Bride: My father wanted a beach/destination wedding for me; however initially the location was not decided. We eventually chose Hua Hin, Thailand for our wedding because in April 2011 I got engaged to Ruchin while both our families were on vacation there. Therefore, it just seemed right to have the wedding in Hua Hin as I have an emotional attachment to the city.
Groom: Since the guests from Saira’s side were flying in from Delhi, I thought that Hua Hin would be a perfect location for the wedding because of the short travel distance from the airport. In addition, the guests from my side would be travelling from Bangkok and it would be convenient for us to transport our guests from Bangkok to Hua Hin.
We used the Sheraton Resort & Spa Hua Hin for all our functions
There were approximately 300 guests – both sides combined.
Our most memorable moments were the Pool Party and the Black Vegas theme party.
We had nine functions over four days. The first day we had a dinner for close family members, this was followed the next day by a Pool Party and the Black Vegas theme party. The baraat, mangal phere and reception dinner came next. And on the final day we had the Anand Karaj, doli and a farewell dinner.
