Thailand is a stunning location for a destination wedding. Good food, a tropical climate and a fascinating culture are a fabulous mix for an exotic wedding. And together with the majestic mountains and endless sandy beaches, you’re on track for a fairytale occasion.
Location, location, location
There are many beautiful places to get married in Thailand. Breathtaking islands, mountains, tropical rainforests and, of course, those dreamy sandy beaches. Here’s a rundown of a few of our favourites.
Phuket – Thailand’s largest and most famous island. It has stunning beaches and picturesque viewpoints, and it’s only an hour and a half flight from Bangkok. You’ve got the choice of luxury private villas, 5-star resorts, trendy beach clubs for your wedding.
Koh Samui – A place to relax, indulge and get inspired by the beautiful natural tropical surroundings. An exclusive destination, you have a choice of private villas and world-famous hotels for your celebrations.
Krabi – If you’re looking for a serene, nature-inspired day, Krabi has it all. Waterfalls, lakes, cliffs and jungles, Krabi is so tranquil. Numerous islets and beaches offer beautiful locations for your dream wedding.
Bangkok – If you’d prefer the bright lights of a big city rather than a white sandy beach, Bangkok is the perfect place. With a backdrop of the gorgeous city, you have the choice of ballrooms, lofts and boutique hotels to host your dazzling day.
The best time for a wedding
We would recommend trying to avoid the monsoons! Thailand has three seasons – two of those three are monsoon seasons, so probably best to steer clear! The majority of our trusted suppliers operate around South Thailand, where summer falls between Mid-February and Mid May. These are the driest months, and temperatures can reach a gorgeous 40°C.
Having said that, a number of our suppliers are based in Koh Samui, where the seasons differ slightly, meaning January to March is its driest months.
