Founder & Wedding Planner
This is Wannida (She/Her). She’s a founder and a wedding planner of Wonders & Weddings and an introvert who’s deeply in love with genuine conversations, books, hot chocolate, and New York City!
Her intentional and inclusive approaches help couples/marriers celebrate their relationship in meaningful ways. And to create memorable wedding experiences as well as to support gender equality.
After resigning from a job in world-class airline, Wannida decided to start Wonders & Weddings in 2019/2020 with total of five year experiences in event planning and customer services. For these reasons, you can be confident that you’re in great and caring hands when planning your celebrations with Wonders & Weddings!
Story of Wonders & Weddings
Wannida founded this business shortly after planning her own wedding with her husband Christian. During the process, the couple realized traditional, cookie-cutter weddings that they’ve seen weren’t meant for them.
Instead, they picked out some of their favorite wedding traditions and added some personal spark of their own in between. As a result, everyone was super happy with this unique, personal, and touching celebration! (#scheelwedance)
Through the personalized services of Wonders & Weddings, Wannida is determined to deliver the same (and better!) experiences to wedding couples/marriers. By using your own one-and-only story as the inspiration, you’ll be happy and worry-free to celebrate and enjoy every second of your special day with your loved ones.

Humanist Weddings For Gender Equality
While “Humanist Wedding” is still new for Thailand’s wedding industry and the Thai society, they have existed for awhile in other countries. Unconventional couples and marriers have gone their ways to create the weddings that represented them instead of faking their smiles in large ballrooms with hundreds of people they aren’t close to.
In case you’re not familiar, humanist weddings are non-religious wedding ceremonies. They can be arranged anywhere you want and however you want while still celebrate meaningful union of the couple/marriers.
Humanist weddings embrace couples and marries of all genders with open arms. You are no longer limited by religious and cultural beliefs about how your wedding should look and feel like. Therefore, you can celebrate with personalized ceremonies in your unique, personal, meaningful ways.
You will also have the flexibility and freedom to abandon gender-biased wedding traditions. Either you choose to adapt or create your own, we support you all the way!
With humanist wedding, you will set out for the long-lasting memories. To cherish love, values, and equality between each other and your beloved guests.
Frequently Asked Questions
This really depends on the size, style, and the different process we must work on together to plan your wedding. In general, I we recommend that you book at least 3-6 months in advance. If you are planning for a destination wedding, we highly recommend 9-12 months before your wedding date.
If you have thenon-religious and equally-celebrated tradition that you really love, we are happy to help you! In addition, we can also help modify or simplify some traditions to make it meaningful and personal.
At the moment, Wonders & Weddings might be the first business to offer only humanist weddings. However, many vendors have planned this type of weddings on requests as well. We hope there will be more humanist wedding services in Thailand in the future to offer personalized experiences and support gender equality through their creation.
While a humanist wedding cannot provide you the legal registration and rights that you deserve in Thailand, it is a great alternative to celebrate with families and friends. If your home countries have equal marriage, we recommend that you register your marriage at home before your destination weddings.

We believe the micro and small weddings will be more and more popular. Vendors and venues will have safety assessment in place before, during, and after the reception. And the length of the wedding may be shorter than usual to maintain social distancing.
