Simon's comment on getting a wedding planner is spot-on. The stress is a killer and why have an event and be tired and miserable.
We just had a wonderful wedding at Caye Villas. The pool deck was a perfect dance floor. You would need to reserve all the villas for yourself and guests and ask permission from the Homeowner's Association to do an event there.
Belize Weddings did a beautiful job of putting up tents and catering the event.
Rojo is an excellent venue as well - plenty of space for everything.
Portofino is really beautiful and would be a nice choice.
Victoria House is also popular venue for weddings.
If you want just a simple beach celebration maybe ask to rent the Lion's Park and cater it?
For a smaller wedding, Aji could be a really magical space.
El Pescador and Captain Morgan's have also hosted some very lovely beach weddings.
Capricorn has a beach, a bar and a restaurant - as well as ample space for dancing - it also has roofs and all-weather curtains in case of rain.
The number of people you have as guests the major determining factor in selecting a location - if you are going to use a hotel or restaurant it's really best to be able to book all the rooms or reserve the whole restaurant - otherwise it's really not just your party.
Our experience suggests that the first thing you do is make a budget, and design the event(s) around that budget. Knowing a target budget will narrow down the location search.
The wedding planner will be able to advise and suggest and help you see both benefits and possible drawbacks of a particular location.
