Planning

It is essential that you’ve drawn up your own plan for the event before you start on any of the arrangements. Think about your theme, hotel, guest list, food, and entertainment. This will also help you make your budget. Also, consulting a wedding planner when planning your wedding in Thailand is a must.

The backdrop

Do you visualise yourself exchanging rings in the setting of a garden by the beach? Hotels like Chatrium Residence Riverside Bangkok is ideal for a wedding by the riverside. However, have a clear picture in your mind before going ahead and reserving a hotel.

Logistics

When selecting your location in Thailand, you have a wide variety of options from a wedding in the mountains to a wedding by the beach or just at the ballroom of a luxurious hotel. However, if the place is hard to get to, the cost is said to be most likely to increase by 30%.

A bit of Thai

Since your wedding is in Thailand, why not make it unique by adding a touch of Thai culture? Event facilities in Bangkok hotels offer a bit of a Thai twist to your wedding. Still, it is your option whether you’ll go along with it or not.

Selecting the setting

The atmosphere you want to set for your wedding is highly important. Are you looking at a beach wedding or something indoors?

Look up wedding venues in Bangkok, the likes of Chatirum Hotels & Residences, which will make the deciding process much easier.

A wedding planner

To ensure everything occurs way ahead of time so that you don’t have to fret about preparing during the very last minute, hire a wedding planner. They are the experts and know how to go about thins, especially in a land that you aren’t familiar with. This is a decision you won’t regret.

A Thai twist

The simple fact that you’re having your wedding in Thailand is amazing, however, to bring on a unique twist to things, add a Thai mix to it. It doesn’t really matter how you go about adding this twist, as far as you do. A Thai performance or Thai decor is enough to bring out the uniqueness of your wedding.

Food

The food plays a rather large role in any wedding, therefore ensure the menu at your wedding is something the guests look forward to. Thailand is a food haven, so you’re not bound to come across any issues in this regard.

Cuddle Time
One of the best “perks” of the cold are the many opportunities to cuddle and get close to your partner! Be you staying at cabins in the Swiss Alps, lodges in Alaska or cottages in Nuwara Eliya including the likes of Cottage 42, embrace both the wonderful setting and your loved one for some all important snuggling.

Romantic Strolls
The cool weather makes taking strolls that much more romantic. Forget about the heat, dust and the sweat which are definitely not going to set the “right mood” and enjoy a leisurely walk, hand in hand amidst everything from mountain scenery to snow-covered landscapes.

Fun Exploring
The active couple may want to do more than just take some strolls! Most destinations with cool climates also have lots of adventures in store. Enjoy an afternoon of skiing, hike up mountains, trek through nature reserves or go ice skating; depending on the destination there will be much to experience.

Back Indoors
Of course, as the temperature drops, you can come back inside where there’s more to do. Play your favourite board or card games, have an indoor picnic (fireplace optional though highly recommended!), watch your favourite movies snuggled up together or just share your hopes, dreams and fears with the person who loves you unconditionally.
