Perhaps one of the most beautiful places you can ever be when visiting Thailand is the stunning island of Koh Samui. From its magnificent beaches to its vibrant forests, the island is truly a natural paradise that everyone should explore at least once in their lifetime. It is so beautiful that some people decide to set up what is perhaps the most crucial ceremony in their entire lives – their weddings.

Are you interested in hosting your wedding in Koh Samui? You can do just that! Did you also know that there are many wedding styles that can take place here? That’s right. Not only are you given the ability to get married the western way, but even Thai and more.

In this article, we will share with you three different wedding types you can expect to find in Koh Samui:

1. Islamic Weddings

If you’ve ever explored Koh Samui, you’ll find a mosque there named the Masjid Nurul Ihsan. It is located around the area of Hua Thanon, which is a small fishing town.

If you’re a Muslim and want to arrange for an Islamic wedding, you can come here and meet up with the officials. There, you’ll be able to set up everything, from the dowry presentation, the signing of the wedding certificate, to even ordering of Halal food. You don’t necessarily have to meet up with the people there directly, as you can easily opt for wedding planners to carry out what you are planning.

2. Thai Weddings

Since you’re going to be wedded in Thailand, enjoying a Thai-style wedding might be in your bucket list. If it is, there are plenty of options here since you’re in the right country, after all.

Seeing that Thailand is a Buddhist country, you might be worried that you’ll need to be a Buddhist to enjoy such a wedding. Fortunately for you, that isn’t necessary. In other words, you can still enjoy the beautiful blessings and activities that are present in a typical Thai wedding, regardless of your religious background. If you wanted to, you could combine some aspects of a Thai wedding into a western wedding as well, such as the water-blessing ceremony.

3. Western Weddings

Perhaps the most common wedding ceremony anywhere would be the western-style weddings, something which is also offered here!

The reason a western wedding here is so popular is perhaps that getting married on the beach with a ceremony that’s familiar to them is an extremely enticing prospect. If you’re interested in a wedding ceremony here, there are plenty of wedding planners that will help you get what you want! Some of the hotels and resorts here also specialize in such events, allowing you to enjoy a beach wedding within their premises and their help.


At this point, you now know that Koh Samui can cater to your preference for a wedding style. This means that not only will you enjoy a wedding that’s either familiar to you or entirely new, but one surrounded by stunning nature to make the entire experience and ceremony even more memorable and unique.
