). Then indulge in some pampering at Mandara Spa, which offers nearly every service under the sun, from body scrubs to massages to waxing to makeup and mani/pedis. After dressing and putting on the finishing touches, head to the beach and stick your toes in the sand while you exchange vows with the love of your life before heading on to the reception at one of the beautiful venues at the hotel.
Not ready for the excitement and fun to end? That’s not a problem, because Aruba Marriott will help you fire things up for the after-party at perhaps the H2Oasis adults only pool, or the Marriott’s very own casino, complete with a VIP club.
Next step: honeymoon! Enjoy your time with your new (official!) spouse exploring the island with a beach Jeep tour from De Palm Tours, a sailing jaunt, a dip in the natural pools, or just relax at the resort and enjoy your private balcony. Enjoy the scrumptious good eats, revel in some of the most beautiful sights around and celebrate and your newlywed bliss!
