Phuket Thailand Wedding Expenses

Getting married in Thailand is a dream destination for many people around the world, but you may be surprised at some of the differences in expenses and expectations if you’re planning to get hitched in the land of smiles. According to a recent press release from the Tourism Authority of Thailand, they claim “the average Thailand wedding cost is around 5-20 million Baht”. Based on this $165,000-650,000 USD estimate, this easily puts the price of a Thai wedding out of most people’s price range. From our personal experience creating custom Phuket Wedding Packages Prices in Thailand for many years now, we guarantee you can have a wonderful and far more affordable wedding for a fraction of the cost. If you’re planning on getting married in the South of Thailand or we have compiled a general list of Phuket wedding costs you can expect to pay whether you have it here or on another island, these expenses are universal.

From our experience, the average all expenses included Phuket wedding package prices for our clients are anywhere from $3,000 USD for a small modest wedding up to $30,000 USD. At Unique Phuket Wedding Planners, we create wedding experiences that you and your guests will cherish for a lifetime. We’ll custom-tailor the wedding ceremony to your specific desires and budget without sacrificing quality for truly unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime. By combining our experienced wedding planners with smarter online systems, we make finding and planning your overseas wedding easy. Below is a list of expenses you can expect to pay throughout Thailand and more specifically Phuket wedding costs, package prices and additional services.

Thailand Wedding Prices Phuket

Dowry Cost in Thailand

If you’re planning on marrying a Thai woman then it’s traditionally expected for the groom and his family to pay the family of the bride a dowry. For a college-educated middle-class family, you can expect to pay anywhere from ฿100,000- 300,000 Baht or $3,000-10,000 USD. That being said, you can also expect to pay less if the woman is uneducated and from a lower-class family.

If the woman has been married in the past, has children or is not a virgin, you can expect this price to fall dramatically. If you’re not planning on marrying a Thai woman but get married in Thailand then a dowry payment, if any, is subject to your own families and traditions.

Average Thai Wedding Venue Cost

Our professional wedding planners Paul and Supparin have experienced far and wide when it comes to the variety of wedding venues available in Thailand. We wouldn’t expect you to plan your special day somewhere we wouldn’t recommend or have previous experience working with to ensure you enjoy only the highest standards.

When we’re talking more specifically about Phuket wedding costs then we can guarantee that we have been to the locations we recommend, assessed their aesthetics and functionality, analyzed their staff and facilities, slept in their rooms and eaten their food. This hands-on experience we have acquired from years of working as local Phuket and Thailand organizers is priceless when it comes to planning the perfect wedding. We’ve already done all of the hard and time-consuming work so you don’t have to. 

Depending on your budget and desires, we can easily arrange a custom wedding package that includes basic necessities like the wedding displays, seating, flowers, food, drinks, and lights, etc. If you want a photographer or videographer we have several highly recommended professionals we work with. Maybe you want something more special like an elephant or monks to bless your wedding, all these things can easily be arranged by Unique Phuket Wedding Planners. It’s not only our specialty but also our passion to arrange the perfect wedding in your price range, whether it’s a low-cost venue like a beach or Thai style garden wedding or a luxurious villa wedding we have you covered.

Thai Wedding Food Costs

For Thai wedding food costs, you can expect to pay anywhere from ฿300-1,000 Baht per person. You can then determine an accurate estimate depending on how many people you’re planning on attending your wedding. For example, if you invited only 20 people then the Thai wedding food costs can be as low as ฿6,000-20,000 or $200-600 USD. For a larger reception and ceremony of up to 200 people the price can be expected to be anywhere from ฿60,000-200,000 Baht or $2,000-6,500 USD.

One factor that can contribute to covering these costs is what is traditionally expected from your wedding guests. If you’re marrying a Thai person then it’s common practice for the guests to leave undisclosed amounts of money in envelopes for the Bride and Groom whereas, in many Western countries, it’s common to bring gifts in addition to money.

Wedding Ring Prices in Thailand

Don’t forget to factor in one of the more important wedding expenses, the Wedding Ring. Honestly, rings in Thailand are generally the same price as anywhere else in the world but like elsewhere, you can always find better prices if you aren’t set on buying from a place like Tiffany and co. The average cost of a wedding ring in Thailand is anywhere from ฿100,000-200,000 Baht or $3,000-$6,500 USD for both his and her engagement ring and wedding bands for the two of you.
