Getting Married in Hua Hin

It’s close to Bangkok.
There are lots of reasons, but the ones that stand out are proximity to Bangkok. You can get to Hua Hin by car. And all your guests can easily get transfers to Hua Hin direct from the airports or Bangkok. It take a few hours by car, and it’s the closest beach resort town to Bangkok.
Hua Hin has sunny weather almost all year round and it’s pretty close to perfect. So chances are that it won’t rain on your wedding day in Hua Hin.
The best time to visit Hua Hin and hold the destination wedding of your dreams is from November to February. The humidity is high from March to May and the chance of rain is higher in August and September.
Hua Hin is definitely a more affordable option for a destination wedding in Thailand. From the airport, a private car or van will cost 2000-3000 baht (about US$63-$95) for you and your guests. Hua Hin is the closest beach to Bangkok. Depending on traffic, it will take 2-4 hours.
Wedding packages are more wallet-friendly than some of the high end resorts dotted around Thailand. However, you can definitely still have a luxury beach wedding in Hua Hin.
There are some amazing beachfront resorts with incredible ocean views, lush gardens, and romantic pool villas that are perfect for your special day.
The InterContinental Hua Hin Resort is on the beach, has luxury accommodation, beautiful manicured lawns lined with fragrant frangipanis, a cosy and chic open air bar overlooking the ocean, and a colonial-style guest house you can rent for your wedding — think coastal vintage charm with a layer of luxury.
