How much do Aruba wedding packages cost?
Aruba wedding packages can range from $0 to $10,000 or more depending on the circumstances. Many all-inclusive resorts offer free wedding packages when the couple stays a certain number of nights or books a certain number of rooms in a block. On the other hand, Aruba wedding packages can be costly if the couple decides to upgrade their decor options or add on special items such as fireworks, reception entertainment, etc. It really depends on what you envision for your big day.
What is the best time of year to get married in Aruba?
The most popular month for Aruba weddings is August, followed by July and May, but there really is no bad time of year to exchange vows on this happy island. Luckily, Aruba is just outside of the traditional hurricane belt that impacts other Caribbean Islands, so couples don’t have to worry as much about inclement weather. Getting married anytime between January to September is a safe bet, and April through August is where you’ll find the best prices.
How far in advance should I plan my Aruba wedding?
We recommend starting to plan your Aruba destination wedding well in advance (12-18 months is ideal). The recent wedding boom is impacting resort inventory and popular wedding dates are going fast, so it’s smart to inquire right away if you have a special date in mind. Don’t forget, we can assist with finding the right resort based on your needs and will confirm your wedding date with the onsite event coordinator for you.
