“Wonderland Uluwatu” is located on an Uluwatu cliff with spectacular views, so this venue will be perfect for saying your i-do’s.
As the name suggests, Wonderland Uluwatu can bring wonderful memories to add to your wedding day.
Here are 6 wonders that can happen on your beautiful wedding day at Wonderland Uluwatu:
Wonder #1: Morning Procession & Preparation
Wonderland Uluwatu, surrounded by luxury resorts & private villas, makes choosing your accommodation very easy. (see here for some accommodation recommendations)
We strongly suggest you stay near Wonderland Uluwatu for a minimum of 2 nights (starting day-1). Therefore on the wedding day, you can do your morning preparation or rituals at the villa or resort where you are staying. While you are doing your makeup, photo shoot and everything at the villa, our production team can start preparing decorations, sound systems, lightings, photo booths at Wonderland Uluwatu.
Wonders #2: Ceremony or Re-vow
For ceremony and/or re-vow, we strongly suggest you choose “the Point” (see images here) as it offers a beautiful breathtaking sunset view at golden hour. Usually the ceremony starts at 4.30 or 5.00 PM, so you can enjoy the sunset view at 6.15 To 6.30 PM, and then take some awesome photos with your families, friends and other guests.
But please be aware that you might need some decoration or a marquee for your guests to protect them from sunshine. You may consult with your trusted wedding planner for this
For couples that prefer rustic or traditional themes, they might choose “the joglo” (see more images here) for their ceremony venue.
Wonders #3: Dinner Reception
Dinner is about celebration and experience, in this case you need a spacious venue to accommodate all your decorations, dancers and other entertainment.
Wonderland Uluwatu has an area called “the Pool” (see more images here) that can accommodate upto 300 seated guests easily in a buffet or set menu style.
Consult with your experienced wedding planner for guest flow, suitable entertainment and others planning areas that might need special attention & permit (ie. Fireworks)
Wonders #4: Catering & Alcohols
You can bring all the vendors and caterers in Wonderland Uluwatu, without any additional charge for corkage or hidden fees. And of course you also can bring your own liquors / alcohols without corkage fee. However, you need a good bar set up and a great bartender to serve your guests your preferred beverages. These benefits you can only find with Wonderland Uluwatu as their commitment to serve you better.
Wonders #5: Curfew & Rain
Wonderland Uluwatu offers a sound curfew up till 11.30 PM. However starting at 10.00 PM, we need to adjust (lower) the sound system 25-40% than normal. As its an outdoor venue, sound might disturb the local residents of the area. For the rainy season, you can choose between setting up a decorated tent/marquee or hire a Balinese rain stopper. Yes, you read that correctly, it's a rain stopper that locals believe can repel rain in the area during your event.
Meanwhile “The Joglo” can be your back up area in case of sudden rain.
For regulation regarding other items such as wishing lanterns, please contact your wedding planner to consult.
Wonders #6: Wedding Planner
Choosing a trusted and experienced wedding planner from the beginning will benefit you a lot. They will assist and guide you starting from point zero. They should guide you step by step from making draft budgets, choosing suitable & trusted vendors, planning the rundown / schedule for the day and most importantly organising and executing the wedding day. They will be your eyes and ears during set up and will make sure everything is done according to your plan. You will need an experienced team for your very special day that only happens once in your life.
