This week, you’ll get an inside glimpse on what goes into a traditional Thai wedding. Marz and the Charizma crew traveled to Victoria’s Beau Jolie Grand Ballroom for Josh and Wisa’s special day. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful – the guests were all smiles and taking tons of pictures as rings were exchanged, followed by a traditional Thai water ceremony. If you don’t know about the water ceremony, in Thai culture its technically the most important part of the wedding. This is the time where the couple actually becomes husband and wife. Each of the elder guests approach the water pouring table and offer kind words as they pour holy water from a conch shell over the bride and groom’s hands.
From there, the celebration was moved into the Grand Ballroom where friends and family were treated to traditional Thai dancing, incredible food, and of course, a night to remember. For this wedding, Charizma provided uplighting for the room, a photo booth for guests to have fun, DJ entertainment, and a custom monogram written in Thai that was shined on the dance floor. We played traditional Thai music as everyone danced and smiled, then had some fun with the American classics to finish off the night. Josh and Wisa were ecstatic!
This was Charizma’s first traditional Thai wedding and it was an absolute blast. We love learning about and engaging in new cultural experiences and really getting a feel for how it all works. We pride ourselves on our ability to keep with tradition but still make it fun for everyone. We truly hope that we will get to experience another Thai wedding in the future!
