When the first note starts playing, take a deep breath and get out of the car. Your feet appear to be floating over the petal-strewn path and you almost feel like you are in a movie when you look at the scene in front of you. Your closest friends, your family, everyone you love are gathered together. The sky is perfectly teal and blends with the turquoise ocean beyond. A calm ocean breeze blows you around and guides you forward as you go on a new life and brand new adventure that you have dreamed of all your life.

Destination Wedding is a dream for so many young couples who dream of making their vows amid beautiful views and picturesque backdrops. And since destination weddings are in high demand for the discerning Indian crowd, Thailand is one of the best places to host a dream wedding or other post-pandemic celebration. The beauty of the destination is so great that there is something for everyone, making it the perfect place to add to your travel wish list when the borders reopen. The beaches of Phuket offer nice suggestions. The gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels of Bangkok are ideal for celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. Pattaya beach resorts make excellent wedding venues, whether it’s a Big Fat Indian Wedding or you’re planning a small, intimate celebration. With its vibrant nightlife (perfect for bachelorette parties) or its secret, lesser-known beaches (for honeymooners), Thailand will not disappoint on any occasion. In fact, even the best of Bollywood is no stranger to the land of smiles – you can find scenes from Student of The Year and Veer Di Wedding filmed in Bangkok, Phuket and Samui.

This is what dreams are made of

The beauty of a Destination Wedding is the chance to escape the real world and escape into a bubble full of excitement, adventure and trucks full of love. And in Thailand you get exactly that and more. It’s not called the Land of Smiles for nothing – and that’s because the hospitality you experience here cannot be found anywhere else. From welcome drinks and free spa treatments for your guests to sightseeing and adventure, Thailand has a lot to offer for the complete wedding experience. After all, sometimes it is not the top-class delights that make a wedding unforgettable. It’s the little things that make a wedding special. Tailor-made events, curated menus, dreamy backdrops, expertly put together excursions make for a glamorous yet meaningful celebration.

If you’ve always dreamed of walking down the aisle with the sea breeze in your hair and sand under your feet, this is the perfect place for a beach wedding. Or if the charm of the forest inspires you, there are numerous options for forest weddings or even mountain ceremonies with a view of the sea and the forests. Nothing is as romantic as a beautiful outdoor wedding. The serene islands, the peaceful riverside, the dramatic rolling hills or even the plantations make a wonderful backdrop for a perfect wedding. Places like Hua Hin, Phuket, Khao Lak, Rayong, Pattaya and Bangkok are some of the most popular places.

You can have an Indian wedding absolutely anywhere

The local Thai culture, music, dance and cuisine make your celebrations special. The big, bold Indian wedding thrives on color, light, love and laughter – and Thai culture mixes with it perfectly to create a lively celebration that will be remembered. You can even gift your guests with beautiful Thai handicrafts such as handmade jewelry, artificial flowers, soaps, textiles and home accessories. For wedding decorations, you can easily find an abundance of flowers and decorative items that will transform any room into a beautiful wedding venue. The traditional Indian wedding services are readily available here, including a pundit, mehendi artist, makeup artist, and even a horse or elephant for the wedding! World class resorts can be booked in Thailand at affordable prices, bringing you the very best in luxury and hospitality without breaking the bank.

For adventurous couples, Thailand has a lot to offer for an exciting honeymoon. Discover the underwater world while diving or snorkeling in the pristine waters of Koh Tao or Koh Samui – there are even couples who have proposed marriage underwater! With a little planning, there is nothing that cannot be done for love. The Similan Islands are home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Thailand with soft sand and sparkling crystal blue waters. Chiang Mai offers some of the most spectacular hikes and waterfalls where you can go swimming or just relax on the rocks and enjoy the company of your partner.

Everything is possible in Thailand – from your fairytale wedding to your dream proposal, romantic honeymoon to a glamorous anniversary celebration, it is the perfect place to write your own love story.
