Which is the Best Venue or Resort to plan a wedding in Goa ?

Every Venue and Resort in Goa is perfect in it's own way. If you want your guests to experience the beautiful white sands of Goa without any hustle & bustle then South Goa is the place for you. With most of the 5 Star beach resorts spread out along the South Goan coastline you will have plenty of staying options to choose from. The South is where most of the Big Fat Indian Beach Weddings take place and one can truly experience the natural beauty of Goa.

However if you want to give your guests a more touristic experience of Goa then North & Central Goa makes a lot of sense as your guests will get to enjoy Nightlife, Casinos, Cruises, Shopping, History & Sight seeing just minutes away. You will also get a lot of options in the North which are beautiful and unique in their own way.

Stand-alone venues without accommodation are available for weddings across Goa which could be part of your wedding itinerary if you are open to travelling from your resort for a different experience.

While booking Wedding Venues it is important to check that they have Ample Parking Space, Decent Lavatories and Basic Amenities. While booking Resorts it is important to check that they have sufficient Banquet Halls and Event Venues to host your wedding functions. Besides the well maintained rooms, it is also recommended that a food tasting be done before committing to a particular resort. It is important that you clear out all your queries and doubts about their terms & conditions before signing a contract with the resort.

When is the Best Time to get married in Goa ?

It is always the best time to get married in Goa! The land where the fun never sets. However if you are looking to have a beach wedding or an outdoor reception then it's best to avoid the monsoon season in Goa which lasts from June to September.

The Goan wedding season begins by mid October until March when it starts getting hotter. The peak wedding season is between December to Febraury and the Super Peak Wedding period is between Dec 25th and 5th January. Certain days like the 24th & 25th of December, 31st of December, 14th of February and some other famous dates might cost you much more than a regular day. Weekend dates might also be heavily booked so it is important that you book your resort or venue well in advance.

Can I Bring my Own Wedding Caterer and Beverages To a Venue or Resort in Goa ?

Each Wedding Venue in Goa has its own policies for Food & Beverages. Some Venues may charge a Venue Hire Fee and let you get your own Food & Beverages while others may give you an all inclusive deal with the catering included and charge you by the plate. Some venues may allow you to bring your own food at an extra cost and allow corkage per bottle served. 

Most Resorts in Goa do not allow you to bring your own caterer or beverages from an outdoor caterer. At the most you may be allowed to bring your own hard liquor and you would be charged a corkage per bottle. However there are a few resorts that would be willing to let their kitchens to be used by outdoor caterers especially when the entire resort rooms have been booked for your event.

We can also provide you with world-class outdoor catering and beverage management services for your wedding in Goa. Visit www.GoaWeddingCaterers.com for more details.
