Every so often, couples discover the concept of humanist weddings from their personal values and wedding visions. What they believe is the meaningful celebration aligns with the type of weddings that represent their love and their unique shared journey. And that was how Kaew and Adrian decided to have their humanist, outdoor wedding in Bangkok.
Besides that heartwarming ambience on the special day, the couple also had Glasshouse Studio providing amazing services and beautiful decorations.
The First Version of Her Wedding Vision
“I’ve always imagined a ceremony in a church. But neither I nor my husband is a Christian. So we took out the impression we had for intimate ceremony to our outdoor wedding. I was very happy with how simple it was. We celebrated, exchanged rings, and took fun pictures with ease. It was a small wedding that I envisioned.”
From the Preparation to the Wedding Day
“We had eight months to plan our wedding and it was stress-free because all we planned were simple. No traditional ceremony. No VIP speaker. While I was preparing for the wedding, my husband was working overseas. So he let me decide on what I wanted and supported my decisions. Everything was so smooth with my monthly plans until the night before the wedding. I was overly stressed. I couldn’t sleep. Most of my concerns were whether my friends who helped on the wedding day would understand my vision. There was also an unexpected mistake. The microphone wire wasn’t long enough for me to be where we supposed to stand. Everyone had to gather closely around us. And it was kind of a happy incident. The vibe turned warm and intimate, unlike the typical weddings that separated guests and couples with stages. In the end I was so in love with how everything turned out.
Experiences of Wedding Guests
“Everyone loves it. It was new for my Thai friends because most weddings were in hotel ballrooms. They had stages, many-tier cakes, and things like that. Nothing intimate like our wedding. So they were very happy to attend. My husband’s friends were happy too. And our family members were given great care by the venue staffs. So they were happy with the event and weren’t feeling exhausted. We didn’t have to worry about anything and could enjoy ourselves too.”
Planning DIY Wedding vs Hiring Wedding Planner
“From my experience, I totally recommended couples to hire a wedding planner. I thought this was an easy task. I worked a project manager before. Pulling off a wedding should be easy. But it was totally the opposite. Surely, every problem has solutions to it. But on the wedding day, there are many people involving in every part. You can’t take care of anything or work behind the scene anymore, no matter how well you’ve planned your day. If you have a wedding planner, you can set your mind at ease and say goodbye to your worries.”
Advantages of Humanist Weddings
“The whole day was so warm, so intimate. Not a single second of my wedding was wasted. In the morning, we had a small ceremony for our families. After that, we celebrated with our friends. I took care of my peeps. And my husband took care of his, since they came from Singapore. No one felt uncomfortable around anyone. With humanist weddings, you can cherish every single moment. And you take away only beautiful memories with you, without those hours of awkward smiles with strangers.
“Everyone in our wedding was an important someone from some parts of our lives. We had friends from elementary schools to our colleagues. When we looked around, we saw those people we shared memories with. That’s such an amazing feeling. And even better, they all came to celebrate with our love and our friendship. The whole event wasn’t formal at all. So we could really enjoy and absorbed these happy feelings.”
