Waves washing on a white sand shore, sunsets to inspire the soul, palm trees, and an array of activities that will keep your days busy and fun make weddings in Aruba romantic and amazing. An Aruba beach wedding any time of day automatically has a gorgeous backdrop, and the nearby hotel resorts or beach villas that are numerous on the island are the perfect places to honeymoon.
Many hotels offer Aruba wedding packages with features ranging from planners to help you with as many details as you like, to giving you access to spaces in the resort for your ceremony, to providing amenities and activities, to catering, to, of course, a room to stay in during your time on the island. Aruba wedding packages provide someone there on the island to make sure your perfect wedding is waiting for you when you arrive. Resorts in Aruba frequently have everything you'd ever need — restaurants, night life options, beaches nearby, casinos, shopping centers — right on their grounds. Choose an all inclusive resort such as the Divi All Inclusive or Occidental Grand if you want every detail down to your beverages and meals included in one price.
Not everyone stays in the resorts in Aruba. Another fantastic option for weddings in Aruba is to stay in a beach villa. Private wedding planners are easy to find online and can help with the legality and official details, while a villa provides a more private and intimate setting for the ceremony or honeymoon. Many villas are located on the beaches, as well as in communities such as Tierra del Sol.
Weddings in Aruba are just recently legally possible, however, honeymooning has always been popular on this beautiful Caribbean destination. The One Cool Honeymoon (OCH) program is a perk for any newly weds signing in at nearly any resort in Oranjestad or Palm Beach. Let your hotel know when you book a reservation that you are honeymooning there and you will receive a bottle of champagne in your room to welcome you, a gift, and a free night if you return to the resort on your anniversary the next year.
Of course, there is a practical side to getting married in another country as well. For a legal ceremony, Aruba weddings must take place in the Civil Town House. Make sure to provide official birth certificates, passports or ID, if you have witnesses they must also have passports or ID, certificates of no impediment (obtainable from the Department of Health), divorce decrees if either party has been divorced, and death certificates if either party has been widowed. Documents have to be reviewed at least a month in advance. For more details, talk to a wedding planner or coordinator in Aruba.
