Trash it or treasure it? Post-wedding shoots are more popular than ever. For some, it’s a chance to wear that dress one more time before pressing and packing it away. For others, it’s an opportunity to capture the beauty of the bride (and sometimes groom) in a more relaxed, fun, and creative environment once the wedding is over.

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.

Aruba’s spectacular beaches are world-renowned and the ideal setting for your dreamy island wedding. Each beach setting has its own unique vibe, and one of our favorites is Renaissance Island. 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. The two didn't keep in touch after graduating high school in 2000, but through social media, reconnected in 2006. “It wasn't until the launch of Facebook several years later where we just made a simple friend connection, but we never established a consistent line of communication between one another,” informed Djuna. However, in 2013 they stumbled on each other’s profile on a dating website, exchanged numbers, and eventually went on a date.

When in Rome…make that when in Aruba! Adding local and regional touches to your destination wedding,enhances that special sense of place to your event. The craft cocktail scene is bigger than ever, and including a signature craft cocktail at a wedding reception is also on-trend.

In numerology, the number six represents harmony. Pythagoreans credit the number six as the first “perfect” number. So what better date for bride Lauren and groom James to choose for their wedding than six years to the day that they had their first date? And what better place to have the wedding than in paradise?
