Aruba Wedding

Aruba's Best Wedding Venues

Newlyweds to be are often known to have a very specific vision, and while Aruba wedding packages are always meticulously created to make the planning process a lot easier, they are not for everyone. Some people prefer to let their creativity shine by picking very specific, creative wedding venues. It’s all up to you, but I’ll give some ideas for fun Aruba wedding venues below:

Beach Weddings

With a wide variety of beaches framing the island of Aruba, there’s a nice selection of venues to choose from, ensuring you’ll be able to plan the most beautiful Caribbean beach wedding possible.

One of the most popular beaches for a wedding ceremony is Eagle Beach, and for good reason! Featuring wide stretches of white sand, bright turquoise waters as far as the eye can see, and one of my personal favorite spots to watch the sunset, Eagle is romantic and perfect for a wedding ceremony.

Palm Beach is another one of Aruba’s best beach wedding locations. Couples often opt for the beautiful Palm Beach because of its proximity to some of Aruba’s top tier hotels, resorts and restaurants. If you don’t want to travel far to get to your venue, then Palm Beach may be the perfect spot for a festive ceremony and reception.

Unique Locations

Some couples are just a bit non-traditional. Aruba welcomes all newlyweds to be, even those who crave something a little different. A good wedding planner can help you make your wildest paradise wedding plans happen. What would that look like? Think picturesque vistas, cozy gardens, and baffling ballrooms.

  • North coast nuptials. Why not tie the knot surrounded by the tranquil ambiance of Arikok, Aruba’s National Park? No banquet tables, no arch to stand under, just you, your loved ones and the calming sounds of the Caribbean Sea crashing into the rocks behind you! Of course, this is not just a commitment to your spouse, but also a commitment to nature. Please do not leave anything but footsteps andmake sure to  respect the local flora and fauna
  • Say I do at sea. Many couples choose to get married by the water, but did you know you can actually have your dream wedding on the water? Rent a catamaran equipped with all the luxuries needed for a lavish ceremony and reception or keep it simple just you, your partner and the wide open sea!
  • A ball to remember. Rent a beautiful ballroom or event space at Aruba’s most beautiful restaurants or villas. This will give you the freedom to decorate (or have someone decorate) the venue to your heart’s content.

Churches, Chapel, and Town Hall

For the couples who prefer to honor their classic traditions while adding some Caribbean flair, some of the most popular Aruba wedding venues are town halls, churches, and chapels. One of the most beloved chapels to get married in Aruba is the Alto Vista Chapel. The views from the chapel are stunning, providing an unforgettable picture perfect experience only Aruba wedding venues can provide.

Aruba's Best Wedding Planning Services

It’s only natural for couples to worry about the work that goes into planning Aruba weddings from a distance. While some prefer to tackle this on their own as their very own personal project, many opt to make use of a wedding planning service. The good news is that Aruba has a number of great service providers available, offering everything from specialty photography to delicious catering and floral arrangements! Here are some great options!

G+L Weddings

With marriage equality being more and more prominent all over the world, it is important to have a wedding planning company that caters to LGBTQ+ needs specifically. Unfortunately, legal marriage equality hasn’t made its way to Aruba quite yet, but that does not mean that couples that are part of the community aren’t welcome to have a loving ceremony here. Just keep in mind that the legal portion would have to take place in a country or state where this is possible. G+L Weddings makes sure to take care of everything else.
