From luxury wedding venues to affordable ones, from wedding lawns to premium banquet halls, from laidback poolside banquets to buzzing terrace party areas, Weddingz.in brings all the options to your fingertips. But the million-dollar question is how to go about choosing just one wedding venue for your big day. 

If you are dreaming of getting married in the City of Dreams, Aamchi Mumbai will surprise you with the collection of wedding venues it has to offer. Looking at how our Indian weddings unfold over 2-3 days; chances are you are looking for wedding venues that can accommodate each one of the ceremonies that make Mumbai weddings so much fun. 

We are talking about pre-wedding ceremonies – roka, haldi, sangeet, mehendi, bachelorette party, engagement party, and then comes the wedding ceremony. And don’t forget about the wedding reception. Remember how many wedding receptions Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh hosted? We almost thought their wedding reception saga was never going to end. But you should at least have one, right? So, coming back to how to choose the perfect wedding venue in Mumbai, here’s our detailed guide to get you started on your hunt. 

How much does the Wedding Venue Cost in Mumbai? 

Let’s first answer the most burning question: how much does renting a wedding venue in Mumbai cost? The average cost of a Mumbai wedding spans somewhere around 5 to 50 lakhs. And the biggest chunk of this expense belongs to the three crucial elements of any event: venue, catering, and decor. Let’s break it down further for you to make things even clearer. The average venue rental of a wedding venue in Mumbai is Rs 1.5 lakhs. We will discuss more about it later in our wedding budget section, hold your horses till then! 

Your Step-by-Step Guide on How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue in Mumbai 

Before we jump straight onto finding the perfect venue in Mumbai for a one-of-a-kind wedding experience, it’s essential that we start with answering a few questions that will help us zero down on the wedding venue of your dreams.  

1. It’s Budget Hour – Let’s Talk Numbers! 

How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue in Mumbai

“The budget is not just a collection of numbers, but an expression of our values and aspirations.” – Jack Lew 

Coming down to the not-so glamorous part of wedding planning that dictates almost all of your wedding planning decisions – The Budget. Whoa! I am getting goosebumps, already! But don’t worry, it’s not the beginning of a scary movie, but the best way to avoid going overboard with your wedding expenses or any financial nightmare later on. 

Both of you as a couple should agree on the non-negotiables for your wedding and chalk out a comfortable wedding budget that doesn’t put a damper on your savings. 

Here’s a rough estimate of how an average Indian couple allocates their wedding budget: 

S.No. Wedding Elements % of the Wedding Budget 
Venue rental and décor 25-30% 
Catering Services 25-30% 
Photography and Videography (Pre-wedding & Wedding Shoot) 10-15% 
Wedding Couture and Jewellery 10-15% 
DJ, Entertainment, and others 10-15% 

Start with listing out your priorities. Do you want to splurge more on Bridal or groom couture? Want to be conservative when it comes to catering and decor? What kind of venue are you dreaming of? Do you have a specific wedding theme in mind? As you answer these questions, you will find yourself more and more confident about what your dream wedding venue should offer. 

Pro-Tip: Take time to define your priorities as a couple for your wedding ceremony! Be flexible and try to accommodate each other’s wishes without going overboard with your budget. 

2. What’s Your Vision of the Big Day?

Do you picture yourself exchanging your vows in a sundowner beach wedding, overlooking the Arabian Sea? A sophisticated indoor wedding in an air-conditioned banqueting space, away from the hot-humid weather of Mumbai city? Or an outdoor wedding in Mumbai that lets you experiment with Bollywood-style bridal and groom entry? 

Defining your wedding style and preferences as a couple will give you a list of negotiables and deal breakers that you can work through to find the perfect venue for a wedding in Mumbai. 

Pro-Tip: If you need more inspiration for your wedding, don’t forget to check out Weddingz.in Instagram. 

3. The Wedding Guest List 

How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue in Mumbai

Okay, let’s divide and conquer thy guest list! Imagine you, your spouse, and the A-team at your wedding function in Mumbai. First, only the team members you need—your families, close relatives, and lifelong friends. Plus-ones? Stay strong, folks. Now, consider tiers: top-tier VIPs, second-tier favorites, and third-tier favorites for good measure. 

Finally, stick to your guest list like glue —no last-minute changes are allowed. Mumbai calls, so let’s keep it simple, mean and oh-so-chic! 

Pro-Tip: Keep it as intimate as possible so you can splurge more on the wedding experience rather than focusing on the basics for a larger guest-list. 

4. The Location of Your Choice

There are pros and cons to every location. Whether you are looking for a prime location or a location close to home so that you don’t spend your precious time stuck in Mumbai traffic, the decision is yours and only yours. While a prime location may cost you extra, the one nearby may fetch you a good deal in terms of logistics for invitees as well. If your guests don’t mind traveling a bit, you can choose a location away from the hustle bustle of the city keeping in mind that the venue also offers lodging facilities for guests too. 

Pro Tip: Think about where the majority of your guests are located, how much traveling will be required.

Happy guests are the best! And good food is the sure shot way to make your guests happy and participate in your wedding festivities. Most of the wedding venues in Mumbai do provide in-house caterers who can customize the menu to your heart’s desire. Customization always comes at a cost. So. the biggest decision here is whether you want to choose a wedding venue in Mumbai that provides catering too. Or do you want to hire an external vendor? 

Whether you want to layout a continental spread or international cuisines, make sure you adhere to your guests’ preferences. Nothing makes the Indian audience blissful that live food counters for chaats, paani pooris, and dosas. Don’t forget the dessert counter – moong daal halwas, gulab jamuns, and ice-creams, and whatnot. You can add some international selections to your beverage and dessert counters. 

7. Decor – A magical setting for your wedding?

With wedding ceremonies moving towards creating more and more personalized experiences, the best wedding venues in Mumbai offer all the modern facilities and amenities, whimsical wedding stage decoration, ambient lighting, comfortable seating arrangements, magical mandap settings, and spacious dance floors so that all your guests can shake a leg together. 

8. Accommodation, Parking, and Other Amenities 

How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Venue in Mumbai - lodging & parking

In most of the weddings, the bridal party or groom’s party don’t share the location. So, check with the venue to see if they provide lodging facilities too, as it will be easier for the traveling party to enjoy the festivities, without fretting over transport arrangements. 

Recently, we have seen a lot of couples including their furry family members in the celebrations too. If you have a paw-pal that you want to play host to during your wedding, check with your shortlisted venues to see if they are pet-friendly or not? 

Finding public car parking in Mumbai is very tricky. If you have lots of local guests planning to drive down to the venue, it will take a load off if the wedding venue provides ample parking space too. 

9. Read Reviews and Get Recommendations from Our Venue Managers:
