First thing first, we highly recommend you to find and book the wedding venue as soon as your wedding dates get fixed and you have finalized your guest list. Because generally good banquet halls in Delhi for wedding are not easily available and get booked in 6-9 months advance during the peak wedding season. Also, while you are looking for a wedding venue always keep your wedding budget in mind as well as the venue’s capacity and in-house services you want.
