There are so many reasons to have a Bali wedding – tropical climate, gorgeous backdrops, and best of all, you’re already at your honeymoon destination. With a little bit of inside know-how you will be able to create the perfect wedding. Here are our top tips for getting hitched in paradise.
Call in the experts
Save yourself the headache and call in a wedding planner to orchestrate your dream day. These maestros of marriage can find you the perfect location and arrange everything from caterers to DJs, photographers to florists. We recommend stylist extraordinaire Libby Doherty, who produces some of the most glamorous weddings on the island.
Gather the blooms
What bride doesn’t want a bouquet to remember? Bloomz creates stunning arrangements, incredible table settings, and all types of floral displays. They also have a fabulous range of antiques and furniture to make your wedding look super special. Martha Florist does great wedding flowers and makes some of the prettiest floral wedding arches we have ever seen.
Let them eat cake
The wedding cakes from Ixora are works of art and they can make anything from personalized cupcakes to a towering croque en bouche. Bali Catering Company also makes stunning wedding cakes that are almost too good to cut.
Get a fab frock
If you haven’t already packed the Vera Wang and need to get a wedding gown pronto then make a trip to Dindarella, where you will find beautiful dresses, accessories, as well as some very wearable bridesmaids outfits that won’t need to be put in the bottom drawer once the big day is over. Mother of the Bride will be sure to find something here too.
Pamper yourself pre-wedding beauty treats
If you and your bridesmaids want to indulge in some pre-wedding pampering then you can’t beat a day at Glo Day Spa & Salon, visit their salons or they can come to your villa. Glo can even look after your hair and make-up on the big day.
Have a girls’ night out
Does dinner and drinks with the girls sound a bit sedentary? How about pole dancing at The Art of Body? You’ll get a workout, learn a new talent and have a laugh at the same time. The premium package includes a glass of champagne, a barman, and a group photo. Sounds like a dangerous combination to us.
Hair and make-up
Every bride wants to look their best on the day (and so do the bridesmaids and the mother-in-law if the truth be known) so you need to get the hair and make up just right. Bali Hair and Make Up will have you all looking gorgeous, as will the expert hand of Yeanne.
You’re going to show your grandchildren these snaps so you want to make sure they’ll stand the test of time. There are some fabulous photographers in Bali and for shots you’ll want to frame we can’t go past Dominik Photography, Richard Watson Photography, and Eye Con Photography Bali. True professionals.
