Belize | Latin America

You can't get more laid-back than a destination wedding in Belize... this country has had a peaceful history, and facing as it does the Caribbean Sea, it seems to have more in common with the islands than Latin America. Easily accessible from the U.S., Belize, a subtropical getaway for smart & sophisticated travelers, has also become a very tempting choice for an exotic wedding destination.

With its glorious rainforests and mountains teeming with incredible wildlife, its endless miles of magnificent beaches protected by coral reefs and 200 caves on the Caribbean coastline, wedding planners will find all they desire in Belize. Enjoy waterfalls, caves, granite riverbeds, plus rainforest medicine trails and ancient Mayan cities - with splendid ruins that make beautiful backdrops for a wedding photo album that will be an absolute treasure for years to come.

Belize has a wide variety of religious denominations including: Roman Catholic, Anglican, Episcopalian, Methodist, Faith Assembly of God, Jehovah's Witness, Baptist, Mormon, Mennonite, and Hindu. Check with your hotel for times and places of services.

If you plan to get married at an Archaeological Reserve, (Maya Ruins, sites), please fax a letter requesting permission one week before the ceremony. Letters should be faxed to the Commissioner of Archaeology, at (501) 822-3345. Please include the date and time of ceremony; names of bride and groom; priest or Justice of the Peace; and site of ceremony.

Belize | Tipping Customs

Tips are not expected in Belize and rarely added to the bill however, it is recommended to leave a 10-15% tip at restaurants. Hotels do tend to add the tip or service charge onto the bill so there is not need to tip them. It's not customary to tip taxi drivers.

Belize | Planning Notes

Civil Ceremonies:

Civil ceremonies are required and only take place at the General Registry Office in Belize City in the evening Monday through Friday. See details below. You can take care of the legal marriage in the office and then plan on a blessing or another non-denominational wedding anywhere else in the country the following day if you please. This could be performed by anyone you wish.
