Family assent is important in Thailand, and it’s common for families to plan their family’s weddings. The bride’s families will meet with the groom’s family to discuss how much dowry is necessary and to see if their son’s child would approve of their brother marrying their daughter in the practice of Sin Sod.

A pair will gather together at a water-pouring table ( dtang rot naam ), where older members of both families and special guests will anoint their foreheads with a white thread, which monks typically use to bless them during the previous ceremony. Afterward, they will receive two mong kols (ceremonial Thai headpieces ) to wear, which will serve as additional emblarage for their union.

The groom wo n’t be permitted to enter the bride’s home until he passes through a number of symbolic doors or gates when the khan maak procession arrives at her home. The brides and her home typically construct these, which gently prevent him from passing easily while the audience shouts him on with a lot of fun and frivolity.

The few likely lay their hands along and beg for their success and happiness before the band swap. The bride and groom may also give a local church a merit gift in the form of money or food to bless the temple for its blessings during this ceremony. Rod Nam Sang, or Rod Nam Sang, is a custom that many contemporary people follow to celebrate the beginning of their fresh life together.
