Greetings from Fort Smith, Arkansas !

My fiance' and I are planning to be married in Belize the week of August 18, 2003.

We are interested in a wedding at a Mayan site. Is this possible? Also, we are interested in learning about other beautiful sites that would be appropriate for a very small, informal wedding.

We are booked to stay at the Seven Seas Resort in San Pedro Town, so accomodations are not the issue...just the site for a memorable wedding.

I sent an email to Belizeweddings.com but never received a response. Any suggestions out there?

Namaste,

Robin

I'm surprised you haven't heard back from Belize Weddings. When did you send the e-mail? Things on AC run a little slower ("island time") than they do in the States, so don't get discouraged. I bet Iraida will e-mail you soon.

I know it's possible to get married at a Mayan site, but not sure of any details. I was married on the beach on AC a year and a half ago. It was really wonderful. If you're staying on AC the whole time, you'll have to take a boat to the mainland to get married at a Mayan site. I know pretty much every tour opperator in AC has a trip to (can't remember the name!) a Mayan site not too far from AC, so you may want to check with some tour operators.
Good luck!

the photos I have seen of Altun Ha make it seem like a perfect setting, you are right Turnbun.

Easy to do, best location for you if you are based on San Pedro would be Altun Ha ruins. Just the two of you or you have other folks with you? You can take the boat from San Pedro or fly into into Belize City and drive up.

You'll need three things-

Permit from Dept of Archeology to have the wedding there. No cost and they allow minister, bride and groom in for free, guests pay regular entry fee of about Bz$5.00pp.

Marriage application, signed and notorized. Law says you have to be in Belize 3 days and can submit your application for marriage to the registry office in Belize City on the 4th business day (not a weekend or local holiday). You can have the paperwork returned and ready for your ceremony by the afternoon of the following business day. License costs US$100.00. My office can facilitate this for you at a cost of US$220.00, which includes the license, notary, etc. The people at the web site you listed below do the same, so you have choices.

Minister to conduct the ceremoney. Catholic priests can not conduct a ceremony unless you have special paperwork from your parish at home. We have other ministers here who do, sectarian or non sectarian. They usually charge about US$150.00.

Photographer? Music? Flowers? Celebratory parties or dinners? What else.

There are other good wedding planners, ask around and talk to them all.

Cool idea. Getting married anywhere in Belize is awesome. I remarried my wife At Coconuts in May of 2000. Oh what memories. It`ll be one of the coolist things you`ll ever do. Congradulations.

Have I got an idea for you!!!!!!!!! Former travel agents never die........, we just become counselors (present job). Check on the Winnie Estell. It is a lovely 1920's boat. Actually, it was once sunk and resurrected.

Do it the Belizean way, the girl comes up on another boat. I was invited to one a few years ago on the Winnie Estell, and it was really lovely! Roberto, the owner, will fix it up for you. He really does do a fine job with food and such.

Chloe and Klcman...it never hurts to give another opinion. It may be something they never have thought of that might be of interest to them.
