Alternatively, many couples seize the chance of getting married in Thailand as an opportunity to embrace the culture of the Kingdom, including its Buddhist heritage. In a traditional Thai Buddhist ceremony, the bride and groom arrive separately to the venue, before several orange-robed monks perform ancient rituals to bless the union. One such ceremony sees the monks holding a thread tied to the heads of the couple, linking them directly while chanting ancient Sanskrit hymns.
