There are truly spectacular beaches throughout Bali that are both secluded and private, thus perfect for a beach wedding concept. Beaches in Bali come in two variants – white sand and black sand; the atmosphere, the sounds and sights, are quite similar in any Bali beach. You should make use of the beach’s natural features as much as possible to create a picturesque wedding scene.
