How Much is the Average Price of Asian Wedding Venues?
When it comes to working out the price of hiring an Asian wedding venue, there are many factors to take into consideration. Asian weddings traditionally have a larger guest list, which can lead to greater costs. On the other hands, many couples hosting Asian weddings will opt for dry hire, driving down the price of the venue.
Anisha Vasani, Creative and Luxury Wedding Director, sheds some light: "The average cost for an Asian wedding venue for dry hire ranges based on the choice of venue from top stately manor houses to luxury hotels in Central London. Catering fees will be an additional cost.
"Many Asian catering brands provide a package cost with both venue hire and catering cost per head, which can range anything from £80 - £250 per head for one dining option for a wedding lunch or dinner reception."
How Much is the Average Price of an Asian Wedding?
As reported in our National Wedding Survey 2022, the average cost of a UK wedding in 2022 was £18,400. However, as we know, weddings are like snowflakes - no two are the same. When it comes to Asian weddings, there are several factors to take into account, such as different styles of dresses and a traditionally larger guest list.
Anisha expands on this, "It has been reported that the UK British Asian wedding industry is worth over £3 billion a year with the average Asian couple spending an average of £50,000 - £80,000 on their wedding, and costs are only expected to grow.
"Many Asian couples spend a total of a £100,000 or more for multiple events during their wedding celebrations, spending on venue, catering, photography, videography, decor and florals, production, entertainment, multiple wedding outfits, jewellery, hair and makeup, stationery, and transport.
"While many western weddings prices can vary from £2,000 right up to the £30,000 and perhaps even more, Sikh, Muslim and Hindu weddings quite often have a minimum starting budget of £30,000 due to the number of event rituals that complete these weddings along with a large guest list which can reach up to 1,000 attendees."
Who Traditionally Pays for an Asian Wedding?
The question of who pays for a wedding can vary greatly from culture to culture. Not only that, but we've seen massive changes in recent years.
Anisha explains the situation in the Asian wedding industry, "Traditionally parents of Asian couples pay for the wedding.
"However, we have seen a huge transition over the past few years, where couples are also paying towards their weddings combined with a gift or wedding fund allocated from both parents, as many Asian couples have more of a say on how they would like to plan their wedding and which guests they would like to invite.
"As commonly known, best practice in traditional Asian weddings is to not only invite your closest family and friends but to also invite friends of friends, business colleagues and to extend invitations to those in return of wedding celebrations you have previously attended.
"But after the pandemic we have seen a huge change whereby couples are now more in control of their guest list and extend invitations to their nearest in dearest family and friends.
"Therefore, we have seen they are now inviting less guests to their wedding with an average of 250 - 300 guests but spending more per head and overall a higher budget spend as they are focusing on creating a more intimate and creatively curated wedding theme and allocating bigger budgets to décor, production and catering to create a more unique and personal experience for their guests."
