HOW TO DO THE BEST FIJIAN WEDDING

Posted: Jun 27 2017

Picture this; you wake up on the morning of your wedding to a perfect blue sky, calm turquoise waters and a fruit platter with a freshly opened coconut. You spend the day in a slower island pace enjoying dips between the pool and the ocean. You slip into your island luxe gown and adorn your soles with barefoot sandals for your beach ceremony. You fix some flowers in your hair and float down to the ceremony to meet your lover with not a glimmer of stress on the horizon. You get married under an arbour of hibiscus flowers and frangipanis. You feast on a seafood banquet in front of the most stunning amber sunset and dance the night away to a band of local guitarists under a palm tree, starry sky.

Sounds like a dream doesn’t it? We have been lucky enough to experience the beauty of a Fijian wedding just like this (thanks Alicia & Matty for your wedding at Muskat Cove 2015!) We caught up with Leanne, from Bula Bride to bring you the best tips on how to create your dream Fijian wedding in the most romantic and organised way.

WHAT IS BULA BRIDE AND HOW CAN IT HELP ME WITH MY DREAM FIJIAN WEDDING?

Bula Bride is a Fiji Destination Wedding Blog, to help inform and inspire brides and grooms in their planning – beyond the package.

Started in May 2013, Bula Bride aims to bring you real Fiji weddings, ideas and inspiration, planning tips and resources, exclusive news and specials, sharing of personal experiences from brides and grooms and personal loves.

Bula Bride’s Directory helps you find and connect with talented vendors & suppliers within the destination wedding industry, both in Fiji as well as Australia and New Zealand.

HOW LONG HAS BULA BRIDE BEEN RUNNING AND WHY WAS IT CREATED?

We are not quite 4 years old yet but we are the original Fiji wedding blog & directory. We were the first wedding blog specifically dedicated to Fiji weddings and the Fiji destination wedding industry. Bula Bride was born from the original owners experience that it was really difficult to find information and inspiration when planning a Fiji wedding, so the idea was to pull it into one central place – let you know where to go for suppliers and see other Brides real Fiji weddings. 

Within it’s first year Bula Bride rapid growth of readers from all corners of the globe (from bride-to-be’s, past bride and grooms, bridesmaids and industry vendors), establishing Bula Bride as a valuable resource in planning a Fiji destination wedding.

DO YOU TRAVEL TO FIJI AND HAVE CLOSE CONNECTIONS WITH WEDDING VENDORS AND SUPPLIERS?
I’ve spent 4 years living in Fiji until recently, and now split my time between New Zealand and Fiji. Fiji is now the place I consider my real home, the place I’d rather be then anywhere.
Over that time, through my other business (also in the wedding industry) I’ve made many connections with other Vendors and Suppliers. I love establishing contacts with other creative people such as photographers and artists, I have a lot of friends in the tourism and resort industries and I have a team of local staff that all have extensive Fijian networks. Everyone’s a friend!

 

CAN YOU HELP PLAN A WEDDING FROM START TO FINISH? 
Bula Bride is not an actual wedding planner but yes we can help. To start with, I know a number of dedicated and professional wedding planners that have assisted many brides with their dream weddings. I think there is a lot of value in using a seasoned expert.
If you’d rather do it yourself, as many brides choose to, then Bula Bride will be an invaluable resource. Our Vendor Directory has a range of suppliers you can get in contact with and all of them are know for providing quality services to brides. Additionally follow our blog posts to see what resources and inspiration other brides used for their wedding to help you plan your own. 

 

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
Other amazing business people inspire me. People with enthusiasm inspire me. Giving people consistent work and watching them flourish inspires me. And showing my daughters girls can actually run the world inspires me the most.
