The allure of the island :

  • Direct flight from Kuala Lumpur.
  • A myriad of resorts to choose from.
  • Various price points when it comes to wedding packages.
  • The experience and expertise of planning destination weddings for couples from afar.
  • The eagerness of the resorts to host such weddings.
  • The hospitality of the Thai people.
  • Thai cuisine.
  • Opportunity to have a honeymoon thereafter for the couple, and a holiday for their guests.

Contemplate the following during the wedding planning process :

  • Time of year of your wedding and the corresponding weather conditions in Samui.
  • The size of your guest list versus the capacities of the resorts you have shortlisted.
  • Schedule pre and/or post wedding activities for your guests.
  • Organise a photoshoot at the various scenic locations on the island perhaps.
  • Fly in for a weekend during the planning period to visit potential venues and meet with some vendors whom you may consider hiring.
