Koningsdag, also known as “King’s Day” is not your average holiday. Not that there’s anything remotely average about the colorful Dutch island of Curaçao.
For those new to the culture of Curaçao, King’s Day is not simply just a day to honor the King of the Netherlands birthday, oh no, it’s a day to swim in a sea of orange, find the best bargain on anything and everything, and party your heart out.
Imagine, a blissfully isolated island, piña colada in your hand, and nothing on the agenda except relaxing under the sun, and listening to waves roll in. Sound like paradise?
It might for some, and for others that might sound boring. The point is, everyone’s ideal vacation is different, and trying to find a destination that fits the needs of all, can be challenging.

Whatever your reason for desiring a destination wedding – it’s a fabulous idea. Destination weddings are becoming increasingly more popular as the cost of travel is decreasing, accessibility of exotic regions is improving, and folks are wanting to get away from the hum drum of normal life.
