Seaside Weddings In Thailand

Jul 01, 2020

The call of the sea, indeed, the call of the sea in Thailand, where many a resort fronting the sea offer spectacular locations for weddings. Be it a garden wedding with the panorama of the sea as a backdrop, one by the pool with an elevated view or vows right on the beach, the myriad of options act as catalysts, inspiring many soon-to-be-wed couples to contemplate a destination wedding in the land of smiles.

Some advice when planning for a destination wedding in neighbouring Thailand :

  • Start early and plan ahead; check on the travel protocols of the ‘new norm’ and the necessary lead time required.
  • Connect with the resorts that have caught your eye and look into their respective SOPs for weddings as well as their offerings, in particular if there are special wedding promotions to be had.
  • Perhaps hire a wedding planner to help you navigate the planning process, and collaborate with wedding vendors who are enthusiastic about destination weddings in a foreign land.

A few more tips :

  • Check on potential airlines to fly with, the availability of routes and frequency as well as their rates.
  • Look out for discounted room rates that may be on offer and determine their validity period.
