We show you how you can make your Balinese wedding a uniquely local one!

‘When in Rome, do as the Romans do’ is a statement that we will wisely advise, for all brides and grooms-to-be keen on adding a unique touch to their Balinese wedding.

Read on, to discover three easy ways to add a touch of Balinese charm to your wedding!

1. Bedecked in Blooms

Mention flower decorations for a wedding in Bali, and the image of dual-coloured frangipanis come to mind. There are no end to the number of ways in which you can use these beautiful blooms – you may wear them, braid them in your hair, or include them in the flower arches or altar arrangements at your wedding venue.

For those who are feeling a little more extravagant, we will suggest that you scatter these fragrant florals all over the walkway for your wedding reception! Picture the lush grounds of a pretty garden, covered underneath an ample scattering of flowers in bright, rosy hues. We think that your guests will undoubtedly be charmed by the beautiful setting of your wedding event…

3. Props: Ditch those Flower Bouquets!

Do you find yourself thinking, ‘I’ve got flowers in my hair, on the grounds, on my wrists…can my bridesmaids hold on to something else apart from flower bouquets?’

Well yes, they definitely can! Tosh the flower bouquets aside, and hand them a selection of Balinese parasols in exchange!

Apart from a pretty addition to the wedding reception, the parasols also serve a handy function, as they shade your bridesmaids from the bright, tropical sunlight.
