Picture a tropical beach tucked far away from the bustle of cities, lined by coconut palms and little thatched huts. Imagine the sound of gentle waves hitting the shore as you walk up to the aisle under a cloudless blue sky. Your soon-to-be spouse is standing up there, with love in his eyes and a gentle wind in his hair. Exotic flowers and traditional Balinese decorations adorn the canopies all around. Imagine exchanging wedding vows with your soon-to-be partner-for-life just as the sun is setting over the horizon, lending a mellow orange glow to the sky.

Revel in the blessings and good wishes of your family and friends under a charming night sky illuminated by countless stars and festive lights. Hire traditional Balinese folk singers and dancers to entertain your guests, and dish out a lavish culinary spread with special focus on local Balinese delicacies for which this small island is well-known. To keep your guests happily occupied while you prepare for your big day, you can also make arrangements for local guided tours, boat trips on the turquoise waters or snorkelling opportunities for the more adventurous of the lot. Do that, and be ready to get complimented all year round for ‘the wedding that took everyone’s breath away’!
How To Get Here
The fastest and most convenient way to get to Bali is by flying to Denpasar Airport located 15 kilometres out of the city. Cabs can easily be hailed from outside the airport, but for a wedding party, it is recommended to pre-book cab services so as to avoid delays and hassles. Another, more romantic way to reach Bali is aboard a cruise liner. Fly the wedding guests out to Singapore, and book a cruise from there on till Bali. Better still, organise a wedding function on board the cruise to make it an even more memorable wedding.
