Say “I Do” to Aruba, One happy is­land.

Martha Stewart Weddings - - THE PLANNER -

Year af­ter year, count­less cou­ples re­treat to the One happy is­land of Aruba and dis­cover plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to tell their sweetie, “Mi ta stima bo!” – “I Love You” in Papi­a­mento. Home to the num­ber 1 ho­tel for ro­mance in the world and the “Top 10” Ea­gle Beach, Aruba is one of the most re­vis­ited des­ti­na­tions in the Caribbean, with half of all vis­i­tors re­turn­ing an­nu­ally for its year-round 82-de­gree tem­per­a­ture, di­verse land and sea ac­tiv­i­ties across the dy­namic ter­rain, au­then­tic cuisine and cul­ture in­spired by 90 on-is­land na­tion­al­i­ties and, of course, lux­u­ri­ous spa and well­ness ameni­ties to en­sure the One happy is­land of Aruba is an ideal des­ti­na­tion for ro­mance, dream wed­dings and un­for­get­table hon­ey­moons. Aruba’s con­stant sun­shine al­lows any dream beach wed­ding to be­come a re­al­ity, and the is­land of­fers a se­lec­tion of sig­na­ture lo­ca­tions to ex­change “I Do’s.” Cou­ples have the op­tion to share their nup­tials dur­ing a bare­foot beach ser­vice or host their cer­e­mony in strik­ing caves, un­der nat­u­ral bridges and near awe-in­spir­ing reefs. Brides and grooms are of­fered a di­verse ar­ray of ho­tel ac­com­mo­da­tions, din­ing es­tab­lish­ments and land/sea ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able for the wed­ding party to en­joy lead­ing up to the spe­cial day – from a cata­ma­ran ready to set sail at sun­set for a stun­ning re­hearsal din­ner to a bach­e­lor party’s off-road jeep sa­fari to “Conchi,” the nat­u­ral pool, or a golf course hill­top re­cep­tion. Cou­ples look­ing to par­take in the di­verse ac­tiv­i­ties and sub­merge their cel­e­bra­tion in cul­ture of the is­land are able to party Car­ni­val-style down the streets of San Ni­co­las and en­joy live en­ter­tain­ment and lo­cal cuisine at the weekly Carubbean Fes­ti­val, or test their luck at one of the many high-stakes casi­nos. Aruba’s Cel­e­bra­tion Reg­istry al­lows fam­i­lies and friends to give the gift of is­land re­lax­ation or rugged ad­ven­ture in­clud­ing spa in­dul­gences, Jeep sa­fari ad­ven­tures, ro­man­tic din­ners along the Ul­ti­mate Sand Bar and many other is­land-spe­cific gifts – all just a click away. Cer­ti­fied wed­ding plan­ners at­tend to ev­ery de­tail of your dream wed­ding, from the cer­e­mony of­fi­ci­a­tor and wed­ding cer­tifi­cates to flow­ers and pho­tog­ra­phy. Be­fore em­bark­ing on their ro­man­tic re­treat, many love­birds say “I Do” to Aruba’s new Hap­pi­ness Builder on arubashort­­mance – cre­at­ing and shar­ing per­son­al­ized va­ca­tion video itin­er­ar­ies be­fore ever step­ping foot on the One happy is­land. With more than 100 ro­mance, culi­nary, re­lax­ation, ad­ven­ture and cul­tural video vi­gnettes to ex­plore, a dream trip to Aruba is just a click away.­dings
