Wilis and Etika's 'Chinoiserie Infused with Rococo' Bali Wedding

01

Wilis and Etika tied the knot on a floating platform over the pool at Banyan Tree Ungasan, Bali, looking out onto the gleaming Indian Ocean and captured by Axioo. It was just the beginning of what was to be a stunning celebration as the bride and Dina of Rosebarrel Décor’s vision of blue-and-white porcelain chinoiserie infused with ornate rococo elements elevated their evening to what can only be described as sensational.

How did you meet?
“We were introduced by common friends in January 2013” ~ Wilis & Etika

What was the theme of your wedding?
“The wedding theme was what my wedding decorator called Chinoiserie infused with Rococo and we used royal blue and white with a hint of red.” ~ Etika

How did you decorate your venues? Did you undertake any DIY projects?
“No, I did not have any time for DIY projects but I was introduced to the most amazing wedding decorator by Banyan Tree Ungasan. Dina from Rosebarrel Décor understood what I wanted just by looking at the pictures that I sent to her from Pinterest. She was also very helpful in providing everything I wanted without exceeding my budget.” ~ Etika

What sort of wedding favors did you opt for, and why?
“We gave out leather passport holders with our initials embossed. We wanted to give our guests something personalized that they would still find useful. We embossed our initials on the inside of the holder instead of the cover.” ~ Etika

Do you have any interesting to share about the big day itself?
“We are not dancers, but my husband insisted on having a choreographed first dance. Although it looked very romantic to have such a beautiful first dance above the pool, under the starry sky, with fireworks and an ocean view, we were actually counting our steps and reminding each other of the next dance move. It was far from romantic for the two of us. We were feeling quite pressured. I would advise future grooms and brides to-be to just relax and enjoy their dance. A wedding is for a couple; the guests are just there to witness their love. It is not a performance to please guests.” ~ Etika

Do you have any tips or advice for other brides and grooms to-be?
“Find an unexpected venue that is not too hyped. Hotels’ rent and food are usually overpriced. Instead, you should splurge your money on the decoration. It is what sets the mood.” ~ Etika

 

Congratulations on your marriage, Wilis and Etika! May it be every bit as beautiful as your wedding!
