Holy water pouring and blessing ceremony


Holy water pouring and blessing ceremony

Holy water pouring and blessing ceremony is an important ritual in a traditional Thai wedding ceremony as it is regarded as an auspicious ceremony that reflects the rich Thai culture which has long intrigued many foreigners.

The ceremony will be conducted for two hours after the Khan Maak procession, normally taking place in the morning. It starts with Buddhist monk ceremony at the auspicious time of 10.30 am before the mealtime for the monks at 11.00 am. Nine monks are invited to attend the ceremony as Thais believe that nine is an auspicious number. 


What should be prepared

  • Table to place pillow supporting hands with chairs for the bride and groom to receive the blessed water 
  • A small table putting at the front to place golden tray for blessed water
  • Nuptial good luck thread with the length of 1 meter
  • Two people to pass and keep the conch shells for blessed water
  • Two pairs of the bride and groom’s best friends
  • Handkerchiefs for best friends of the bride and groom
  • Souvenirs 
  • Golden tray to place the nuptial good luck thread


Ceremony 

  • Position the table by turning to the east or south direction. The groom sits on the right side of the bride.
  • The monk anoints three marks on the groom’s forehead then hold the groom’s hand to anoint for the bride and puts on the nuptial good luck thread for them. The best friends stand in front of them facing the same direction.
  • To pour the blessed water, start from right to left so the groom is always the first to receive the blessed water.
  • Someone is in charge of filling the blessed water in the conch shells for the parents of both sides to pour. While pouring the blessed water, they will bless or ask for the bride or groom to take good care of each other. 
  • After done pouring the blessed water, return the conch shells and receive souvenirs in round until everyone is done. 
  • *Children or anyone younger than the bride and groom should not pour the blessed water. This part is for seniors only.
  • A respectable relative puts off the nuptial good luck thread of the bride and groom’s heads at the same time, places them on a golden tray, and holds the bride and groom’s hands as a signal for them to get up
  • *According to the old-time belief, if the bride gets up first, she will be powerful in the household. 
  • Note: The nuptial good luck thread is regarded as the holy thing, so it should be kept on a high place such as a Buddha shelf. It can be used later on a holy occasion.
