Wedding venues dot the island, and the options can always make you overwhelmed. You need to narrow them down and choose some wedding venues in Bali that suit you. First, you need to limit the places based on your budget because this will cut so many options. Second, you can choose your backdrop. Does a beach wedding look more idyllic for you? Or a clifftop wedding? Or perhaps a rainforest wedding? Third, to make everything efficient, consider some venues with or close to the resort as you might come to Bali with your family and friends from outside Indonesia.

Decide if it is going to be non-legal or legal wedding. Getting married in Bali legally will need a longer preparation

Most of the wedding packages in Bali offer non-legal weddings. However, some venues offer legal wedding packages. A legal wedding means your the wedding registry and the religious ministry in Indonesia acknowledge your wedding. You need to submit some documents to the Australian Embassy (or other countries) months before tying the knot. In other words, tying the knot in Bali legally will need a longer and more detailed preparation.
