White sandy beaches, picturesque karsts and with a glorious sunset, you will not find a more romantic setting other than in Thailand for your fairytale wedding ceremony. Although planning a destination wedding may have slight complications which could be avoided with great care.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Inform guests in advance
A destination wedding requires quite a commitment on the part of the guests, from travel costs to getting off work. It is only fair on your part to inform them well in advance by sending invitations at least 24 months prior to the event.
Pick the right season
The best Bangkok resorts provide special offers during the raining season in Thailand. Travel prices are also greatly reduced during this time although if you want a glorious tropical wedding under the crispy sunlight, the summer is the best time for you.
Pre wedding trip
An array of beach side resorts and riverside properties such as Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort offer wedding packages. It is always advisable to visit the place before the ceremony as it is easier to communicate your wishes and concerns in order to avoid disappointments.
Take care of the legal stuff
Make sure to contact your embassy and the Tourist Information Bureau regarding documentation and other specifications with regards to legalization of your marriage. Conduct a thorough research on the requirements as some countries require the couple to live in the country for a few days.
