On average, the wedding in Montenegro cost can range anywhere from €10,000 to €50,000 or more. This might seem like a broad range, but as we mentioned earlier, there are many variables to consider.

Wedding Budget Breakdown in Montenegro

As we mentioned above, the wedding budget is composed of many things. Let’s consider the main ones.

🔹Wedding venue costs

This can be a wedding venue, restaurant, hall, banquet hall, hotel, estate, or other location. There are outdoor venues without toilets, rain, or sun shelters. They cost from €70 to €200. Villas usually require full rental for 3 nights, giving you the right to organize a wedding and the villa will be completely private for you. The cost varies greatly depending on the villa, but you can expect from €3,000 for 10 guests to €5, 500 for 25 guests for 3 nights. Another option is to rent a restaurant for a welcome drink and a wedding dinner. In addition to the cost of food and drinks, the establishment usually requires a fee for closing the restaurant for private service, which can cost from €1,500 to €20,000. In some cases, this may not be a closing fee, but rather a minimum deposit amount that you must pay.

🔹Decoration costs

This may include flowers, candles, candle holders, ribbons, and other decorative elements. The cost for a bridal bouquet typically starts from €100, but it is advisable to budget around €200 euros for the bride’s bouquet and slightly less for the bridesmaids. A boutonniere costs €20. If you wish to decorate the ceremony venue with live flowers, the cost can start from €800, but this would cover only a limited amount of flowers. For a more elaborate decoration, it is better to budget around €2,000 — €3, 000. If you plan to have a banquet with candles, and floral arrangements on tables and chairs, you should budget for a higher amount. The total cost will depend on the type of flowers you choose, with more exotic options such as peonies likely to be more expensive than standard roses.

🔹Photography and videography costs

This may include the services of a photographer and videographer, as well as additional expenses for photo and video equipment. In 2025, we offer photography services for €200/hour and videography for €250/hour. We have been shooting in Montenegro for over 9 years and know all the nuances of locations and lighting at different times of the year. We believe in capturing natural, candid moments without posing, and showing you as you truly are in the story. A typical wedding day is a minimum of 8 hours, but we have an amazing offer for photo and video coverage of 12 hours for €4, 990. You don’t have to worry about timing or deciding which moments to capture, as all the important moments will be covered. Please contact us for more details or check out our portfolio first.

Additional Expenses to Consider

Bridal attire and groom’s attire

This may include the bride’s dress, groom’s suit, accessories, jewelry, and other style elements. Unfortunately, there is almost no selection of dresses or suits in Montenegro, so we advise bringing everything with you.

Food and beverages

This may include catering services, drinks, cake, and other sweets. You can expect to pay from 45 euros per person for a set menu that includes cold and hot appetizers, as well as a main course. An open bar starts at 40 euros for 4 hours, and additional hours are charged separately.

Transportation

This may include rental cars, transportation for guests, taxis, boats or yachts, and other transportation expenses. It’s clear that the overall transportation expenses will vary depending on the departure and arrival locations, and the number of guests. Hence, it’s challenging to provide an accurate estimate of the prices. However, you can seek advice from a wedding planner who can assess the transportation expenses and give you precise numbers.

Makeup and hairstyling services

The bridal look for the bride starts from €200. In terms of time, it will take 2.5-3 hours. The makeovers for mothers or friends will be slightly cheaper, but they also require significantly less time — approximately 1 hour. The overall look is much simpler. Don’t expect a complex hairstyle to be done within the allotted time. And be sure to send the stylist a photo reference of the hairstyle and makeup you want.

Music for a wedding day

a DJ for the welcome drink and party time, live instrumental music for the ceremony or church choir for the wedding ceremony, and live musical bands for the party. A DJ can cost from €150-200 per hour, as well as a musician playing the violin or piano. Live music band can cost more per hour. Usually, the performers bring their own equipment, which is included in the price. However, additional lighting or disco balls may incur extra charges.

Entertainers 

to amuse guests during the party, national dance ensembles. 

Fireworks

From €1,500 for a minute. Can cost more or may be prohibited due to high fire hazard, as Montenegro can experience dry seasons with wildfires during the summer, and there may be additional risks that are restricted by authorities. There are alternatives in the form of cold lights, which are often used for the first dance, or large sparklers. Large sparklers are typically used as follows: guests with lit sparklers stand in two lines, creating a corridor, and the couple walks or runs through this corridor. This creates very beautiful photos and video footage.

Additional expenses

These may include expenses for invitations, souvenirs, guest gifts, furniture rentals and etc.
