10 Beautiful Small Chapels for Your Engagement Party in Bali
When someone says yes to a proposal, that is a valid reason for the celebration. In fact, the engagement party is really common in Bali. People celebrate their engagement in many different ways, but Bali offers something that you cannot find anywhere else. For one, it is almost guaranteed that all venues in Bali would have a wonderful view, both of the sea and the jungle.
However, it is not uncommon that the couple wants something more than that. Many require that their engagement is held in a chapel. Needless to say, the chapel must be unique in terms of architecture and have a great view of the surrounding. Luckily, Bali has many of them. Each one of them is uniquely designed for lovely occasions like engagement or wedding. Here are some of them.
