There are so many places to have a perfect destination wedding in Belize and Placencia is one of those places. A peninsula towards the south of Belize, it is known for it’s wide sandy beaches, which are perfect for a barefoot beach wedding.
So many brides dream of walking barefoot, down a sandy aisle, lined with palm trees with a handsome escort.
Part of that dream is attending to every detail, to make sure that this wedding in paradise will be perfect.
Having a fabulous and beautiful bevy of bridesmaids is an important part of that dream.
A handsome bunch of chaps doesn’t hurt either.
When it all comes together under the warm Caribbean sun, with the waves lapping gently in the background, it is a dream come true.
A bride might start to wonder if it can get any better.
For the guests, there is only one way for it to get better and that means that there may just be a party around the corner.
The girls are ready to get started.
So, the guests freshen up and get ready for their luxury limousine to transport them to the event.
Our romantic couple catch a little quiet time together. After all, they planned the party and they know what’s ahead!
Because the wedding party is on a lovely part of the peninsula known as Maya Beach, the couple take in the sights of Placencia Village while waiting for their school bus. Did we just say school ‘bus’? We meant limousine.
We’ve decided not to use metaphors of reflections, views to the future or the groom being unable to take his eye off of his beautiful bride because it’s time for everyone to climb aboard.
Yes, it is a school bus, but here in the paradise of Belize, we like to keep things simple and recycle. One man’s old school bus is a bride and grooms limousine.
First, there was the toss of the bouquet. These bridesmaids didn’t hold back.
And the winner is!!!!! We hope she knows that if you catch a bouquet in Belize, you have to come back to Belize to get married. It’s a tradition. OK, maybe a tradition that we’ve made up, but we think it’s a good one.
Not only does Belize have a very unique style of limousine transport, but our cake cutting implements are extremely functional, yet dramatic.
Did we happen mention that getting married in Belize may involve assisting with the traditional emptying of an ‘elephant foot’, which is a rather large bottle of local rum……
…and hats. Everyone in Belize wears hats, just like these.
So remember the 5 rules for your perfect destination wedding as written by Conch Creative.
1. Have a dream.
2. Come to Belize and make that dream come true
3. Whoever catches the bouquet has to come back to Belize to get married.
4. Cakes should be cut with machetes while in Belize.
5. Your celebration should be full of love, fun, rum and ….um….hats!
We wish this couple all the very best for the future.
This beautiful wedding in Placencia, Belize was organised by Lee Nyhus.
