The Maldives is a breathtakingly gorgeous archipelago of islands located in the Indian Ocean, about 500 miles off the coast of India. With its breathtakingly beautiful coral reefs, white sandy beaches and crystal clear blue waters, it’s no wonder why the Maldives is one of the most popular destinations for destination weddings.
When it comes to planning your dream wedding in the Maldives, one of the most important questions that couples need to answer is how much it will cost. While destination weddings can be costly, they don’t have to break the bank and there are ways to make your special day more affordable.
The price of a destination wedding in the Maldives can vary greatly depending on several factors such as your desired location, size of the wedding party, type of ceremony and reception you want and other various expenses such as transportation and accommodations for your guests. On average, couples can expect to spend anywhere from $30,000-$50,000 USD on their destination wedding in the Maldives.
When budgeting for your destination wedding in the Maldives, it’s important to keep in mind that there are several costs that may not be included in package deals offered by resorts or other vendors. These additional costs may include airfare for you and your guests; transportation from airport/resort; food & beverage costs; decorations; photography & videography services; entertainment; spa treatments; permits & fees associated with getting married abroad; marriage license fees etc.
