Wedding Custom in Thailand

Any Thai couple’s wedding day is a major event in their lives. Typically, the couple kneel in front of their parents or elders to express love and ask for forgiveness before an aged person, known as a’ sai sin’, is invited to bless the couple. The newlyweds are also dipped in divine fluids and tied to pieces of bright string,” sai sin,” around their ankles. Numerous relatives, friends and effectively- wishers may tie the series bracelets for them as well, adding to the joyful atmosphere of the occasion.

Before the actual wedding, a number of senior members of both families and friends are invited to attend a ceremonial Rod Nam Sang () where they will pour holy water from a conch shell over the couple’s hands. The couple will press their hands together and bow to show respect to their guests.

Since this ritual seems to be a very serious affair, many people may find it to be a little intimidating, but it’s actually just a customary way for the bride and groom to show their appreciation for their help and respect for their elders. During the ceremony, the couple will also take a merit gift thai brides for you, usually in the form of money, to give to the monks.

Depending on the region, a traditional wedding can have different religious elements. For example, in the South, where Buddhism is a major religion, it’s customary for couples to invite nine monks to their ceremony and to have a Khan Maak procession.
