Planning a wedding isn’t an easy task

Manama : When it comes to preparing for one of the most important days in an individual’s life, wedding generally tops the list. A wedding is not only important for the bride and groom but also for their families.

It is an expensive affair as thousands of dinars are shelled out for the special occasion. Wedding cost differs from family to family. Average weddings in Bahrain cost between BD20,000 to BD35,000, according to Nahla Al Mahmood, owner of LalaBella Events Boutique, a high profile event company established in 2012.

“The myriad costs include wedding venue, bridal dress, photography, decoration, savories’, and other wedding-related services. For many, 50pc of the total budget goes for fresh flowers that are used in a wedding,” she said.

“Though weddings are expensive, I believe that every bride has to experience the joy of being a bride. It’s a beautiful journey to experience with the family and friends. Though it is getting superficial, for the bride and her family this day is one of the most important days in their lives,” said Nahla whose company organizes high-end wedding receptions, fashion exhibitions and social events.

“The costs of weddings vary greatly, as it all depends on the couple’s budget, and requirements. There are a lot of factors to consider, such as the venue, the number of guests, type of catering, the design theme and setup, lighting, entertainment, etc. So ultimately the cost depends on the clients and their requirements,” said Sara J, founder of Royal Weddings.

“When planning a wedding, you need to consider the venue selection. There are many venue options here in Bahrain, and the list of options keeps increasing year by year. We have many hotels, many indoor or outdoor venues, wedding halls, and restaurants,” she said.
