What to Think About When Planning a Phuket Beach

Let’s face it, everyone has dreamed of having a beach wedding at some point in their lives. Imagine having an intimate wedding with only your closest friends and family on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

It will be a dream come true. Indeed, Phuket can be a perfect place to fulfill this life-long dream of yours! That being said, planning a beach wedding is far from easy. Here are a few things that you need to take into consideration while preparing for a beach wedding in Phuket:

Decide on the Venue One of the drawbacks of having a beach wedding is that you have to sacrifice your privacy. Unfortunately, all beaches in Phuket are public by law. This means that you may have a number of unwanted strangers watching your ceremony and walking around the venue as if they are your guests. That being said, you can choose to have your wedding at a hotel with a beach area that is not too easy to access by the public.

Acquire the Permits Before you can have a private wedding on public lands, you need to prepare some paperwork. This permit is not easy to acquire by yourself, which is why you may need to find a Phuket wedding package that includes this permit. However, most wedding packages do not include a wedding certificate. To acquire it, you need to meet with local authorities as well as officials in Bangkok. If you don’t want to deal with all the hassle, a more natural alternative is to have a ceremony first, and then formally sign the documents later on when you go back to your home country.

Decide on the Type of Wedding Another thing to think about is whether you want a Thai-style or a western-style wedding ceremony. This will, of course, depend on your personal preference. Thai weddings will involve a blessing from the local monks. If you want to immerse yourself in the Thai culture, then it might be a good idea to go for a Thai-style wedding!

Check the Weather and Tides When planning any outdoor weddings, one of the most crucial things to consider is the weather. As your entire ceremony will be held in the open, even the lightest rain shower and suffocating heat can ruin your whole wedding. Therefore, you want to make sure that the weather will be at its best during the time of your ceremony. A Phuket beach wedding is most ideal between December to January. When it comes to beach weddings, you also have to take the tides into account. Make sure that the tide level is perfect for your wedding.

Final Notes When all the planning has become too much for you, it may be tempting to give up a beach wedding altogether. However, there is an easy way out for you: wedding packages offered by great beach resorts. They will manage all the hard work for you, including things such as catering, accommodation, photographers, videographers, entertainments, among others. With their help, you can rest assured that you can have the beach wedding that you have always dreamed of having!
