What is the climate like in Bali and what should couples consider when getting married in Bali?
Bali has a warm, tropical climate due to its close proximity to the equator. As a result, Bali has an average year-round temperature of about 26-28 °C that makes water temperatures always pleasant for water activities.Best time to travel to Bali is during the dry season, from April to October, when the climate is relatively dry and less humid.
When planning for a destination wedding in Bali, we recommend brides to avoid wearing heavily layered gowns, and instead to consider light-weight and airy fabrics such as silhouette or chiffon that will help keep you cool during the day and sway with the ocean breeze. Lightweight fabrics like chiffon do not wrinkle easily and are easy to steam as well.
What sort of Couples would love Bali for their destination wedding?
Whether you are looking to have a small bohemian-style wedding, an elopement or an opulent ceremony and reception, Bali is the perfect destination for you. While the island offers many smaller, more casual accommodations with low-key vibes, it also has some of the best and finest hotels and professional wedding vendors that will go out of their way to tailor any personalised wedding and honeymoon for you.
