Does your dream wedding consist of sandy beaches, lush jungles, hidden caves, dramatic clifftops and everything in between?
While each city provides ample options in the form of luxurious hotels for wedding ceremonies, the charm of a travel-destination wedding like on the tropical island of Bali is still unchallenged.
No but seriously, we’ve heard of unusual wedding venues like getting married right in Taco Bell in Las Vegas (yep! If you don’t believe it, just Google it!) but when you’re in Bali my friend, things take an even hotter turn (so hot that you might only need a bikini!).
While you might be busy with your guest list, count me in! I’M READY (and also not invited, I guess); we’re offering you some help with the wedding venue!
But come on, if wedding venues in Bali look this good, we don’t even want to mention about the pre-wedding photoshoot and honeymoon locations 😉
9 Dreamy beachfront wedding villas in Bali with private pool and at least 5 bedrooms for your wedding getaway!

20. “When in Rome…” – Tie the knot like a local at Kamandalu Resort
In Bali, manifestations of spirituality and devotion are everywhere and rare is the visitor who doesn’t fall head over heels in love with the vibrant local culture.
The delicate daily offerings made out of palm leaves and flower petals not to mention the majestic cliffside temples have an undeniable romance to them.
Understandably, it is not possible for visitors to marry according to an actual Balinese ceremony – as this is a privilege reserved for the locals who are carrying on the centuries old traditions of their ancestors.

But this doesn’t mean you can’t include some of the magic and beauty of local customs into your own special day.
Kamandalu Resort helps you capture the essence of local Balinese customs and inject some of their beauty into your wedding day.

Kamandulu offers couples the option of a “Balinese Royal Wedding” where the happy couple is decked out in full Balinese wedding garb.
