WEDDINGS IN BALI
For an unforgettable exchange of wedding vows, or a celebratory renewal of troths, there is no place more idyllically romantic than the tropical island of Bali. With its combination of wonderful weather, gorgeous locations, genuinely hospitable locals, world-class catering services and a kaleidoscope of entertainment options, Bali is the perfect choice for such a happy, special occasion.
Bali offers an overwhelming range of romantic themes and entertainment options for weddings. The Balinese are among the most creative and adaptive peoples in the world-given a dream theme, an expert team of local wedding organisers will get to work making it a reality.
The island has an extensive range of purpose-built wedding venues, many of which are located in the grounds of luxurious hotels and resorts. These idyllic wedding locations have the facilities to cater for the full range of wedding experiences, from the most intimate of ceremonies to large wedding groups.
The choice of memorable locations in Bali is seemingly endless-a cliff-top overlooking the azure Indian Ocean, a luxury villa surrounded by terraced rice fields, or a glistening white-sand beach illuminated by a stunning equatorial sunset.
Those who would like something more adventurous might explore options such as holding the ceremony on a floating sea pavilion, or (for certified divers) a watery union committed below sea-level. Other couples may choose to charter a boat to the outer islands, or pick a deserted beach in a secret location accessible only by helicopter charter. For an intimate atmosphere, a landscaped tropical garden ensures the perfect ambience for a private exchange of vows witnessed by a small group of family and friends. Large numbers of guests could be accommodated at one of the many purpose-built wedding venues located in the grounds of a luxurious hotel or resort.
Tropical does not have to mean sticky and hot-for those who prefer cooler temperatures, Bali Botanical Gardens or serene lake-side mountain venues may prove to be the ideal option.
There is a wide range of options and locations for religious-based services to choose from in Bali-Roman Catholic and Protestant churches are located all over the island, as are Buddhist temples and Moslem mosques. Those couples wishing to incorporate the spiritual aspects of Balinese philosophy into their ceremony could choose a regal-style wedding in an authentic palace setting.
Receptions with a unique Balinese theme could entertain guests with enchanting, traditional Balinese dancers, gilded in gold and throwing flower petals, accompanied by the enigmatic rhythms of a gamelan orchestra. More contemporary types of entertainment can be found in the local pools of talent which provide quality rock, jazz, blues, reggae, fusion and even cabaret performances to liven up a reception and get the party guests grooving.
The climate in Bali is generally very predictable and guests will find little need to concern themselves about the weather. If, on the off-chance, there is a tropical downpour, event organizers always have an alternative option so that this very special day will run without a hitch.
