From the big fat Indian wedding, the new lingo is the destination wedding. The big fat weddings have become a more personalized affair as a destination wedding requires flight tickets and accommodations. If you are doing a destination wedding outside India it becomes even more personalized. You only take along with close relatives and friends. The numbers vary from 50 to 200 people and then there are a few weddings where there are 500 people. But 500 people destination weddings are few. In this blog, we will only talk about an international destination wedding and that too in Thailand. The Indian Destination Wedding in Thailand is becoming quite popular with Indian families.
They have all the reasons to like Thailand too. World-class hotels and resorts with some offering private beach for ceremonies. You can fully book some of the resort for your family and make it a super-private affair. To make Indian Destination Wedding in Thailand most of the properties offer all materials for Indian rituals. The range of services includes Pandit Jee to Mandap Decorations to flower decoration to a Ghodi. Hotels are offering various Indian cuisines with the option of international food as well. We at mastyatri.com even offer a full package with airfare booking, visa, accommodations, and transportation. We will now give you a rough idea of how to create a budget for the Indian Destination Wedding in Thailand. This blog will also be sharing venue information and location information to make it easy for you to choose.
It is the responsibility of the host to take care of all the `Baratis’ that includes transportation. In the case of a destination wedding, transportation also includes airfare. The above-mentioned cost you cannot avoid. The minimum cost to reach Thailand will come to INR 45,000-50,000. The airfare cost mentioned is from A-Cities. The cost of airfare from B-Cities like Kolkatta and Kochi will vary between INR 7,000-10000. The other thing you should be aware of is that you will be booking flight tickets between 50-100 pax. These bookings come under corporate bookings and you cannot buy online. You should preferably buy with the help of a consultant or book directly with the airline. The cost of tickets is always high when you book under corporate booking, why, you can read the full blog here.
Now, for those who want to add more style and finesse to it, you can choose to go by a premium airline in a business class. You can also book a luxury resort or heritage property for the marriage. Add a limousine pick-up the cost will add up very fast. These add-ups might increase the budget but it is worth the money.
Thailand offers VIP fast track immigration lane if you are opting for Visa on arrival.
