Island Beach Wedding or Mayan Ruin Wedding?
Mayan Ruin Wedding
Mayan Ruin Weddings are not for everyone, in fact, from the many that come to celebrate their Destination Wedding in Belize, the majority choose Ambergris Caye to Say “I Do”. Why? San Pedro Town, Ambergris Caye, commonly known as “La Isla Bonita” and Belize’s Premiere Tourist Destination, boasts many options to celebrate your Destination Wedding. You can choose from some of the top resorts in the Country, yes we have them, or you can choose a nice beach setting. You can also choose to seal your love in a Secluded Island Sand Bar, away from all the town buzz.
Island Beach Wedding
Last year, I received a call from one of the top wedding planners, I Do Belize Weddings, to document the first ever Island Sandbar Wedding. It was a great honor to be there and witness the beautiful couple exchanging vows with the sunset as their backdrop. In fact, if you are looking for a sunset wedding, this is the only way you can have one as all resorts are on the beach side where you can only have sunrise weddings. So there you have it. I thought of doing this post because I know Belize will be getting a lot of attention this year as 2012 is the year of the Maya and know many will want to try the Mayan Ruin Wedding but if you are not willing to go through all of the stress of climbing Mayan Temples under the scorching sun with your beautiful wedding dress, you can always decide on the Beautiful sceneries we have in Ambergris Caye. Also, you cannot have any décor on any of the Mayan Sites in Belize. Please note that I’m not trying to discourage Mayan Ruin Weddings, I simply want to show you your options. Here is the original blog post of the Intimate Sand Bar Wedding planned by I Do Belize Weddings. I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to please share on your favorite social network. Thanks
Intimate Island Sandbar Wedding January 6th, 2011 by I DO Belize Weddings
Close your eyes and just imagine… A long bar of sand formed in Caribbean Sea that peaks above the water just a few inches. A private sandbar surrounded by water so clear it magnifies the ocean floor and beautiful skies. The bride, groom, and their kids head to this magical location thirty minutes before their guests where they have their last moments together before they say I DO. The twenty guests board a boat and are asked to remove their shoes (bride and grooms request!) They take an exciting and mysterious boat ride. They have not been told where they are headed. “THERE THEY ARE!!” shouts the first guest who spots them. “Oh my goodness! It IS them. COOOOOOL. Look, look, over there on that sandbar! They’re waving!” The next person hollers with excitement. Everyone was very excited. The moment is perfect. The bride, groom, family and friends all together in a private location in the middle of the ocean. Just them. The bride is barefoot… In fact, everyone is barefoot! All of the guests are dressed in white! This was our first wedding ever where everyone was asked to wear white and let me tell you how beautiful they looked! The white attire in the middle of the ocean looked sharp and clean. The beautiful bride was in a bathing suit with black surong and her daughter also in a black bikini. It was truly awesome! Thanks Shelly and Jeff for allowing me to be part of your special day and week in Belize.
