Destination weddings are all the rage nowadays. If money were not an issue, we would probably be seeing many, many more destination weddings happening. Fortunately for the affluent classes, wedding packages from luxury hotels are easily available these days. Properties like the Conrad Koh Samui promise a range of frills and fancies to (a) ensure that you have the magical wedding you have always dreamed of, and (b) see to it that you have all the fun of a wedding and none of the headache. Keeping these two factors in mind the Conrad Koh Samui, a luxury hotel in Thailand, has announced a great new wedding package.

Ready For A Thai Wedding?
If you have so far been iffy about the pros of destination weddings, the wedding package from the Conrad Koh Samui could win you over. The promise is of a truly luxurious wedding in Thailand. And this romantic deal is available from April 2012 onwards. The price pinch is THB120,000. That works out to about US$3,870 – not exactly cheap, but far less expensive than what you might pay for a similar deal elsewhere in the world. The clincher here is that the bride and groom need only be present at the wedding. The luxury hotel’s wedding planners will take care of the rest. Hence, the happy couple will be well rested and ready to celebrate when they walk down the aisle.
What You Should Expect
The highlight of getting married at the Conrad Koh Samui is its location. When you look back at the wedding photos, and spy the pristine sands and the aquamarine ocean, you will be glad that you booked this deal. The subtropical location makes this a win-win deal. But you also have an additional advantage that other destination weddings lack. The staff at Conrad Koh Samui will be taking care of all the pre-wedding preparations as well as all the wedding details. To begin with, bride and groom will be treated to some heavy-duty pampering before the wedding commences. So while the bride sets off for a beauty treatment, to be followed by hair and makeup for her big day, the groom can rest the jet lag away.
The lucky couple will get to choose from a range of wedding locations. You could ask for a romantic outdoor wedding on a private beach, or take the sand-free option by holding the ceremony at a resort that offers spectacular views of the Gulf of Thailand.
What Is Included in Koh Samui Wedding
You will have to bring your own wedding dress and tuxedo, but the smaller details will be readied by the staff of the Conrad Koh Samui. If you though destination weddings are a headache, the luxury hotel may convince you to do a rethink. For starters, you will not have to worry about the bouquet, the groom’s buttonhole, the wedding cake and even hair and makeup. Moreover, the hotel will serve up welcome drinks for up 20 guests as part of the wedding package. Also included is a priest, and a live band to provide the music. And once the wedding is over, the couple get to enjoy a two-night stay at the Oceanview One Bedroom Pool Villa. Isn’t that what happily-ever-afters are made of?
