Cost Saving Tips

Combining Events

Combining the two events like Mehndi and Sangeet can help you to cut down on a number of functions and costs. It entirely depends on your suitability and preferences.

Choose the right Property

Sometimes choosing an all-inclusive venue is the smart way to go. Of course, if you fall in love with a venue that doesn’t offer this, we’ll still help you make it the most enjoyable and affordable experience. That said, there are a number of reasons to choose an all-in venue:

Here is why:

You won’t have to worry of the food and drinks besides your events. Keep in mind that all inclusive refers to the stay,  not to private events.

In many properties, the food and open bar cost could be reduced greatly depending on the number or room/nights of your entire wedding group. And to put the cherry on top, each property has activities to keep your guests busy enough during their stay that we assure you nobody will want to leave the hotel.

EPs or European Plan hotels even if they are not all inclusive properties might be a good fit for you. It might sound scary at the beginning, but keep reading as this might be a great option for you.

Here is why:

If your taste and style is high end oriented, if attention to detail and impecable customer service is what you are looking for,  if your privacy is a priority for you, if not all of your guests drink alcoholic drinks or if you love fine dinning and you want to offer that same level of experience to your friends are family there are some great resort options for you.
