Wat Dhammadharo

A Traditional Thai Isaan Wedding

I recently went back to Thailand for my little sister’s wedding so I would like to take this opportunity to share my Thai Isaan traditional wedding with you.
The wedding was held at our home town in Chaiyaphum, a small province in Northeast Thailand (Isaan) where both my sister and I were born and raised and where our parents and relatives liveWe decided to do it the old way in which we prepared as much as we could ourselves instead of paying a wedding organiser or catering business. I think this way is more significant and memorable.
