Wow, what a great time We had! We arrived around 6pm to Casa Tortuga on the 8th. Maria had made us a fabulous dinner and tropical drinks then we headed straight into town on our golf cart (those are so fun). That is when I ran into Scrivic aka Tammy! We walked into Jambel and there was a group of people and girls doing shots at the bar, That is when I saw tammy, having a great time I might add. She talked me into doing some kind of shot with her but she didn't tell me what it was. I sucked it down like any good girl would do, yuck is all I can say! I still am not sure what she had me drink but it was all brown and I think they said it was made from seaweed! I'll get you sometime tammy! Any way a couple more drinks and alittle dancing and we were ready for bed.
Next day was kinda just mellow, checked out the local sights and caught some sun, ate alot! Maria fed us 3 meals a day! About 8:30pm we went down to Fido's, Barefoot skinny was playing and we had a blast, lot's of people were there and we did some dancing. We then went to the Barefoot Iguana where I was told as we entered it was chipendale dancers night. Well, I must say I was intrigued. Then I saw the dancers, please! These were are not chippendale dancers! I had a great laugh!
Next day we had more family come in so it was very busy! Jason went on a snorkle adventure and me and some family laid in the sun reading. I realize i should have gone to snorkle but I was just enjoying just not working! That night we went again to Fido's
then back to the Iguana for mud wrestling, we where to early so we went to the Hideaway where there was a marine reunion. My friend who was very drunk made friend quickly, I had to drag her out of the bar! This was also the night we made friends with a dog we called El Protector. He's a brown dog with a big white area around his neck. He is know around the island because he likes to chase people on bikes! He followed us for 3 days, Great dog!
We went to Altun Ha and Maruba on sunday, It was a great trip and a great massage! Our guide was a guy named Carlos who does alot of tour from Casa Tortuga. I learned alot and was really glad i went. Didn't do alot of drinking that night, wedding was in 24 hours!
Wedding Day! 8:00am Started crying and didn't stop till after the ceremony! It was very beautiful, sun in the background, friends and family everywhere. I wouldn't have had it happen any other way! Why pay so much for a hotel reception when you can do what I did, sit on the beach, walk in the sand and be just as happy! Everyone should do this!
Spent one more day on the island just doing my own thing, Jason went fishing, I know it sound boring but I really just needed a break, you know no work. we left the island to go to San Ignacio on Wed. That was a new adventure and the best part of the whole trip! I guess that should go under other parts of belize! I do just want to say a couple of thank you's. One to Jennifer for putting up with my pain in the ass friends! It was great to meet you and I wish you all the luck in the world! I also want to say Hi to Wendy, It was nice to meet you! I'm glad you intoduced your self and jason thought you were very sweet also. The Boys had a great time a Ruby's! See you next time. Thanks to all of you on this board that helped me plan my trip and my wedding, If I wouldn't have found you all I think I would have been very lost. I will still keep an eye on this board, we do plan on visiting again to belize. I do recomend Casa Tortuga to anyone, Maria was sooo wonderful!!!

Great report. Loved the comment about the dog. We had a dog that followed us for about a week. Also very protective, but a great guy all around. As my friend said, he just needed a little understanding (and food!)

Hello Ybon. Sounds like you had a wonderful wedding. That's what we want too, but I'm getting really stressed out. Are getting married on Ambergris Caye in March (I've posted a new topic) and was wondering who did your planning? Any comments would really be appreciated, because we want something simple, on the beach, and then we'll go and take our party of 20 to a restaurant afterwards. Thanks so much.

Don't you wonder why in the world anyone would want a big formal wedding??? I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself and that everything went well. Post pictures!!!
JacksonandShauna:
I used Iraida as well. She was wonderful! her website is BelizeWeddings.com
DON'T stress! I promise, it's such a piece of cake. You can take care of just about everything once you get to the island in about an hour. Relax and enjoy your engagment knowing you don't have to meet with caterers and stuffy snotty wedding planners!!

I have a picture of the stuff we drank for a shot! It looks like seaweed, barbwire and some string. Surprisingly enough, when Fitz poured it, the liquid was as clear as the day is long. Ybon, I am going to have to send you those pictures! They are hilarious! I have the before shot pictures, during shot pictures and after shot pictures! They are just great! And in all of the pictures you can see Jason all smiling away!
