Destination wedding? Destination: Bali!
03 Apr 2019
In the past, couples married in the same church their parents did, or took vows in a park, garden, or on a beach. But these days it seems we’re more adventurous. In fact, one in four couples now choose to combine their nuptials with a decadent ‘destination wedding’.
Why choose Bali for a destination wedding?
Because destination weddings are fun and unique, it makes sense to choose a fun and unique location. That’s why Bali – especially Canggu – is perfect. Famous for great beaches, snorkelling in crystal clear waters, world-class surfing, gourmet food and a vibrant but chilled nightlife, saying ‘I do’ in Canggu will have your guests raving about your nuptials for many anniversaries to come!
While destination weddings are wonderful, they do call for a little more planning – after all, you’re juggling booking a holiday and a wedding all in one; and from afar. Check out our top tips for getting hitched in Bali.
1. Book a beautiful base
A destination wedding means all your loved ones can holiday together, so you need to choose the perfect place for everyone to play and stay. Choose a spot that’s central but offers secluded luxury, like the five-star Theanna Eco Village and Spa.
2. Add experiences
This is your chance to make memories with your family and friends, and Bli offers activities in spades. Tackle white water rafting together, marvel at the amazing rice terraces or a pamper day at the spa.
3. Let your hair down
Canggu isn’t as hectic as neighbouring areas, making it ideal for pre-wedding fun. Gather your group to enjoy delicious local food and cocktails, then hit the beach and dance under the moonlight.
4. Snap the scenery
Bali gifts visitors a breath-taking backdrop of stunning sunsets, white sand, and lush greenery, making for beautiful wedding photos, but you’ll also need a great photographer! Make sure you read reviews and meet your photographer over Skype before the wedding. Then, arrive a few days early to seek the perfect spots for stunning images.
5. Have a heavenly honeymoon
With a destination wedding, you’re already on your honeymoon, and a Theanna Villas honeymoon package is the ideal indulgence, with everything from fragrant floral baths to candlelight dinners.
Overall, a destination wedding will perfectly marry your love of travel with your love for each other. Selamat Hari Pernikahan!
