Not everyone clamors to say ‘I do’ in front of a crowd. For some, the ideal wedding is a private affair between two people best appreciated in a space that inspires magical thinking. For those seeking to get away and elope, The Belize Collection offers an ideal opportunity amid our wedding offerings—the elopement package.
With the elopement package, you’ll have all the details of your wedding settled without the stress of months of planning or interlopers intervening. Once you’ve booked the elopement package from our website, a wedding coordinator will be assigned to work with you and your fiancé to ensure that the ceremony meets your aesthetic and ceremonial interests from the marriage license to the flower bouquet before you even leave for Belize.
The Belize Collection also has a full suite of vendors at the ready to help match your tastes and style for everything from the arch to the location to the dinner setup for you and your beloved. The wedding coordinator can manage as much of the planning as you like, leaving you plenty of time to figure out what you’d like to do while in the country.
After you arrive in Belize via a short flight, you’re a one-hour and thirty minute drive away from enjoying the seclusion and luxury at The Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant. Hand in hand, you arrive at The Rainforest Lodge where you’re checked into a room that you may consider never leaving for your stay.
While you have a range of locations to choose from, you’ve already settled on a ceremony atop the cliff overlooking the Maya Mountains, a perfect backdrop for wedding photos.
The elopement package includes everything you need to make a wedding ceremony and private reception for you and your new marriage partner. You’ll receive a wedding officiant, a customized arch and path, a bouquet, and a matching boutonnière.
Along with the ceremony, an elopement in Belize is also ideal due to the ease of acquiring a recognized official marriage license. All you’ll need to bring is proof of citizenship (passport), original birth certificate, and if applicable: original divorce decree or death certificate. The only other requirement is that you need to be in Belize 3 days before applying for the marriage license, giving you plenty of time to plan and relish more time in tropical splendor.
Not interested in a legal marriage? No problem, The Rainforest Lodge at Sleeping Giant will gladly coordinate a commitment ceremony of your choosing.
While you wait for the wedding day, you and your beloved make time for play during the day, exploring the lodge’s grounds by foot, bike, or horse-drawn carriage, and also rejuvenating via massages and laps in the pool. Meanwhile, every evening you dine at the Grove House or Don Tonito’s, trying a full range of menu options that’ll leave you swooning with pleasure as you countdown to the fateful day. All the while, you’ll reaffirm why you’ve chosen this person to commit to—their sense of fun, the safety you feel with them, and their grounding presence.
Then on the wedding day, your wedding coordinator will have booked a make-up artist and hair stylist, who will get you ready in your suite to give you a look that lives up to the day.
Meanwhile, your wedding photographer, also booked by The Belize Collection, takes pre-ceremony photos that’ll live on in your home spaces and surprise social media announcements, conveying the enchantment of the day only the jungles of Belize can infuse.
From there, you’re ready to meet your spouse atop the cliff for a ceremony you’ll relish for a lifetime. With the sun kissing your skin, and the fresh air as your only witness, you’ll say ‘I do’ in a place that’ll embed the memory in you forever. Afterward, you’ll have a cake and bottle of champagne to enjoy, included in your package, as you look forward to the rest of your lives together.
Once the ceremony is through and you’re all packed up again, you’ll be driven 45 minutes away to The Lodge at Jaguar Reef for a beachside honeymoon. Your suite comes with a king-sized bed, a plunge pool, and immaculate views of the sea for you to gaze in and imagine your brilliant futures together.
Though the wedding will be over, your commitment to each other only starts the celebration and you’ll find plenty to do together from exploring the barrier reef to enjoying tropical cocktails at the Big Dock Bar. Whatever’s next, you’ll leave Belize secure in the knowledge that your commitment is one of abundance, trust, and peace.
