Costing are approximate for Wedding Season Oct 2017 to Mar 2018


Rooms at most decent 4 to 5 starred properties between the months of Oct to Apr are within the range of Rs. 9,000/- to Rs. 17,000/- per night per double on Bed and Breakfast (Exceptions to this are the premium 5 star Hotels such as the Leela, The Taj Exotica, The Park Hyatt, The Grand Hyatt, the Lalit etc which are a about 15%  to 25% more expensive)


Meals for the Functions:

Most of the hotels in the similar star category have very similar meal rate structures




range Rs. 600 to 2500 per person


Rs. 1800 to 3000 (this can go upwards for Prawns, Lobsters etc)

High Tea

Rs. 600 to 1000 per person


Soft and Alcoholic Beverages

Beverages is on actuals and most hotels have Bottle Banquet rates, which is cheaper then their per glass rate and about 40% more expensive then the retail bottle rate. Note: Premium Alcohol like Chivas or Black Label and Absolute is a lot more expensive in India as compared to duty free prices. So, my advise stick to the local brands.

This budget for soft and alcoholic beverages can vary drastically but I would keep a figure of 30% of Food bill.
