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.

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?

When Raquel Alphonse and Ted Drougas decided to tie the knot, the bride-to-be knew she wanted a destination wedding. “My dad’s favorite ‘paradise’ was always Aruba,“ shares the bride.

I first met Ashley and Nick this past February when they were on the island for round two of planning their dream destination wedding in Aruba, confirming details and signing agreements with their chosen vendors in anticipation of their June 3rd nuptials. Engaged in April of 2015, the couple gave themselves a little over a year to plan the wedding that was perfectly designed just for them. And these two definitely know how to plan a wedding—they are both event planners for Personal Touch Experience, a top catering, event, and wedding company servicing New York and New Jersey.
