Thinking of having a Muslim wedding in Thailand? Muslim weddings are very traditional and unique. The family of the groom would normally seek a bride for the groom. A Thai Muslim wedding could take the form of a traditional Muslim wedding with the performing of the religious rites. This Muslim wedding could then be followed by a non-religious ceremony depending on what is required by the family or the groom himself. This as an example could take the form of having a ceremony on one of Thailand’s pristine beaches such as in Phuket or Hua Hin or even next to a waterfall or any other choice of location in Thailand. Islamic tradition dictates that to perform a Muslim wedding, both parties to the ceremony must be Muslim. Should one of the parties not be Muslim the Imam would have to ordain the non-Muslim in a local mosque into the faith.
This normally takes the form of the non-Muslim stating that he or she believes in one God and one God only through the teachings of his Prophet Mohammed. Should both the bride and groom be of the Muslim faith, the bride has to obtain a letter from her family stating their agreement to the marriage. This letter would be presented to the Imam at the Mosque to fulfill the legal process of the Muslim Wedding.
