Wedding in February, Help!

Wedding in February, Help! - 11/12/02 03:18 PM

My fiancÚ and I are getting married on Ambergris Caye in February but can't seem to find a place that can offer us what we are looking for. We want something simple for a small group, on the beach, an official to perform the wedding, a cake, a small bridal bouquet, some champagne. Everyone we write to wants to give us more than we are looking for including the papers although we have been clear that we will have the license when we arrive. We were hoping to get a package at a hotel to do this but haven't had much luck.

Do any of you know if it is possible to put a wedding together without the help of a hotel? Are the beaches public, can we marry anywhere? We've been told that there is a J.P. on the island but all the packages that we have seen require round trip flights, hotel accommodations, etc. Do any of you know the name/contact information of the J.P.?

Advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Hey guys,
Claudio at Southwind, can help you all, you can contact him at [email protected]
Also check with Kim at the Holiday Hotel, I think they can help you with your wedding, they are in the middle of town and are right on the beach.

Hope this helps,

Greetings Vicki,

We've written to you twice and haven't had any response. Perhaps we are miscommunicating?

The wedding cake costs $50US. The bridal bouquet
is $25US. The wedding ceremony costs $100US. The champgne costs $25US but you can get it and bring it cheaper with you from the U.S. The total would then be $200US with you getting the license on your own.

Congratulations!!! My fiance and I will be getting married in 2004 in belize. We want to start booking and figuring out a date and what hotel very soon so we can take care of the kinks by March. Does anyone have an idea of how much the liscence costs. I like those prices. We're looking for something inexpensive and small. Again good luck on your search!!

Congratulations. The wedding license fee is $100 US and can be picked up on Belmopan or Belize City. One of you has to be in country 3 full days before you can apply for your license. Check out this website: //ambergriscaye.com/pages/town/marriage.html Good luck! :p

You cannot bring your own marriage license to Belize. A Justice of the Peace cannot conduct your marriage ceremony on Ambergris Caye, which is why the wedding co-ordinators post costs for transportation for the minister who performs the ceremony. Beaches are public, which means you cannot ban stray tourists, children, etc. from your "special moment" ........ do yourself a favor and get a pro to help you. You will be glad you did.
