Married in Thailand
Couples looking to get married have always dreamed of the perfect wedding day. For some that just means a happy day with friends and family, while for other it means that everything must be just so. Whether one feels more like the former or more like the latter, or somewhere in between, holding a wedding in Thailand is a great way to guarantee an unforgettable ceremony.
Getting married in Thailand presents couples with a wide variety of venues and indeed regions of the country in which to have their ceremony. The most popular option is to get married in the south, on one of Thailand’s famous beaches or islands. Private villas in places like Phuket or Koh Samui are the perfect venue and come with teams of staff very experienced in handling weddings that can provide all the services and expertise the couple would need.
Those wanting something more urban could pick from one of the many luxury hotels in Bangkok that put on their wedding; some of the opulent hotels down by the river offer an exclusive and unforgettable spot for a reception. For others, the mountains and natural beauty of the north of the country around Chiang Mai are the perfect location for a low-key ceremony. However, the beach remains the most popular choice for a memorable ceremony and a private villa is therefore the perfect setting.
Whichever part of the country one holds their wedding in, getting professional and high quality assistance is now relatively easy. Any of the nicer hotels will usually offer packages and their own planner, or can at the very least make a local recommendation. For a more bespoke experience, the planners and assistants attached to private villa companies can help with everything from the flowers and photographers to arranging a religious official to preside over the ceremony. Whether one would prefer a traditional priest to officiate or want to go more local with some chanting Buddhist monks, a professional planner can help arrange it.
An attractive aspect of getting married in Thailand is that the country generally offers great value for the price paid. Although things might not be as inexpensive now as they were 10 or 20 years ago, things are still quite a bit cheaper than they would be in Europe, North America or other parts of Asia. That said, everything is still high-quality and very much on the up-and-up. The professional planners are local experts and the couple doesn’t have to worry about dodgy operators not fulfilling their obligations. Instead, they can just relax and enjoy their special day.
Getting married in Thailand is a great way to make an already special day even more unforgettable. The country is full of attractive and diverse locations, offers professional and high quality services and is fantastic value for money; the perfect place to start any happily ever after.
