Aruba is proudly hosting the Caribbean’s largest vow renewal ceremony on the world-famous Eagle Beach on August 8th – where lovebirds from around the globe can “renew your I Do’s” as the sun sets.

Inspiration:
Aruba is known for its big romantic gestures. In 2013, the One happy island warmed the hearts of NYC residents and visitors with a pop-up, heated beach in the middle of Times Square – offering hourly giveaways and an unforgettable vow renewal experience. For the past two years, Aruba has partnered with the Empire State Building to surprise Valentine’s Day newlyweds sharing “I Do’s” atop this iconic building with luxury honeymoons.

As Aruba continues to seek an increased share of romance-specific travel, whether for weddings, honeymoons or couples retreats, the destination prepares for its grandest international gesture yet – a massive, yet chic, vow renewal ceremony on the world’s No. 3 beach, Eagle Beach. A true global effort, couples from all countries will be invited to participate in this romantic affair.
