Couples who yearn for a bit of island authenticity weaved into their nuptial celebrations may want to consider the island’s “party bus” tradition. In Aruba, we often go on a “paranda”—our version of barhopping. We gather friends together and caravan around the Island, hitting up local bars that are a little off the beaten, touristy path. Chartering a party bus for one of your wedding events can be a joyful addition to your guests’ experiences here.

It’s an island’s island—a lush, 40-acre retreat just a few hundred yards off of Aruba’s harbor—reachable by boat shuttle from the water launch at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino.

“I only saw Emmanuel in school…he was a very quiet young fella and I was the more talkative and outgoing person,” explained Djuna.

However, in 2013 they stumbled on each other’s profile on a dating website, exchanged numbers, and eventually went on a date.
