Are you planning on having another night of Netflix and chilling on the couch with your other half? If you answered ‘yes’ to that, then it’s time to plan a romantic getaway that does not involve cheesy movies and unhealthy snacks. The snow-capped mountains and some dope slopes in Whistler mountains are the perfect destinations to check out!

Explore by floatplane

The best way to discover beautiful Whistler is via floatplane. This unforgettable ride is scary, exciting and memorable for sure. You can capture unparalleled views of the countless lakes and the surrounding landscapes. However, this doesn’t come cheap. You can get a 30 min flight around Whistler for around CAD 200; if you can splurge a bit more, you can enjoy an alpine lake landing with lunch.

Brandywine Falls

You must visit Brandywine Falls when you’re here. It’s located on the outskirts of the main town just 15 mins away from Whistler ski area hotels such as the luxurious Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside. The waterfall is amazing on its own but the site is also a stunning lookout spot over the valley below. If you’re on your way to Vancouver or heading to Whistler from that way, you must stop here and take in the scenic views.

Joffre Lakes

Located just outside of Whistler, the Joffre Lakes is a sight to behold with stunning mountain peaks and glistening blue water everywhere your eye meets. This is one of the most popular hiking trails in British Colombia. The hike itself is quite rewarding with scenic views that will take your breath away but the real prize is the three lakes at the end of the main trail surrounded by a beautiful pine forest.

The River of Golden Dreams

The River of Golden Dreams sounds like the perfect honeymoon couple’s destination. You can take a romantic, relaxing kayak ride down the river with your loved one for a unique experience. You can explore the beautiful surroundings with your better half, starting from Alta Lake.

For a truly enchanting wedding, Koh Phangan in Thailand offers the perfect setting and this guide provides essential information to help plan your special day here.

Choosing the Location & Resort

This island may be famed for its full moon beach parties, but it also offers secluded shores perfect for a romantic beach wedding. One such ideal coastal locale would be Thong Nai Pan Noi Beach where you could stay at properties like Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas which also offer the services of a wedding planner. The great thing is, such resorts are perfect for your honeymoon too featuring an ocean pool villa with direct beach access, spa bliss with couples’ treatments, beach dining and more!

Selecting the Venue

You will also have a choice of venues in which to host your celebration of love though the most popular option is to have a beach wedding. Thailand offers the perfect setting for such nuptials on Koh Phangan with some resorts providing a lovely setting on the shore; imagine a white sand aisle sprinkled with rose petals and a floral archway amidst an ocean backdrop. Depending on the property, you could instead opt for a tropical garden venue or even a cliffside deck for an intimate ceremony overlooking an idyllic bay.

Types of Wedding Ceremonies

Keep in mind that in Koh Phangan, wedding packages are available that let you choose the type of ceremony as well. For something unique, you could opt for a traditional Thai ritual which will include aspects like a master of ceremonies, Buddhist monks, a water blessing set, a tea ceremony with Thai sweets and live Thai khim music. Alternatively, you could choose a typical Western ceremony on the beach with floral arrangements, a wedding celebrant, wedding cake, a bottle of champagne, instrumental background music and more.

Legal or Symbolic Wedding

Remember, that to legally be wed in Thailand, it can first take three to five days in Bangkok to get all the formalities in order and submit the needed paperwork. This can be time-consuming and will most often require the aid of a local wedding planner making it more suited for residents or those that are staying long-term here. The more convenient choice for foreign couples is to have the legal ceremony in their home country and enjoy a symbolic ceremony in Koh Phangan the way they always dreamed.
