Quality is infinitely better than saving a few bucks.

Your wedding is a momentous and joyous occasion and as you plan your wedding, there are few things you should definitely spend more money on.

Which things are worth the splurge?

1. A Fabulous Venue

We might be biased, but having a stunning wedding venue is one of the most important details of your special day. The venue will play a crucial part in creating the right atmosphere at your wedding and the venue’s style will be key to defining the rest of your wedding theme. From cliff-top locations with 180-degree views of the seas to chic lush tropical gardens, we have a wedding venue for you, your groom and your style. If you’re into traditional Balinese surrounding, private beachfront and magical sunset, Sungai Tinggi Beach Villa ticks all the boxes. The villa’s dedicated events space – a coconut grove directly connected to the sands via a timber walkway, makes an unforgettable setting where you pose for portraits, exchange vows and party. Balinese dances can also be staged in the natural amphitheatre of the grounds.

Other recommended beachfront venues: Atas Ombak, Villa Batujimbar, The Anandita, Arnalaya Beach House and Taman Ahimsa.

 2. A Wedding Planner

We are not saying that it is impossible to organise your wedding on your own, but the right wedding planner can save you money, expenses AND the stress. The wedding planner takes care of it all for you and ensures that each last detail and your requirements are met - a key to having a successful wedding in Bali. You should focus on being present at the happiest day of your life, and not stressed for making timely decisions in trying to make everything perfect. From photographers, DJs, flowers, cakes, flowers, you name it and an experienced wedding planner will help make them come true.

3. Professional Hair and Make-up artist

This is your special day and you want to look flawless. High-quality makeup will make you look your best in your wedding photos and most importantly, last through your entire wedding day (especially in Bali’s hot and humid weather). Bridal makeup done by professionals will neither smudge nor sweat off and you will look amazing even after the last dance. A professional makeup artist knows how to accentuate your best features and knows what is required to suit wedding photography, while a hairstylist knows how to make your hairstyle looks full, flattering and great at every angle.

4. Flowers

Just as the bride’s wedding dress greatly impacts the feeling and style of the wedding, so do the flower arrangements. From bouquets and boutonnieres to artistic floral creations for table centrepieces and flower petals down the aisle at the ceremony, flowers bring colour, life and aroma to a wedding. They make table settings more beautiful, a wedding venue more magical and create the right mood for your wedding with their beauty, colour and elegance.

5. Wedding Photographer and Videographer

Your photos are the only lasting memory you will have of your wedding day as these precious memories will be cherished forever for your family and generations to come. An experienced wedding photographer and videographer know when to sneak a shot of your father looking at you with a tear in his eye, how to round up a big group of people for photos (cheerfully and effectively) and know exactly what to do if you want a photograph of you and your spouse gorgeously backlit by a red sunset.
