Some milestones in life are so momentous that you want everything about them to be perfect. Weddings are one of them. If you will be walking down the aisle soon, it is natural to feel a little overwhelmed and stressed along with all the joy and excitement. After all, who doesn’t wish for a perfect wedding! Calculating figures is helpful to reduce such stress as it brings clarity and gives you a roadmap for the next steps. So, let’s take a look at the typical budget for a wedding in India and how you can finance it with the help of a personal loan for wedding.

Budget for your wedding

Your wedding budget will primarily depend on things that can be clubbed into 3 categories:

  • Venue

This is the primary determinant of what your wedding will cost. The kind of venue you should select depends on how many guests you want to invite and whether you want to go for a big fat Indian wedding or opt for a more intimate affair. The theme of your wedding and the décor and style preferences will also play a role in choosing the venue. Typically, the kind of venues people opt for, and their costs are:

• Five-star hotels and palaces – Rs 50 lakh and above
• Four-star and three-star hotels, banquet halls, etc. – Rs 20 lakh to Rs 40 lakh
• Farmhouses and resorts in the outskirts of the city – Rs 5 to Rs 15 lakh

It is crucial to keep in mind that the above costs are just estimates and the total expenditure depends on the number of people invited, the kind of décor you opt for, and the package you decide to go for.

  • Outfits, jewellery, and gifts

Another major wedding cost is the outfits and jewellery of the bride and groom and the gifts given to family members and other guests. This is a very personal choice and hence you need to have a conversation with your partner to decide how you want to navigate it. For instance, if you are someone who wants to splurge on your wedding outfit, it could run into lakhs.

  • Photographer and honeymoon

While these expenses may not seem directly linked to the wedding day, they are a part of wedding costs and can be a significant amount. From your pre-wedding photoshoot to wedding day videography, you need to decide how you want to document your milestone and what it's going to cost. The honeymoon too is an essential part of getting married and depending on the destination you pick, as well as the duration, the cost of this could be anywhere between Rs 1 lakh to Rs 15 lakh or above.
