How much does it cost for planning Destination Wedding in Goa ? And Venues

BRIEF

You might want to have a couple wedding or an intimate wedding at a villa or maybe at a beach shack which is all beautiful, practical and feasible in Goa.

    Out of ten wedding queries we receive, at least six wish to tie the knot at beach wedding destination Goa. And the first step is to brief on the cost of planning a wedding in Goa. That is numbers speaking why Goa is such a hot wedding destination and well otherwise too it has just about everything going for it to be one of the most popular wedding destinations in India.

Nearly most of the times a couple before hiring a wedding planner, wants to know a ballpark figure on the cost of planning a wedding in Goa.

It is North Goa that attracts mainstream tourism so to say but most of the destination weddings happen at South Goa. Reason being South Goa is comparatively less touristy, beaches are cleaner, and virtually all beach resorts are located in South Goa with private beach access.

COST OF PLANNING A WEDDING

     However, as of now in this post let’s talk about cost of planning a wedding in Goa with 100 guests, accommodation at a 5-star standard or a luxury hotel/ resort and arrive at an approximate costing.

[Rough Event Flow] 

ACCOMMODATION AND MEALS

 Requirements

50 Rooms for 100 Guests (Double occupancy sharing)

2 Nights and 3 Day stay with breakfast and all meals 

Day 1

Guests arrive, freshen up, have lunch and then get ready for Mehndi and Sangeet Dinner.

Day 2

After breakfast guests relax in resort, have lunch and start getting ready for Wedding High tea followed by Reception Dinner.

Day 3 

Guests check out after breakfast

 Above may cost anywhere between INR 12000 to INR 25000 per person depending on hotel chosen. So for 100 guests it would total to INR 12 lakhs to INR 25 lakhs. If you are wondering why such a big range, it actually comes down to your choice of the hotel. Leela, Park Hyatt, Alila Diwa, Taj Exotica, The Lalit are most sought after and are in the top tier. Then there’s Kenilworth, Ramada, Holiday Inn, Radisson Blu, Planet Hollywood etc.Also, expect a venue charge ranging from INR 45000 to INR 2 lakhs per event depending on venue whether banquet hall or beach or lawns and of course the chosen hotel.

Please note that taxes and beverages are not included in the pricing.

*Corkage is not allowed and you have to take liquor from hotel only. You can also make it like a cash bar.

 

WEDDING ARRANGEMENTS

Decorations – Per event, for 100 guests, we suggest spending somewhere from 3 lakhs to 7 lakhs. This amount  will  cover floral, center table arrangements, seating, ambiance lighting, detailing elements, candles, designing of the event look and so on.

For two events (Mehndi cum Sangeet and Beach Wedding followed by Reception) will cost at least 6 lakhs and can go up to 20 lakhs depending on how elaborate and detailed you want it to be.

 Entertainment – You can hire a local DJ or Live Band and can invite a celebrity too. We suggest spending a lakh  to  two lakhs for 2-day entertainment with DJ or a Live Band, a folk Goan dance performance.

 Procession – Depending on how elaborate you want procession to be it may range from INR 50000 to INR 150000.The elephant is quite expensive in Goa and costs more than INR 60,000. You may go for a horse carriage or a vintage car as you would like.

 Makeup Artist – We would suggest INR 60000 to INR 1 lakh for 3 make-ups for the bride.

Photography and Cinematography – This is one element where we strongly feel one should not cut corners. Even if it means you have to fly in your favorite photographer from Italy, we would be the ones to coax you to hire him/ her. It is the moments and memories you are spending on, so we say choose a photographer whose work you truly like.Broadly speaking, it will cost 2 to 4 lakhs for photography and same for Cinematography for 2-day events.

 Miscellaneous – Other elements like Wedding Cake, Fireworks, Sky lanterns, Heena Artist, wedding website etc, set aside another 1 to 2 lakhs.

 When totaled, average wedding arrangements comes in the bracket of 16 lakhs to 35 lakhs. Adding 1 and 2, we can conclude that a 100 guests wedding for 2 day events may cost anywhere between 30 lakhs to 55 lakhs depending on hotel chosen.This is the skeleton of varied costs when planning a destination wedding in Goa and clearly it ain’t an easy task. Hiring a wedding consultant (we happily share our expertise) would help you ease take off a chunk of your weddingzilla-ness or if you like we may plan it for you as well, so you may actually have a wedding that you and your partner are dreaming about.

 So it wouldn’t be a bad idea to pass on the to-do-list to us while you enjoy your most special day with your loved ones. The first step to that is submitting your query to us, and the rest we will happily take care of.
