It’s always difficult to decide on what to wear to weddings, but even harder when trying to decide on what to wear to a wedding in tropical island like Bali. Attending a wedding in Bali calls for a stylish yet comfortable outfit that reflects the coastal and relaxed atmosphere of the area.

As an experienced Bali wedding photographer, I have a keen eye for fashion that complements the stunning backdrop of the venue in Bali and translates well into beautiful photos. Here are some tips of what to wear to wedding in Bali as a guests to ensure that your outfit looks gorgeous in the wedding album and leaves a lasting impression on the bride, groom, and other guests:

Embrace the tropical vibe by opting for bright and vibrant colors. Consider wearing shades of coral, turquoise, tropical prints, or floral patterns. Avoid wearing white, as it’s typically reserved for the bride.

Choose Lightweight Elegant Clothing

For women, options include flowy maxi dresses, sundresses, or chic jumpsuits in tropical prints or solid colors. Off-the-shoulder styles, halter necklines, or dresses with breathable fabrics and cutouts can be both fashionable and comfortable. Sandals, wedges, or dressy flats are suitable footwear choices for a beach or tropical wedding. Men can opt for lightweight suits in light colors such as beige, light grey, or pastel shades. Alternatively, dress shirts paired with dress pants or linen trousers can create a stylish and relaxed look. Loafers, boat shoes, or dressy sandals are suitable footwear options.

Accesorize! Hat, sunglasses, hand fan is important!

Hair and Makeup

Opt for hairstyles and makeup looks that can withstand the humidity of the tropical climate. Beachy waves, pony tails, braided styles, or updos can be both practical and elegant. Keep makeup light and natural to avoid melting or smudging.

Sun Protection: Since Bali is sunny and tropical, don’t forget to protect yourself from the sun. Wear sunscreen, a wide-brimmed hat, and bring a lightweight cover-up or shawl for added sun protection during outdoor ceremonies.

Dress to Embrace Your Own Style and Relax!
