Sri Lanka wedding planners are very experienced

Other than for being a happy couple in love you may not have a clue about planning a beach wedding. This is the benefit of choosing Sri Lanka as your wedding destination. Many resorts offer the services of very experienced wedding planners who on meeting and getting to know the couple expertly understand and offer a ceremony package that is perfect for their tastes and expectations.

There are no ‘off seasons’

As a tropical destination, the country does not have any particular offseasons; the only anomaly is during the two monsoon seasons which are experienced at different points of the island.

The best honeymoon memories

Choosing the country for your wedding means you need not visit any other location for a dream honeymoon. The stunning scenery around the beaches and rustic fisher villages are quite romantic while cycle tours into the countryside and excursions to ancient coastal temples promise to add more than a touch of magic to your wedding.

Choose the Type of Ceremony

Apart from the location, you should also decide what style or type of ceremony you want to have. While you can host a typical western style celebration, many countries also give couples the option of celebrating their wedding in keeping with local customs and ceremonies.

Look for Special Packages

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.
