For couples who are planning to have their wedding in Koh Samui, there are some things you should know before we get into the advantages of holding your big day on the island. The first thing you should keep in mind is that the island is a tropical one and there is a big chance that it might rain. If you are open to the possibility then all you can do is to pick a month that it is less likely to rain. The next thing you should know is that there is no such thing as private beach wedding in the island. The beaches in Koh Samui are all open to the public. There are secluded ones and beaches that are not on the map but these are still not private beaches. There is a big possibility that there might be other people on the beach watching or even videotaping the event.
Advantages of a Koh Samui wedding
There are many villas in the island that will be able to accommodate you and your guests during the wedding. There are many options to choose from and you could chose the ones that are more private than the others to make sure there will be not a lot of people watching during the ceremony unless the crowd is fine with you.
One of the best advantages of having your wedding in a villa or resort is that you could book accommodations a few days before and after the wedding. This will serve as a family time and a bonding experience for the whole family before you start a family of your own. If you are aiming for a small wedding then this is the best option for you because resorts and villas will most likely not charge you anything if the number of guests meets the normal occupancy rate of the place. This does not mean that you have to invite a lot of guests because there are Koh Samui wedding resorts and villas only houses a dozen or two at a time for more privacy.
