Now and Forever

Getting married and changing life forever has to be the most important day of any one’s life. Each couple wants to celebrate their wedding in their own special way and everyone wants it to be perfect, according to their own definition of the word.

Couples all over the world are increasingly turning to beach weddings as stunning locations around the world are just a plane ride away. Soft powdery sand underfoot, the stunning setting of a blue sea highlighted by striking tropical foliage and the background sound of waves lapping the shore is many couple’s idea of the best setting to celebrate that special day besides giving the proceedings a touch of informality. The beach is a naturally beautiful setting and there is no need to embellish such a venue, especially if it is a sunny tropical destination where a blue sea or a colorful sunset is always at hand to lend their magic. The biggest advantage of a beach wedding is that if family and friends are invited they too are assured of having a wonderful time prompted by the fun location. Everyone can be relaxed and less formally dressed and even be without shoes! There will be much less rushing around as the wedding ceremony and reception can all be held in one location and it will also help to keep things intimate. Another advantage is that everything can be conveniently arranged beforehand by talking to a wedding planner at the venue of choice. The onsite wedding planner will pay attention to the bride’s needs, provide menus, flowers, entertainment and will make sure that everything goes well. Perfect wedding planning will allow the bride and her family to be relaxed.

Although Koh Phangan is famous for its noisy and crowded full moon beach parties at Haad Rin beach, the island has several quiet bays, coves and stretches of golden sandy beaches dotted around that are away from crowds and are perfect for beach weddings. Many hotels offer comprehensive packages covering the ceremony, the reception, accommodation and even the honeymoon. Here couples can walk down petal strewn sand to a simple floral archway under which vows can be exchanged. They can choose to be married in a western or Thai wedding ceremony that will include a blessing from a Buddhist monk. The best time to get married at Koh Phangan is between December and March when the temperatures are pleasant, there is no rain and there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy water sports. July and August just after the dry season is the other favorable period to consider getting married here.

Stay at Rasananda Koh Phangan Villa, Resort & Spa to enjoy a perfect tropical location right on the beach. As one of key Koh Phangan hotels, guests are offered a selection of spacious pool, ocean and garden villas and suites that is the ideal accommodation from which to enjoy the many aspects of a wonderful location. The other interesting features of one of prominent Koh Phangan resorts are dining venues that reflect the aesthetic of its location and amenities and facilities that provide the perfect background for an unforgettable vacation.
