Get a wedding planner
This is very important especially if you live in a different country and won’t have much time to take care of everything first hand. A wedding planner, preferably a native to Koh Samui, is knowledgeable about every aspect of planning a wedding. Since your marriage ceremony is among the highlights of your life as a couple, it needs to be carefully laid out. It’s nice to think that you can do everything by yourself, but it never hurts to get a helping hand, particularly if you have a very short time to execute everything.
Get a wedding planning with plenty of experience as they know more about which Koh Samui wedding packages will work for you.
Research some Koh Samui wedding venues online
For foreigners who are interested in tying the knot in Samui but don’t have the time for a pre-visit, they can scout for venues online. Most prominent resorts on the island have their own website that has photos of the wedding venue and a list of their Koh Samui wedding packages. Researching online and asking for quotes give you an idea about what to expect. When there are pictures and you get to see the a particular resort’s deals and offers, ideas will flow and will make planning for your wedding more convenient for you and your beloved.
Ask friends who got married in Koh Samui
If you decided to get married on the island, you got the idea somewhere—maybe from friends or a colleague who also tied the knot there. Asked them for suggestions, most friends will be very glad to help and will give you some grain of wisdom you can use while planning for your own wedding.
Schedule a visit on the island
If you’ve just been recently engaged and are looking at the possibility in getting married in Koh Samui Thailand, why not schedule a trip and book a stay in one of its prominent resorts. While on vacation, you can have a grasp of the place’s ambience. You can also look at some Koh Samui wedding packages that they have. You don’t have to commit to anything instantly if you still have plenty of time but it also won’t hurt to look bit by bit.
Visualize your dream wedding
There’s a saying that “If you can’t get there in your mind, you can’t get there.” So once you decide to get married, make it a habit to visualize your big day and write every detail that matters to you—from the flowers to the cake to the food—write all of them down. This is a kind of brainstorming which may sound foolish, but you’ll be grateful later that you did it. Koh Samui weddings offer a lot of possibilities, so take advantage of those.
Choose what type of wedding you will have
Among the things that are different in Koh Samui is that you can choose to have a European theme wedding—-with a conventional ceremony or a Buddhist wedding, similar to the usual island style of tying the knot. Most foreigners opt for a Western style wedding as it is more familiar and more inclined to their native culture. However, there are also those who would want to experience a traditional Thai wedding and learn more about the island culture. You can choose to have that too, if you prefer as there are plenty of Koh Samui wedding packages that include both.
Consider your budget
Like most big events, planning for a wedding will involve a great deal of expense. Before you scout for wedding venues and packages, it is a wise idea to set a price range that you and your loved can agree to. A set budget can make choosing a venue a lot easier and will be your guide so as not to go overboard. It’s not something that you have to worry too much about though as Koh Samui is known worldwide for its reasonably priced weddings.

You can choose flexible venues that are spacious for the wedding ceremony and at the same time romantic and intimate for the honeymoon.
