Thailand is on a mission to win the hearts of Indian couples looking to have a fairy tale wedding in Asia’s “Land of Smiles”. The country has already started a marketing campaign to attract these high-spending brides and grooms and the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) plans to continue the efforts.
Thai resorts are working overtime to cater to this segment, making special arrangements for religious rituals like providing a Hindu priest to solemnize the ceremony and rebooking guests at sister venues should the couple want to host a larger wedding party. Some hotels have even offered to rent out their entire property for an exclusive event, according to Nikkei Asian Review.
Ayusmita and Arjun are a real-life fairy tale couple who managed to overcome the challenges of long-distance relationships to tie the knot in Thailand. They wore gorgeous blush pink Sabyasachi lehenga outfits with rich Polki and meenakari jewelry, while the groom donned a stunning white, gold and pink sherwani.
Their fairy-tale wedding on the shores of Dusit Thani Hua Hin was a dream come true for both the bride and groom. The couple chose a venue that boasted of the finest luxury amenities, and the entire occasion was a sight to behold against azure blues.
The bride arrived via a boat across the lake and made her entry under an embellished flower-adorned ‘Phoolon ki chaddar’ while the groom got hitched in a turquoise blue vintage car. The wedding was a fairytale that could not have been matched by any other.
