Indian Wedding Palm Springs: Hyatt Regency Indian Wells

{Indian Weddings Palm Springs}

Indian weddings in Palm Springs are destination weddings where the entire wedding weekend is usually hosted at one venue. Some things to consider:

  • Host breakfasts and lunches and arrange a hospitality room with the Hyatt.
  • There aren’t a lot of Indian wedding vendors based in that area, as such most of the vendors you’ll hire are going to be coming in from LA and OC. You will probably have to set them up with accommodation and meals or your wedding weekend.

What Should The Budget Be for an Indian Weddings in Palm Springs?

First let’s make some assumptions:

  • Friday night – sangeet
  • Saturday wedding ceremony + reception
  • Lunch for all guests after the wedding ceremony on Saturday
  • 350 guests
  • Hosted consumption bar on Friday night and Saturday night
  • Hosted breakfast for two days
  • Hosted lunch for guests that arrive on Friday afternoon
  • Thursday event space for religious ceremonies

Given all of these assumptions, the wedding budget should be at least $200,000. Assume 35%-40% of your budget will go towards the venue – so that’s between $70,000 to $80,000 at the venue. And the rest for food, photography, videography, decor, clothes, jewelry and everything else you’ll need. Download our Indian wedding infographic for more details about a budget breakdown.
