#11: a Thai wedding

Eight and I have been married over a year now, but we haven’t had a ceremony yet. We never really wanted to have a ceremony. I’d never daydreamed of a white wedding as a kid, and, well, Eight just always assumed he would have a traditional Thai wedding. We happily signed the marriage documents and are registered as married. That was enough for us, but Eight’s family really need the wedding to truly grasp that we are married.

So, we are now planning our wedding, a year and a half after signing the papers.

I always knew weddings would be stressful to plan, but throwing in a language barrier, a different culture and 250 guests you don’t know.. it gets interesting! Very interesting.

We will have our wedding in Eight’s home town, which is a very small village, where they rarely (if ever) see a foreigner. The wedding will be very traditional, and the whole village has been invited.

I’ll keep you posted as we continue planning (don’t worry, it won’t turn into a wedding blog)!!
