Yes, you certainly can!
However, most couples choose to celebrate their marriage in Thailand with a symbolic (non-legal) wedding ceremony before
(or after), doing the legal stuff at home.  

Absolutely!
We will hold your hand through the entire process which we have summarised below (allow up to four business days, excluding travel time to complete this process):
+ You will need to visit Bangkok to undertake the legalities. 
+ We will organise the delivery of the necessary translated documentation.
+ You must have a Thai Council Representative present at your wedding – this will be organised by Wed Away.

Tropical Thailand is fabulous all year round! But a little local knowledge goes a long way when choosing the right location for your wedding - that’s where we come in. As a guide, November - April are the best months to marry in Phuket, Khao Lak, Krabi & Koh Yao Noi. December - July is ideal for Koh Samui. Contact us to discover the perfect location for your wedding - regardless of the time of year.

We will always discuss a bad weather back up plan with you – one that takes into consideration your budget and vision. You’ll be celebrating, whatever the weather.

Yes, we can!
The people of Thailand are warm and welcoming and your wedding will be a beautiful and symbolic celebration of your marriage. You will need to complete the legalities at home - which works perfectly with the Wed Away ethos and is what most couples do.

The world is your oyster and travel is our passion. From Bali, to Vietnam, the Philippines and beyond, we would love to find out more about where you would like to Wed Away. Contact us

Each of the 2, 3 and 5-day experiences include our Full Wedding Planning & Design service. You can review this here. 
Depending on the length of your Wed Away experience, several exciting optional experiences and excursions are included in your itinerary. These options have been carefully researched and curated by Wed Away, but they are flexible too – we can tailor your Wed Away to suit your specific requirements and budget.

Wed Away can arrange all ground transfers and accommodation for you and your guests, in Thailand. Our custom wedding website platform captures your guest’s arrival information and preferences during the RSVP process.  
We do not book or manage flights for the simple reason that you and your guests should book flights from your port of origin and be able to access the best pricing from your own country or departure location.

Your payments will be staggered - starting with an initial deposit to kick off the planning process. An example payment schedule is outlined below - based on you booking 12 months’ prior to the start date of your Wed Away experience/itinerary.
+ Initial deposit - upon booking.
+ Second deposit - three months after your deposit payment.
+ Payment for guest accommodation booked through Wed Away - 6 months prior to check-in.
+ Final Payment - one month prior to your Wed Away experience. 
Your personalised payment schedule will be outlined in our full proposal. We offer both AUD and THB payment facilities, including credit and debit card / PayPal payments and bank transfers. 

Wed Away prides itself on making sure you know when and where every dollar is spent. All charges are fully disclosed, discussed and finalised one month prior to your Wed Away.

Yes. All pricing quoted by Wed Away is all-inclusive of local taxes and service charges and therefore, net. What you see is what you pay!

Wed Away has its Head Office in Queensland, Australia. Our wedding work takes us around Australia and New Zealand and of course, you will find us on the ground in Thailand, creating weddings.

The sooner the better!
The earlier you book your Wed Away, the sooner we can start helping you plan. Booking early puts you in the best position to secure your preferred venue/s and suppliers, as the best locations and limited good suppliers book are very popular and in high demand.

That’s easy! 

1. A team collaborating with you from start to finish
Wed Away - One point of contact from start to finish, which means a more seamless planning process and a lovely personal connection, with your planner when you arrive in Thailand.  
Resort Planner - Over the period of planning your wedding it is very likely that you will work with numerous planners. Resort planners move from resort to resort regularly for career opportunities. Our experience is that these changes usually mean having to re-explain your expectations and vision each time someone new takes over responsibility for your wedding, which is stressful and can lead to things being missed or misinterpreted.

2. A wedding experience, not just a wedding day

Wed Away - Planning, design, styling and coordination of your special day, along with your pre and post-wedding events. Your wedding is too good to last for just one day!
Resort Planner - Your resort planner’s only concern is coordinating your wedding day at the resort. All styling, extra activities and transfers need to be organised by yourselves. If the resort does help you to book extras, they will outsource the work and charge a mark-up fee.
   
3. A Wedding Planner helping you to manage your budget
Wed Away - An independent wedding planner working on your behalf. We always keep your budget and expectations in mind. All suppliers and venues chosen for your Wed Away are carefully vetted and coordinated by us. We negotiate to host your wedding and parties based on bringing your preferred suppliers in at no extra cost, which sometimes requires paying a small higher fee or reaching a certain value on their food and drinks provided. But trust us, this works out a lot cheaper in the long run.
Resort Planner - Packages are set with little flexibility, room for personalisation or negotiation on price. High markups are common for outsourced suppliers (for example if you ask the resort to organise tours or transfers on your behalf).
     
 4. We care about you and your guests
Wed Away - We work to support your guests to have a great time whilst in Thailand for your wedding. This includes being the central point for their questions and helping with accommodation recommendations to fit in with their budget.  
Resort Planner - No involvement with guests not staying at the resort.

A note about DIY weddings in Thailand
Being your own wedding planner in Thailand can be tricky and costly. Our supplier relationships, experience and local knowledge will save you time and money.

Our Core Values explain what makes us different to the other options you may be considering for your destination wedding in Thailand. 

Our little black book consists of a carefully vetted network of local and international, preferred suppliers whose work we admire and professionalism we respect. 
Our experience in choosing quality suppliers for your Wed Away means you will avoid the disappointments that comes from working with suppliers who are unable to deliver the service you have paid for and expect.

Wed Away’s philosophy is inclusive welcoming all. If we are not familiar with the traditions of your culture, we will learn all we can about them so we can help incorporate their meaningful details into your wedding.
And we love all styles of weddings, from modern to traditional. We love to listen to your story and create your personal celebration showcasing your preferred style.

Yes we do. The nannies we work with are English speaking, fully qualified and vetted. Our nannies charge by the hour, with prices on application.

Absolutely! The degree to which you are involved is totally up to you. 

Of course! At Wed Away we love tropical lush weddings, but what we love even more is collaborating with you on the style and design of your wedding. We will learn more about your style during our virtual design session and then create a mood board for you so you can be sure we understand your vision.

Yes, the crafted itineraries shown are just an example of what your wedding experience can be. We are known for crafting bespoke experiences, catering to your personal style, taste, values and traditions.

Of course! Contact us for a customised proposal and quote. 

Of course, although we specialise in multi-day wedding experiences, we are happy to use all our skills and plan your magical day.

We would love to see you no later than three days before the start of your wedding itinerary. When you should arrive, will be confirmed with you when you book. If that doesn’t work with your schedule –
talk to us! You will find us very accommodating. 

Yes! Both boutique, quiet resorts and hotels offer unique experiences, however, a private villa wedding really does deliver the WOW factor.  
A private villa is perfect if you desire a luxurious, intimate wedding experience without the curfews and rules that often come with resorts. Midnight swim under the stars anyone?
As part of the wedding venue selection process, we discuss with you the pros and cons of all venue types.

Absolutely! We can coordinate with your chosen accommodation so you and your guests can enjoy their complimentary or pre-booked events in a semi-private area. For example;
A resort hosted White Party themed night where happy hour cocktails or discounted drinks are extended beyond the usual allocated times. Complimentary entertainment is provided with a fire show and DJ along with white themed decoration and furniture. 
Wed Away will create a semi-private area with a sign at the event and resort reception advising guests where to go, design bespoke menus and welcome flyers for the reserved tables, provide personalised wristbands for guests to purchase their drinks at the bar, while Wed Away staff monitor your drinks tab behind the bar. We can take care of extra catering orders for you, like delicious Thai tapas. This is a great welcome night event for you and your guests.

It’s a party, isn’t it? The more the merrier, unless you want it to be super intimate, which is fabulous too!
We put the same passion, time and effort into planning and designing a wedding whether it's for 30 or 100 guests. Our standard rates service up to 100 guests. For groups of 100 guests or more, our fee increase is in the vicinity of 15% of the overall event value.

We recommend that you contact us as soon as you have decided to get married in Thailand so we can lock in your wedding venue nine-twelve months out from your date. This will help you to secure your preferred venue and suppliers.
Once your venue is booked, you should send out your Save the Dates, – to give your guests time to make the necessary travel arrangements. You can send out your invites a few months later. Your RSVP date will ideally be three months before your wedding date. This will help with accommodation bookings and finalising your RSVP’s to arrive at your final guest count.

Ideally, 1 month prior - giving our suppliers sufficient time to be organised ahead of your big day.
However, we know that hosting a wedding overseas comes with its own challenges and circumstances can change. Should this happen to you, we will always strive to be accommodating where we can.

We can handle bookings for your guests, but they are also welcome to look after this themselves in the following ways:

+ Your guests can book through their own travel provider.
+ Guests can book and pay directly with Wed Away at a discounted room rate, via a link on your personalised website. 
+ Your guests can book through their own travel provider.
+ We will require your guests to provide their booking reference and location up to 8 weeks prior to their arrival in Thailand for logistical purposes.
+ You can also pay for all, or some of your guests to stay at a chosen venue. The resort will kindly block the rooms in advance for you. Deposit payments are generally required six months prior to arrival to guarantee accommodation reservations. 

Everything about your Wed Away getaway for your guests is in one place; how great does this sound! 
Once we have your Wed Away booked in, we will provide you with a personal wedding website and app. And once it’s customised with some cute couple photos of you both to match the style of your wedding, we will walk you through the features and show you how to share the links with your guests.
 Things you will love about the website and app include:
+ Your website, designed to match your wedding day style; whether it’s beachy, tropical, nautical, classic or something else. Your colours and even a monogram can be included.
+ All of the details of your day in one convenient place – hotel recommendations, your Wed Away Itinerary, special requests, photos and more.
+ Communication with your guests made easy and they can even RSVP via the website too.
+ Connect your website and app to your online gift registry of choice (read more about 'why a registry is a great idea for your Wed Away').
- All the information your guests need at their fingertips; which will be super useful before and during your Wed Away.
+ Your guests can share photos from your Wed Away with you via the app; what a great way to save your precious memories!
