A wedding day is a day to remember. When couples get married, they want everything to be just right. One of the most important aspects of getting married is choosing a location. For many couples, the right location is one that has beauty and lots of amenities. Koh Samui is one such place. Thailand’s second largest island, it’s a lush place that also offers easy access to the mainland as well as dozens of fabulous resorts. Couples who are planning on getting married in Koh Samui should allow enough time to make sure they have all the details completed at least several weeks before their big day.
When to Get Married
Picking the date is the first thing to do. The best month to get married here depends on several factors. Keep in mind that heavy rain is common in October and November so an outdoor wedding is probably out. From May to August is popular because this is generally when the weather is mild and not too hot. April is usually the hottest month of the year. February and March are also popular as people from other parts of the world love to escape the cold weather in other parts of the world.
Picking a Venue
One of the best things about getting married in this part of the world is that there are so many Koh Samui beach wedding packages available. The island is dotted with dozens of resorts. Many major international hotel chains can be found. They offer world class service, room for dozens of guests and private wedding spaces.

Couples can choose exactly where to hold their wedding.
Many hotels and resorts offer easy access to beaches. It’s a good idea to know exactly what the hotel offers before doing anything else. If your heart is set on an oceanfront location, make sure the location can accommodate your plans. Many venues have wedding plans you can examine in detail that include specifics such as upscale, five course wedding menus.
