A wedding should be a once in a lifetime event. After all, a wedding signifies you pledging your eternal love to another person, and that’s an event remembering forever. And while destination weddings have become increasingly popular, that also means that there many of the most popular destinations have become exceedingly rote. Mexico, the Bahamas, and Hawaii dominate social media feeds of happy couples, Belize deserves to be on your radar.
The country of Belize is known for both the gregariousness and hospitality of its English speaking residents and for the untapped beauty of its landscapes. Beaches, jungles, and ancient Maya cities are all within reach in Belize, and the low population density ensures that the bride, the groom, and their wedding party can have a level of privacy that would be hard to find in more crowded wedding destinations. Of particularly worthy note is the Placencia Village. Located on the southern Placencia Peninsula, the village is a sedate settlement, offering plenty of tourist amenities despite still holding the trappings of a humble fishing village. Being only a quarter of a mile wide at its longest points, the peninsula is a picturesque stretch of land dominated by sandy beaches and easy to navigate. All these factors combine to make it an ideal spot for a wedding.
Then there’s Chabil Mar. Our resort accommodates travelers from all walks of life, but it’s particularly well suited for weddings. Chabil Mar is conscientious about pampering couples to an exceeding degree. Wedding packages include a romantic candlelit dinner for two, an intimate reception on the beach, and a luxurious honeymoon suite. Couples can indulge in massages, champagne, and on-site amenities like fine dining, an expansive pool, and a lush garden.
There are plenty of practical reasons for getting married in Belize. The whole process is a simple affair. Couples merely need to have been in the country for three days to apply for a marriage license, and the approval process simply takes a day. The license cost is just $100. But if you have any questions, the helpful staff at Chabil Mar can help expedite the process for you.
That gets to the heart of what makes Belize and Chabil Mar such an ideal choice for a destination wedding: convenience. Once you decide to stage your wedding on Placencia, you can put aside many of the traditional stresses of planning a destination wedding and instead focus on enjoying yourselves.
