For a truly memorable Thai experience on your wedding day we are pleased to offer our special Thai Wedding Package.
The day begins early with a hair and makeup appointment for the bride and assistance for both, the bride and groom, for fitting the traditional Thai costume. The next step is a long drum parade from the villa to the ceremony area. This is a traditional way of beginning to celebrate your special day. Once at the ceremony area the Buddhist monks will arrive and receive from the bride and groom.
Once the monks have taken their places the bride and groom begin by sitting in front of the Buddha image, lighting candles and joss sticks, and offering these as a way of paying homage to Buddha and Buddhism. The monks then begin to chant and the bride and groom are led through the ritual chanting by a prayer leader.
During the chanting, a yarn garland is placed on the bride’s and groom’s head and connected to the monks. At the end of the chanting the head monk will sprinkle the bridal couple and guests with the now holy water. The bridal couple is anointed by the monk on their forehead to ward off any ill omens.
At the completion of this part of the ceremony the bridal couple offers food to the monks. Part of the practice of monk hood is to only eat food that has been received via offering.
The second part of the ceremony is known as the “Rot Naam” ceremony, or lustral water ceremony. During this ceremony the bridal couple sits facing their guests who take turns to pour holy water over the hands of the bridal couple as a symbolic gesture of showing their good wishes for the newly married couple.
Traditionally, the Thai wedding ceremony takes part in the morning as it is required that the monks are back within temple grounds by noon. Most Thai couples will have this ceremony with their close family and friends in the morning at their own house and then continue to a more celebratory event afterwards, usually lasting all day and well into the night.
