Thailand weddings have grown in popularity in recent years due to the combination of a beautiful location and affordability. There are a variety of locations where destination weddings are held regularly and many more where weddings could be planned. From remote islands to eco-lodges, a wedding in Thailand has many possibilities. For instance, if you’ve always dreamed of a beach wedding, Thailand could be the perfect location.
For many couples, a Phuket wedding is a popular choice. This large island has an international airport and would be easily accessible for your guests, whether they are flying directly to Phuket or making a connection in Bangkok. Affordable flights within Thailand would make exploration a possibility for those who would like to visit other areas of the country, such as Chiang Mai, located in the northern hills and home to stunning attractions such as Wat Doi Suthep. And possibly the best part of planning a Thailand beach wedding is that you are already in the perfect location for your honeymoon.
Many Thailand weddings include options for adding on a honeymoon as part of the overall cost. This could wind up in significant savings for the couple, as well as a relaxed, romantic honeymoon. One of the challenges of planning a wedding in Thailand is the same challenge faced by anyone planning a destination wedding: Not residing in Thailand and being unfamiliar with local customs may present some obstacles during the planning process, but fortunately there are wedding professionals who can ease this problem, ensuring that you can have the wedding of your dreams here even if you've never before traveled to Thailand
A Phuket wedding will provide endless entertainment for your guests both before and after the wedding. Known for scuba diving and snorkeling, the island is a great place to hire a boat and sail for the afternoon, and scenic destinations such as Koh Phi Phi and Patong Beach are easily accessible. Local guides will know the best areas to stop for a bit of snorkeling. For the less adventurous guests, sea caves, interesting rock formations, and the crystal-clear water will all be seen during a chartered cruise. Thailand weddings are often about more than the day itself, as your wedding celebration could be extended over a week or longer as your family and friends remain to celebrate with you.
A wedding in Thailand could also take place at one of the new, world-class luxury properties across the country. Spa treatments will be a great way to relax before your big day and the fresh cuisine will be a perfect accompaniment to your special day. Eco lodges in Thailand are also beginning to offer weddings, so for those who would like to marry in Thailand but avoid the more crowded areas, this is a possibility as well. To make your Phuket wedding truly memorable, plan around the seasons and send out your invitations far in advance. The majesty of the landscape of Thailand would provide a wonderful beginning to a marriage.
