This time last week I attended my first Thai wedding with my best friend Kitkay!
It was quite an experience for us
We didn’t understand what they were saying 99% of the time..
But we thoroughly enjoyed the wedding!!
The first thing we noticed about Thai weddings was the ‘dress code’ on the invitation..
A dress code with specific colours that we were asked to wear for the day.
Hmm I’ve never had that before. Interesting! 😀
Anyone who knows me know that I love a good dress up party. I took on the challenge for the colours of course!
In this particular wedding, it was 50 shades of green, rose gold and glitter gold.
The bride suggested that we wear a knee length dress with the light colours for the engagement party during the day.
You see, we were invited to the morning ceremony which was the engagement party..
They called it engagement party but the couple also exchanged wedding rings.
I must say, we got a bit confused lol
Although we could hardly understand anything, the ceremony was absolutely beautiful!
One thing I noticed was that they were saying thank you a lot with their gesture.. I think because the relatives were blessing them with words and gifts.
We were then invited to a family and friends lunch..
We found a lovely girl who we talked to.
YES! She spoke english..
She was telling us that the wedding is more so Chinese than Thai.
My friend Lar is Chinese Thai so it made sense that her wedding consists of some traditional Chinese wedding culture.
We did notice that there were door games for the groom to go through with his groomsmen in order to get to the bride.. handing out red pockets to the bridesmaids for every obstacles they encountered..
It was so much fun to watch 😀
In the evening, we arrived around 6:30pm with everyone lining up to take photos with the couple before going into the venue.
OMG what a brilliant idea!?
I know for me, it’s always a mission to get a photo with the Mr & Mrs on the wedding day!
They are always super busy doing all the things they need to do.
This means you get a photo with the couple guaranteed!
P.S. My friend had like 4-5 photographers/videographers everywhere they go. I’ve never seen anything like that!
My favourite part comes the food.
OMG it was a cocktail dinner – BUFFET STYLE!
We had to line up for the food because it was so delicious!!
P.S. Having a dress code is a good and bad thing because it looked like a fashion competition on who wore the colour best haha..
Unlike any western weddings I’ve been to, they didn’t have a dance floor for the guests.
The night finished at 9pm sharp.
As you can see this photo above, Kitkay & I decided to have our own dance party outside lol
Loved my first Thai wedding experience with my best friend!!
I would love to go to another one again but hopefully brush up my Thai a bit so I can talk to people..
Congrats again Lar & Loogmoo! We wish you a lifetime of joy & happiness with your marriage.. Hope you are enjoying your honeymoon!
So much love for you guys x
