Bali - Wedding Entertainment

Fri Apr 30, 2010 4:14 pm

Hi,
First ever forum post so here goes...I am planning a wedding in Bali for April 2011. My partner and i are heading there in 5 weeks to meet with our caterer, villa manager, wedding planner etc and i think i have most things under control. The thing im struggling with is entertainmnent for the reception. Im thinking a band and am looking for one that plays fairly new music as most of our guests are in their 20s. I was hoping for some suggestions that i could check out while we are there in a few weeks or even some websites. Hoping you can help. Also does anyone know how good Iwan from Iwan Photography is? :)

Hello and welcome :D

It sounds like we're both at the same stage in planning. We're having ours, late May 2011, and heading over there in July to meet the venue etc.

As for entertainment, after a bit of research I have just decided to just hire a sound system, and I'll bring my own playlist on iPod, MP3 and CDs, just in case something isn't compatible. I have 13 months to put a playlist together, when I hear songs we love I'll just add them as I go. The sound system will be sourced by my venue's function manager, I didn't have much luck finding one myself. Agreed on US$200 (started off as 500!) not sure what to expect, but we're only having around 20 people.

For the photographer, not familiar with Iwan but if you haven't already, google him and check out his galleries. And make sure you haggle, I got a bonus hour for free but I really could have tried harder to get a discount for booking early.

Not sure I'm much help :| but also interested to hear what others have to suggest about entertainment.

Good luck with it all :)

I have family that married in bali. for photographer using this company [url]lombokwedding.com[/url].
really professional photographer and using really high end camera and expensive lens, so image that they result so great full.
For sound system, you can use bali irama sound, catering using IBU NURLELA catering. in bali must be careful to find catering, because sometimes the food is not fresh. My friend so lucky with the catering.
If you need my help, just send me message, I will try to answer your questions as quick as possible.

I have photographed a few weddings in Bali and it's great if you can incorporate some traditional elements as well. This makes it feel less like a resort wedding.
Here is a link to a pre wedding party I photographed that included traditional Balinese dancing.

I can recommend a wonderfull wedding oganizer in Bali, his name is Ketut, mail murtaketut@yahoo.com
He assist and help us with organizing the wedding in Bali in 2009, as soon as we had not so high budget, his prices was more than low, and service very high.
