Get The Rundown on Planning A Destination Wedding in Thailand

By  | 

Indian wedding market seems to be on a permanent boom since some time now. The west have rightfully coined the term ‘Big Fat Indian Wedding’ for it, which is self explanatory. We spend no stone unturned to make our weddings larger than life.  Girls dream since childhood of growing up and having a fairy tale wedding, where they feel like princess and the arrangements are befitting a royal family. Families are spending huge moolahs in a bid to outdo each other. With all that Indian venues are getting saturated and the need is of a venue which offers the ‘x’ factor to an Indian wedding. Hence, international destination weddings have come to play a huge role.


Thailand has all the elements needed to be that special destination. With closest proximity to Indian shores, the frequency of flights is excellent from most metros and the fare is often better than most Indian destinations like Kerala and Goa! The culture similarity, hospitality, value for money etc further ensures that Thailand emerges, as the best destination for Indian weddings abroad. Imagine having a fairy tale wedding on a sandy beach, with blue skies and turquoise water as backdrop. The guest list consists of those who matter and make a difference to you and your families. So you have a day, which would be just yours with a perfect setup, one can ever dream of!


Other terrific reasons are beautiful locations, world-class beach resorts, excellent venues, entertainment and decor options, which truly provides a reason for one to consider the amazing venues in Thailand. Having realised the importance of an Indian wedding, most hotels there have exclusive packages for Indians and are willing to bend backwards with flexible options. Also, there is another key factor, which is any guests delight! A Destination Wedding in Thailand has a little something for everyone…shopping, sight-seeing, water sports, restaurants and clubs, entertainment and dance shows and many more.

Most people have this myth that a Destination Wedding in Thailand would be more expensive and is only for affluent class. Our research says that a metro wedding in Delhi, Mumbai or Goa could cost much more, if not the same as a wedding in Thailand. The quality and the professionalism found in Thailand locales are abundant, which makes all wedding events a fabulous experience. One can also find multiple different kind of events to choose from. While Bangkok offers a classy city wedding with river as a backdrop, Pattaya, Hua Hin and Phuket offer amazing beach resorts! Chaing Mai can have a lovely mountain wedding, while exotic locales like Krabi and Koh Samui can provide a stunning beach venue for an intimate setup! This is where a wedding planner is needed!
