Family approval is very important in Thailand, and it’s common for parents to organise their children’s spouses. The bride’s parents may meet with the groom’s family to explain how little bride is required and to see if their son and daughter would approve of their son marrying their daughter in the practice of Sin Sod.

A couple will gather together at a water-pouring desk before the marriage ceremony, where older members of both families and special guests likely dethrone their foreheads with a white string, which monks typically do at the previous service. 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 bridesmaids and her household typically construct these, which lovingly prevent him from passing readily while the audience applause him on with lots of fun and frivolity.

The couple will sit down and pray for their success and happiness before the circle trade. The bride and groom may also give a local temple a significance surprise in the form of money or food to thank the sanctuary for its blessings during this ceremony. Rod Nam Sang is a term used by many contemporary lovers to mark the beginning of their new lives together.
