Why Use the Resorts Wedding Planner?

Planning your wedding at home can be stressful enough. When you're planning a beach wedding and reception in a destination hundreds or thousands of miles from home, you won't be able to visit the venues in person. You can't discuss all the details with the vendors in person. Hiring a wedding specialist is the most sensible option.

Your Dream Beach Wedding Day

Wedding specialists in Phuket are familiar with the local vendors since they have working relationships with them. They know who the most reputable photographers and florists are, and may be able to get lower prices for you. Another reason to hire a wedding specialist to plan your ceremony and reception is that you can have a package that the resort offers, or you can have the wedding planner customize your ceremony and reception.

A wedding coordinator in Phuket is familiar with the celebrants that are nearby and the type of wedding that each of them will officiate at. It's essential to choose the celebrant that expresses your faith and will conduct the ceremony accordingly. Some couples want a traditional Thai service while others prefer a Western tradition; some may want to combine the Christian and Buddhist faiths.

Best Time For a Phuket Wedding

One of the questions most couples want the answer to is what the best time to plan a beach ceremony in Phuket is. Phuket has two seasons; the rainy season and the dry season, also knowns as High Season that extends between November and April. Peak Season is January and February. High Season is the ideal time for a beach wedding, but there may be other considerations such as budget or work commitments.

During High Season, accommodation, airfare, food, and drink prices are higher than they are in the off-season. However, you'll have pleasant, sunny days. If you don't mind intermittent showers and the occasional storm, you can still manage a lovely beach wedding. Cloudy days still make an excellent backdrop for your nuptials.
