Belize Weddings|Beautiful Beachfront Weddings in Belize
If your absolutely perfect wedding includes tropical scenes, turquoise waters, beautiful white sand beaches, your own secluded cabana (but with unbelievable sea views) on a luxurious private island then you have just described Yok Ha Belize Island Resort.
If you said under your breath, “Oh, and it must not cost a king’s ransom. Then afterwards, we want to go kayaking, fishing, scuba-diving along the second biggest barrier reef in the world, go bird-watching, see jaguars – and visit ancient Maya heritage sites.” Then Yok Ha is definitely the place for you – and your guests.
Yok Ha Island Beach Resort is three acres of unbelievable and unsurpassed pleasure on Waterfoot Caye, just off southern coast of Belize, eight miles east of Dangriga. A short flight from the USA takes you to Belize City, where we will courier you to your perfect wedding location.
Our professional staff will help you arrange, and then handle, everything. If it is just the two of you we will provide, not just a minister or priest, a senior Justice of the Peace but two witnesses, as well. If you come with family and friends, our professional staff will look after their every need.
We can also make your Belize honeymoon perfect. Relax in your hammock, enjoy dinner served on your own private veranda in one of our five, luxury cabanas. Enjoy a perfect martini in our resort bar while you plan your days with us. Our professional guides will take you on full or half-day tours.
Enjoy sailing, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving in the perfect waters of the Caribbean Sea. Take trips into the jungle to see the exotic wildlife. Explore the many Mayan ruins. Learn about our unique Garifuna culture. It is all waiting for you, here in Yok Ha.

“When my fiancee gave me the task of organizing our wedding, I knew I wanted something truly spectacular, but I was worried about the price. After doing some research on getting married in Belize, I was happy to learn how easy it is to do. I then searched through what must’ve been hundreds of different Belize wedding resorts before choosing Yok Ha, and I am glad I did! Never in my wildest dreams did Kathy (now my happily-married wife) dream that we could afford a tropical wedding. I am incredibly pleased.”
-Alfredo Kull, Austin, Texas
“I’ve been dreaming about my wedding since I was a little girl, and I was NOT going to settle for anything less than perfect. A classmate had a Belize beach wedding a few years ago, and I saw the pictures on social media and knew that was what I wanted too. After reading reviews and sorting through all of the information online, I chose Yok Ha for that special day. My family LOVED the thrill of being on a tropical island, and my friends were all begging for an invitation. Long story short? My dream wedding came true, and now I’m the happiest woman on the planet!”
-Kathleen Varner, Montgomery, Alabama
“To be honest, I’d never heard of Belize before my fiance Charles mentioned it. I was worried that a Belize wedding would cost a fortune, especially at some offshore island like Yok Ha, but I was pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was. Best of all, we signed up for a complete Belize wedding package so the staff at Yok Ha took care of absolutely everything. I picked out the flowers and helped design the arrangements, but the ceremony, food, and even the Justice of the Peace were handled by Yok Ha. Truly, an unforgettable day! I never plan on getting remarried, but if I ever do, I think it’ll be in Belize again.”
