I haven't gotten married there yet but I am getting Married there in Feb. 2008. My coordinator is Lissy from ceremonies and celebrations. She's been fantastic. We are getting married at the Pheonix Divi. We have 75 guest coming to Aruba for our wedding so it's a rather large destination wedding. She advised the divi was a good place for a larger wedding. Hopefully this is helpful. I will most likely post some pics after the wedding.
I have worked with Wyndham before they became Westin. The location is the same, but much improved and will be better yet. When we left Aruba in November, their reception area was still undergoing renovation, but I can assure you it is going to be very beautiful. Personally I was searching for the website of Premier Weddings as I have never heard of Samantha and not sure if they are Aruba based or not. What I can tell you that many of the staff at Westin are the same people that worked for Wyndham and are very professional. Hope this information helped :-)
The people at the Westin told me the palapa burned down, so they are rebuilding it!! We had to laugh when we heard that!!
Who did you work with at the Wyndham/Westin?
Who coordinated your civil service?
Did you have everyone go to both ceremonies?
We are also getting married in Aruba Feb of 08. We went with Lissy from Celebrations/Ceremonies. We are having our event at the Divi Phoenix as well and went with Bella pictures. Lissy has been nothing but wonderful to work with...I never thought planning a destination wedding could be so stress-free but she has certainly made the experience a good one. Even though we haven't had our wedding yet---only 4 weeks away---I have complete confidence that it will be great--good luck to you!!
