Bali Villa VS Resort Wedding

Choosing ‘the’ venue for a destination wedding is not always an easy task. With so many beautiful locations and venue options we thought we would highlight some of the differences between having a wedding in a villa compared to a resort. 

Resort weddings usually come with a wedding planner and set packages. This often limits and sometimes eliminates the couple’s choice in external wedding suppliers but also saves time if they have no preferences. Having a resort wedding provides your guests with the option to stay in the same location, often at a discounted group rate with greater amenities like restaurants, bars and shops. The resort wedding packages are generally cheaper than renting a private villa with set décor options and usually less room to customise your idea of the perfect day.   

The most attractive aspect of getting married in a villa is privacy. Bali offers many options that are suitable and having the whole venue dedicated to your wedding and guests means that you won’t be sharing your special day with onlookers and strangers walking by. Bali wedding villas are generally located in picturesque rural areas and come fully staffed with butlers and private chefs. Most wedding villas require a 3-5 night minimum stay depending on the time of year and will add on an additional Banjar fee (balinese village community) for event hire. There is a greater sense of luxury in hiring a private villa, giving the couple freedom to customise their wedding catering options and hire their chosen wedding suppliers. 

At the end of the day it all comes down to personal preference and what is important to the couple and their families. We recommend reading reviews on your chosen venue and also locking in your date as early as possible to avoid missing out.
