Bali Bride Inspiration - 2010

Lately, I've had the pleasure of working with a wonderful bride in California who is planning an intimate Bali wedding after my own heart. I've been coordinating with some of the best vendors on the island, who I adore, to bring to life the brides vision. To help plan destination weddings, the language and cultural expectations for weddings can be very different, so no matter the location, it makes it much easier if you provide images of exactly what you want to each of your vendors. The below inspiration board is helping all of our Balinese vendors understand the vision for our brides big day.

In working on the timeline for this event it was critical to plan around the sunset time and understand how quickly we will loose the natural light. In Bali once the sun sets it gets dark almost immediately, while in other destinations the sun may set, but the sky remains light for a significant amount of time. With this in mind, most of the important events will be planned prior to, during, or immediately after sunset, such as cake cutting and any special dances. But once it gets dark there will be a traditional 20 member Balinese Gamelan orchestra and dance performance to get the party going. So if you are planning your own destination wedding, make sure to take into account not only the sunset time, but how fast you lose light.
