My Fiancee and I recently went to Aruba for a destination wedding. For those familiar with Aruba, We stayed at the Tamarijn and the wedding was the Divi next door on the beach during sunset. We actually got engaged the day after the wedding. The wedding was amazing, Aruba was amazing, and it was that great week that made the decision easy for us that we also wanted to have a tropical destination wedding.
Now, since then we have been reading reviews and doing research of places that interested us and made a list. As we went into further details we narrowed that list down to a few places. I am looking for any and all input as far as suggestions, tips or experiences for having a destination wedding.
We are looking for a mid to end of April-ish 2016 timeframe- (Better time of year suggestions appreciated. )
The only child who would possibly be present is her niece who at that time would only be 3. More than likely an adults only resort is what we would be looking for. However a family resort may be necessary in the event that her niece does attend.
The wedding would be people aged between 25- 60
Approx 40 to 50 people
Currently Our list in order consists of:
Excellence Playa Mujares
The Beloved Hotel
Valentin Imperial Maya
-------------------------------------- We are from newyork and flights tend to be significantly cheaper to Mexico then most other caribbean places.
Secrets Royal Beach
Excellence Punta Cana
Hard Rock Punta cana
Any other info you need that can help you, Help us just ask!
Thanks again everyone!
