Considering an exotic destination to say “I do?" The Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve – located in Krabi, Thailand, along the shores of the Andaman Sea – is offering a unique Midnight Wedding package.
On the big day, after enjoying a dinner reception with family and friends at one of the resort’s luxurious fine-dining restaurants, you will all walk under a starry sky to the midnight blessing ceremony held at an airy wooden pavilion. Lit candles are important symbols of enlightenment and unity in Thai culture. Thus, a wall of 2,000 candles and floating candles in the surrounding waters illuminate the magical setting.
The celebration continues with a Champagne reception where you and your guests will enjoy a custom three-tier cake, and concludes with paper lanterns released to the heavens, carrying well wishes for the newlyweds' life together. Everyone will gather once again for brunch the following day.
Additional highlights of the package include:
*An onsite wedding planner
*Three-night accommodations in the Royal Beach Villa for the bride and groom
*50-minute spa treatment for the couple
*Hair and makeup for the bride
The Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve boasts 54 spacious villas with private plunge pools as well as incredible tropical garden and ocean views. You and your nearest and dearest can explore coral reefs, lush rainforests, waterfalls, and nearby Similian Islands.
The rate for the Midnight Wedding package starts at $18,700 for 30 guests. It is recommended that couples ask the requirements necessary to properly register marriages; property staff can offer assistance with this matter. For more information, visit Phulay Bay, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.
