Flowers & Decorations
Portofino Beach Resort is a small property and therefore we typically cater to a maximum of 70 guests for a wedding ceremony and reception. We offer an a la carte option from Portofino Restaurant’s menu for groups of 10 & under. For groups larger than 10, we offer a casual Belizean BBQ or a customized plated menu prepared with all different menu options for you to choose from.
Hair and Makeup
Whether you choose to use the breezes to your advantage and wear your hair down or let a long veil flutter beautifully, or if you want to keep every hair in place with a half up bridal hairstyle, wedding braid or classic curly up-do, our hairdresser can help you find the perfect hairstyle! Natural or romantic make-up styles are recommended for the humid weather, but classic and dramatic makeup is not a problem for our beautician.
Our wedding planner is happy to arrange a meeting with the hair dresser/makeup artist before the ceremony to ensure that you get the perfect look for your photos.
We assist in making recommendations for a professional baker located in Ambergris Caye. We work with competent and reliable bakers and pastry shops that will not disappoint in ensuring that both taste and presentation are what is expected.
