The following Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) may be helpful to you, in learning more about the process of wedding planning and getting married in Thailand. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more specific information.

Aren't Wedding Planners more Expensive than DIY or Resort Planners?

Although counter intuitive, wedding planners have all the right connections with vendors and venues to pass on savings to the bride and groom. Having built up these contacts over years, most importantly, we can arrange a stylish event at your budget point.

Why use a Wedding Planner got getting married in Thailand?

Wedding planners are particularly valuable for Destination Weddings, where an expert is required on the ground (we are based in Phuket which is Thailand’s premier wedding destination). Brides and grooms increasingly choose to work with a planner, because they will be one point of contact, responsible for all arrangements. A planner can provide experience and connections which are extremely valuable.

Will you do weddings elsewhere?

We are based in Phuket, Thailand’s leading tourism destination with more than 25 stunning beaches and over 10 islands. It is the gateway to the Andaman sea, a marine tourism hub of the region which is also blessed with a new international airport offering direct flights to Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Europe and many other destinations.

Outside of Phuket, we can arrange weddings in Krabi, Phan Nga, Koh Lipe and Koh Lanta. This includes the upcoming destination of Khao Lak, the world famous Phi Phi Islands and Ao Nang among other regional locations or islands.

What does a planner/coordinator do?

We do everything from A to Z. We work closely with the bride and groom to find a venue suiting their budget and put together a team of seasoned professionals who will exceed expectations. Many destination-specific issues arise such as the threat of rain or the need to get a beach permit for a ceremony. Planners take care of all the details for you, so you can give any input on the design (or refer to our designers) and then enjoy the process.

Do you do other events besides weddings?

There is substantial overlap between the wedding industry and events industry. Yes, we also can arrange corporate events and team building events, galas, premiers and fund raisers. Beyond getting married in Thailand, we help all types of event requirements.

When do I get to meet with my wedding planner?

We are happy to meet with you at your earliest time of convenience. When you contact us, please inform available times and we can setup a Skype or Phone call. We are also available on Whatsapp, Line and Facebook Messenger or Viber.

Can we get legally married in Thailand?

Yes for most couples this is possible, however many couples prefer to handle this back at their home country. We have a team in Bangkok and also in Phuket, agents to accompany you and assist you in the process. You would need to attend a meeting at your embassy in Bangkok only, and one government meeting in Phuket (or we can bring the government officer to your ceremony). The additional fees normally range from 30,000 to 40,000 THB for this service. Getting married in Thailand legally does require some extra effort.
