Destination weddings can be a memorable experience for both the couple and guests. Therefore, if a couple is thinking about having a destination wedding, they need to do their research beforehand.
If a couple is thinking about booking a property such as SAii Koh Samui for their wedding, the first thing they need to do is contact the Thailand Tourism Board. The reason for this is the booking venues – one needs to ensure that they satisfy the legal requirements necessary to marry in Thailand. However, if one is simply planning on marrying in their home country and only having the ceremony in Thailand they need not worry about these requirements.
Time Needed to Plan a Wedding
Many of the Koh Samui wedding venues tend to be booked months or even years in advance. Thus, that is why you need at least 6 months to a year to plan your wedding. Ideally, it is advisable to give yourself at least a year’s worth of time in order to book your dream venue.
Best Locations for a Wedding
When choosing a wedding location, one has to first decide whether they want to have an indoor or outdoor wedding. If it’s the latter then it is advisable to look for a boutique resort as they allow couples to have the ceremony anywhere they want on the property. Furthermore, their concierge service would also assist them when making arrangements, therefore reducing some of the pressure that is on the couple.
It is generally not advisable to book airfare without finalising the wedding venue. Therefore one has to look at airfare only once the date and the venue are confirmed. As tickets tend to be cheapest three to six months before the departure date, give yourself time to make these arrangements. It would also be a great idea to consult a travel agent as you would be buying multiple tickets.
