Many questions- Bali wedding

Sat Apr 18, 2009 4:03 pm

Hi everyone my name is Sarah this is my first post. I have been engaged about a year and have finally started making some wedding plans. FH and I are very interested in a wedding in Bali and we are going over next month to possibly look at a few venues. I have contacted WANGI Bali has anyone used them have any coments etc or can anyone recomend who they have used to plan there bali wedding. How did people find getting there hair and make up done in Bali as I want a western look. Does anyone know if you can get a spray tan done somewhere as I will proably go over a week b4 the wedding to relax and get organised etc am actually thinking a 4/5 day detox b4 the wedding. Also has anyone had any experience getting wedding/ bridemaid dresses made over there. We are possibly looking at july next year but this will just be over a yrs notice for guest. How much notice/ time to save did everyone give guests and do you think a yr is enough? I also wonderd how did people go organising 30 or so people did you all stay at the same hotel and get discount. Anyways any info, comments recomendations about any of the above or things like cakes, flowers, venues, music etc would be muchly appreciated. I am so excited and look forward to being part of this community.

Have a great day brides.. :D

Hi Saza42,

This is all new to me too.
I have just come back for being in Bali and I love it.. Now I am looking at getting marred over there.
Where do we start....
Hotels, Villas, Garden, Beach???
I am going to use a wedding planner and leave it in there hands I think it will be easyer and money well spent.
But there are so many wedding planners out there. I have looked at so many of them. I did find http://www.wwweddings.com.au
and they are in Australia and also opening a office in Bali so am hoping they know what there doing.
Let you know.
Good luck
ttbride :heart:

Hi Sarah - we're getting married in Uluwatu... I haven't heard of WANGI...

our venue will do flowers/cake/decorations etc. The was exxy so we're going direct with Bali Bakery, on a recommendation from a local.. so far organising ppl has been ok. we haven't booked accom yet but looking at everyone staying at the same place and definitely asking for discounts!!
I've decided against a spray tan b/c I don't want to sweat and melt all over my dress! Just b/c it's so humid I thought it might be diff to here... (happy for others input though)

we did let ppl know via email a bit in advance (didn't do save-the-dates) we sent our invites in Feb for a Jul wedding...

good luck... not sure what else you might need to know, but ask away...

I like the sound of them being in Australia and Bali? Did you look at venues when you were over recently and what do you have in mind a villa, beach etc? I cant wati to go over next month we are going for 5 days I am going to go crazy looking at venues etc. Jemminma has mentione Bali Bakery is great so I will check them out to. Will keep you posted please keep me up to date with your progress and anything else you come across. How many people are you planning on having at your weddings.

Hi Sarah - http://www.tirthabali.com/ this is our venue and there is an inhouse organiser... they are doing everything for me...
we went over in Dec to have a look but had pretty much decided...
we invited over 100 easy, have maybe 40 yeses and a lot not rsvp'd yet - we expect another 10 or 20...

we also looked here in Dec, but would have to get our own wedding planner... i loved this for a smaller wedding as you could actually stay with your guests too

I hope it's ok for me to post this here as I just posted it in the other Bali thread.

This wedding was shot at the Istana as well. The Istana is a gorgeous location, but a bit of a drive so make sure you organize mini buses for your guests at the end of the night.

The wedding and everything else was organized by http://www.balistarz.com/
Balistarz have some excellent makeup artists, as they organize a lot of commercial photoshoots in Bali.

And here is a link to some photos we did the day after: http://www.uberphotography.net.au/darkroom/share/?n=heike_gabi_dayafter

Hi, I am getting married in Bali in October. We are using a Bali wedding planner by the name of Jo (she is an Aussie) from Bali Mystical Weddings. She has been a life saver and is keeping my stress levels right down. If you want to book all of your guests into a hotel I encourage you to do this early. My travel agent went to book our guests in (6 months out) and the hotel was already booked out. She managed to contact a number of wholesalers to get rooms for the guests but we had to pay more, no discounts as they were the last rooms available. In relation to makeup I have decided to get a number of trials done here with MAC and Napoleon; the cost of the trails is remediable on product so I will the get all of the makeup and luckily for me my sister is a qualified beauty therapist and she will apply the makeup for the wedding. I have heard however that The Photo Factory have their own makeup artist and all of their photos look great so it might be something to look into.

I’m planning to get married in Bali Nov 2011 at the Conrad and have been in contact with a company called Tropical Destination Weddings http://www.tropicaldestinationweddings.com.au
They seem reasonably priced as they sent me a quote and offer good services . They will be there on the wedding day and also you get a free wedding website etc..
I’m waiting for a few more quotes from other wedding planners in Bali and then will decide..Goodluck!!!!!

Yes you can get legally married in Bali but need to have two ceremony. One is a religious ceremony and the other is a civil ceremony. This marriage will be recognised in Aust. however, if you want to change your name ECT it is a little more difficult. Most organisations (e.g. passports, drivers licence) require a certificate from Births Deaths and Marriages to organise a change of name on your ID. However, Births Deaths and Marriages will not issue you with a marriage certificate if you did not get married in the state (e.g. Victoria). Therefore you either have to change your name by Deed Poll or you can get the marriage certificate translated into English and communicate with the Pass Port office and see if they will accept a foreign marriage certificate.
