I would not advise having the wedding at Ramon's. I considered this before we went down and Iraida didn't think it was a good idea. It is a very busy area so it wouldn't be very private. We got married at Victoria House and loved it. We were actually staying at Banana Beach, but Iraida arranged for us to be married at Victoria House. We stayed in one of their casitas for our wedding night. A little pricey, but it was so romantic and it was only for one night.

Hey, I just saw your post, congratulations!
We stayed at and got married on Cayo Espanto. It was beautiful and perfect. We didn't bring anyone so it was just the two of us, one of the employees gave me away.

Iraida is great. And I don't know how much cheaper you can get, to be honest. Take the fact that it is $500 for licensing & minister, pix for about $200, flowers about $75.

Not many brides get married for under $1,000.

Iraida takes care of it all. I didn't make any decisions, I decided to relax (the main ingredient for a perfect AC wedding) and let Iraida take care of it. It was better than I could have imagined it.
I was led through palm trees to my husband, the breeze was blowing my veil around, we could hear the water lapping at our feet. The flowers were gorgeous! It was great.
Have fun!

Thanks, BillandJeanne. Congrats to you, too. That sounds like the type of ceremony that we want.

I'm going to email you, Bromista. Those prices look great, and the beach barbeque is a good idea, too. I've emailed the Blue Tang for some info. Are you as excited as we are? What made you choose Belize?

Hi, Nicki. Iraida did send me some info on the Victoria House, but when I asked if there was anywhere that we could spend our wedding night, I'm sure that she told me that the resorts didn't book one night only (maybe that was just Ramon's, I'll talk to her again about it if we decide to go with her). We want to spend it somewhere other than where we have booked for the week, but I got the impression that most places don't do less than 3 night bookings, so we thought we'd try to find a nice cabana or something for our wedding night when we get there if there's something available. Anyhow, thanks for letting me know that it can be done (so there is still hope).

If you are going to book the Blue Tang, you need to get the third floor front room on the south side. Trust me.


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

We just got married on Nov. 14th in Belize and had an AMAZING time. I'm planning on posting a trip report soon (just got back to my computer today and am still on Island time!). But I would HIGHLY recommend SUNDIVER BEACH RESORT. They were amazing and the wedding was everything I dreamed of.

Their website, http://www.sundiverbeachresort.com, has some packages that look pretty great. These were posted after our plans were made but Tazmara and Kathryn put together a great package for all of us. DEFINITELY check them out. The resort is out of town but they take the boat in 3 times a day for free which makes it easy to go back and forth.

I'm not sure what kind of wedding you are looking for but if you want it away from town (I saw the Blue Tang when I was there and it is right in town and doesn't have much of a beach in front - just a warning) and a nice beach, excellent service and beautiful accomodations - try out Sundiver. (I kinda sound like one of those "TV Infomercials" here!!!)... Trust me - you'll love it!...

Thanks, BelizeWedding. Congratulations! SunDiver looks like a really nice place, too, and maybe we'll decide on one of the 5 night packages. Your pics turned out great, too. Looks windy on the island, is it?

My fiance works overseas, so when he gets back in a week or so, we'll have alot to look at now that I have so many more ideas to think about.

Thanks to all!

It wasn't windy at all...There are only 2 pictures of our wedding on there (the 2 of us and then my wedding party). The picture below isn't of our wedding. I can see what you mean - it does look windy for that wedding. We had REALLY great weather the whole time we were there (3 weeks) and the wedding day turned out to be the best weather yet (Lucky - I know!!!). However, the last few days was pretty windy. Someone told me that a few days before the full moon it gets windy there and that's when we noticed it was windy - Don't know if its true but you might want to plan around the moon!!! (I'm no expert though!)...
We had a little bit of wind (barely noticable) but enough to keep the sandflies away!!!

Good Luck!!!
