Thai marriage customs

Family acceptance is important in Thailand, and it’s common for families to organise their children’s relationships. The bride’s families may meet with the groom’s family to discuss how much bride is necessary and to see if their son’s son would approve of their son marrying their child in the process of Sin Sod.

A pair will gather together at a water-pouring table ( dtang rot naam ), where older members of both families and special guests will anoint their foreheads with a white thread, which monks typically do at the previous ceremony. Afterward, they will receive two mong kols (ceremonial Thai headpieces ) to wear, which will serve as additional emblarage for their union

The groom wo n’t be permitted to enter the bride’s home until he passes through a number of symbolic doors or gates when the khan maak procession arrives at the bride’s residence. The girls and her family typically construct these, which lovingly prevent him from passing simply while the crowd shouts him on with plenty of fun and whimsy.

The pair will bow down and pray for their success and happiness before the necklace exchange. The bride and groom may also give a local temple a significance present in the form of money or food during this ceremony to thank the church for its blessings. Rod Nam Sang is a term used by many contemporary spouses to symbolize the beginning of their novel existence along.
