1st-- Belize is AMAzING! My dad and his wife married on Ambergris Caye two Novembers ago, and it was PHENOMENAL!
The thing I would recommend most is taking advantage of Jaguar Ridge's tours. They do a Cave touring trip that is unforgettable, and unlike anything you can do in other countries.
As for the weather, Central America has similar patters to Mexico, so you're going to experience the end of their "warm season" and the beginning of HOT and rainy.
You also HAVE to go to the "Crazy Canuck" in San Pedro. Such a fun party spot for tourists and locals alike. Everyone is very, very friendly and the beer is sooooooo cheap! lol
If you have any specific questions about weddings, customs, legalities, etc. Let me know and I can get you in touch with my stepmom-- who became a genuis with the specifics.
Oh, and also... I think its illegal NOT to go scuba diving or snorkeling, as Belize as the second largest and most beautiful barrier reef next to Australia. I think that renting a catamaran for the day, or something like that would be a great idea!

Also, I will be on my honeymoon in Belize (Ambergris Caye) the week you are getting married! My FI and I will be there May 4th-11th.
We don't plan to do much...mostly relaxation, but, will definitely check out San Pedro and do some snorkeling. I really want to go to the "Blue Hole", which I heard is amazing for diving and snorkeling.
If I hear of more, I can let you know!

As for the planning process, things have been somewhat difficult. Things are more expensive that I anticipated, which is always a bummer. The staff at Cayo Espanto have not been super helpful, but we do have a really great wedding planner and that makes all the difference!
I hope that answers all your questions!

I'm getting married on Ambergris Caye May 22nd. We selected Las Terrazas which is a new condo property on the north side of the island. I've only visited Belize once, but absolutely fell in love with it. It's a very special place - very rustic, charming and adventurous. Planning is not the easiest as it's not as built up as some other destinations, but I haven't minded that so much as we want something more laid back. We'll have about 50 guests - mostly family and close friends, so it should be a relaxing and fun event. Let me know if you have any other questions about Belize. So looking forward to being there in two months!
