TAT Promoting Foreign Weddings In Thailand

Early in May, 73 buyers from 15 counties from across the world met with 116 Thai operators in order to promote Thailand’s wedding industry, with the goal of making Thailand, and its hotel wedding events in Phuket, and Koh Samui among other key destinations, one of the sector’s key foreign wedding destinations.

The event, organized by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, dubbed “Amazing Thailand Romance trade Meets” were held in Bangkok and Krabi from the 11th to the 13th of May, and is aimed at promoting the country as a key destination for wedding and honeymoon couples from across the world. Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas) Juthaporn Rerngronasa, the Kingdom already ranks in the six of the global market for weddings and honeymoons, and one of the more popular destinations in the Asia region, with the Middle Eastern and African markets taking notice of the country as well.

She says that, for 2018, the country has set a strong record for selling weddings and honeymoons from major source markets like Argentina, Canada, Brazil, France, the UAE, and the AU, among others. Representatives from these markets joined the event at Bangkok event, meeting with the businesses that represent the local Thai hospitality industry, destination management companies and event planners.

Following the Bangkok event, was the Krabi event, where the global representatives met with Thai sellers from 52 companies, primarily resorts in the South, to promote hotel wedding events in Phuket and across the country.

According to data from the TAT, the global wedding business is valued at around US$298 billion (Bt10.56 trillion), with $80 billion of that coming from overseas weddings.

In order to keep up with the increasing demand for weddings in Thailand, the Krabi Airport is undergoing expansion, scheduled to complete sometime in 2019, which will double the airport’s current capacity of 4.5 million annual arrivals.

Currently, there are about 30 daily flights to the province, covering domestic airlines, international airlines and charter flights. By the end of 2018, Qatar Airways will be opening a direct air route from Doha to Krabi, with four flights weekly.

South Korea’s Asiana Airlines is also looking to add Krabi to their list of destinations, but is currently unable to do because of the airport’s limited capacity.

Red Rooster Saved A Couple’s Wedding

A couple who recently got married is now thankful to a popular fast food chain for saving their wedding day from turning into a disaster. Newlyweds in Australia know the importance of a wedding catering in Sydney or else the guests will go hungry. The unfortunate happened to Jessica Fleifel and her husband, Henry during their wedding day.

They have 100 guests waiting to eat during their wedding but their catering was not present. The bride’s stepfather, Gary Dring, helped to save the day.

Jessica and Henry were enjoying their entire ceremony and while signing the wedding certificate, they realized that the catering service they have contacted will leave them hanging. This is despite having constant communication through emails.

Jessica said that they were panicking and don’t know what to do and how to feed the guests. It was when Gary decided to call Red Rooster.

Gary recalled calling out of panic because they don’t have food, cutlery and crockery to use. Upon calling, he shared their situation which involves a hundred hungry wedding guests.

Lurnea Red Rooster did not hesitate with the assistance of their manager during that time, Stephanie. The fast food chain was able to cook 10 whole roasted chickens and four kilos of garden salad as well as coleslaw. They did it within 20 minutes.

Gary came to the shop to pick up the food and the entire staff was already waiting complete with the food, cutlery and crockery. They even offered to deliver the entire load to the venue where the reception is waiting.

They left upon delivering with hopes that the couple will have a good wedding and the guests will enjoy the food they have prepared.

The couple was thankful for the entire staff of Lurnea Red Rooster and they promised to be loyal customers for a lifetime. The couple was very grateful because their wedding day was saved because of the help they offered.

Gary came personally to the store after the wedding to thank them and the couple promised to track down the catering service that left them hanging. Couples planning to wed in Australia should hire reliable wedding catering in Sydney to make sure this incident does not happen to them.

Engagement Rings In Melbourne

A lawsuit was filed by a Canberra man versus his former fiancée disputing the failure of returning the gifts and engagement ring he gave before the break up. Why would he ever give engagement rings in Melbourne when he was unsure of the relationship.

The ACATheard the couplewere betrothed in April after meeting in Melbourne in an escorted event.

The couple and their relatives agreed to marry them both so an engagement party was organized in May, where gifts were given including a ring.

However, the couple then experienced issues in their relationship and had it ended five months later. The Canberra man is selfish to have asked the engagement rings in Melbourne to be returned.

The reason for the break up was partly due to the Canberra man’s decision not to relocate in Melbourne, and that he didn’t inspect wedding venues with the woman.”

Once the betrothal failed, the man asked her ex-fiancée to return everything he gave her and the family including the engagement ring and other gifts.

However, the woman didn’t heed the man’s request, which motivated him to file a lawsuit to ACAT to return the pecuniary costs. That man had bad manners for asking his ex-fiancée to return those engagement rings in Melbourne.

‘Deteriorating relationship’

Graeme Lunney, senior ACAT member said the couple were “two persons in a deteriorating relationship and unable to find a way to move on.”

“In my opinion, there was not a one-sided retraction by one party in breach of a prior promise, but an acceptance by two persons that their relationship had reached an ending.

It was the lack of evidence, which happened particularly in the ACT, that led Mr. Lunney to finally say that ACAT did not have the capacity to deal with the case.

He said any further attempts to recall the expenses of the gifts and engagement ring will have to be pursuedin Victoria.

“This is a mutual acceptance of both parties that is beyond repair,” Mr. Lunney said.

“In these events, the Tribunal had no power to resolve the disagreement.”The Canberra man should have thought several times before considering the betrothal and giving of engagement rings in Melbourne.
