Planning the Honeymoon

Discuss the budget, duration of the honeymoon, where to go and what to do with the partner when the wedding is being planned. Go online and read up on best honeymoon destinations and if going overseas get the assistance of travel agents the likes of Aitken Spence Holidays to help plan the trip.

Best time to visit

Consider the best time to visit when selecting the dream destination. Avoid local holidays as many hotels and attractions will be crowded. If the price is a concern, travel during the least expensive times such as in the middle of the year.

Things to do

Honeymoons can be fun as there are many things to do from scuba diving, snorkelling, to golf, excursions to places of interest, indulgent spa treatments to river safaris and jungle walks, elephant treks, whale and dolphin watching and wildlife safaris.

Dining

One of the most romantic experiences honeymooners can have out here is dining under the stars. Many hotels offer special three-course meals on the beach with succulent seafood as part of the honeymoon package. The other option is a romantic early morning river cruise with a champagne breakfast.

Wedding, People, Pair, Thailand Sets, Thailand

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.
