The perfect wedding starts with the perfect venue, and Thailand’s Lanna Kingdom with its period architecture and traditional culture offers an amazing backdrop for any occasion.

A bit of history

Located in Northern Thailand, Lanna was once a flourishing kingdom with its own unique culture and architecture. However, after centuries of war with neighbouring Burma, the kingdom fell into disarray and by the 1800s was annexed by the Siam king. Today, visitors can still see evidence of its rich culture in the city of Chiang Ma.

Lanna as a wedding destination

Lanna wedding guarantees an unforgettable event. The combination of Burmese temples, ornate teak structures, and Thai traditions sets the tone for a charming wedding. From luxury city hotels to scenic resorts such as Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort, you’ll have plenty of options in terms of stunning locations.

Traditional Lanna ceremony

In a traditional ceremony, the venue is adorned with beautiful flowers, and the groom starts the ceremony by carrying trays filled with more flowers and bridal gifts. A monk will then offer blessings and prayers for a peaceful and prosperous wedded life and tie a binding string around the couple’s wrists. The ceremony ends when the couple plant a love tree.

Compliment your wedding with an amazing meal

A Lanna wedding isn’t complete without a sumptuous meal that includes signature sweet and savoury dishes from across Northern Thailand.

The Atmosphere

Home to dozens of stunning temples clad in gold, Luang Prabang embodies a traditional yet timeless atmosphere; a magical setting perfect to celebrate your very own fairy-tale Laos wedding with your friends and family around you.

The Setting

Luang Prabang is home to a wide range of exquisite colonial villas and hotels such as AVANI+ Luang Prabang, which offers couples great wedding packages that cater to different budgets. Making inquiries and booking well advance is recommended.

The Logistics

If you wish to be cost-effective with your planning, choosing to book your wedding venue and other plans for the off-peak season would help you save up to 20-35% off your given rates. To save more consider booking your flights around 3-6 prior. This applies especially for ASEAN regions, since booking in advance is approximately 53% cheaper than doing so closer to the date.

Plan Minimally

Destination weddings can be quite expensive, but it also can be quite affordable if one goes about planning it correctly and minimally. Thinking long and hard about what will be crucial for the ceremony and keeping the guest list small will save you a couple hundred of dollars. Since destination weddings are all about the views, location and novel experience consider skipping the extravagant party favours and decorations.
