USA Today recommends Belize as a wedding destination
Destinations weddings are popular options for those who long for a beach-front wedding, but they can also be expensive. An article appearing in USA Today, however, highlights several locations that are beautiful and budget friendly, chief among them being Belize.
Belize boasts lovely sand-covered beaches, the second-largest barrier reef on Earth, pristine rainforests, and plenty of Mayan ruins to explore. You can also find affordable lodgings at any of the popular destinations in the country.
And since lobster is much cheaper here, you’ll have the chance to wow your wedding guests with a fancy meal for a fraction of the cost.
