Our talented Florists in Bali will match the finest flowers with
extraordinary senses of styles. From the classic traditional
to the most contemporary, creating a uniquely personal and
sophisticated ambiance for your wedding or special event.

My approach is always the customer first! If a customer
leaves the design up to me, my house style tends towards
the Asian, Contemporary Romance, but each event and each
client's wishes are unique. If a client wants me to hang the
flowers upside down, I'll do it, and make sure that' it will look
stunning. I always maintain that what makes your best day,
is what you ultimately choose in "Color, Style, Arrangement
and Decor".

I will work pro actively with your selected venue, caterer and
photographer to make sure your overhead in coordinating
the details is kept comfortable for you.

I will provide you with an array of options together with
wedding catering in Bali and will guide you through a "best
ideas  list", based on the size of the venue of your event.

I am there for "You and You Alone", in every step of the way.

As a Floral and Party Designer I love to be involved in all
aspects of planning your wedding. I work closely with you to
ensure the wedding flowers and all other details are perfect
on the day.

"satisfy You the first time and You will come back to me the next time"

Contact Spectrum Bali once you've selected the date, time and place for your wedding and
reception. Christian will only accept One wedding on a given day, as we prefer quality above
quantity, so it is important and very helpful to contact us well in advance to begin planning. A
good rule of thumb is to contact us at least five months in advance of your Wedding Day. Also
let us know if you want a wedding on the beach or an exotic Balinese wedding.

It will be helpful if you know the colors and style of the gowns you and your bridesmaids will be
wearing. Pictures that depict what you have in mind are extremely helpful. Bring a photo of
your wedding dress and a sample of the fabric or lace if you have it, as well as swatches and
photos of the bridesmaids' dresses.

Look through bridal books and floral guides. Sketch ideas, cut out pictures or take photographs
of flowers you like and show them to Christian. Seeing your ideas and personal style will help
him to translate your concepts and special requests, into workable floral designs and flower
arrangements that are just right for you.

You can visit us as many times as you need to gather estimates, ideas and scheme ideas. We
will be able to give a rough estimate without a lengthy meeting and in most cases can do so by
upon filing out our consultation form. Our floral designers are trained and highly skilled floral
artists and their ideas have value - but you will never be asked to pay a consultation fee if you
want to discuss a florist's actual ideas for your wedding or party.

    White Wedding.

A white wedding is a term for a traditional formal or semi-formal wedding in British and
American, as well as Commonwealth, traditions. Brides in many other countries are adopting
this traditional white dress. This term refers to the white colour of the wedding dress, which
became popular in the Victorian era and came to symbolize purity of heart and the innocence
of childhood. Later attribution suggested that the colour white symbolized virginity.

This article discusses the rise of the conventions of a
"White Wedding" their perceived
symbolism, and their contemporary application. In Bali this is symbolized with the white Bali
Wedding Flags.

    History and Traditions.

The tradition of wearing white at weddings began due to the choice of color of the wedding
dress of Queen Victoria at her wedding to Prince Albert. Queen Victoria was not the first royal
bride to wear a white wedding gown, but the first of the modern era. White had been a
traditional color of royal mourning, and although not often utilized as such, white was not
considered a suitable choice for a royal wedding. Victoria's choice popularized the white gown
as no other had before her. Previously, brides wore their best clothes or the most expensive
new clothes they could afford. Gold or gold-threaded dresses became popular with royal
brides; the rank-and-file wore dresses that reflected their station. White was one of many
choices, pastel shades were also popular.

Until the mid-twentieth century, many brides in the United Kingdom did not wear a traditional
wedding dress, merely a specially bought dress that could later be worn as an evening. This
was also the case in pre-20th Century America where working and frontier brides often opted
for a formal look that was practical and could be used again on special occasions.

White weddings almost always take place in churches and people generally seek to be
married in the most prestigious or picturesque church they can find. This often leads to the
often bemoaned phenomenon of such churches attracting the unexpected attendance of
unmarried couples who are in the early stages of planning their wedding and wish to be
married there, but would not otherwise set foot in church. As a consequence, some churches
require that the couple either be parishioners or pledge to join and participate in the parish.

After World War I, as full-scale formal weddings began to be desired by the mothers of brides
who did not have a permanent social secretary, the position of the "wedding planner" who
could coordinate the printer, florist, caterer, seamstress, began to assume importance.
Bride's Magazine began to be published in 1934 as a newspaper advertising insert called So
You're Going to Get Married! in a column entitled To the Bride, and its rival Modern Bride began
publishing in 1949. Now a whole industry surrounds the provision of such weddings. The
groom may be a mere detail: the new editor of Modern Bride began her inaugural column,
without irony: "I really did have the wedding of my dreams, the wedding that had been floating
around my head for years before I met my husband."

Emily Post's Etiquette was first published in 1922, as a guide to the "new" people of the post-
war boom, who meant to get the unfamiliar details right, and the conservatively evolving nature
of a formal wedding can be traced in its various editions. A 4th edition of Peggy Post's Emily
Post's Wedding Etiquette: Cherished Traditions and Contemporary Ideas for a Joyous
Celebration is still in print, along with a wide range of wedding planners and guides to second
weddings bearing the Post name. A subtle shift in the requirements for a wedding can be
detected in the modern blurb for Emily Post's Weddings "creating a wedding experience that
demonstrates the bride and groom's commitment and uniqueness." "Uniqueness" is a
modern addition to a wedding's requirements. Judith Martin has published Miss Manners on
Weddings.

The full white wedding experience means that an organist, a choir, flower arrangements,
flowers for lapels and commemorative wedding leaflets with the Order of Service need to be
arranged and purchased. Also the hymns need to be selected and a reading from the Bible
chosen. (Note: A less religious or non denominational form uses well known classical and
popular music.)

    Attendees

Traditional weddings require, in addition to the bride and groom:

  • Best man - a close male friend or relative of the groom, given a place of honour.

  • Maid of honour - a close female friend or relative of the bride, given a place of honour. If
    she is married, she is instead called the "matron of honour."

  • Groomsmen - one or more male attendants who support the groom.

  • Bridesmaids - one or more female attendants who support the bride.

  • Flower girl - a young girl who scatters flowers in front of the bridal party.

  • Ring bearer - an attendant, often a young boy, who carries the wedding rings.

  • Ushers - helpers, usually men, who assist with the organization.

  • Junior Bridesmaids - young girls typically between the ages of 8 and 16 who is too old
    to be a flower girls, but the bride wants to be part of the wedding.

Typically, these positions are filled by close friends of the bride and groom; being asked to
serve in these capacities is seen as a great honour.

Wedding guests are generally sent invitations to which they are expected to reply. The guests
are generally invited to both the wedding and the wedding reception afterwards, although
sometimes reception places are limited. Often certain people are invited due to perceived
family obligations, as to not receive an invitation can be considered an insult.

    The Ceremony.

When the guests arrive for a wedding the ushers' duty is to hand out the correct mix of books,
flowers and leaflets and ensure the guests are seated in the correct places. Traditionally, the
side on which people sit depends on whether they are friends or family of the bride or of the
groom. The front rows are generally reserved for close family or friends, with the very first
seats reserved for the bridal party. However, in many ceremonies the bridal party will remain
standing at the altar during the ceremony along with the bride and groom.

The groom and his best man wait inside the church for the arrival of the bride and her
"entourage".
This entourage generally arrives in elegant cars or in horse-drawn coaches, specially hired for
the occasion. The bride's entourage normally consists of the bride, the bride's father and all
the various bridesmaids, maids of honour, flower girls and page boys that are intended to
attend her.
The following is a typical processional order:

  • The ushers and/or groomsmen escort the grandparents of the bride and groom to their
    seats.

  • The ushers and/or groomsmen escort the mother of the groom and mother of the bride
    to their seats.

  • The bridesmaids enter, escorted by the groomsmen.

  • The maid or matron of honor enters, either by herself or escorted by the best man.

  • The ringbearer enters.

  • The flower girl enters. (In some ceremonies, the ringbearer will accompany the flower
    girl.)

  • The bride then proceeds down the aisle, escorted by her father, to the accompaniment
    of music, and the ceremony starts.

After the wedding ceremony itself ends, the bride, groom, officiate, and two witnesses
generally go to sign the wedding register.  Without the signing of the register or the marriage
license no legally valid marriage exists.

Afterward, guests file out to throw flower petals, confetti, birdseed, or rice over the newly-
married couple for good luck. Finally, a photographic session ensues of the couple leaving the
church.

    The Reception.

After this the events shift to a reception at which the married couple, the couple's parents, the
best man and the wedding entourage greet each of the guests. At such events it is traditional
to eat and drink. The cutting of the wedding cake would also take place at the reception.

During the reception a number of wedding speeches are made and numerous toasts are
drunk. Any dancing is commonly started by the bride and groom, usually termed the "Bridal
Waltz", but dancing an actual waltz is comparatively rare - often the couple chooses their
favorite love ballad. An arranged dance between the bride and her father is also traditional.
Sometimes the groom will cut in halfway through the dance, symbolizing the bride leaving her
father and joining her new husband. Though not traditional, dances between the groom and his
mother are also becoming popular.

At some point the married couple will become the object of a shivaree, a good-natured hazing
of the newly-married couple. While this is most familiar in the form of tying tin cans to the
bumper of the couple's car, or spraying shaving cream on the windows, some of the pranks
can be far more malicious.

The final tradition is the newly married couple to set off for their honeymoon.

    Wedding Cake.

A wedding cake is the traditional cake served to the guests at a wedding breakfast, after a
wedding. It is usually a large cake, multi-layered or tiered, and heavily decorated with icing,
occasionally over a layer of marzipan, topped with a small statue of a bride and groom. Other
common motifs include doves, gold rings and horseshoes, the latter symbolizing good luck.
Achieving a dense, strong cake that can support the decorations while remaining edible can be
considered the epitome of the baker's art and skill.

Tradition generally requires that the first cut of the cake be performed by bride and groom
together, often with a ceremonial knife, or even a sword. An older, archaic tradition had the
bride serve all portions to the groom's family, as a symbolic transfer of her household labor
from her family to the groom's family.

Tradition may also dictate that the bride and groom feed the first bites of this cake to each
other. Again, this may symbolize the new family unit formed and the replacement of the old
parent-child union. It is also fairly popular for the bride and groom to shove the cake in each
other's faces, rather than eating it.

Other guests may then partake of the cake; portions may be taken home or shipped to people
who missed the festivities. (An old tradition held that if a bridesmaid slept with a piece of
wedding cake beneath her pillow she might dream of her future husband.)

A portion may be stored, and eaten by the couple at their first wedding anniversary, or at the
christening of their first child- The cake may be frozen for this purpose; formerly the top tier of
the cake might consist of fruitcake which could be stored for a great length of time.

    History.

The origins of the tradition of the wedding cake date back to medieval times, when each guest
at a wedding was supposed to bring a small cake, the cakes would be stacked on the table in
levels and layers (If the bride and groom were able to kiss over the top of the stack it was
considered good luck, if they fell in "Hey, dinner and a show!") these cake stacks would
eventually merge into one cake and evolve into the modern wedding cake.

Sweets are traditional at many celebrations for most if not all cultures worldwide. Ancient
Roman records detail sweets distributed at weddings. The book Folklore Myths and Legends of
Britain details the ancient Roman practice of dropping a wedding cake on the head of the bride.
Medieval and Renaissance resources also mention large cakes at weddings. Such cakes may
have been fruitcake.

A large cake can take a long time to make, and without modern refrigeration, a heavy fat and
sugar frosting may have prevented spoilage by limiting moisture exposure. Another possibility
is the use of sugar and fat required satisfying the need for conspicuous consumption for the
families involved in the wedding.

The tiered design of the wedding cake originates from the tiered spire of a well known
medieval church in London, England, called St Bride's.

Henry VIII of England enacted a law specifying the quantity of sugar a cake may have, possibly
to control or tax this prevailing convention.
