Before you give up on that tropical beach wedding – or honeymoon! — Aruba has something to say. As of this week, the Aruba Tourism Authority is happy to announce the ‘Happily Ever After Guarantee.’ AKA, a postponable destination booking policy for couples who are dreaming of booking a 2021 wedding or honeymoon but worried about travel being affected by the current pandemic.

Here at GWS we see a lot (and we mean a LOT) of couples who view their wedding as an opportunity to go somewhere special and do something different. With travel bans in place, we know that means many of you may have put aside plans to say your vows and/or celebrate abroad. BUT because people are genuinely amazing when it comes to banding together to make good of a hard situation, Aruba isn’t ready to let you let go of that dream!

Enter the ‘Happily Ever After Guarantee!’ You can now book your 2021 wedding or honeymoon with the participating hotel or resort venues of your choice with confidence — here’s how. If your event is affected by coronavirus pandemic issues, you can postpone for up to a year from the original date simply by providing a 30-day notice period.

And in case you need us to convince you that jetting off to Aruba is a good idea, we’re totally prepared to do just that!

The Weather is Actual Perfection

Saying your vows in Aruba most likely means a beach will be involved. Aruba is actually located outside the hurricane belt and boasts an average daily weather report of sunshine and 82 degrees. Perfect beach weather, practically guaranteed.

Aruba is Closer than You Think

What’s better than a tropical destination? One that isn’t so far away that you’re exhausted by the time you arrive. Direct from NYC, Chicago, Boston, or Dallas, Aruba is about a 5-hour flight.
