Working with a Wedding Planner in Thailand

Working with a Wedding Planner

Imagine this romantic scene: you and your partner, dressed in full formal wear, exchange wedding vows on the beach and then share a kiss... with an elephant in the background. This is an unforgettable image and one that will be a permanent reminder of your wedding in Thailand. These days you can plan your whole wedding in Thailand from home before you even step on the plane, with the help of a wedding planner based in Thailand. There are plenty of exciting Thai locales where you can hire a wedding planner to take charge of all the organizational details, from the ceremony and reception right down to hairstyles and makeup. Naturally you won't have to travel far for your honeymoon in this magical country full of intriguing things to see and do.

Choose a Location

First of all, think about the location and type of ceremony you would like to have. The idea of taking your vows on a gorgeous Thai beach with the smell of tropical flowers and salt breezes in the air is romantic and exciting. Depending on your personality, you may think of this as a very private moment, or you may want the whole clan there to share your joy. Once you've chosen a location, look for a wedding planner in that area, who will take charge of things onsite and make sure all the details go smoothly.

It is up to you to decide what kind of wedding you want, in which type of venue. The choices are almost endless a wedding on the beach, atop an elephant, on a boat or next to the hotel pool. Wedding planners in Thailand are flexible and want this day to be all about you.


The wedding planner will make sure the place you have chosen for your ceremony is available and all the food and decorations are ready at the right moment. Even with the best planner on your team, it's a good idea to arrive a few days in advance to go over all the last minute details. Try to book a wedding package that includes body care for both bride and groom. A traditional Thai massage and facial a day or two before your wedding will ensure that you are relaxed and glowing when you walk down the aisle. A local stylist or salon should be booked in advance to take care of hair styling and makeup on the day itself. The wedding planner can take care of all of this for you.

The Photographer

Don't forget the photographer. Relying on a friend with a standard digital camera to record your wedding is a big risk. Ask the wedding planner to arrange for a photographer who is experienced with both still pictures and video. If you're not sure this is necessary, think again. Year from now, on a cold winter's day back home, the video and photos from your Thai wedding will warm your spirits.
