We have decided to get married in bali.. although we have never been there before. I know right? we must be crazy! hehe
I know people will say to get a wedding organizer but so far i have emailed 9.. yes 9! and no one is getting back to me efficiently?? i know its a busy time for them but with june only 10 months away i need to secure a venue asap so im finding im having to do alot of it myself.
We are on a fairly tight budget as we are paying for it ourselves. I canceled my $25k hunter valley wedding because i sat down one night and thought.. wait.. what a complete waste of money for 8 hours? So the idea behind bali is that its a small, intimate ceremony with our selected few loved ones and we want value for money. Also we dont want to spend a fortune!
Location in bali doesnt phase us to much. Obviously we would like a nice area out of the hustle and bustle that i hear kuta is, but we are more interested in nice scenery and venue. We only want 15-20 guests and want to avoid paying an event fee. We want cocktails and canapes served after the ceremony and nice intimate dinner with cake as desert. Ideally a villa that has a chef and is willing to cook for our small group would be wonderful. We are thinking of asking all guests to buy spirits duty free on the way over and we will reimburse them. Do you think they will allow us to use this for cocktails?
We have decided we would like a Villa wedding, our budget for a villa is maximum $200 per room.. for example for a 5 bedroom villa a budget of $1000 per night. We would love a beach front or clifftop villa with a nice outlook fore a sunset ceremony but this is not essential. Does anyone have any recomendations? We also want something with a bali feel to it, not just a big nice house.
I found a photographer with what seems like really reasonable packages and nice pics, they also do hair and makeup-http://www.iwanphotographybali.com/bali ... tin-julie/
has anyone used them before?
Also cakes by Ixora cakes-http://www.ixoracakes.com/
Anyone dealt with these?
We are very excited about our destination wedding but would love some help and advice! thank you xx
