Bride Customs in Thailand

In Thailand, the custom of getting married is a community event. Spouses may be arranged by parents, and a wedding may win the respect of both his bride’s and his own families. This can be seen in the Sin Sod dowry and the custom of giving the princess’s home presents of cash and golden. This custom is viewed as a sign of the vicar’s interpersonal standing and success.

A partners will invite an odd number of monks to their house on the wedding day so they can conduct Rod Nam Sang, a unique blessing ritual. The brides will receive waters blessing from the monks, who also wish them happiness and success in their marriage.

The man and his family may arrive at the bride’s home in a march on the wedding day carrying trays of foodstuff, flowers, and other items. Participants in this colorful and enjoyable service sing songs to the beat of long Thai drum. Sin Sod, cash, various gifts, betel nuts, fragrance sticks, candles, grains, and other auspicious items that stand for love, wealth, longevity, or fertility are all included in the trays.

An elder from the groom’s family will put a customary tiara made of cotton on the bride and groom after they have passed the gates of the wedding home. The two faces are finally looped together with a particularly prepared bright thread called” sai monkhon,” which represents the idea that even though they are uniting, they will always be separate companies.
