Wow! Just came back from Bali and very impressed with the highly developed Bali wedding market. It’s a big business down there. With a seemingly endless choice of venues combined with the sand, sea and sun (not to mention actual blue skies), its no wonder that Bali is an increasingly popular destination for Hong Kong couples.
It is undeniably a favourite destination with Japanese couples too. The Conrad Hotel, Bali can host up to five weddings in one day and handle more than 450 weddings a year. Our Event Producer (Bali), Michelle joked, “If you’re late to the ceremony, you might end up marrying the wrong guy!”
Venues such as Thirtha Bridal (with a Japanese owner) have impeccable standards and stunning views but also stringent rules and a less than ideal rain contingency plan. We had to rule out other venues simply because they were either too small or didn’t quite meet our standards. Overall though, there is something for everyone.
We also found some stunning private villas from Bali Home Management for our clients to choose from, not to mention the island’s top caterer. So all in all, it was a highly successful trip!
