Planning a Bali Wedding: Everything You Need to Know

Bali is a beautiful tropical paradise that is fast becoming a popular destination for weddings. The island’s breathtaking scenery, warm weather, and vibrant culture make it the perfect place to tie the knot. There are a range of Bali wedding packages that offer everything you need to make your special day unforgettable. In this article, we’ll explore a few important aspects you should consider when planning a wedding in Bali.

Selecting a Bali wedding venue

Most people’s first consideration for their wedding is location and venue. From the elegant clifftops of an Uluwatu wedding to a tropical wonderland in Ubud, you’ll want to ensure the venue you pick offers everything you’ve dreamed of and more. The easiest way to make this decision is to consider the setting — do you want to wed as you look out across the rolling waves of the shoreline, atop a clifftop, within luscious gardens, surrounded by rice fields, in the hilltops with waterfalls running nearby? Once you know the style you desire for your wedding day, choosing your wedding venue will come easy.

Choosing a Bali wedding package

Bali is home to some of the most beautiful wedding venues in the world, and of course, this will tie into which wedding package you choose. From beachside resorts to lush green gardens, there is something to suit every taste and budget. Bringing your dream wedding to life can be made increasingly easy by choosing a wedding package that meets your desires and requirements. 

However, planning a Bali wedding can be overwhelming, especially if you’re not familiar with the local customs, venues, and vendors. Choosing the right Bali wedding package can simplify the process and help you create the wedding of your dreams.

The Ungasan Clifftop Resort offers an intricately crafted collection of wedding packages that make your special day absolutely unforgettable.

Perched on the limestone cliffs of Uluwatu and overlooking the blue of the Indian Ocean, The Ungasan is a truly breathtaking location for your wedding in Bali. Offering three wedding packages to suit a range of requirements, each caters for both small and medium sized wedding parties.

The Everlasting Love Wedding

As a standard, all of The Ungasan’s wedding packages include a personal butler service, luxury airport transfers, an English-speaking celebrant, a two hour treatment for the bridal couple at Vela Spa, priority access to Sundays Beach Club and a commemorative wedding certificate.

Bali Package Inclusions

Wedding packages can vary widely in terms of what’s included, so it’s important to carefully review the details of each option you’re considering. Some packages may only include basic necessities like ceremony and reception venue rental, while others may include catering, photography, flowers, transportation, and more, as well as being able to organise tours and other activities in Uluwatu. Determine what’s most important to you and look for packages that meet those needs.

Many packages will offer add-ons that can elevate and add something special to a destination wedding. The Ungasan offers an after-party at Sundays Beach Club, a pre-wedding dinner, additional nights and even a fireworks display to choose from to truly add sparkle to your day.

Finding a Bali wedding planner

When finding a wedding planner in Bali, research is key. You want to ensure you find out about the reputation of the wedding planner and vendors associated with the package you’re considering. Read reviews, ask for references and recommendations, and ensure that you feel confident in the team’s ability to execute your vision for your wedding day.

The Ungasan understands the nuanced details and specific requirements that each individual has for their wedding, no matter how small. Whether you have a customised design request or style ideas in mind, no detail or customisation is too much for the dedicated team to execute.


An important step when planning your destination wedding and selecting a Bali wedding package is determining your budget. Bali offers a range of curated packages, from basic to luxurious with various customizations and tailored choices available. It’s important to make a selection that fits within your budget, but also meets your expectations. Consider what’s important to you, whether it’s the venue, catering, or decorations, and allocate your budget accordingly.

The Ungasan offers three wedding packages with tiered pricing that ranges from IDR 243,000,000 to IDR 609,000,000, plus any additional extras.

Legal Requirements

Before choosing a Bali wedding package, check for legal requirements. If you’re planning a legal wedding in Bali, there are certain documents you’ll need to prepare, such as a valid passport, birth certificate, and certificate of no impediment to marriage. Ensure that you have all the necessary documents and that your wedding package includes legal assistance.

An experienced wedding planner can help to ensure that all the necessary legal requirements are met. They can help you prepare the required documents, file the notice of intention to marry, and coordinate with the local Civil Registry Office, so you don’t need to worry about it affecting your special day. 

The excellent wedding planning team at The Ungasan have hospitality and event planning running through their veins. Event Manager, Sasha Newbold, will work with you to not only craft the most exceptional wedding that meets all of your expectations and requirements, but also ensure you have zero stress when it comes to the legalities of getting married in Bali.

Planning a wedding in Bali can be an exciting and rewarding experience. From the stunning scenery to the warm hospitality of the locals, Bali offers everything you need to create your dream wedding. However, to ensure a successful and stress-free event, it’s important to consider all the necessary factors such as the various Bali wedding packages available, your budget, package inclusions, and legal requirements. Working with a wedding planner or coordinator can also help ensure that all the details are taken care of and your special day runs smoothly. With careful planning, attention to detail, and the right support, your Bali wedding can be an unforgettable celebration of your love and commitment, with everything else taken care of.
