Weddings in Belize remain a Caribbean hot spot to tie the knot in a fabulous tropical setting.

How To Get Married On Ambergris Caye

1. Contact the Belize Registry Department to ensure the proper person is available to prepare your marriage license.

2. Both bride and groom must arrive in Belize three days before the ceremony.

3. Obtain the marriage license forms from The Registry, Supreme Court Building or the Belize General Attorney Office.

4. Show photo proof of identification and proof of marital status, such as divorced or widowed.

5. Pay a $100 marriage license fee.

6. Guests who are planning to elope, and therefore will not have any guests of their own, must pay $5 each for two hired witnesses for the ceremony.

7. Bride and groom will provide a donation to the local Belize clergy scheduled to perform the marriage ceremony.

8. Ask your tour operator or hotel concierge service to make the marriage ceremony into a packaged deal. Belize weddings often include a honeymoon suite, ceremony, intimate reception, and all resort facilities for a fantastic built-in honeymoon.

9. Request that a copy of your marriage licensed be faxed to you.

10. Couples who wish to marry on site among the Mayan ruins must contact the Archaeological Reserve office one week in advance of the ceremony. Mayan ruins marriages have become quite popular and permission to marry at the monuments will almost certainly be granted. However, guests must follow the proper procedure and make an advanced reservation to do so.
