Planning a wedding can leave you with sticker shock, especially if you and your spouse-to-be are hoping to host a destination wedding. Now, how can we forget about the over-the-top packages? Not everyone can afford to spend a wad of money just to make their wedding day memorable and extraordinary.


But, if your heart sings "Dil hai ki manta nahi" for a wedding venue in your crowded city and urges you to have a destination wedding, then this blog post is for you! To help you plan a far-flung wedding celebration that doesn't burn a hole in your pocket, we bring you the best places for a low-budget wedding.


1. Rajasthan


You won't find a better destination for a fairytale wedding than Jaipur or Jodhpur, both of which are located in Rajasthan. The magnificent backdrop for your wedding photographs will be the stone-carved walls and marvellous pillars. Sounds amazing, right? 


If you choose a budget-friendly yet equally regal setting, you may easily plan your low-budget wedding at this amazing place under 10 - 15 lakhs. However, there are lavish resorts and palaces too like Umaid Haveli in Jaipur or Umaid Bhawan in Jodhpur that you can opt for. But then your wedding budget will land between 30 – 50 Lakhs.

5. Shimla


Settled in the Himalayan ranges, the snow-clad mountains with the versatility of the pine trees living on them make Shimla the perfect place for a low-budget wedding. Isn't it too overwhelming to envisage your destination wedding with those enchanting mountains standing out to watch you tie the knot with your one and only true love? We are curious as to how it might feel in real life.


For a guest list of 150 people, low-budget Indian wedding decorations, as well as the location, will cost you between Rs. 10 and 15 lakhs (excluding the travel costs). Yes, the accommodation, venue, or wedding package prices are far lower here than elsewhere. And, to travel, you can opt for rental car services.

6. Kovalam


This lovely setting is perfect for you and your guests if you're seeking a venue that can deliver some truly exceptional hospitality. Yes, you heard right, this city is the epitome of divine beauty. With the crystal clear lakes and the plush greenery, this place leaves no stones unturned to make your dream destination wedding come true.


With a guest list of 200 people, a low-budget wedding in Kovalam will cost you roughly Rs. 8 - 15 lakhs. Travel costs are not included.

7. Goa


Goa has long been known for bringing the dream of a beach wedding to life for both Indian and foreign couples. The tranquility of the beaches and the ferocity of the waves come together to form a beautiful contrast that attracts couples like a magnet.


There are now multiple exotic venue options for weddings in Goa, and the packages are very high if you want to organise it during the winters considering the peak season. However, we recommend you to have a  low-budget wedding in the summer because it is Goa's off-season, and the deals will be better. With a guest list of 100 people, low-budget Indian wedding decorations, as well as the destination in Goa will fall under a budget of Rs. 10-15 lakhs.
