Why you should get married in Bali

January 20, 2020

Imagine this. Being barefoot on the beach, your feet in the sea, the sun that is slowly setting and you answer ‘I do’ on the most important question, you will ever be asked in your life. Getting married in Bali is an unforgettable experience!

Reason 1 Bali has the most amazing wedding locations

Whether you decide to get married in one of the Balinese venue, with ocean view or somewhere in the mountains, surrounded by rice fields, you ill be guaranteed an idyllic setting. Now the new rising trend is the Bukit area venue in the last 3/4 years is the best location for a special wedding. Forget stiff formal gowns and black ties in Bukit, what made the wedding stand out, even more, was its 'Puffed Sleeves ' dress code. Breathtaking Cliffs Venue like Villa Plenilunio with a dramatic backdrop in the Nyang Nyang beach creates the most memorable event I even see.

Reason 2: Bali has a rich culture

With a mixture of Buddhism and Hinduism, Bali is a perfect mix of rich cultures, which comes with great traditions. The people are also very friendly and will try to add this to make sure everything is perfect on the happiest day of your life. A Balinese wedding ritual is a series of traditional ceremonies. In ancient Bali, nine Hindu sects existed, namely Pasupata, Bhairawa, Siwa Shidanta, Vaishnava, Bodha, Brahma, Resi, Sora, and Ganapatya. Each sect revered a specific deity as its personal Godhead Inscriptions from 896 and 911 do not mention a king, until 914, when Sri Kesarivarma is mentioned. They also reveal an independent Bali, with a distinct dialect, where Buddhism and Sivaism were practiced simultaneously. Mpu Sindok's great-granddaughter, Mahendradatta (Gunapriyadharmapatni), married the Bali king Udayana Warmadewa (Dharmodayanavarmadeva) around 989, giving birth to Airlangga around 1001. This marriage also brought more Hinduism and Javanese culture to Bali. Princess Sakalendukirana appeared in 1098. Suradhipa reigned from 1115 to 1119, and Jayasakti from 1146 until 1150. Jayapangus appears on inscriptions between 1178 and 1181, while Adikuntiketana and his son Paramesvara in 1204

Reason 3:Bali is the perfect destination for your honeymoon

Idyllic beaches, perfect ocean views and the best climate you can wish for. Bali is not only a great wedding destination, but it also a great location for a romantic escape. So why not spend your honeymoon here afterward as well? Being just 8 degrees south of the equator, Bali has a fairly even climate all year round. Average year-round temperature stands at around 30 °C (86 °F) with a humidity level of about 85%. Day time temperatures at low elevations vary between 20 to 33 °C (68 to 91 °F), but the temperatures decrease significantly with increasing elevation. The west monsoon is in place from approximately October to April, and this can bring significant rain, particularly from December to March. During the rainy season, there are comparatively fewer tourists seen in Bali. During the Easter and Christmas holidays, the weather is very unpredictable. Outside of the monsoon period, humidity is relatively low and any rain is unlikely in lowland areas.
