How to save money at weddings in Udaipur
Udaipur is perhaps the most famous venue for destination weddings in India, every year many couples choose this city for their most special day. The cost of destination wedding in Udaipur can be high for a grand wedding, but with some intelligent adjustment you can bring down the cost dramatically and still have a fabulous destination wedding.
1- Choose wedding date wisely
If you are getting married in the months of November, December or January, the cost of accommodation at all wedding venues will be higher as this is the peak season for weddings and tourism.
To save money you may choose months of February, March, September or October. As the cost of wedding venue is the biggest expense of a destination wedding, you can save a considerable amount of money and still have a wedding at the venue of your choice.
It is not advisable to choose wedding dates in the months of July and August, as this is the rainy season and there are high chances that rains will disrupt your wedding ceremonies. April, May and June are too hot, so you and your guests will not be able to enjoy the wedding.
2 – Choice of Wedding Venue
As we have already mentioned that the cost of the wedding venue is the biggest expense in a destination wedding, a wedding planner in Udaipur can help you to choose a wedding venue wisely in order to save money.
For example, if you want to host a luxurious wedding you may choose The Lalit Laxmi Vilas instead of Oberoi Udaivilas because cost of wedding at Oberoi Udaivilas will exceed Rs. 2 crores while the cost of a destination wedding at The Lalit Laxmi Vilas will be around Rs. 70 lakh. Similarly, for every kind of budget your wedding planner can suggest best wedding venues for you.
3 – More Tips

- Hire a good wedding planner who can negotiate prices of accommodation and catering on your behalf.
