Cost of a Destination Indian Wedding In Goa under 35 Thousand Pound Sterling

Costing are approximate for Wedding Season Oct 2022 to Mar 2023



Day 1

Mehndi and Sangeet Functions

Meal – Street Food and Buffet Dinner

Venue – Lawns

Day 2

Am- Pooja Functions with Lunch

Venue – Small Indoor Board rooms

PM – Barrat with Sun Set Wedding (High Tea)

Venue – Sea Side

Reception Dinner

Venue: Sea Side or Ball room


Rooms at most decent 4 to 5 starred properties between the months of Oct to Apr are within the range of Rs. 16,000/- to Rs. 19,000/- 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. 1500 to 3500 per person


Rs. 1800 to 4000 (this can go upwards for Prawns, Lobsters etc)

High Tea

Rs. 850 to 1000 per person

Venue Fees

range from Rs. 65,000 for a small hall to Rs. 2,00,000 for prime sea side lawn.

Most hotels do not offer banquet service on the beach and Govt Licences ranging from Rs. 55000/- to Rs. 1 lac upwards would need to be procured over and above a fee that the Hotel may charge.

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 40% of Food bill.
