After almost canceling her wedding plans to get married in Bali due to Mount Agung’s volcanic eruptions that occurred at the end of last year, China-based bride Fiona Ling just finished paying the last deposit for her upcoming Bali wedding, an event that she took twenty-two months preparing for.

“When news broke, pretty much my whole family told me to cancel everything,” said Ling. “But it’s been my dream to have a beach wedding in Bali, and I wasn’t going to let months of vendor research, calling, emails go to waste.”

After putting her wedding planning on hold for a couple of weeks, Ling finally decided to resume her original plans. “We were suddenly able to get really good deals with vendors and my family was very happy about that,” said Ling. “It wasn’t just discounts in prices but a lot of the Bali vendors were very accommodating and threw in extra add-on’s or offered to make photography hours longer.”

When news broke that Mount Agung, which hadn’t erupted since 1963, spewed 2,000m of volcanic ash into the sky, many vendors received calls of concerns and brides who wanted to cancel.
