 This is what brides dream of…grooms enjoy…wedding guests seek…and all will long remember: the AAA Four Diamond Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa, with its one-stop on-site comprehensive bridal services, a full-time dedicated bridal specialist and in-lobby wedding salon. Poised on one of the largest expanses of beach on the island’s pristine Palm Beach, the resort is the preferred “wedding setting” of discerning couples.

Whether taking their vows for the first time or renewing them, couples find the Top Ten Best Reasons To Say “I Do” at the romance-full destination paradise:

1. The resort’s Aruba Weddings by Design comprehensive bridal services and in-lobby wedding salon, under the direction of dedicated, experienced on-site wedding specialist Lisa Dammerman. Always current on the latest wedding trends and with a natural zest for “creative” planning, Lisa is an Aruba native with lifelong relationships among the island’s top florists and pastry chefs as well as clergy, government officials and a variety of special event vendors. She not only helps brides plan “the big day,” she serves as a valued source of guidance, inspiration and support with plenty of personal “hand-holding” that includes consulting and orchestrating all wedding day details, arranging rehearsal dinners and securing preferred rates for all guests. All-encompassing services range from assistance with civil regulations and marriage license needs to menu selections, floral arrangements, entertainment, photography/videography, wedding cakes, and gifts for the bridal party.

2. Year ‘Round Sunny Weather. The resort is entirely outside the hurricane belt with constant

82-degree temperatures, brilliant sunshine, and cooling trade winds that offer confidence to brides planning a wedding during what are traditionally considered rain or snow seasons.

3. 15 acres of romance located in the heart of famed Palm Beach, “Aruba’s Finest Beach”.

6. Picture-perfect settings. Lush tropical landscaping with fragrant gardens, cascading waterfalls, scenic lagoons, and exotic birds make this AAA Four Diamond resort the most photogenic resort in Aruba.

7. Award-winning, world-class oceanfront Larimar Spa. With nine treatment rooms, including those for couples massage, this full-service spa and salon (with hair and nail specialists) pampers brides, grooms and their guests. Known for treatments incorporating indigenous island ingredients, the resort’s 13,000-square-foot spa is the most comprehensive in Aruba and a favorite of spa connoisseurs.
