During my ten wonderful months in Thailand, I got to go to two weddings.
You can invite whoever to the wedding up until the day which is pretty cool.
Sometimes the weddings also have themes. We didn’t have a theme for the first one.
A previous employee came to our school one day and invited our head teacher and then invited the rest of us.
Luckily, I was going back to the US for a bit so I was able to pick up a dress so I had time to prepare.
Since everyone in Thailand is so small, it was hard finding things that fit me.
November 2019 was my first wedding. Yay. It was cute. Christina, myself, and the head teacher at our school had to take two taxis to get there. The first one dropped us off and we had to call another one cause we were at the wrong address. We were there for about an hour? We mingled, ate, and then we went to Haven. I had my favorite dish there: Pad Thai. Then we went to Jaidee.
The second wedding was in February 2020. The theme was mint so that’s why we all had mint-ish colored dresses. It’s also interesting because the weddings are in the morning and they last all day. Love it.
The second wedding we went to was one for the books. We were invited I think a week before the actual wedding? We all had to get dresses. I found my dress at a shop near my apartment. Christina, Jade, and I went to Central Plaza Rama II to shop for their dresses. Jade had a sprained ankle. Christina was able to find a wheelchair so we wheeled her around the mall.
Being farangs in Thailand was always laughable because we already stood out and then other things would happen that made us stand out more 😂 So it was amusing to see people’s reactions when they saw us wheeling Jade around in a wheelchair hahah.
After a few hours at the mall, we we all ready for the wedding.
Our morning started off at 10am I think? We prepared ourselves by getting a few bottles of Prosecco when we were at the mall.
We met at Christina’s apartment the morning of the wedding. It was convenient because she lived 3 minutes away.
A few hours later we walked to the school. One of our friends let Jade use crutches so once we got there, she was stable.
The wedding was a blast. We sat at a table and of course, drank a bunch of whiskey and ate quantities of food.
The afterparty was great. We went to a restaurant and they had karaoke which was exciting!!! We ate some more food and got to sing our hearts out. Indria, Jade, Christina, and I horribly sang Britney Spears and some other peeps, and of course Jbiebs. We all took turns singing and being obnoxious. We ended the night earlier than usual, around 8 or 9pm? I mean we had been drinking for the whole day and started super early, so I think we did a pretty good job.
That wedding was hands down one of my top ten favorite days in Thailand.
