Let A Royal Affair take you to the map road and help you plan your dream wedding without burning a hole in your pocket.
Udaipur will serve you luxury in its platter. With a number of luxurious heritage properties around the main lakes: Pichola and Fateh Sagar, you can choose the ones that fir your budget. The most preferred location is Jag Mandir Island Palace, Taj Lake Palace and the Darbar Hall and Manek Chowk, both at The City Palace which charge around Rs. 8-10K including food, commute by jetty and basic facilities etc. Jag Mandir Island Palace does not accommodate large group of guests and Taj Lake Palace does not offer venue but can be used as alternative. Other nearby properties are also used such as Fateh Prakash or Shiv Niwas Palace for the stay.
Other properties such as Ananta Resort & Spa, Tatsarassa Resort, Radisson Blu, Chunda Palace and Fateh Garh etc. can be considered where gathering of 100+ people can take place easily.
There are a number of luxurious properties for the stay such as The Taj Lake Palace, The Oberoi Udai Vilas, The Lalit Laxmi Vilas, The Leela Palace, Trident, Radisson Blu etc. out of which some hotels do not charge separate rentals for the venue. The cost of accommodation in 5 star hotels is Rs. 10k+ per night, in 4 star hotels is between Rs. 5-8k per night, and in 3 star hotels is under Rs. 5k per night for a homely and comfy stay.
High end hotels such as The Oberoi Udai Vilas and The Leela Palace cost Rs. 12k per night to as high as Rs. 45K per night and the in house wedding lawns and halls are available from Rs. 50K to Rs. 3 Lac.
The guests always remember the food that is being served to them in the wedding ceremonies. No matter how brilliantly you have decorated the venue or how beautiful the bride and groom are looking on the house sized stage, the guests will keep note of the food as that is cherished the most in the entire ceremony and being talked about for days.
Sometimes, the cost of catering tends to go overboard and may cost you higher than the accommodation as the cost is on per plate basis which shoots it on high level.
If you are choosing 5 star hotel, the buffet costs Rs. 4-5k per person and at a 4 star hotel, the cost is Rs. 2.5-4K per person. In a 3 star hotel, the cost of wedding buffet is Rs. 1.5k-2K per person but if you choose the gala meals or the banquet option with specific dishes, it will cost you between Rs. 3-7 Lac for 150 guests or more. Few hotels are also providing free breakfast including in the rate on double occupancy so this can be advantageous. There are a number of offers that you can avail at the hotels only if you are aware.
Décor & Styling
This is the most crucial part of the entire wedding which can tilt your budget to any side. Wedding happens once in a lifetime and you have no qualms in fulfilling all the desires that you had imagined looking at the films, songs or pictures. To set your wedding different from the rest, there are various themes and styles that you can implement but that comes with a price.
The miscellaneous costs take the most share of the pie which includes entertainment, lightings, stage setup, flower decorations, wedding procession, master of ceremonies, mehandi artists, transportation, logistics, makeup artists, photographers and what not!
Wouldn’t it be a good idea if you’d handover the tedious work of planning and managing everything to A Royal Affair, the leading wedding planner company based in Udaipur according to the budget stated and you can focus on just one thing: enjoy the wedding?
