Chiang Mai's wedding season, spanning from October to February, embodies an enchanting allure for couples seeking a memorable ceremony. This period boasts a blissful climate, averaging temperatures between 22°C to 30°C, creating a picturesque setting for outdoor celebrations. Outside of the city can experience slightly lower temperature as you're surrounded by the mountains and natural forests.

Venue & Vendor Options

Ideal for outdoor weddings, Chiang Mai's wedding venues epitomize elegance with a touch of cultural heritage. From historic temples exuding serenity to luxurious resorts nestled amidst lush landscapes, the city offers a diverse array of settings to match your dream celebration. Accomplished vendors in Chiang Mai provide exceptional services ranging from skilled florists, string quartet bands, to candid photographers. You also have options to fly in vendors from other cities with slightly higher investment to cover their travel. We recommend planning your wedding in Chiang Mai 12-16 months in advance to allow enough time to secure the venue and all vendors you'd love to work with, as well as for you and your beloved guests to plan their trips.

Planning an unforgettable wedding in Chiang Mai, Thailand's cultural haven, can be both exciting and overwhelming experiences due to different logistics and arrangements needed.
