One of the most spectacular and successful settings for your big fat Indian beach wedding, Thailand needs no introduction. Visited by millions of Indians and immortalized in many Bollywood films, Thai beaches are among the best in the world. From lavish resorts on white sand beaches to luxurious hotels it is the perfect wedding getaway. With its proximity to Kolkata and Chennai and its reasonable hotel rates, Thailand has become a popular choice for Indian couples looking to have an International wedding. With the Andaman Sea to the west and the Gulf of Thailand to the east, Thailand has hundreds of beautiful beach wedding venues that cater to Indian wedding style. Some popular destinations besides Bangkok are Krabi, Hua Hin and Phuket, Rayong, Pattaya and Koh Samui. Thailand over the years has played host to many Indian weddings and today a destination wedding in Thailand is not a very difficult task for Indian couples. Most of the wedding worthy hotels in Thailand serve Indian food on request. Decor and flowers in Thailand is much cheaper than that available in India at the same scale. All you need to do is making sure that you hire the perfect wedding planner and you’re all set to get married in Thai paradise!
One of the most sought after wedding venue in Thailand for Indian weddings is Ao Nang, Krabi. Krabi has many small and wonderful islands with crystal clear water and limestone formations that form the perfect backdrop to your wedding. Have a great time in this almost private setting in the middle of Andaman Ocean with your loved ones. Private under the open sky, you cannot come any closer to the nature. Koh lanta is another great place to have your big fat Indian wedding.

My favourite- Koh Samui is known for its turquoise waters and green landscape. Though getting here might be tougher than travelling to the other locations mentioned (considering there is a ferry involved), once you’re on the island it’s more than worth the effort!

Khao Lak, located just north of Phuket Island on the gorgeous Andaman seaboard, is one of Thailand’s most peaceful resort destinations.
