What comes to mind when you read the words “Adventure wedding”? A khaki wedding gown? Mosquito netting for a veil or picking your own floral bouquet leaves from a tree you climb? Not exactly. But there really is such a thing as an adventure wedding. Belize is fast becoming the epicenter of off-the-beaten-trail affairs and couples are delighted with the choices they are given:
-The bride can still wear an opulent gown and the groom his choice of formal duds, but the place you’ll don these outfits is more likely to be an ancient Maya ruin, at the foot of a majestic waterfall or inside a cave if that’s your desire.
-If friends and family eager to watch you exchange vows at your destination wedding are like-minded, they can show up in beachwear if they like. Aventure weddings have no dress codes and the fashion police won’t show up, either.
-Pick a jungle lodge that is the epitome of exotic festivities like Ian Anderson’s Cave’s Branch where the extraordinary takes place every day for couples in love. The Elope With Me Rainforest Wedding Package is exactly what Cupid ordered. Choose from wild and wonderful locations for your festivities and whether you choose that cave or prefer the lodge’s lush tropical gardens, you’ll be thrilled.
-It’s no adventure to spend countless hours on details. Turn your affair over to Cave’s Branch wedding planners and the hard work is done. You wouldn’t be the first couple to give your planner a bottle of bubbly after helping you apply for a marriage license, hire an officiate and sort out your flowers, champagne or wine and wedding cake.
-Your grand adventure would be incomplete without the complementary hair and makeup session for the bride and photographer, all of which are included in the package. Left your home without witnesses? No sweat. The lodge can provide them.
