Indian Wedding Budget Infographic: Free Download

Do you know how much things cost for an Indian wedding in Southern California? There are so many articles on the internet for Western weddings but not a whole lot of information for Indian weddings…until now. How much of the budget should you allocate to a venue for an Indian wedding? Photography? Cinematography? How would you know? Chances are you’re planning a wedding for the first time!

{What’s Your Wedding Budget?}

And one thing you’ll find when you start planning an Indian wedding is that every vendor will ask you, “what’s your wedding budget?”. And more often than not, most people don’t have any idea how much an Indian weddings costs. You might have gathered some info casually from friends and family but South Asians don’t like to talk about money too openly – especially when it comes to how much people spent on their wedding, so it’s kind of a black hole.

So your reaction to the question, “what’s your budget?” is “I don’t know. I’m calling you to find out how much your service costs, so I can figure out what my wedding budget is!”

Since the venue is the first thing most people book for an Indian wedding, couples call me to get our help to find their venue, and say my budget is, $x”. And the majority of the time it’s too little based on either the type of venue they want, the number of guests, the number of events, or all of the above. And it’s because they’re making their best guess about how much things cost. This infographic will save you time and help you understand what to expect.

South Asian Social Calendars. You also might like our 2018 and 2019, ShaadiShop South Asian Social Calendars. We’ve listed all of the major Hindu, Jain, Muslim, and Sikh holidays, plus American holidays and major events happening throughout Southern California, in one calendar, so you don’t have to look up each thing separately.
