Start by telling us what kind of visa and/or extension of stay you have for Thailand. Do you have a work permit and job in Thailand or are you here on a retirement extension of stay?

Your wife should try and get a non-immigrant "O" visa. After she is here she can apply for a 1 year extension of stay based on being your dependent.

Is she here in Thailand or in the Philippines? If here she needs a copy of your passport/extension of stay to obtain a non immigrant O visa entry and then can apply for extension of stay to match you with proof of marriage.
If in the Philippines she can try to obtain the non immigrant O visa but that Thai Embassy is well known for not being friendly for visa issue to anyone.

I also have a Filipina wife living with me here. I have a retirement visa too. When you go to immigration with your wife if she has a non immigrant visa take along your marriage certificate and your wife will receive the same visa as yourself as your dependent. The cost is 1900 baht same as yours. The 800,000 baht you need income is for both of you.. not per person. Best of luck.
