Wedding Destinations in Thailand

For some people, gorgeous beaches and exotic animals are what Thailand is all about. But if you'll find there is much more to this amazing country than elephants and azure seas. Do some research when you are planning your wedding in Thailand and see which city would be best. If you'll be honeymooning in Thailand after the wedding, you'll get a chance to explore the country, so don't choose a particular place for the ceremony just because you've always wanted to visit it. Make your choice based on the atmosphere you want for your actual wedding

These days, you have a lot of options for wedding venues in Thailand, but don't forget that the legal side of things must be handled through your embassy. This means you might have to show up in a major city such as Bangkok before the ceremony, to deal with the paperwork. A wedding planner will be able to help you take care of the legal and practical issues in advance, so that the wedding itself will be the lovely occasion you've always dreamed of.


What could be more exciting than a wedding in Bangkok? There are many gorgeous places for a special wedding in this city, with its modern shopping centers that rub shoulders with traditional Thai architecture. In Bangkok there are quite a few luxury hotels, as well as travel agents who will be happy to make all the arrangements for your dream honeymoon.

Chiang Mai

You might prefer the jungles and mountains of northern Thailand if a sunset wedding on the beach is not your romantic fantasy. In Chiang Mai you'll be surrounded by the magical hills and breathtaking views that you've only seen in travel photos until now. Try doing some trekking in the north of Thailand and visit local villages that show no signs of being influenced by western culture.

Chiang Rai

The city of Chiang Rai is another northern Thailand wedding option. Here there are still places where you can see the authentic local culture and way of life. From here, you can take a boat ride along the Mekong River.

Hua Hin and Cha Am

This city, only a few hours by bus or rental car from Bangkok, is set in unbelievably lovely surroundings. Hua Hin is the location for the Maruekatayawan palace, also known as the "palace of love and hope." This royal building would make a very appropriate background for your wedding pictures.

Khao Lak

For couples who dream of a wedding by the sea, this is an ideal place. You can even get married under the sea in snorkel gear in the area of the Similan and Surin Islands or on a boat if you're a bit less adventurous. Check out the national park at Lam Ru. Another advantage is the many affordable hotels in the area, which can be used to house the whole wedding party. A local wedding planner will be able to tell you which beach in the area she recommends for a private wedding ceremony.

Koh Samui

If you're looking for a place that has it all, look no further than Koh Samui. Choose from a number of secluded beaches which you and your wedding party will have basically to yourselves while you say your "I do's." Then spend an exciting honeymoon swimming, diving, snorkeling, playing golf, riding on elephants and shopping.


Krabi is known for its outdoor life. Enjoy rock climbing, strolling and snorkeling or diving in its crystal clear water. One of Krabi's gorgeous white sand beaches would make a romantic day or evening setting for your wedding.


Pattaya has become a very popular destination for couples getting married in Thailand. And no wonder it has beaches, rain forest and unbelievable cultural sites. This beach resort city is also located a short distance from Bangkok, so it's convenient to organize trips to other parts of the country. However, you may just choose to stay for your honeymoon in Pattaya. Its serene atmosphere and interesting activities could be just the combination you're looking for.


Phuket is the ideal location for your wedding in Thailand if you're bringing a lively group of friends along. Tourists come here from all over the world to enjoy the famously vibrant nightlife. You'll enjoy both the magnificent views and the fast paced activity.
