    First, congratulation on your upcoming wedding.

    I don't really have a lot of detail on my web site yet on weddings, but I do have a photo story on the wedding of my parents. That will help you for a start. I will later try and get some more information for you.
    Support the forum and chat rooms and buy computer software and books for learning Thai at

    so happy!

    Hello Kevin,

    A search at on "thai wedding" reveals quite a list on the subject. There're some very detailed sites, unfortunately they're in Thai.

    You may want to take a look here

    As a note, not all Thais have the traditional weddings (which is much related to Budhism). It is a good idea to check with your fiance regarding her family's believe systems and values. People acts according to believes, even different people in the same country prefers different ways to do things. I know of quite a lot of Thais who have weddings in Churches (although some are not Christians, they feel it's "romantic" to do so.

    Best Wishes.
