Aruba Aruba Aruba!
#1 it.is.AMAZING! The weather is awesome. It barely rains, and when it does, it is usually at night. Aruba has awesome tradewinds that keep you nice and cool in the hot weather.
#2 It is VERY safe, so your guests can venture off the resort and see all the sights and be rest assured of their safety.
#3 The drinking water is perfectly safe, so you won't have to worry about any of your guests getting sick.
#4 The people are GREAT!
#5 Aruba has some fantastic restaurants with great food!
I know that the Bucuti Beach Resort does a lot of destination weddings. I will post a link to their site. I actually looked at it, but was quickly told no by my family, lol.
You need to make a decision soon though, because depending on who you are inviting people need to start thinking about vacation time, expenses, ect.
Aruba is seriously awesome. I have never been to the Bahamas, but I can tell you, your guests WILL NOT be disappointed! http://www.bucuti.com/en/weddings/
There is a woman on these boards, called Kargiver who stayed at the Bucuti for her honeymoon, and loved it. Hopefully she will see this thread and give you mroe feedback on the resort. They get wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor.
GOOD LUCK. Let me know if you want any more feed back on the island. I can give you my email address.
Also, there is an all-inclusive resort right next door to the Bucuti called the Divi Aruba All-Inclusive, that some of your guests could stay at, in case the Bucuti is too expensive. I have stayed at the Divi, and LOVED IT!
