Beach wedding location

Recommended Posts


Currently trying to select a location and could use some help. If we chose Belize we would be coming in by cruise ship. Here is what we are looking for:


- NOT touristy

- Quiet, small beach ceremony

- A fun place to have a lunch reception, not formal. Something like this:

la cueva del chango

- Lush foliage for pictures


Any places near the port in Belize come to mind? Thanks, Carla :)

My suggestion would be to be married on Ambergris Caye. Ambergris is touristy - but you can go to a more isolated location.


Victoria House is my favorite place for a beachfront ceremony in Belize. They have lush, tropical grounds. It is very quiet and private. Even if they are booked at full capacity - the guests would be unobtrusive. Victoria House is on the south end of the island, so once you are actually on the island you can get there by taxi.


But...another great place is Mata Chica. Their grounds are quite as lush - BUT - they have a beautiful beachfront. And their interiors remind me a lot of the website that you provided. Mata Chica is on the north end of the island so once you are on the island you need to take a boat to get there.


Feel free to email if you have any questions about the island or Belize! I would be happy to answer them.

I just got back from my weddingmoon in Belize and we totally loved it.


We went to Almond Beach / Jaguar Reef and they were wonderful!


It was not crowded, the rooms, service, food, daily adventures, value for your money, and wedding ceremony was absolutely wonderful.


If anyone is interested in seeing my pictures (wedding photographer was included in the ceremony) please email me at cherri702@yahoo.com.


I'd be happy to relay my experience with you.

We've photographed weddings with couples from cruise ships a number of times on Ambergris Caye.  Because organising everything for timing can be quite tricky, we do recommend using a planner.  They can liaise with resorts and restaurants to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to make sure you have the very best experience.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
