Here are some tips to help you get started planning your perfect Phuket destination wedding. Regardless of where you are in the world, this free wedding advice will help anyone plan the best wedding abroad.
1. Location is Everything
If you want to have a private wedding which also has beach access and is a little off the beaten path from tourists then there is some considerable planning involved. Depending on how many extracurricular activities you want to enjoy while you’re on the island as well as other important factors like food, seating, and on-site facilities, you’ll want to compare the pros and cons of different locations.
2. Advance Notification for Your Guests
If you want your best man or favorite friends to be able to attend your wedding in Thailand then it’s highly recommended to get those invitations out well in advance. We recommend all our weddings in Phuket to have no less than a 3 month’s notice just to try and ensure the specific amenities and venues are available. Not to mention your guests’ ability to take time off work, plan around the needs of their family or if they can even afford it.
3. Embrace Local Thai Decorations
You can save a considerable amount of money by incorporating local blooms into your budget instead of importing lavish and unnecessary expenses like flowers in the Netherlands when you can have beautiful bouquets and floral arrangements provided locally.
4. Think About Your Guests
Try to think about not only an affordable place for your guests to stay but also how close it is to where you’re staying or where the ceremony will take place. Don’t select a date before you know there’s room available at a reasonable place for your guests.
5. Make Sure to Hire Professionals
Make sure to find a local wedding planner or coordinator that specializes in Phuket destination weddings. Working with an experienced professional like Unique Phuket Wedding Planners will not only ensure you won’t have to overcome language barriers but can also guarantee you won’t have to pay higher costs as a foreigner. Working with an established and reputable local business also means they’ll know all the best areas, already have established connections within the hospitality industry and other wedding professionals. This is the best way to minimize problems and make sure you get everything you want for the perfect wedding in Phuket.
6. Visit in Advance if Possible
In an ideal situation, you will visit before you make your wedding plans so you’re more familiar with the lay of the land and maybe even some specific areas you’re interested in first hand. If you’ve already visited Phuket then that will make things a lot easier for everyone, but even if you haven’t, working with the right wedding planners can easily overcome your lack of experience with all the best options for you and your loved one.
7. Picking the Perfect Vendors
Another benefit of picking a local professional to organize everything for you is that you will get the best-recommended companies from flowers to rentals and the top venue selections. When it comes to planning a Destination wedding in Phuket , the last thing you want to do is risk choosing some random person from social media or search results.
8. Budgeting Properly
Having someone represent you locally in Phuket will save you a fortune in expenses as they’ll already know the acceptable price ranges for whatever amenities you want and also be able to negotiate on your behalf.
9. Packing for The Trip
Try and pack everything you wouldn’t leave home without for a domestic holiday or important night out. Then make sure to also pack additional important items whose quality may not be up to your standards from another country, particularly if you’re from a western country like the United States or the UK. If you end up in Thailand and then decide you want something different, shipping overseas is not only risky but also expensive, so always pack as much as possible into your checked luggage.
10. Destination Wedding Dress
If you’re not planning on having your dress custom made here in Thailand then you’ll want to make sure the fabric and materials are breathable for the hotter more humid climate here in the Land of Smiles. Another thing, if you’re planning on bringing your dress with you, then we recommend carrying it on so you don’t run the risk of it being lost or damaged.
