planning a destination wedding in thailand
Destination weddings are getting more and more popular, and over the last 5 years, we’ve also witnessed a big boom of full-scale weddings celebrated in Thailand. Planning a destination wedding might seem challenging if you don’t know where to start, so here are a few tips to make it easier for you from The Wedding Bliss Thailand.
Start in advance! The best time to start planning your dream wedding would be 12-8 month before your wedding date. Firstly because the best venues and best wedding professionals always get booked far in advance, so if you start later, you might find yourself choices limited. Get a professional help. Reach out to the wedding planners based in the area that you’re aiming for. With their experience and ability to easily get around there, it’s going to be an invaluable help. Believe it or not, but there’s a lot of backstage in wedding planning, and especially many hidden pitfalls in pulling it through abroad, if you don’t know the area and local market well enough. → See more of this mesmerizing Thai wedding here
Choose a venue first. Your venue is the most important element of your wedding day, and it sets the mood to the overall celebration. Whether you want a cliff with an ocean view, a beachfront bungalow or a tropical forest, all of that can be found if you search well (again, a wedding planner’s help is invaluable here!) Make sure the place is in tune with your wedding theme/idea! Trying to create an English garden themed reception among the palm trees in Bora-Bora can be of course possible, but it will eat up a lot of resources. Think it through before signing up for a certain location. Same goes for the decoration elements, Globalization allows us to get almost anything we want anywhere and anytime nowadays, but everything has a price. So, if you want peonies for your January wedding in Thailand, prepare for high costs. → See more of this memorizing Thai wedding here
Plan activities outside of the wedding day before you arrive! Destination weddings are a great chance to get together with your family and friends, especially those who live in different parts of the world. Take advantage of it and use the time wisely! If you’re already together in Thailand, why not go for a pre-wedding boat-trip? Or how about hangover brunch for a post-wedding morning? There are so many magical things to do in Thailand → See more of this memorizing Thai wedding here
A photographer is the greatest wedding investment. It is always worth the investment to fly your preferred photographer in from other country if you feel like local options are not living up to your expectations. However, before signing up a photography contract, also make sure that you easily get along with him/her/them, and your wedding day shooting is going to be fun and easy for everyone. A meet and greet is a must for a destination wedding, since they will be spending so much time with you and your family. → See more of this memorizing Thai wedding here
