Looking for somewhere different to get married, somewhere with fabulous beaches, tropical climate and palm trees. You might be thinking of a destination wedding in Cyprus, the Greek Islands or Italy but if you're looking for something a bit more adventurous with lots of culture, take a look at Thailand
Thailand is such a wonderful destination with luxurious temples around every corner, sun soaked beaches, lively cities and interesting small villages. It's a place where memories are made that will last a lifetime.
There are several resorts where weddings can be arranged with western style weddings ceremonies exchanging vows and rings in luxury hotel settings or on the beach. Alternatively you can go for a Buddhist Temple wedding experience involving chanting monks, blessings and candle lighting.
These are just a few of the Thai resorts where hotels offer wedding packages
- Khao Lak
- Koh Phangam
- Koh Phi Phi
- Koh Samui
It's advisable to get a reputable company to handle the arrangements for you as not only is the language very different, the writing is very different also. For example the word wedding in Thai looks like this งานแต่งงาน , so it could get confusing
When the wedding is over and all your paperwork is in order you can if you wish take off for a romantic honeymoon for just the two of you on one of the small Thai Islands. I can personally recommend Koh Kood Island where I spent a few days this year, but definitely not for people looking for nightlife, it's very low key and ideal for just relaxing in the sunshine on one of the glorious beaches.
But if your not wanting to relax there are Thai islands with lots going on and Bangkok is oozing with magnificent temples or you can hop and off the local ferries visiting different villages with their colorful local markets.
Thailand is known as the land of a thousand smiles and this shot taken in the local market certainly depicts this.
If you're looking for a wedding with a difference and a holiday of a lifetime Thailand will definitely fit the bill.
