Should seem simple right? Why would we spend our days dreaming of ‘I do’s on the white sands of the Caribbean? With all the incredible wedding destinations around the world, it can be easy to get lost while spinning the globe – Aruba Marriott Resort has given us plenty of reasons to stop searching and plan the event of a lifetime on this dreamy Caribbean Isle.

I can certainly relate to the dream of beckoning family & friends to a dreamy beachside wedding. As a real beach bride myself, I can attest to a certain magic of dancing around in your wedding dress barefoot in the sand. With so many incredible travel & wedding destinations out there, the search for the beautiful, affordable, easily reachable venue can be dizzying.

Thankfully, Aruba Marriott Resort checks all the boxes and proves that there’s even more to love about this incredible Caribbean island.

1. The Incredible Views

If you dream of portraits of you and your honey at sunset saying ‘I do’ in front of crashing ocean waves, then look no further, Aruba will enchant you. Imagine lanky palm trees waving over crystal clear waters. Wide white sand beaches and charming thatched-roof palapas. Take photos together cheers’ing on a boat tour or relaxing beachside with a flock of flamingos (seriously!)

Getting married at Aruba Marriott Resort guarantees breathtaking backdrops for wedding photos that will last a lifetime.

2. Impeccable Wedding-Day Weather

And there’s little worry that your wedding-day photos will be interrupted by inclement weather. With an average temperature of 82 degrees and the so-called “rainy season” only dousing a few quick showers overnight from October to January, you can count on beautiful Aruba weather for your wedding day.

3. Endless Floral Possibilities

It’s no secret we’re dying for all things tropical these days. With Instagram & Pinterest exploding with colorful hibiscus, dramatic monstera, bars filled with coconuts and pineapple cocktails & runners made of massive palms – we can’t help but to believe it’s best to go to the source.

When getting married in Aruba, you’ll have access to an incredible world of diverse & colorful flowers and greenery – set to fit any wedding color palette you’ve chosen for your bridal party and decor. Want a rainbow of colors? No better place. Looking for something more subdued? Pair pretty palms with white florals for a classic yet delightfully tropical vibe.

4. Make Your Wedding a Zen Experience

Wake up to the sounds of waves crashing against your ceremony beach. Spend afternoons lounging by the stunning pool. Schedule day-of massages, facials and soak in the exotic fragrance of sugarcane & tropical flowers while your wedding planning team takes care of all of the logistics.

Wedding stress will have a hard time seeping into this blissful paradise.

5. Treat Your Guests to Incredible Food

We were captured immediately by the words “fresh caught seafood”. Sign us up for any wedding that features grilled fish brought in from the day boat. Aruba boasts some of the world’s most incredible seafood accompanied by tantalizing Caribbean flavors like lime, coconut, peppers & tropical fruits.

Tequila poached shrimp on a cucumber chip with mango chutney. Pan roasted crab claws with sweet chili and garlic glaze. Seafood skewers with mango-pineapple chutney. Just a few of our own choices we’d make from the incredible wedding-day menus available at Aruba Marriott Resort.

Not a fish eater? The hotel’s menu also offers enviable options for meat & veggie eaters alike. Count us in for mini Thai marinated beef kebabs with teriyaki sauce, filet mignon and vegetarian sushi rolls (always a wedding favorite!)

6. Plan Events Around Your Wedding Day

When you call your friends and family to join you on an international wedding adventure, it’s usually assumed there will be plenty of enticing things to do around your wedding day. Luckily, Aruba makes it easy.

Water babes will enjoy endless world class snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving (around shipwrecks!) and swimming in the clear blue waters of the Caribbean.

The island also offers plenty of adventures for those less interested in what the beaches have to offer. Explore Hooiberg mountain, a volcanic peak boasting incredible views of the entire island. Visit the aloe museum, Bushiribana ruins, Bubali Bird Sanctuary or one of the islands stunning caves.
