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

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..

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)
