Those 50 couples are to take part in the parade taking them around the city. At night, when the traditional Trang wedding is scheduled to be held, they will be asked to have sticky rice, which has been a common practice of Trang residents since the ancient time.

The engagement ceremony will be organized on Kradan Island. For couples that prefer not to tie the knot under the sea, they can snorkel around Morakot Cave, one of the many renowned attractions in Thailand.

Each couple will be asked to plant a rosewood tree as a symbol of their love at Peninsular Botanical Garden, where over 1,000 of the rosewood trees have been grown since the underwater wedding was first held.
