    gettin married Oct 15 - how is the weather that month?

    I keep hearing mixed reviews about the weather in October in Aruba. Some people say its slightly more windy, some people have had rain.. Is it a bad idea to get married this month?? Not that i can change it now but atleast i can be prepared

    I can confirm Lisa's info. We are regular Oct visitors and the rains, if they come are mostly overnight and very early morning. Many more are predicted than actually fall. I would not call the winds anything out of the ordinary or anything less than would make the air temp more uncomfortable. When the tradewinds fall below 10mph Aruba can get a bit warm.

    Life certainly has no guarantees but if you stay away from the early morning hours you chances are good for great wedding weather. Congratulations and good luck,
    Aruba where the toughest question each day is "where to dine tonight".

    October / November is what we would call the rainy season in Aruba and there is typically not much wind. When it rains, it is just for a few minutes and rarely interrupts wedding plans.

    aruba is humid.
    not like orlando or atlanta in august humidity.....certainly not that bad.
    the aruba tradewinds make the humidity easier to bear.

    it is all about the tradewinds making the air very pleasant and the humidity not so horrible feeling.

    Aruba has never-ending trade-winds. There is always plenty of wind to cool things down a bit.
