If you are dreaming of a romantic beach wedding, Bali is the perfect choice with its warm tropical climate and stunning views over the Indian Ocean.
You can organise an elopement and spend a few days in one of the luxurious beachfront resorts or choose one of Bali’s stunning wedding venues and invite your friends and family. It takes six hours of flying to get there so everyone can easily join your celebration.
When To Go
The weather is pleasant all year round with temperatures varying from 30 to 32 degrees, so you can go there anytime you like. The wet season starts in October and lasts until April, so if you are planning your wedding in one of these months, expect high temperatures and sunshine but also occasional outbursts of rain. You can still have your wedding on the beach during this time of year, but make sure to have a marquee to prevent getting soaked. The best weather is from June to August with clear skies and refreshing breezes.
How To Choose The Location
When choosing a location for your wedding opt for the south of Bali because it has white sandy beaches while other parts tend to have black sand. Nusa Dua is the most popular area with amazing beachfront restaurants and luxury resorts. The St. Regis Bali Resort and The Seminyak are among the very best wedding venues you can find, but you can also hire a private villa for your special day.
While Bali weddings are in many aspects considered to be cheaper than the ones in Australia, food and drinks can be quite expensive. Keep in mind that wedding flowers are harder to find so it is best to order them in advance. Bringing your own photographer is also a good idea if you want quality images and hiring a wedding planner is crucial if you want to avoid stress, especially if you are celebrating your wedding in a villa.
If you are planning to have a wedding ceremony in Bali, you should know that there are many different certificates you need to present upon arrival to make your marriage legal. Find all the information on the required legal paperwork and make sure that you don’t omit any important details.
