Eloping to Thailand with kids
Posted 06 March 2013 - 11:26 AM
We are recently engaged, and due to family dramas (bitter divorces on both sides etc) we are planning to elope. I want it to be just the 2 of us and our 2 kiddies (7&2)
Has anyone eloped with children? Was it hard having nobody to assist with preparations on the day and nobody to give mummy and daddy some alone time?
Also, has anyone got advice on private beach locations in thailand, companies that can assist in the planning and organising our little-big day?
Positive or negative experiences would be welcome.

Just to add to BlueBug's comments - a lot of the international chains have really good babysitting services. We have used them a lot.

We want to do it completly in secret. With out financial assistance from our parents. Fingers crossed i can keep my mouth shut for 12 months.
Ive been in contact with a company called creative events asia, and they have some ideas on places to go that are child friendly. And even help put us in touch with a welling planner/ somebody who can organise the ceremony

Ours would not have needed to be a legal ceremony but I think it said in the info that they would organise staff members to witness documents (so prob the event coord who would be around anyway and someone else).
When we went on our honeymoon we stayed on Koh Samui but at a resort on the southern end of Chaweng beach as that is the main one and the better swimming one (lots of others are a bit rocky). The northern end of that beach is much quieter.

My sister was married in Thailand and they spent a few days shuttling documents back and forward to the embassy and translators in order to make their marriage legal in Australia/outside Thailand. I am not sure if that had anything to do with the fact my sister and her husband have different nationalities or not, but it might be worth looking into. Having said that, though, the resort they stayed in (on Koh Samui) was amazing in getting everything organised for them for the actual wedding and navigating the local practices (i.e. on KS - not sure about rest of Thailand - one of your witnesses needs to be a government official, so they organised that).
But please, keep us up to date on your plans, because it sounds wonderful!
