What is a Thai buddhist wedding?

A Thai Buddhist wedding usually consists of two parts: 1. Buddhist monk blessing and 2.  Thai traditional water pouring ceremony which involves pouring holy water blessed by the monks over the couple’s hands by all wedding guests, onto flowers. And there is much more….!

What are the special additions to a Thai buddhist wedding blessing we can consider?

A Thailand Elephant Wedding or Thailand Baby Elephant Wedding photoshoot adds many blessings to the Thai buddhist wedding blessing. Some couples also like to combine with a western style traditional arch ceremony on the beach. This is the best of both worlds, Thai and Western ceremonies.

What do you recommend for Thai buddhist wedding attire?

You need to dress conservatively for Thai Buddhist Wedding attire. Do not show your skin too much, especially ladies! This is to respect the monks. If you wish to have traditional Thai clothing, we can also rent that to you.

Are there many Thai buddhist wedding customs?

Yes! But don’t worry, it will be easy to follow along and we’ll guide you through it all during the day. Once the booking is confirmed we’ll send you a small eBook about traditional Thai Buddhist weddings customs.

Is a Buddhist wedding in Thailand that same as elsewhere?

Similar but not the same. A Buddhist Wedding in Thailand is not the same as a Buddhist Wedding in Bhutan or Nepal for example. This is because Buddhism has various different vehicles such as Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana. Thailand is generally in the traditional Theravada vehicle of Buddhism meaning it is the most authenticly traditional or earliest teachings. It tends to emphasize prayers and meditations only (instead of mantras and various Buddhist deities).

Are you a Thai wedding planner?

Yes, we are a Thai Wedding Planner team partnered with Western Wedding Planners. Wen bring you the cultural sensitivity and efficiency that is unique among Phuket Wedding Planners and Phuket Wedding Services. A Thai wedding planner can easily arrange the temple requirements while a western planner can communicate with you most clearly.

What time is a typical Buddhist wedding ceremony in Thailand?

A typical Buddhist wedding ceremony in Thailand starts in the morning or afternoon. We need to recheck about the available time for the monks, before the event date. Sometimes their schedule is booked for other rituals and prayers. Therefore, it is good to plan in advance. A Thai Buddhist Wedding Phuket typically starts in the late-afternoon or mid-morning.

Can a Thai wedding ceremony be combined with a Western Wedding?

Yes! We have many couples combining their Thai Wedding Ceremony with a western tradition at the temple (free) or at another location such as the nearby pristine beaches of Phuket (usually has setup costs).

Do Thai wedding traditions cost much?

Thai Wedding Traditions have similar costs to simple western beach weddings. A typical package starts at around 45,000 to 55,000 THB (1500 to 1850 USD) with everything you need for a Traditional Thai Wedding and Monk Blessing. We’ll include a Western Vow/Ring exchange led by a professional celebrant for you as well, if you would like. Along with professional wedding photography and much more.
