    When I first got engaged in December I thought 100% I wanted to have my wedding in Belize, but was so unsure of the resorts and places there, b/c it is so underdeveloped. Mostly my concern was - it might not go smoothly. I would love to here from people who have wed there or are planning to wed there and how their process went or has gone thus far. What are the names of the places that you would highly recommend. I welcome anyone who has comments. Thank you!
    Cheers: Elizabeth

      I am getting married at the Victoria House in November. I have been there many times before and can 100% rely on the staff to provide an elegant bur relaxed wedding for us and our 80 guests. They also do smaller weddings.

        I appreciate your feedback, I'm very interested in what you wedding plans are? What sort of plans do you have for you ceremony and reception? and will you be having a band, etc? Just wanted to see if there were options as far as vendors are in Belize and in the area of Ambergris.

        Congratulations and I look forward to hearing from you!
        Cheers: Elizabeth

          I just got back from my honeymoon at Matachica Resort on Ambergris Caye. It is so beautiful and relaxing there! I highly recommend this resort.

            When do you plan your wedding? Victoria House is very beautiful.... look at Portofino Resort, Xanadu Resort... if you would like to have a wedding coordinator visit...Belize Wedding Destination, Ambergris Caye - www.idoinbelize.com who can arrange everything for you...or email them at info@idoinbelize.com

              I just got back from my weddingmoon in Belize and I find it odd that only a few places get mentioned - like the Victoria house.

              We stayed further South in Hopkins, Belize at Almond Beach / Jaguar Reef and it was breathtakingly beautiful. While we were there we saw them handle a large wedding and they did a beautiful job of our tiny wedding with just the two of us. Everyone there is able to meet your every need.

              Yes, I'm raving about the place because I had a fantastic experience with the resort & the people there. The owner is a very friendly person too. I just loved it there!

              You get to use both resorts since they are sister properties. Check it out; it's a very good deal and you get a lot for your money.

              Any questions or if you want to see my pictures; cherri702@yahoo.com

                I dont think that using the word underdevelop is correctly used for Belize. Despite the fact the Belize is underpopulated, third world country, Belize offeres the best services you can imagine. If it cannot be found in Belize, they can import it. Ambergris Caye for example, is famous for destination weddings - You can look at Victoria House, Mata Chica, Ramons Village, Portofino Resort - Hundreds of Weddings and certainly have no complains.
                Belize is a tropical country and thus offers tropical weddings. Having the ocean as a back drop, fresh seafood for your reception, Caribbean Music, what else can you ask for? People of Belize are very friendly, and make you feel at home.

                You can also use wedding coordinators - Like Enrique and Carlos(Belize Wedding Destination, Ambergris Caye - www.idoinbelize.com) who are probably the best in town. They are hired also by Victoria House for flowers and hair and make up - Carlos is a Make Up Artist and Hair Dresser.... Perfect combination. They are very flexible and try to make everything possible.

                they can be reached by email at info@idoinbelize.com or tel: 011-501-226-2356.

                Thanks and hopefully, this information becomes useful to anyone.

                  We are getting married in April 2010 at the Sunbreeze Hotel (right across from the airport). We visited in May and met with the hotel manager who will be helping us arrange everything. Everyone at the hotel was so friendly - we cannot wait to go back (hopefully one more time before the big day!)!!

                    Can anybody recommend an all inclusive in Belize or Ambergris Caye?

                      When I was looking for places to get married in Belize (and trust me I did a massive amount of research), I found that as far as all inclusive and the best ratings go, Victoria House was the pick.

                      Even though I decided not to get married in Belize, when visiting there, I will def. plan a few nights stay at Victoria House!! They seem very consistent as far as food, service, etc.

                      Good luck and Congratulations!!
                      Cheers: Elizabeth
