    sometimes in aruba during hurricane season June 1 - Nov 30, but mostly Sept/Oct, when there is a hurricane north of aruba (even by many hundreds of miles) the storm seems to suck away the tradewinds away from aruba.

    aruba is on the edge of the hurricane belt and rarely gets a direct hit.

    currently no breeze right now 8:40am

    I thought for sure the right answer was "ME!". We are going this year in late September and early October, hope the winds hang around for us. We've been there when the trades were gone, and boy was it HOT!

    thanks, Andrea. I did check that out. I only want to know a basic answer, will candles stay lit outside at night by a pool at the Radisson in the beginning of October or will the wind still blow them out, lol....

    will the candles be protected by sconces?
    if not, probably no, no matter the season.

    ask lisa your wedding planner

    and as arubalisa made mention in another thread about airport lines in another thread........there are some things that one cannot even make guesses on.

    ex: there has been nary a breeze here in aruba for the past few days. this is not the norm. i do not think though that a candle would stay lit though , because there is an occasional puff of breeze just to get our hopes up.

    are you sure they are not using torches instead of candles poolside?

    also too, bring these questions into the wedding category
