Planning a Wedding in Beautiful Belize

By Sofia Angeli, Guest Blogger

In the same way that some couples look for unique engagement rings, some lovebirds look for extraordinary settings when they say their vows. Those who want more than a downtown hotel for their reception usually opt for a destination wedding. Belize is a rapidly growing destination wedding location. Belize Destination Wedding

The Magic of Belize Belize Beach Wedding at Chabil Mar, Placencia, Belize

Celebrating your wedding in Belize means you will be able to say your vows in the great outdoors, with the azure sea as background. It means you can hold your reception in a garden, on the beach, or around a swimming pool, with just the tropical gardens surrounding you and palm trees for your canopy. And, at Chabil Mar, you can even reserve the entire resort for your family and friends.

Wedding ceremonies in Belize can be as exceptional as the most unique engagement rings because this is a place where you can really let your imagination run loose. A honeymoon in Belize means collecting memories you would not be able to create elsewhere. You can swim and snorkel, explore ancient Mayan ruins, trek through a rainforest, try zip-lining, lounge on a private island and sunbathe. This is where you can indulge the mood of the moment and concentrate on enjoying every minute of this special time in your married life.

The Convenience of a Belize Wedding

A lot of people shy away from getting married in another country because of the complicated arrangements and potential problems this may entail. For one thing, because of the presence of the British in Belizean history, Belize is an English-speaking country. You won’t  be needing a translation book while you are there. If you are coming from the United States, you will find that Belize is not too far away.  Belize is accessible from all regions of the United States. It is only two hours away from Dallas and Houston or Miami and Atlanta, and less than six hours away from Los Angeles.

Getting married in Belize is a safe proposition. A marriage in this country is considered legal anywhere in the world. At Chabil Mar you have a full time Belize, born and raised, wedding planner to arrange and schedule every step of the way. Wine Display Ian_Jennifer_Belize_Wedding_Chabil_Mar_Placencia

Getting Started

If you have picked Belize as the site of your nuptials, you can start your preparations by making sure you have a passport that will be valid six months after your proposed stay in the country. You will need to be in Belize at least three days before filing a petition for a license to marry. If this is not possible, you can apply for a special license. The process for this has been made simple by the Belizean government, and Chabil Mar’s wedding planner will help facilitate things for you.

Belize not only offers couples unforgettable settings for weddings. This exotic place gives lovers a glimpse of paradise and adventure to make perfect the beginning of their life together. Bridesmaids at Belize Resort Destination Wedding
