I didn’t get married in Bali – but I would recommend The Hanging Gardens in Ubud.  It is the most fabulous hotel.  It’s very private and romantic.

I LOVED Bali.

Hi! I’m getting married in sept 2013 in Bali. Not booked yet but planning n sanur. Are you using a wedding organiser there? We’ve been dealing with “Bali wedding butler” and so far so good, but nothing booked yet, which is leaving things a little late I suppose…. :/

@ladyest:  aaaah, you’re from London? We’re British too but actually living in Jakarta, Indonesia now. So close but so  far from Bali!

i like your idea of reception at metis, how many guests are you having? We looked into that too. I went to Metis in July last year, the food was amazing And it’s a stunning venue with. Nice bar area too. Only problem is the drinks prices are pretty extortionate which is why we have chosen to have a villa wedding then we can supply our own wine/champagne. 

i think with the wedding planner you can just get a legal wedding package from them for $750 And they sort out the paperwork for you, if you wanted. 

 

Sorry for random full stops, damn iPad auto correct sometimes in overdrive!!

@lalalani:  Aah another Bali wedding this year!

where are you getting married/reception?  

we are having 20-30 guests, probably at a villa wedding/reception in sanur (budget friendly!). 

if you’re doing a villa wedding, any suggestions on catering Options? A lot of the catering still seems pretty pricey/minimum guests very high so I haven’t had much luck there yet. 

The only thing I can say is ixora cakes ARE AMAZING! 

 

yay, happy planning! Xx

@ladyest:  SO EXCITING!

Definintely true you have to pay 2-3 nights minimum stay in low season (Sept) so I imagine 4-6 nights high season kind of defeats the point.  plus (this sounds terrible) i dont really want to stay so close to either his family, or my family, sharing a villa (and definitely not both families in one! haha!)

Bali wedding butler found us BBQ catering company (not the one advertised on the web) which does BBQ food for 450.000++ per head with no minimum order which is less than half the price of the one on the internet. the joys of having someone who speaks bahasa indonesia at your side. 

we’re currently buying bottles and bottles of spirits at changi duty free each month, (SO CHEAP) and we’re going to give to our jakarta guests to bring a bottle along with them so we can create some cocktails there. our parents from the UK and south africa can bring some champagne with them. good old family πŸ˜‰ 

i plan on doing my own make up… but no luck on hairdresser yet. in true indo style it SHOULD be easy to arrange a hairdresser to come to the villa to do everyones hair at once… but its just finding someone reliable. i only want a bouncy blowdry so i suppose anyone will do, its not really that complicated. any suggestions?  

Are you doing wedding favours? Any ideas? the last time i was in bali i found some amazing candle holders i was thinking of giving something like that…maybe? 

 

sooo exciting πŸ˜‰

Hi All, 

Bali is my second home and I too am getting married there. 

I have been to several Bali weddings and I can highly recommend villa weddings over hotel weddings. Soo much more special, private, luxurious and affordable – sounds impossible to have all four things together but it’s not!!

Add http://www.facebook.com/balivillaslifestyle to facebook and explore some of the options. That’s my villa agent book thru and some is amazing!!

 

For suppliers check out-

Catering: Bali Catering Company

Grocer + Grind

Cory’s Catering

Photography:Bali photo factory is BEST

Day Spa Preps: Think Pink NY Style Spa

Hair & Make Up: Bali Edge

Photo Booth: also Bali Edge

 

If ou want any restaurants, sunset bars, must Do’s or villa recxomendations don’t hesitate to let me know πŸ™‚

Hi there Bali bees!

 

My wedding will be in September 2013 and I was wondering any one has recommendations for a makeup artist? I’ve tried Bali Edge but unfortunately they are booked up for my wedding day πŸ™ 

 

also, would anyone know if it is easy to buy alcohol in Bali? I have hired bar staff instead of getting an open bar package with my caterer in order to save some money, and am hoping on being able to get loads of liquor and beer a local supermarket. However, not sure if I would be able to find champagne anywhere – would anybaa have an idea? 

 

 

 

Lastly, I would like to hold welcome drinks for my guests the day before the wedding and am thinking of Coccoon Beach club – however am open to any suggestions if anyone knows good places!

Hi Bali Bees  πŸ™‚

I’m from Austraila & getting married in Bali in May 2014 at a Cliff top Villa in Uluwatu.

I’ve done HEAPS of research and although I am yet to decide which supplier to go with for some things, I thought it would be nice to share what I’ve found. I came across these suppliers from bali wedding magazines & forums & have looked into them myself I think they’re quite good (quality and price wise).

HAIR & MAKE UP: 1) Yeanne (highly recommended), 2) Bali Hair & Make up Company, 3) Spoiled

FLOWERS: 1) Bloomz, 2) Gloriosa

WEDDING PLANNERS: 1) Global Weddings, 2) Beyond Events (also a caterer), 3) Destination Weddings (Aussie based), 4) Dream Weddings (Chris Golding)

CATERERS: 1) M&M, 2) Bali Catering Company, 3) Beyond Events ‘Grind & Grocer’

PHOTOGRAPHERS (in order of price, highest to lowest): 1) Axioo, 2) Bali Photo Factory, 3) Veli Photography, 4) Erwin Photography, 5)  D Weddings, 6) Richard Watson, 7) Rudy Lin, 8) Iwan Photography

VIDEOGRAPHERS: 1) Point One Designs, 2) Bali wedding videos, 3) Bali Photo Factory, 4) Ricky & Co, 5) Iwan Photography

@pinkbumblebee There are several alcohol suppliers in Bali. Be aware that the prices are exhorbitant for imported brands (Bottle of Veuve can set you back $140+). There is a brand called “Cape Discovery”- basically the company imports grapes from WA and makes the wine in Indonesia so you can get red & white wine (even sparkling) for about $20 per bottle. I’ve heard they are ok quality. Otherwise, check out the online booze suppliers based in Jakarta that can send booze to Bali- I think the selection will be greater and price cheaper (even with courier costs). Good luck!
