Why you need a wedding planner in Bali

Having a wedding is stressful enough but having it in another country can add to the stress levels even more to the point where it can become a nightmare. This is why, especially in a country like Bali, Indonesia it is vital to get a wedding planner to handle everything for you. with out one you are going to end up having some serious issues that could affect your dream day. So following are reasons why you must use the services of a wedding planner.
# 1: They speak the local language so there is absolutely no misunderstanding when it comes to dealing with suppliers or organising venues or villas. Language can prove a huge barrier when it comes to getting everything right and trying to negotiate with someone whose English language skills are not up to scratch can prove frustrating. Your Balinese wedding planner does speak Bahasa so they can easily deal with he trades necessary to make your wedding day harmonious.
# 2: You will end up paying more. Sure wedding planners do take a commission and charge a fee, but if you think you can get a better deal with suppliers by going it alone, then good luck. Once they know you a foreigner they will bump up the price. Basically, in the long run you will end up getting ripped off at some point along the line. Wedding planners have their own favourite suppliers and have already negotiated the best rates and deals so why not take advantage of this. Even better, why not give them a realistic budget work with and let them take care of all the running around.
# 3: In Bali, getting hitched is not as easy as it would appear there are some hurdles, paper work and compliance issues that you must be aware of and only your planner will have these on hand ready to give to you prior to the big day. Nothing worse, that arriving only to find out that your marriage is not legal.
# 4: If your unsure about the type of wedding you want or the venue setting your planner will have all the options at their disposal ready for you to choose from. Bali is such a gorgeous island and is the perfect back drop to any wedding, therefore finding the ideal venue that suits your specific needs is going to be less of a drama if you leave it to a professional as they will have lists of wedding venues and villas at their finger tips. 
# 5 Planners will also be happy to meet with you before the event and run through everything. For the ceremony right through to the reception, you will know what to expect without stressing out about every details. This is real peace of mind and worth every cent, and it goes even further in a country like Bali where little things can go wrong very quickly.
# 6: Wedding planners can customise weddings based on your exact brief – they are so much more proficient and creative at this than your stock standard, garden variety, ‘same as’ style weddings that hotels offer. Having wedding at one of the big hotels is fine if you are looking for little or no imagination. They churn these out en masse so you have to ask yourself is this the type of approach you want?
So don’t try to penny pinch and think that your going to save some money by taking a DIY approach or go for the cookie cutter hotel wedding. The risks are far too high and the day will end up being far less special that you wanted.. Let an experienced team on veterans like Your Bali Wedding handle all aspects of your big day. You won’t regret it.

5 reasons why Seminyak Villas are so popular with Australians

There is nothing new about Australians travelling to bali for their holidays, but what is new is their preference for Villas over hotels when it comes to their accommodation. This trend is on the increase and is increasing by about 5-10 % year on year.

The reasons for the rise in the popularity of villa accommodation, especially in very popular tourist hot spots like Seminyak are many but following are five of the main reasons why most Australian families, couples and groups gravitate towards villas.
# 1: Villas offer a level of privacy that your simply can’t get at hotels. Forget about sharing the pool with other people or having to queue up at the breakfast buffet bar with the rest of the herd. Villa living is all about maintaining a level of privacy where you are the centre of attention and not hordes of other guests.
# 2: If you are renting a 3 or 4 bedroom villa and you are coming with another family or with a group of friends, it tends to work out so much cheaper if you were to compare apples with apples. Most luxury villas in Seminyak are around the $500 per night mark and if you spread the cost over 5 people it works out to be $100 per nigh each. This is really good value and works out to be more economical than an equivalent hotel.
# 3: Nearly all villas come with their own staff of house keepers, chefs, butlers, security and even drivers. This means you do not have to lift a finger; everything is done for you. You certainly don’t get this level of service or attention in a hotel – unless you were paying some serious dollars.
# 4: Villas are mostly child friendly and come fully equipped with high chairs, cots, pool fences as well as nannies. This makes it a lot easier for parents who stress out about travelling with toddlers. Everything you could possible want for children are stock standard in most villas and if they don’t have it, then generally they can be organised for you before you arrive.
# 5: The area of Seminyak is the tourist hot spot in Bali. It’s known world wide for it’s fabulous bars, restaurants, cafes as well as day spas and shops. This is why so many holiday makers choose the areas of Seminyak, Petitenget, Oberoi all the way up to Legian as their preferred location. Staying a villa here means that you do not have to travel far for dinner or enjoying some of the nightlife and restaurants. Essentially, Seminyak is just the place to be and be seen. So if you have your villa here it is extremely handy.
So, make sure next time your thinking about a holiday in bali take a look at our range of Villas in Seminyak. There are so many to choose from and they all priced to appeal to all budgets and tastes. all we can say is that if you stay in a villa the chances of you ever staying in a hotel again are remote.
