Because: Unlike other services out there here at Eden Thai Bride Services we are very selective in matching the right European Man to the right Thai lady.

We only ever have a handful of personally selected thai ladies on our books at any one time. We also only arrange a handfull of weddings each year when we have found the right pairing

You see when you use Eden Thai Bride services you are provided with a complete marriage package from introduction to Thai wedding to honey moon to visa arrangements to flights home.

No detail is left out. If you are selected then we arrange everything for you. All that's left for you to do is show up.

You will receive a VIP select executve service that is second to none to ensure your experience is a safe and fulfilling one.

Let me start by introducing myself:

Hi, My Name is Graham Berry and you can see me on my wedding day in 2001 in the picture above.

And i'd just like to say I'm still as happy today as I was all those years ago on that very special day. My life is more complete now than it has ever been and that is because of my darling wife Yui, who is now my partner for life.

And I'd like to make it happen for you too..

One of the reasons for providing this selective thai bride service to you is because I have been there, I have sadly seen the pitfalls that others have made, I have navigated the legal systems and now after eight happy years of marriage have a very good understanding of Thailand, the Thai culture, and everythig that you need to know to ensure your marriage to a Thai lady is a happy one.

That is why I know I can provide the right service to you. 

Let me explain some of the things that you need to know before you embark on your journey to find happiness.

There are many pitfalls to be avoided
 if you want to venture along your journey alone!!
 

I would very much like to help you, but at the end of the day that choice is yours.

So lets take a look to see what you need to know...

“What do You really need to know to ensure You reach complete happiness in Your quest to find that special partner to share the rest of Your life with..?”

One thing you certainly need to know is that it takes time. Like any long lasting relationship trying to find the perfect partner. But as Thailand is several thousands of miles away, it is expensive to keep having to make the trip to find what you are looking for, and more often and not you will fail.

Why are Thai Girls keen to marry a European
Gentleman who more-often than not
are several years older than themselves?

 

 

The reason a large age span is acceptable is often very personal to the girls and I hate to generalize, but if I have to do so then there are several commonly accepted reasons that Thai girls date and/or marry foreigners so much older than themselves.

 

Stability, Both Financial and in the Relationship…

 

First of all, what you have to realise is that many of the Thai girls are looking for stability, both financial and in the relationship.

 

Older foreign men are typically able to provide both. They are in general financially well off, especially by Thai standards and this is viewed as a definite positive.

 

They are also more settled and less prone to wander than their Thai counterparts.

 

Promiscuous Thai Men…

 

Add to that the western cultural ideal of monogamy and they become even more attractive to Thai women who are used to seeing Thai men that are promiscuous and prone to having mistresses.

 

Skin Colour…

 

Thai’s also value white skin very much and in fact those with darker skin are perceived to be of a lower class in Thai society.

 

Typically children of Thai/western marriages tend to be much lighter skinned and thus more accepted in society. The Thai’s even have a name for such children of mixed parentage which is ‘Luk Kreung’ and literally means ‘child half”.

 

You’ll find many famous Thai actors; pop stars and models are ‘Luk Kreung’.

 

Thai Tradition of Arranged Marriages…

 

One aspect that is often overlooked by westerners is that traditionally Thai marriages are often arranged by parents, not on the basis of love, but for mutual benefits between the families such as a property tie up or business merger.

 

Westerners don’t understand this type of arranged marriage and often don’t consider this aspect of

Thai culture yet it is very ingrained and accepted in Thailand.

 

Because of this Thai women can sometimes view their bodies as property (Thai men view them this way as well which is a reason Thai women don’t care for Thai men) and as such have no problem using it to gain a better social or financial standing.

 

In the beginning the Thai girl may not even like her husband much, but over time a love and mutual respect grows. As the two get to know each other better an assimilation of each others culture begins to occur and the bonds between a Thai woman and her foreign husband can grow very strong.

 

Just accept it as a God Blessing…

 

It’s good to understand these dynamics better, but I think we older western guys should just be thankful for our beautiful Thai ladies and not question too much. After all, it sure beats the alternative.

 

What risks are involved trying to find a Thai lady myself?

 

 

Over the past years 8 years I have heard of a few success stories of guys going alone and finding happiness being married to a Thai girl, however I can tell you hundreds of stories of English guys who have experience total failure, lost thousands of pounds and in some cases their homes.

 

 

BEWARE - Streets Paved with …… RISK

 

 

It is so easy for any English guy to visit Thailand and full in love with a Thai girl that he has met at a bar or on the streets, but she will inevitably be a prostitute, bar girl as know in Thailand .

 

 

These girls will do anything to earn money to look after their parents and children.

 

 

They will promise you the world, tell you all there hard up stories and fleece you of all your money, either before or after marriage.

 

   

So how do I know that she is not a Bar Girl
and comes from a reputable background?

 

 

There are two main problems you will encounter.

1. You will only be in the country for one to three weeks. Because of the limited time you will be in the country it does not give you enough time to meet up with and find the right people.

You may be looking to enjoy yourself each evening and mixing in the wrong company.

2. Good honest religious Thai girls will not be seen out in bars or walking the streets of Thailand .

During the day they will be hard at work, normally working early in the morning until 6pm at night. Many of them live fairly near to their work place but the traffic problems mainly in Bangkok can put hours onto their journey home.

The average working week is from Monday to Saturday leaving just Sunday to catch up with their family and relations.

So what chance has an English guy without any contacts in Thailand got of meeting up with a good genuine Thai Girl?  - In a word NONE     

 

What Do I Need To Know About Thai Wedding Culture?

 

Thai marriage ceremonies between Buddhists are generally divided into two parts:

1. A Buddhist component, which includes the recitation of prayers and the offering of food and other gifts to monks and images of the Buddha


 

 

2. A non-Buddhist component rooted in folk traditions, which centres on the couple's family.

 Former Traditions You need to know…

 

In former times, it was unknown for Buddhist monks to be present at any stage of the marriage ceremony itself. This is because monks were required to attend to the dead during funerals, their presence at a marriage (which was associated with fertility, and intended to produce children) was considered a bad omen.

 

A couple would seek a blessing from their local temple before or after being married, and might consult a monk for astrological advice in setting an auspicious date for the wedding.

 

The non-Buddhist portions of the wedding would take place away from the temple, and would often take place on a separate day.

 

Modern Day Traditions…

 

In modern times, these prohibitions have been significantly relaxed. It is not uncommon for a visit to a temple to be made on the same day as the non-Buddhist portions of a wedding, or even for the wedding to take place within the temple.

 

 

While a division is still commonly observed between the "religious" and "secular" portions of a wedding service, it may be as simple as the monks present for the Buddhist ceremony departing to take lunch once their role is complete.

 

Proceedings…

 

During the Buddhist component of the wedding service, the couple first bow before the image of the Buddha.

 

They then recite certain basic Buddhist prayers or chants typically including taking The Thai dowry system which is known as the 'Sin Sodt'.

 

Parents of the couple may then be called upon to 'connect' them, by placing upon the heads of the bride and groom twin loops of string or thread that link the couple together.

 

Offerings to the Monks…

 

The couple may then make offerings of food, flowers, and medicine to the monks present. Cash gifts (usually placed in an envelope) may also be presented to the temple at this time.

 

The monks may then unwind a small length of thread that is held between the hands of the assembled monks.

 

 

They begin a series of recitations of Pali scriptures intended to bring merit and blessings to the new couple.

 

 

The string terminates with the lead monk, who may connect it to a container of water that will be 'sanctified' for the ceremony.

 

Merit is said to travel through the string and be conveyed to the water; a similar arrangement is used to transfer merit to the dead at a funeral, further evidence of the weakening of the taboo on mixing funerary imagery and trappings with marriage ceremonies.

 

More Traditions…

 

Blessed water may be mixed with wax drippings from a candle lit before the Buddha image and other unguents and herbs to create a 'paste' that is then applied to the foreheads of the bride and groom to create a small 'dot', similar to the marking sometimes made with red ochre on Hindu devotees.

 

 

The bride's mark is created with the butt end of the candle rather than the monk's thumb, in keeping with the Vinava prohibition against touching women.

 

The highest-ranking monk present may elect to say a few words to the couple, offering advice or encouragement.

 

 

The couple may then make offerings of food to the monks, at which point the Buddhist portion of the ceremony is concluded.

 

What is a Dowry?

 

The Thai dowry system is known as the 'Sin Sodt'. Traditionally, the groom will be expected to pay a sum of money to the family, to compensate them and to demonstrate that the groom is financially capable of taking care of their daughter.

 

 

Sometimes, this sum is purely symbolic, and will be returned to the bride and groom after the wedding has taken place

 

 

How do I obtain entry visa for my new wife?

 

 

Unfortunately you cannot obtain or apply for the visa for your wife.

 

 

She will have to do all this herself. Firstly all your documents that are requested are received.

 

Appropriate forms are completed and sub-mitted together with the visa fee so that an interview time can be made.

 

 

Your marriage certificate has to be translated into English.

 

 

The All Important Visa Interview…

 

 

Your wife will then have to attend an interview which last around 30 minutes.

 

 

Providing your wife answers are acceptable and they believe all she has said and all your documents satisfy the needs of the Embassy your wife should be given an entry visa to England.

 

 

If on the other hand they are not satisfied with either your wife’s answers or your documentation her application will be refused. NB Application fee is not refundable.

 

 

 

 

How long does it normally take to find, marry and relocate?

 

 

On average between three to six months that’s if you want everything to run smoothly and for a long lasting marriage filled with happiness.

 

 

Yes, of course I have heard of people going out to Thailand, finding a girl the first night, married in three days, got marriage certificate but cannot proceed any further as his wife will not be granted a visa straight away.

 

 

The Risk of Going it Alone…

 

 

It may take several months or worst case scenario she may never be granted one. With who has he married? You don’t know and he certainly doesn’t.

 

 

9 Months is a Very Long Wait!!

 

 

It is however common place when you don't know what you are doing for the guy to marry and have to leave his wife in Thailand for at least three to nine months until she is granted permission to enter and stay in England.

 

 

Is there a language barrier to overcome?

 

 

Some Thai girls speak very good English but the majority of them speak little or none at all.

 

However this should not be seen as a draw back as Thai girls are always keen to learn English.

 

An English guy learning Thai doesn’t happen that often. You just need to learn a few words to get by.

 

Lots of well educated Thai girls speak good English but you will seldom come across them as they will be too busy earning money or at home caring for their parents.
