Wedding in Bali is a sacred ritual and I think in every country that Wedding is the most happiest moment not only for the couple but for the whole family. In Bali when Balinese people got married all our family will come and help the ritual, Bali is an island that famous for it culture and ritual are reflecting on their Wedding ceremony.
In Bali there are a lot of thing that we need to consider before we arrange the Wedding, Balinese people will need to choose “The right day” based on Bali calendar to arrange the ceremony, they also will need to prepare the offering that it called “Banten” in Bali. Nearly two weeks before the actual ceremony held, the family will come to the couple house to help to decor the house (almost all Balinese family will celebrate their wedding at the Groom house) and preparing the offering.
