Okay, so I've finally decided on having my wedding at Xanadu... thanks to all the info from all of you on this forum!!! I have never been to Ambergris Caye, thus, I have not tried any of their food. I am trying to plan a menu for the reception at Xanadu. Any suggestions on caterers or "must include" foods? I would like to include a little authentic Belizean food, but not too different... I have a sensitive stomache! Also, I have no idea what a competitive price would be per person for a nice meal, drinks not included. Anyone have any ideas on a price that I should ask for? I don't want to be taken advantage of just because I'm having a wedding. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

I've heard Caliente does a great job catering for weddings but are a little $$. Give Travel and Tours a call, they can help you plan everything.

$35usd-$40usd per plate would be a good price, including appetizers, main course, dessert and coffe, tea and soft drinks.

We really like Xanadu jesse. The staff is very friendly. I'm sure a wedding there would be very nice.

Belikin Bill - that's what I want too! I want a beach BBQ, fairly informal with some Belikins and some rum punch. I am considering BCs as well.

Charlene at BC's is offering just the type of service you're looking for. 501-226-3289.

Yes indeed. Charlene did my daughter's reception two years ago at Belizean Shores. bcbar@btl.net. There's no doubt she'll remember that. Tell her to quote what CHOOCHOO had. It was almost exactly what you are looking for, casual but very professional, no plastic. Should we expect anything else from "C"?

Jessie_30 - My experience is that SimonB gives the best (no bias) responses on this site - trust him and go with it. Sounds like CHOOCHOO had a great experience!!!!! I do know that if I was doing one that who I would get.
