Phuket Destination Weddings

When it comes to Phuket destination wedding venues, there are numerous breath-taking spaces to tie the knot, have a blessing or renew vows. So, for couples who want to say “I do” on this stunning island, here are some planning tips to help you plan for your extra special day.


Having a Phuket destination wedding, away from home means you can enjoy a combination of a wedding and a honeymoon all in one. However, planning such an event from afar means that you will undoubtably need some extra help to ensure you consider all of the important details. Whether you have decided on a tropical beach celebration, exclusive ocean front vow renewal, a sleek cocktail party onboard a yacht, or a traditional Thai style reception; Twinpalms Events can help you plan out your perfect day.



Create a Destination Wedding Website

This can aid streamline information to guests and reduce the need to repeat important details. A wedding website that shares useful information such as where you are staying, the ceremony or reception time and date, what to wear for the day, what to pack, weather in Phuket, etc. will make life easier for all involved. It can ultimately serve as a ‘Save the Date’ announcement and wedding invitation with all the traditional content. You can also use this platform to suggest places of interest, or experiences people may want to enjoy whilst in Phuket pre or post your special day.

Phuket Marriage Regulations

Wedding blessings and renewal of vows are comparatively easy to organise and accommodate as they do not have specific legal requirements. However, each country has different requirements and paperwork in order to make a marriage legal. Thailand is no exception, so if you would like more information on how to make your destination marriage legal, please contact our Twinpalms Events Team.



Capturing Memories

Wedding photography is such an important element of your wedding day; not only will the photographer take pictures of special moments, but they will also need to capture your memories and tell your own unique story. The team at Twinpalms Events can assist with experienced photographers and videographers to ensure your precious memories are preserved. In addition, your guests will be furiously snapping away, taking Instagram worthy shots of your idyllic special day in Phuket; so, you might also want to come up with your own wedding hashtag. Apart from this being an efficient way to organise all the pictures taken by guests, your own hashtag will also engage those who are not able to travel and attend your wedding day. Think about unique plus traditional hashtags such as #cheersto(insert bride and groom names) or #(bride and groom names) phuketwedding.

Tailor Your Attire to The Location

It is a good idea to carefully consider the climate and landscape of your wedding day when you are thinking about your dress and groom’s attire. Remember that Phuket can be hot and sometimes humid, so breathable fabrics work will work best for the wedding couple and party. Consider lightweight and airy lace or a shorter gown for a beach front wedding. For the groom, linen trousers and shirts often work well, and fit in with a tropical wedding theme. Also, you should consider if your dress can be folded into a suitcase, otherwise you might have to carry it on the plane and get it pressed or steamed on arrival at your hotel.

Once you have made the major decisions, there are so many exciting details to think about too; would you prefer live music or a DJ? Will you want your ceremony and reception at the same beautiful location? Which native flowers could you consider for your bouquet, table arrangements, etc? For the wedding breakfast would you prefer canapes and cocktails, a buffet reception or an intimate sit-down dinner? What theme will you go with, and will you match your table names, settings and printed materials? The list of choices can go on and on if you require.
