Destination Wedding: Saying I Dos in Bali

baliBali is an island of serenity and intensity. This island which is just 90 miles in length and 55 miles in width is home to about three million people. Visit Bali and you might be overwhelmed by all the scooters on the road. On the other side of the island though is spiritual calmness. The romance in this island is that which binds souls.

If you are planning to get married in Bali, you have to remember that it has to be a religious ceremony. It can either be Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, and Hindu. If you are not a Muslim, the ceremonies will be done first and a priest will sign a notice so you can apply for a marriage certificate from the Civil Registry. You will need the basic documents like passports, birth certificates, photos as a couple, and other paperwork.

While in Bali, you can also visit places of worships and palaces. Do not miss the Tanah Lot and the Ulu Danu. The first one is located on an small island while the other is near a lake with a volcanoe as its backdrop. There is also the Sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud where monkeys (which can steal your glasses and other stuff) roam free.

Newly weds who are looking to purchase furniture for their new home should bring an extra luggage. You can get a lot of items from art works, statues, masks, and picture frames. You can also get items made in stones, gold, or silver. The choices are endless and it will all depend on your style and likings.

The artistry of the Balinese people is also reflected on their dances and music. The costumes are very colorful while the movements are quite mystical. The women make most of their eyes and hands while their male counterparts don masks as they combine poetic movements to express their stories.

Couples should also go for a massage in a local Bali spa. The spas in this corner of the globe is among the best in the world.
