Framing the Perfect Moment

May 20th, 2019

Aruba’s landscapes offer inspiring environs that provide ideal island canvases for your wedding celebrations—from breathtaking beaches to majestic seaside cliffs to lush, tropical gardens.  From a decorating standpoint, Mother Nature has already done a lot of the heavy lifting, but there is always room for personal touches and infusing your taste and style into your décor.  One of the most-photographed elements of your décor will likely be the arch from your ceremony…after all, this is the very spot for that magical “I do” moment.  Not only does the arch provide a sense of place for the nuptials, but it’s the frame to some of your most important wedding photos. 

Aruba’s florists and wedding and event planners are incredibly creative, offering simple yet tasteful solutions for tight budgets; unique and eclectic creations for those wanting something completely unexpected; colors and décor items that match the overall theme of the wedding; and pure luxury and extravagance for couples wanting an arch that oozes elegant sophistication.

We’ve combed through a few past weddings on the island, and created a varied collection to help you with your vision for your destination wedding on Aruba.

Keeping it simple, fresh, and affordable
