“I choose you” package
Thai Buddhist Wedding – Blessing and Merit Making (mini package)
Are you looking for an oriental way to celebrate your wedding? We will turn your dream into reality! We would like to offer you one of the most precious moment together, the memorable Thai Buddhist Wedding Ceremony!
The ceremony normally takes place in the morning at a temple. We choose Wat Benjamaborpit also known as Marble Temple, one of the Royal temples to be the holy wedding place for the newly wed.
The process is that 1-2 days before the wedding day, we will take you to try out the traditional Thai wedding attire, this is so you can decide what you will be wearing and they can adjust the costume for both of you to fit you well. (shoes not included)
The Groom and the Bride are dressed in elegant traditional Thai wedding costume and wear Flower Garlands (every Thai wedding couple has to wear the garland made of jasmines, one each)
The Groom and the Bride get picked up from the hotel by air-conditioned and transfer to Temple. The photographer will meet you at the Marble Temple, one of the most beautiful temples in Bangkok.
Once you arrive the temple, you will be taking some shots before entering the ceremony. Our staff will greet you there and help you out at temple.
The Bride and the Groom enter the temple main hall and greet the monks
The couple enters the main hall and pray homage to the Buddha by lighting of candles and incense.
You will be seated in front of monks, (please do not point your feet to them)
When it is the appointed time, monks start Buddhist chanting and blessing, echoing throughout the hall.
Blessing takes around 30 minutes. The Groom and Bride offer alms or food to monks. The head monk will then sprinkle holy water lightly on your heads and all over your body and prayers will be said for your own family and friends.
Monks wear a Mongkol (Buddhist white rope) on your heads joining both of you together as a sign of starting life together forever. Monks will bless you by putting 3 dots of white powder on your foreheads. Blessing is over, Bride and Groom take a break before continue taking photos inside main hall and around temple. A CD Photos (unlimited pictures) will be taken and given to you 3-4 days after the wedding. If you are not in Bangkok, CD will be sent to your hotel in Thailand or back to your home (postage not included).
Unlike many traditional wedding ceremonies of the west, in Buddhism there is no kissing allowed inside the temple, in front of the Monks or at the closing of the ceremony.
Please do not point your feet to the Buddha/Monks when you are at temple.
