Aruba (pronounced: Ah-roo-bah) is one of the Dutch Caribbean ‘ABC’ islands, and Aruba weddings are very popular with US travelers. Located off the coast of Venezuela, Aruba is flat and dry with sunny weather, blonde-sand beaches and gentle tide making it a haven for snorkeling and diving. The constant trade winds bend the divi-divi trees in a signature southwesterly direction, and the landscape is strewn with cacti. A truly cosmopolitan island, Aruba’s European influence shows in the colorful architecture that features Dutch gables painted in tropical pastels, while English, Dutch and Spanish are spoken alongside the local tongue, Papiamento.
Oranjestad, the capital of Aruba is packed with beautiful original buildings alongside top class resorts and casinos. Tax free shopping is a real pleasure in the quaint, colorful streets of the beachside town, and at any moment, someone rich and famous can appear on the horizon.
With a special Dutch Caribbean charm and fast-paced sense of excitement, Aruba weddings offer the perfect mix of European, Caribbean and Latin American cultures.
