Well our wedding has taken a complete unexpected 180... My FI and I have decided to elope and get married on a Beach and explore the Beautiful islands of Thailand! There were so many things working against our wedding in Mexico. It was becoming a huge stress, not only to us, but to our friends and families. My 3 year old nephew was just diagnosed with Leukemia, so we just didn't feel right about planning a joyous event. Not to mention, I couldn't get married without my sister and her kids there. We were hearing complaints from people and we just knew it was causing a lot of problems for some people. Our departure date was changed on us, which changed our wedding date (after we already sent out our invitations).. so frustrating.
So, the other day we got talking and decided to go on a month long excursion to South East Asia and get married in Thailand while we are there! We are both so relieved and excited by this decision!! We plan on going this November. Neither of us have been to this area of the world, so this will be such a romantic and exotic adventure! We plan on having a small AHR when we return and show everyone a slideshow of our trip!
I only have 5 months to research and plan this trip, so if anyone has been to Thailand, I would love any information and recommendations to a romantic, secluded, beautiful area where we can have our intimate ceremony. Typically all we need is a photographer, flowers, a nice resort to stay for 3 nights with a salon for hair/makeup, someone to marry us, and a small boat so we can explore.
This is the most excited I have felt about the planning process, so I know we made the right choice
