With rising costs of living in the metropolis, no wonder this is one of the most low budget weddings in Chennaisearched term in the search engines.

Because, even though people would not want to spend too less on a once in a lifetime event, they also do not want to spend more than what is necessary, keeping the rest as savings for other events that may be coming up in the near future such as baby shower, naming ceremony and so on.

What is the minimum wedding budget?

So, what is the minimum budget on which a marriage can be conducted decently in Chennai? Everyone wants to know the minimum cost that one needs to spend on a wedding. What exactly is the minimum price of a wedding? Let’s find that out.

Most of us are uninitiated in this field. Let’s break things down.

Some of the important activities are (not necessarily in order) matching of horoscopes, deciding the subha muhurtham, fixing the marriage hall, decoration, catering (before the event, during the event and after the event), number of guests, printing invitation cards, the music, the dresses for wedding and reception (sarees, suits etc for the bride, groom and the relatives), jewellery, accommodation for guests, vehicles for travel etc.,

Each of these activities may still be broken down into additional separate activities.

Of all the jobs listed above, getting the right marriage hall is the toughest of them all. If you have any experience in conducting marriages, you would agree with my statement. The search for the right marriage hall or the budget marriage halls should probably start one year or more before the marriage; the earlier you book, the chance of getting the best marriage hall for your low budget weddings in Chennai is bright. The cost of marriage halls in Chennai per day start with Rs.10,000/- (these are mini halls, with a capacity of 100-150 people) upwards of Rs.10,00,000/- [10 lakhs per day]. Some marriage halls have a capacity of more than 1000 guests; some even have sizable amount of parking space for the vehicles of guests. Low budget weddings in Chennai could also be titled minimum budget for a wedding in Chennai.

Finalizing on the muhurtham date is the one important task just before the booking of the mandapam. Many believe that the right date and time of marriage, on which the holy knot is tied, plays a major part in any successful marriage. So, getting the most auspicious date for both the bride and the groom becomes very important.

What is the minimum required for a wedding in Chennai?

The answer to this question is entirely dependent on the individual. To give you an idea, there are mini halls in Chennai, which cost you 10,000 rupees, with a capacity of just about 100 people.

Here, getting the marriage hall is the toughest job of them all. What information do you need, to home in on the hall of your choice? First of all, your budget, then your area of preference. Have at least three areas shortlisted. This is especially important, if the lead time to the event is shorter. The successful conduct of your low budget weddings in Chennai is also majorly influenced by the cost of the marriage hall. The more expensive the wedding hall, the more the cost of the other variables.

On the flip side, you may not have any choice at all, if you delay too much, because all the good halls may have been booked already. So, the idea is not to delay the booking. Before you book, you need to finalize on the date.

 Next, you need to note down the number of guests for your event. Then, decide on whether the food served will be vegetarian or non-vegetarian fare. This becomes important, because not all halls allow non-vegetarian food to be served in their premises. This is more so especially if you want to cook your own food. Some halls allow non-veg food to be served, but not cooked. Some halls do not have kitchen at premises. So, veg or non-veg option will depend on whether you get the hall of your choice or not.
