Phalakone & Chansouda’s traditional Laotian Luang Prabang Wedding in Laos at the gorgeous Villa Ban Khoy
Laos is a captivating destination for a wedding celebration. Its natural beauty and cultural richness make it an excellent choice for destination weddings.
With stunning backdrops for photos and opportunities for adventure, Laos is a dream location for couples who love to explore.
Laos is a unique destination, and I can’t wait for upcoming weddings in Vientiane and Vang Vieng in early 2024!
In Laos, weddings are about the union of two individuals and the coming together of families and communities. The traditional Baci or Soukhuan ceremony is a beautiful way for people to express their love, support, and good wishes for the couple.
During the Baci ceremony, the couple sits in the center, surrounded by their loved ones. Their family tie white strings around their wrists to symbolize their well-wishes and blessings. The strings bring the couple good fortune, happiness, and protection.
The Baci ceremony takes place a few days before the wedding day at the bride’s home. It includes speeches and blessings by elders and traditional music to celebrate the joyous occasion.
The Baci ceremony is a beautiful tradition and a symbol of the strong sense of community and togetherness in Lao culture. It brings people together to celebrate and support the newlyweds as they embark on their journey of love and companionship.
Luang Prabang is a unique destination for its rich culture and breathtaking natural beauty. Northern Laos boasts the best-preserved city in Asia on a peninsula surrounded by the majestic Mekong River. Its serene, friendly atmosphere makes it a popular destination for Laos wedding photographers.
