The town's convenient accessibility from Dehradun ensures ease of travel for you and your guests.

A wedding in Mussoorie will be an unforgettable celebration of love set against a backdrop of natural beauty and timeless elegance.

But all of this comes with a question – what is the cost of hosting a destination wedding in Mussoorie?

#WedInIndia is all over the country, where even Ambanis are tying the knot in India. So why not say yes to a picturesque wedding in the hills?

To calculate the actual cost of the wedding, let’s consider the itinerary and guest list.

Let’s assume 200 people for this destination wedding in Mussoorie, all of them coming by their own means of transportation. Since you are looking to host a destination wedding, you need to host your guests at least for 2 nights, given the effort they have made for you plus you need to have enough time to spread out your events!

Day 1 – Guests arrive at noon, followed by a welcome lunch with the family.

High tea mehendi followed by a fun sangeet night in the evening.

Day 2 – Depending on your requirements, you can have a day wedding and an evening reception.

We would recommend, a morning haldi and then pheras/wedding before sunset followed by a reception.

Day 3 – After breakfast, guests checkout.

Accommodation and Food Costs

Mussoorie has a plethora of options when it comes to beautiful venues and resorts. For a destination wedding, you can have budget hotels as well as luxurious 5-star properties depending on your wedding budget. 4-star properties like Royal Orchid in Mussoorie start from INR 13,000 per night to a JW Marriott which will cost you approx. INR 40,000 per night with meals. All these rates are subject to season and dates.

For a 200-people destination wedding in Mussoorie, if you opt for a 4-star property, per room night with meals will cost you INR 13,000

13,000 X 100 (ROOMS FOR 200 PEOPLE) = 13 Lakhs

13 L X 2 (NIGHTS) = 26 lakhs

So, the cost for 2 nights for 200 people with meals will cost you 26 lakh rupees.

Décor & Other Costs For A Destination Wedding In Mussoorie

If you plan on keeping things modest, which is very possible with beautiful surroundings, earmarking INR 7-12 lakhs budget for the décor for 2 big events and 1 small event.

If you want to go grand, then the sky is the limit, it can start upwards of INR 30-40 lakhs.

Most resorts will not allow you to get your own alcohol so you need to budget for that as well. Given that alcohol will be served for only 1-2 events, INR 3-5 lakhs budget can be reserved.

For other miscellaneous expenses, we would recommend budgeting at least 5-7 lakhs separately.

  • Transportation from hotel to venue and back.
  • Entertainment for guests like local folk artists.

So all in all, we can easily assume that a modest destination wedding in Mussoorie can be wrapped up in a budget of about INR 40 to 60 lakhs for a guest list of about 200 people.

If you want to go luxurious, the approximate cost for the same guest list and number of nights will be INR 90 lakhs to 1.2 Cr

Many factors will determine the costs of the destination wedding – like seasons, specific dates, scale of the décor, gifts and so on. But for a basic idea of a modest destination wedding, this is a good base to set your budget on.
