Overview

Oranjestad is the historical Dutch capital city on the south coast with tall multicolored houses with carved wood doors & traditional Dutch tiles and Aruban-style roofs. Along the wharf, merchants sell fresh fish right off the boats each morning. This really is a welcoming & interesting place to visit.

Aruba is also well known for its glitzy casinos, many of which are open 24 hrs every day. The resorts & beaches here make Aruba a perfect Caribbean wedding and honeymoon getaway.

Aruba is outside the hurricane belt plus also has no rainy season. It is hot and perfect to visit all year round. If you want to go to the Caribbean during the summer or autumn, Aruba is the place to go because you won't have to take your chances with the weather as you would with other islands.

For weddings to be legally binding a civil ceremony is required. It is then possible to have a blessing on the beach, on a boat or overlooking the sea if wanted.
