Organizing a wedding can be a very difficult and stressful task. There are just so many different things that a person needs to take care of, and because it is such an important event in anyone’s life, it becomes even more difficult to keep everything under control. However, if you are trying to organize a unique kind of wedding, it could be a lot more fun, and regardless of the effort involved, you are bound to enjoy it. In this article, we shall talk about organizing a beach wedding.
Organizing a beach wedding is not as difficult as many people generally think, but can be done easily if you just know how to take care of a few things. If you are able to organize yourself and follow the steps mentioned below, you are bound to enjoy your wedding in a better manner.
Getting Married in Thailand
To marry in Thailand you need to prove that you are unmarried. If you are a foreigner you will need a document authorising this from your embassy. You need to contact your own embassy in Thailand well in advance of your wedding day to get this approval letter. Marriages can be registered during normal office hours. You can contact them via their website mfa.go.th
Choosing a Location
The first question that you need to decide upon is the beach that you will choose. There are public beaches, and private beaches. The choice mainly depends upon you, but obviously, a private beach is a much better option because you can get the area on rent and make it in to a much more enjoyable wedding. On a public beach, most people do not really feel as comfortable as they should, and this makes it very difficult for the guests to be able to really enjoy the wedding. Also, on a public beach, there are other people around too, so it is generally not a closed, personal affair. However, public beaches will cost much lesser as compared to private beaches, so you have to be manage your budget as well.
Secondly, catering and washroom facilities need to be checked out too. Generally if you choose a private beach, you can get washroom facilities on rent as well as proper catering, but it is important to make sure that your guests are as comfortable on the beach as possible, and because of that reason, you need to go out of your way to get these facilities on the beach.
Finally, it is very important to know that the dress code on the beach differs greatly from a closed hall. People will be coming in very relaxed and informal attire, which is the reason why the bride and groom can’t really choose to go in the standard wedding dressing. The bride will go for a simple sun dress, while the groom will be casually dressed too.
