When you begin planning a Caribbean wedding, it is natural that one of your first thoughts is going to be about where you should hold your wedding. Wedding planning is a very exciting time, especially if you are one of the lucky ones to have a Curacao wedding. If you are going to have a destination wedding, you have already done most of the thinking about what you need from your location. Couples often have destination weddings because they don’t want to have the big “to do list” of a 400 person wedding with a huge wedding party – but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have big Curacao weddings. too.
Why Have A Curacao Wedding?

Once you have agreed that a destination wedding is one that you want, the next question should be where to have that wedding. Obviously, we think that Curacao is one of the best spots to do it. Why?
The weather isn’t a challenge like some other islands. The beautiful weather for Curacao weddings is nearly always outstanding, with ocean breezes aplenty, and a hot tropical climate to enjoy. Fortunately, Curacao is outside of the hurricane belt, making it more likely you will have nicer weather.
You will have your choice of open-air venues. Whether you want to get married near the beach or in a beautiful garden, the wedding venues on Curacao can be among the most beautiful ones you’ve ever laid your eyes on. Whatever wedding theme you want to have, you can make it a reality.

The food is absolutely great. Even if you don’t have a large wedding (or even if you do), you still want to make sure that your Curacao wedding guests are well taken care of. Food in Curacao is some of the most delicious food in the Caribbean. There are freshly caught fish, amazing stews, and of course tropical fruit. The resorts we recommend also have trained chefs that can make almost all the food you want – even if you have food allergies.
There is no better place to have a mini-vacation. Continuing the trend of treating your guests well, you will have a chance to give them the trip of a lifetime while you relax as well. There are so many opportunities to have fun, sit on the beach, and take part in adventures that it will always end up holding a special place in your wedding guest’s hearts.
Renaissance Curacao Weddings
The Renaissance Curacao is a fantastic resort and a casino that is perfect for those younger couples and those young at heart. There is a certain amount of energy here that really captures the island. You will experience entertainment and history as you never have before.
Of course, the Renaissance Curacao is the perfect place for Curacao weddings because there is a great mixture of island style and European charm. This means that you get everything you want out of the resort. Your guests will have plenty of time and opportunity to explore the island.

At the Renaissance Curacao, you can have your wedding above the waters, in the ballroom, on the atrium, near the fountain plaza, at Ocean Front Park, on Eternity Beach, or in the shadows of Rif Fort, which is a truly magical location.
This is a popular Curacao wedding choice for those who want to plan all the details of their weddings but aren’t quite sure what they want – as much of what you get here is a-la-carte and the menus offer everything you could dream of. Also, every wedding has a planner to help you.
