I’m getting married in Bali at the Bulgari Resort. It’s a very private resort that is located at a cliff’s edge overlooking the ocean.
For my ceremony, I am having a transparent aisle over this infinity pool which is right at the cliff’s edge. This is what it looks like:
The aisle will have fresh petals and flowers strewn throughout, like the picture above.
Here is an example of another wedding that was held there:
I still feel like I want to decorate it more though. I’m tempted to erect an arbor and remove that pedestal.
Do you think I should pay for a floral arbor or should I leave it as it is? Or should I do something else all together? Maybe two large floral arrangements on either side?
The other thing is, I also have 4BMs and 4GMs. Will it be too crowded if there’s an arbor there too?

I personally would leave it the way it is. What an amazing view, and amazing venue! I think putting something like an arbor would take away from the natural beauty.
If you want more flowers, maybe decorate the pedestal in like a mini arch? Or with just more flowers hanging down the sides.
I’m jealous that this is your venue! Wow!

@Vera Girl: Noooo, no arbor! That view must not be blocked!
I’m so in love with your ceremony space. Unbelievable!!!

I think it is perfect the way it is. The background view is the big element here along with the floaty look of the wedding space over the pool.
I say it needs nothing more!

Wow, that’s stunning. No additonal decoration neccessary.

Thank you, ladies. That was my initial thought months ago too, but as I creep closer to the wedding date, I think I’m becoming really neurotic
Do you think white or pink flowers and petals for the aisle? I first thought white, but now I think pink has more impact?
My wedding colours are blush pink, ivory, charcoal and gold.
This is my dress and my BM dress. If I went with pink, should it be bright pink like the wedding above, or a softer pink to match with my wedding colours?

wow, beautiful ceremony site! I agree you want to keep things minimal because of the view, but I actually thought the pedestal was a clear arbor in the first picture and think a clear arbor would be a great idea (if there is such a thing). I also like the idea of maybe two thin pillars with floral arrangement, placed right where the space between the wedding party and the officiant in the third photo!
Edit: oops, sorry if I had things worse. Any way you go it’s a breathtaking site on its own! I like the white petals versus the bright pink petals… The white is more serene and lends better to the surrounding, imo. I think a scattering of both blush pink and white would be pretty!

I vote white flowers. It would look crisp and clean and ethereal with that ceremony space.
That ceremony site is stunning. o.m.g.

I think you should keep it white, but if you go with pink, chose a muted pink. Your colors seem to be more muted then the bright pink of that photo, and I think it would take away from it, not add to it. Maybe go mostly white, and chose to add a few soft pink or ivory flowers into it?
I am loving EVERYTHING about your wedding, btw, and would love to be a guest at it! Please post some photos of everything together! Your dress is amazing, the venue is incredible and the BMs dresses are so pretty.

First, WOW! That is absolutely gorgeous!! Second, I think it would look too crowded if you tried to put an arbor on there along with your officiant, BMs, GMs, yourself and your FI.
As far as the flowers go, both would look perfectly gorgeous. Could you maybe do a mixture of a blush and white petals??

I like it how it is. I feel like and arbor will block the view and will not really fit in with the simplicity of the floating aisle.

i would leave it as it is – just be wary of afternoon tropical rain and if you are using it at night maybe some floating candles

Thank you everyone for your opinions! Well, my mum agrees with you all that I should leave it simply as it is, and use a mixture of white and blush pink flowers down the aisle, haha.
@arametta127: I think you’re right about it being too crowded! My BMs are scared of falling off the edge of the platform as it is haha.
@eloping: Thanks, eloping. We’re getting married in August, which is dry season, so I have my fingers crossed for lovely, balmy weather. We have a semi-open marquee for the reception though just in case as you never really know with the tropics.
The ceremony will be at 5.30pm which is around sunset, so I will definitely put some floating candles in the pool (if they allow it). I hadn’t even thought of that, so thanks for the great suggestion!

Vera, if it does rain… its the tropics, give it about 10mins and it should stop. August is a good time – its the southern hems winter so i usually found its very comfortable/warm for the non locals
dusk/sunset is when the mozzies come out so maybe have some low smell bug spray around for guests comfort
