If you are looking for an exotic getaway along with a spiritual ceremony in a land famous for its hospitality and beauty, then a wedding in Thailand is certain to deliver exactly what you require.
Known as the ‘Land of Endless Smiles’, Thailand is a truly beautiful destination for a wedding abroad. It’s sheer beauty coupled with its world renowned service culture and welcoming hospitality make Thailand one of the more special wedding destinations.
Thailand offers a host of unique wedding locations; you can choose to have your wedding ceremony on the beach, at a world-class hotel or resort or even in a Buddhist Temple. Thai culture has many wonderful traditions, many of which can be included in your wedding celebrations to make your day even more special and unique.
If you choose to get married in Thailand, before your marriage ceremony can take place, you will be required to spend up to 3 days in Bangkok to complete the marriage registration process. As this involves a certain amount of paperwork and appointments at government offices, I would highly recommend using the services of a Wedding Planner to help you through this process.
