Thai weddings are easy to plan (in the grand scheme of weddings), and the natural beauty of the beach makes it the perfect backdrop for a couple starting s new life together. The process of planning a wedding in Thailand from another country abroad is relatively straight forward, and choosing to hold your wedding at a luxury beach resort only makes the process easier. Choosing Thailand as the destination for your beach wedding is an affordable option (depending on your chosen packaged), can achieve a beautiful beach wedding in Thailand for less than you would pay for a local wedding, particularly if you live in an expensive city like London, Dublin or Manchester.

A Beach Wedding in Thailand

The beautiful beaches of Thailand are known worldwide for their delicate sand and remarkable views of the blue water. Holding a wedding ceremony here is a perfect choice for any couple who loves the outdoors and wants to celebrate their love in the sunshine. Bring your loved ones with you for a one of a kind holiday and wedding that you will never forget.

Beach weddings in Thailand can be customized to meet the preferences of the bride and groom. Ceremonies can include Thai arches, flowers, chairs and decorations customize to your idea, you can incorporate some or all of the traditional Thai elements into your special day. A Thai wedding includes many traditions that are designed to bring the couple good fortune in their life together. The evening before a traditional wedding in Thailand, monks will visit the bride and groom and join their hands as they pray to the bride's ancestors for happiness and a long marriage for the couple. Early on the morning of the wedding, the monks will return to light a candle and pray over a bowl of water. During the wedding ceremony later in the day, the same water is used to bless the couple as they join lives. Next, the couple and their families visit the temple before getting married to offer gifts in return to the monks. These are typically simple items like food, incense, money and flowers to bring the monks sustenance and prosperity as they continue to pray. As the bride and groom, you are free to incorporate any or all of these traditions, or honor your own religious arrangements and ceremony to be held on the beach.

Deciding on the location for your wedding, there are two main areas within Thailand you should add to your short list if you're looking for a spectacular beach view like no other. Phuket is an idyllic location, set just off the pristine white coastline of Thailand. Known worldwide for the beauty of the white sand beach and clear blue waters, this island is one of the top tourist destinations in Thailand. Each year, visitors flock to the island to explore the soft sand beaches and the natural beauty and diversity of the rain forest. Having a Phuket wedding  allows you to have a vacation in a beautiful location with your closest family and friends, and also start your new life as a married couple in a memorable way. The island offers a perfect combination of nature's beauty and modern Thai life. There is something to do for everyone, whether they prefer to enjoy nature or spend time in the city. Phuket City offers plenty for your guests to do by day or night, including shopping, dining and entertainment.

If you prefer a more idyllic, classically Thai experience, a Hua Hin wedding may be the right venue for you. Once a sleepy fishing town, Hua Hin gained popularity centuries ago as a resort town for royalty and rich people. The resort village has a laid back feeling, but is not far from Bangkok, making it easy for you to visit before or after the wedding.

Spent an incredible week at this magnificent resort earlier this month. What an amazing place to get away from it all. The villas are incredibly designed with comfort & spaciousness being the top priority. The hospitality by the entire team from the Resort Manager Matthias & Executive Chef Valero right on down to every staff member exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks for taking such great care of us. I will definitely be back.

This was my first trip to Thailand and I was worried in case I had missed the boat on the Thailand of old. I should not have worried. This small, intimate and friendly five star resort is the most perfect position on a spectacular stretch of beach at Pak Nampran Bay. The emphasis on sustainability and doing things in a green and eco fashion makes you feel like you are also doing your bit. As a passionate foodie, I loved the fact that the menu is created from produce organically grown at the eco farm a few kilometres away. The menu tells you how far each dish has travelled to reach your table. One of my favorite moments was waking up to watch the sunrise from the comfort of my huge squishy bed, which overlooked the beach. Each afternoon, someone delivers a beautiful tray of fresh canapes to your room. You can even choose what time you would like to enjoy happy hour! It's rare to find a high end hotel with such a down to earth, friendly vibe and most importantly of all, a very clear and passionate social conscience. Please keep on doing what you are doing, please don't change. I'll be back and thank you for an unforgettable stay.

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon on your premises from December 5 to December 12, 2016. Our stay at Aleenta was absolutely fantastic and felt way too short! We enjoyed your kind hospitality, the extraordinary food, the facilities, the massages and the view we had from our room to the fullest. My husband and I are experienced travellers but we have hardly come across such friendliness, kindness and willingness as from you to make our holidays so special and unique. We will surely come back and already miss you a lot. Thank you so very much again!

An amazing experience! We were a large group for a wedding and it was such a nice experience. I actually ended up sleeping on hammock. The food was really good, and all the service was amazing.
