Planning your wedding in Bali
Your Bali Wedding Planner is one of the first and most important choices you should make when planning a wedding in Bali. Your Bali Wedding Planner should be creative and an extension of what your dream wedding should look like. This is a once in a lifetime event so it is very important that your wedding runs smoothly and stress free. Quick responses to your emails and live call via Skype are important. Below are some tips to help you along the way.
Appoint a good and reputable Wedding Planner and be sure they are licensed company in Bali. The wedding planner should send you a wedding checklist so you can give all your details of what you require for your wedding as well as your personal details of contact numbers, email address, country, etc. Ask how long they have been established and be sure to have a letter of agreement or contract so everything is clear from the beginning about expectations, procedures, and cancellation policies.
Your next important step is for your wedding planner to help and assist you to find the best Villa/Venue and location in Bali that caters to you and your guest’s desires. Your wedding planner should be able to give you a good overview of the villa you are going to choose. Space is important as well as service from the villa you will stay in. Try to book your villa well in advance as they tend to book up quickly.
Food and Beverage is your next important items making sure you will have a menu that will give outstanding satisfaction. Your wedding planner should know who are the best and that will fit your budget. Schedule at time at least six months in advance to come to Bali before the wedding to do food tasting, site inspections to visit your Villa so you can get a good feel of how your wedding will look on the day. You can plan your whole wedding in about two days if your wedding planner is organized. The wedding planner should send you an itinerary for your visit 2 weeks in advance so you know exactly what you will be doing so your trip is fulfilled.
Decorations: A good wedding planner will have at least 2 florists they work with each having own signature designs as well as the wedding planner being creative with the theme and vision you have. We suggest that when doing a site inspection of the villa that the wedding planner schedule the decorator to attend so you will have a better vision of how things will look. The wedding planner should also have some suggestions to help enhance your vision to bring the look of your wedding to another level.
Entertainment: Let your wedding planner know the kind of music you would like to have to entertain your guests. Weather it be live band Jazz, R+B, top 40 or DJ, your wedding planner should have plenty of the top entertainers to choose from. We suggest that when you visit Bali that they try and arrange a live performance or demo in the studio as well as meet the bandleader or DJ. You may also want to have some other entertainment to surprise your guests like fire works, Balinese dancing, fire dancing, etc. to give the wow factor.
Photographer: Choosing an expert photographer to document your wedding day in Bali is very important since your photographs will be part of your memories and will remain with you forever. This also goes for the video. If there is ever a regret from a wedding couple it is that they decided not to have video but from our experience always wished they had professional videographers along with the photographers a very important investment for your lifetime memories. We always suggest choosing a company that uses 2 good photographers to be able to capture the close ups and the candid shots.
Plan activities and social events outside the wedding day so you have time to spend with the friends and family who will also attend your wedding. Your Bali wedding planner can arrange pre and post events to help the whole family and guests enjoy not only the wedding but a holiday as well. Your wedding planner can help create a custom designed holiday with travel tips, accommodations, recommended activities, which can keep your family entertained for the entire stay in Bali.
