Thai Wedding Ceremony
If you are considering Thailand for your wedding destination, it is most likely because you enjoy what the country has to offer. Thai weddings are rooted in respect, respect for Buddha, respect for the elders and respect for each other.
Buddhist monks are invited to chant blessings over the couple for their marriage, after which the couple makes merit by offering food to the monks. The couple is then joined in a ceremony called "Sai Mongkol" where a string headpiece which has been blessed by monks, will be placed over the couple's head by an elder member of the family, symbolizing two individuals being joined together for life. Three dots are then painted on the couple's foreheads to symbolize the Triple Gem: The Buddha, The Dharma, and The Sangha.
This will be followed by a heartwarming ceremony called “Rod Nam Sang” where family and friends pour water over the couple’s hands and bless them with words and well-wishes, making the ceremony a touching and personal experience for everyone. Water is important symbolism in Thai culture, and it means the washing away of old and bad, so the marriage life will start new and fresh.
