Best Time to Plan a Wedding in Udaipur

Destination Wedding in Udaipur will be very beautiful and charming all through the year, but it is recommended to avoid getting married during certain months. The best time to plan a wedding in Udaipur is during the soothing winter season when the weather is enjoyable and is favourable for everyone to explore the beauty in the outdoors. During the day, the temperatures remain in the range of 20-30 degree Celsius, and during the night, the minimum temperature is 15-22 degree Celsius.

In summers, it can get as hot as 40 degrees Celsius. During this season Udaipur is dry with hot winds. The monsoon showers bring some relief, drawing down the temperatures to 30-35 degree Celcius, though the humidity levels still remain high. 

Best time to get married: October to February

Ok months to get married: August-September and March-April 

Months to avoid: May, June & July 

How to Choose a Wedding Venue in Udaipur?

Your budget for booking the wedding venue and a number of guests majorly influence the type of hotel you’ll be choosing. Udaipur is known to be a hub of appealing palaces and resorts. So, to help you start with planning your wedding, we’ve categorized the hotels & resorts depending upon their ratings : 

 Luxury 5-star Hotels & Heritage Hotels: Luxury 5-star hotels are the ones that will surely give you the royal feeling and cost anywhere between INR 20,000 to INR 50,000 per room per night. Leela Palace and Oberoi Udaivilas – two of the utterly gorgeous hotels that come in my mind the moment I say luxury 5-star hotels in Udaipur. Other hotels in this category include Shiv Niwas Palace, Fateh Prakash Palace, Taj Aravali Resort etc..

5-star Hotels & Resorts: Hotels in this category do not scream luxury, but will give you the best 5-star experience and cost anywhere between INR 14,000 to INR 20,000 per room per night. Two of the best hotels falling under this category are RAAS Devi Garh Palace and Fort Fatehgarh. These two are fairly priced at INR 17,000 and INR 20,000 per night respectively. Another 5-star hotel is Trident Udaipur which is less expensive and costs INR 15,000 per night on average.

Heritage & 4-star Hotels: If you’re planning a budget wedding, then these will be the sorted ones for you, namely Rajputana Udaipur & Udai Bagh and many more. Here, the cost of a wedding you’ll experience lies anywhere between INR 5,000 – INR 8,000 per night.

We have told you about the range of prices the hotels offer, now let’s calculate the total cost of a Wedding in Udaipur. Let us understand what are the other costs involved besides the hotel stay & wedding venue It’s the cost of food, photography, decoration, makeup and so on. 

The cost of food per plate varies as per the menu and prices of each individual hotel. However, the general rule of thumb with regards to the meal cost is it is equal to the cost of rooms at the hotel (+/- 10 to 15%) So if your hotel room costs you 10 thousand per room per night, the cost of meals for two guests will be 9 to 12 thousand per room per night.

The cost of photography and decoration will add 20 – 30 Lakhs to your total cost. The individual cost of both the heads has been discussed later.

What’s The Total Cost of Destination Weddings in Udaipur? 

After giving you an idea about the types of hotels you can choose from and their room price estimate, here is the total estimated cost of a wedding in Udaipur inclusive of other costs namely decoration costs and photography costs : 

 – Other estimated costs if you work with pocket-friendly vendors (Decoration and Photography) + Budget Hotel costs = INR 2.5 Lakhs + INR 20 Lakhs

 ~ Minimum spends on the budget wedding – INR 25 Lakhs

 – If you work with top vendors and want absolute luxury, the numbers are going to be slightly high – INR 24 Lakhs (Decoration for three events) + INR 3.5 Lakhs (Wedding Photography for three days) + INR 40 Lakhs (Hotel Costs for 150 persons and 2 nights) = INR 71 Lakhs (It varies and can stretch upto INR 90 Lakhs)

How to Decide Wedding Photographers for Destination Wedding?

Wedding photographers and cinematographers do not come cheap. However, there are tonnes of great guys out there who do a very good job cheaper. Mind you, it is not as good as these guys but its descent and 99% of my clients (as a former wedding planner) have not to regret hiring them. These guys charge anywhere between 1.5 lacs to 3.5 lacs for a 2-day wedding. For a 3 day wedding, you can do the math.

Badal Raja & Company: INR 6 Lakh – INR 10 Lakhs

Memories by Prakash Tilokani: INR 6 Lakhs – INR 10 Lakhs

How to Decide The Wedding Decorators for Destination Wedding in Udaipur?

Now whether you let your wedding planner take care of decor for you or work with the wedding decorator directly, it is important to work with someone with whom your wedding planner is comfortable. In case your wedding planner says your decorator is average, don’t work with that guy. Calling a guy average is dropping hints, he is not as good as you think! 

And most importantly, usually, the wedding decorators recommended by the venues are not great. They may be good, but believe me, never great. 

Expect to spend anywhere between 10 to 30 Lakhs on decor if you work with a good wedding decorator. In case you go with DIY route, you can organise basic decor for 5 to 12 Lakhs.

Here are some of the best wedding planners & decorators in India who have been doing this job for a long time and are excellent at what they do:

Q Events by Geeta Samuel

Abhinav Bhagat

Elements Decor by Harkishan Singh

Mapsor Weddings

The Wedding Connections by Amit Hooda

Well, in my opinion, ideally, the cost of a wedding in Udaipur can be rounded off to 40-50 Lakhs.

However, everyone has their own perception and if you want to have your dream wedding, then you should surely browse through the above-mentioned wedding venues in Udaipur and plan your royal affair right away!
