SHOW ME THE MONEY
The price points strictly vary from a case to case basis, depending on the type of engagement that the host would want to have between the families and activities that are planned around it.
The commercials involved could easily extend from approximately `10,00,000 to a crore, depending on the magnitude of the event, the venue selected, number of rooms required, and the various events planned.
Following up on the commercials and deposits as per the contract is definitely the biggest challenge faced. The requirements for the wedding tend to change quite regularly from the time of signing the contract to the main event date.
SMALLER LUXURY HOTELS OR BIGGER DESTINATION RESORTS
Destination weddings are usually a preferred choice over domestic weddings for many reasons. They offer diverse features and exotic experiences that the hosts encapsulate as their most memorable moments. Destination wedding locations create a fresh vibe among the guests that provide an escape from the regular monotony of urban lifestyle. Hosts also tend to find destinations outside India more viable due to the taxation laws as well.
