A romantic wedding in Aruba

Celebrate your love with the ultimate romantic beach wedding. Sip champagne as the sun sets over the sparkling ocean and the palm trees sway in the warm tropical breeze.

Aruba’s premier, upscale boutique resort, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts were recently named one of the World’s Top 10 Best Hotels for Romance for the fourth year in a row. It offers a warm and intimate atmosphere for your wedding ceremony, renewal of vows or commitment ceremony, and can accommodate up to 50 people in true Caribbean style, with warm and friendly service.

The legal ceremony in Aruba always takes place in the Civil House in downtown Oranjestad. Many couples conduct their legal ceremony in the morning or early afternoon and have their beach ceremony at sunset. Some couples take care of the legal portion of their wedding in their home city and enjoy a beach ceremony here in Aruba.


Bucuti’s professional wedding planner can arrange everything, from the cake to the flowers to the entertainment and beyond.

And to entertain your guests, how about a steelpan band? The charming sounds of the Caribbean are best heard when played with a steelpan. Adopted from eastern Caribbean islands, the steelpan has been introduced to Aruba during its Carnival. Made originally from old oil barrels, the steelpan is now recognized as a musical instrument.
