With a history that includes the Arawaks, the Spanish, the British, and even the Dutch, Curacao is a one-of-a-kind melting pot of cultures.

Your big day will be nothing less than exceptional, thanks to Dreams Curacao. Your special day will be as distinctive as Curacao, regardless of whether you say “I do” in a beachside gazebo wedding venue or close to a Dutch colonial fort ceremony space!

And after your special day, don your snorkeling gear to explore the vast marine life of the island while standing close to one of the Caribbean’s most well-liked diving destinations.

Enjoy authentic Creole cuisine and more with your Dreams Curacao wedding guests at any of the resort’s seven restaurants.

Although Curacao doesn’t currently legally recognize gay marriage, Dreams Curacao offers symbolic ceremonies for gay couples seeking to tie the knot on the vibrant Caribbean island of Curacao!
