It's a myth that weddings in Thailand are very expensive and people have to spend in crores to organize one. Ideally, a wedding in Thailand is an experience in itself for the biggest day of your life considering the scenic locales and the availability of world's best stay options / flowers / catering / photographers / entertainment and other arrangements. A wedding in Thailand surely promises to leave behind great memories for not only you but the entire family and relatives. Away from the standard wedding in your city, a destination wedding brings the two families closer and gives much time for both sides to enjoy the functions to the fullest. Any wedding in Jaipur, Udaipur, Goa etc would cost almost the same as a wedding in Thailand, hence giving it an international look. These days the latest trend is that both sides of the family share the cost of the wedding together and ensures a big gala wedding for the bride and groom.
