Updated: Dec 2, 2022
A destination wedding is sought after by all brides and grooms. After all who say no to a destination wedding on the pristine beaches of the Indian ocean? No one! With the right planning and support, a destination wedding in Bali becomes an event to remember, not just for the bride and groom but for all those attending.
So the big question is how to make a Bali Wedding stress free and enjoyable for everyone involved, especially the bride and groom and their families.
Hire a Wedding Planner
Leave it to the professionals! A DIY Bali wedding is not for the faint-hearted and with many top Bali wedding planners available it will be one of the best decisions you make! If you do not understand the language and are unfamiliar with the city, you are better off letting a Bali wedding planner handle your affairs for you. They have the right contacts, know all the hidden Bali gems and will get you a much better deal than you can for yourself. So trust them to make your dream Bali Wedding become a reality.
As we are all just learning to plan and organize events which are Covid-safe, ensure that your planners and all other vendors take every precaution necessary. All events, activities and hotels should be selected keeping in mind the safety of the guests.
Choose your venue first and then finalize your date.
Be flexible when it comes to your wedding date. The venue is much more important and that is what will set the tone for your entire wedding. Find a few venues you like, check their availability and then finalize your wedding date. Also, in Bali it might be possible to get better rates for midweek events!
Don’t make your guests travel too much
Bali traffic can be a nightmare if itineraries are not planned well. Don’t under-estimate the time it will take to reach from one point to another while planning a Bali wedding. Recommend accommodation to guests that are near-by to your venue and don’t hold events too far apart from one another.
Keep your guests entertained
A Bali destination wedding has a lot of scope for including a variety of activities for your guests to remain interested and enjoy themselves! In Bali, you can organize private pool parties, cliff-top cocktail parties, even opt for a luxurious spa treatment! Plan your events in such a way that your guests have something to look forward to every day and every night!
Plan your budget
While a Bali wedding can cost significantly lower than weddings back home, you will still need to plan your budget carefully. It is very easy to get carried away while making bookings and ignoring extra fees such as the local banjar fees and taxes. Make sure you confirm the final amount including all the extras and taxes before making any bookings so that you don’t overshoot your budget.
Many people have said having a destination wedding is the best decision they have made. It will definitely be one of the best experiences of your life and memorable for all your guests. But ensure that you plan ahead, hire a trusted wedding planner and choose an incredible location. Then you are all set to enjoy your big day with your loved ones!
