We have good news, marriage ceremonies in Belize are internationally recognized so your ceremony can be more than just symbolic. Your Signature Wedding planner will handle all of the requirements on your behalf, most of which will be done before you get here! Don’t worry, we register the marriage so you can spend your holiday on the beach and not at a courthouse.
