Hyderabad is known for its royalty and rich culture. Therefore, many couples choose Hyderabad as their wedding destination because they want to have a wedding in the royal style or you can say in Nawabi style. But what if you are running on a tight budget and still want to have your dream royal-style wedding. Well, worry not we are here to help you.
As you all know, these days almost half of the total wedding budget goes into the banquet hall cost. Therefore, we bring you some tried and trusted tricks which you can use to save up on the cost when booking a banquet hall in Hyderabad.
1. Book during the off season
This trick is one of our favourites. Do you know that during the wedding season banquet halls in Hyderabad tend to charge higher rates as compared to off season. Also, good banquet halls are not easily available during the wedding season.
Therefore, if you want to host your royal style wedding in Hyderabad and also want to save some bucks at the same time then book the banquet hall during the off season. We should recommend you to book at least 6-8 months in advance in order to get the best deals possible.
2. Hire the outside vendors
Some of the banquet halls in Hyderabad allows you to hire the outside vendors like caterers, wedding decorators, DJs etc. You should ask your shortlisted banquet hall whether they have similar policies or not. If they do, then hire the vendors as per your budget from outside instead of using in-house vendors who offer the same services at the premium amount. This way you will be able to save a lot.
3. Ask for the discount upon paying the total amount upfront
This is a good old trick. Usually, wedding halls in Hyderabad have a payment policy and allow the customers to pay in installments. But they are willing to offer huge discounts if the customer is paying the total amount at once.
Therefore, you can always ask the banquet hall in Hyderabad to offer you some discount if you are paying total charges at the time of booking. By doing so you can save a few bucks.
4. Book the same banquet hall for multiple functions
Generally, banquet halls in Hyderabad offer customers the discounted rates if they book them for multiple functions. So, you can also book the banquet hall for multiple wedding functions and ask the management to charge at the discounted rates. By doing so you can bring your wedding venue cost marginally.
5. Have a day wedding or host your wedding on weekdays
Wedding halls in Hyderabad charge a bit higher rates for night functions and weddings hosted on weekends. So, if you are running on a budget then we suggest you host a day wedding or have your wedding functions during the week. This way you can also save up on other expenses as well like food, lighting, decor etc. So, it’s a double benefit.
