Bali Bells

the club boutique hotel

So, he popped the question (yay!) and you said yes (phew!). You’ve chosen Bali as your wedding venue (an excellent choice if we do say so ourselves), and now the real fun begins…

We love Seminyak. Not only because it’s a mere 20 minute drive from the airport (a weary traveller plus) but because there’s so much there to keep your guests entertained.

Create the aisle

A private villa is always a good option for your wedding and reception. Elite Havens have some great ones on their books. Try Atas Ombak, Semanapura or The Istana. Tirtha in Uluwatu is the area’s only dedicated wedding venue with a view to die for.

Calm the nerves

Excited and nervous, the night before the Big Day is the perfect night for a wee pre-wedding drinkie-poo, try Ku De Ta or La Sal. Both these venues can cater for a pre-wedding group.

Girl Friday

Choose a wedding planner who works on a flat fee instead of a percentage of your overall budget (that way they’re not incentivised to increase your budget). Libby at Elite Events is one of the best. M&M also offer an excellent wedding planning service.

Beauty sleep

Check out Uma Sapna (our favourite), The Samaya, Bali Sentosa, Desa Seni and Tony’s Villa for hotels to suit everyone’s budget and taste.

Food, glorious food

Bali Catering and M&M Catering are top of our list for caterers.

Hold steady

Don’t be afraid to negotiate with all suppliers. You may be surprised at what you can get if you hold fast.
