Weddings with Avavi Bali | Q&A with Elisabeth Herbert, Owner

Who are Avavi Bali Weddings and how did you start?

 We first started in 2009 from a villa rental agency. Our motto and agency philosophy was to provide an excellent service with a fast response to clients. The business has been family owned and managed ever since. I realised that the very same work ethic used in our villa agency could easily be transferred to the wedding planning industry. As we had such comprehensive knowledge of the beautiful villa locations throughout Bali, the two businesses became the perfect match, and Avavi Bali was born.

 I am also a founding member and Vice-Secretary (Director) of the Bali Wedding Association, which helps to make sure I am connected to all the best vendors in Bali, and that I am fully apprised of all the legalities of performing weddings in Bali.

 We are incredibly proud to have served people from all around the globe, and we continually endeavour to provide the best possible service to all our clients. Not only are we always aspiring to maintain our first-class customer service, but we are continuously looking to bring new ideas to our customers to make their perfectly tailored special day unforgettable.

What is the best time of year to get married in Bali?

 Generally, it is better to have your wedding during Bali’s dry season between April and September. We suggest avoiding having your wedding during December, January and February, as it is the height of the rainy season. Of course, if you do plan to have a wedding during the wet season, you should always have a plan B to make sure the weather doesn’t hamper your perfect day.

 What makes Bali such a popular wedding destination?

 Although not a big island, Bali offers all you could imagine for your dream wedding. You will be amazed by the endless settings in which to take beautiful sunset photos which be treasured lifetime memories. There are many incredible private villas Avavi can offer to its clients, which are one of our most popular choices of wedding style.

 Villa weddings are so popular due to the privacy offered, as only the couple and their guests are at the venue. The locations available with private villa weddings afford some of the most stunning views imaginable, and each of our wedding venues can be decorated to your personal dream wedding theme, so the possibilities are endless. Bali has everything you could dream of in a wedding – the ocean, the rice paddies, the forest. Each one romantic, beautiful and tranquil. Countless possibilities await you!

 What size weddings do you cater for? Does this change for some settings?

We can cater for weddings from 2 people, all the way to 500 people. Capacity does change for some settings, but we will always make sure that any changes won’t lose the theme of your wedding. After all, the wedding is all about what you desire for your dream, and we help you make it happen!

Can you also arrange honeymoons?

Yes! There are so many beautiful spots in Bali for honeymooners to choose from, making Bali an even more perfect place to get married. There is an abundance of natural beauty to enjoy in Bali, but also incredible culture and attractions to explore. Alongside the paradise that Bali offers, Avavi Bali can make special arrangements to heighten your experience, including any tours the couple may wish to experience.

 What is the most romantic wedding you’ve arranged?

 The most romantic wedding we have arranged so far was the wedding of a couple called Kenny and Sylvia. The bride was so surprised and full of emotion when the groom began playing the saxophone for her. She couldn’t stop looking at her husband with tears of joy in her eyes. The wedding was so intimate and wonderful, and the setting was truly amazing.
