The best time for your Bali wedding

Most of the weddings in Bali are taken outdoors, therefore, the weather is very important. In the months of April and October, the weather is just perfect for an outdoor wedding. Also, remember that hotel rates and airfares tend to rise in June and August and venues become difficult to book. The earlier you book your venue, the better!

Selecting your venue

Bali is full of places that are famous for weddings! Be it a beach resort like Holiday Inn Resort Baruna Bali or a chapel or even private villas. Bali has it all! The choice of venues may sometimes be mind-boggling. However, knowing exactly what you are looking for and sticking to that theme will help you select the perfect wedding venue.

Consulting a wedding planner

Planning out a wedding is no easy task! It is sure to take up most of your time and energy and resulting in an utter waste of money too. Meeting up with a professional wedding planner who has the necessary contacts and resources to get things done, this can save you a whole lot of trouble.

Fixing a budget

Financing the whole wedding is the biggest struggle for couples these days. There are tons of cost to consider, some of them being travel costs, venue, number of guests and so on. You can either pay for these services directly or invest in an all-inclusive wedding package.

Planning the Honeymoon

Discuss the budget, duration of the honeymoon, where to go and what to do with the partner when the wedding is being planned. Go online and read up on best honeymoon destinations and if going overseas get the assistance of travel agents the likes of Aitken Spence Holidays to help plan the trip.

Best time to visit

Consider the best time to visit when selecting the dream destination. Avoid local holidays as many hotels and attractions will be crowded. If the price is a concern, travel during the least expensive times such as in the middle of the year.

Things to do

Honeymoons can be fun as there are many things to do from scuba diving, snorkelling, to golf, excursions to places of interest, indulgent spa treatments to river safaris and jungle walks, elephant treks, whale and dolphin watching and wildlife safaris.

Dining

One of the most romantic experiences honeymooners can have out here is dining under the stars. Many hotels offer special three-course meals on the beach with succulent seafood as part of the honeymoon package. The other option is a romantic early morning river cruise with a champagne breakfast.

Important things to note

As the Maldives is an Islamic country, you are not legally allowed to get married here, unless of course you’re a local. Weddings in Maldives are more of the celebration rather than the actual marriage – get hitched before you celebrate here.
