The Best Affordable Wedding Venues in Cairo

Getting married in Cairo can be an expensive affair. Wedding venues are charging far too much for their space, especially five-star hotels. In addition, there are many more expenses to consider such as catering, decoration, lighting, entertainment, and so on. But the wedding day is just the tip of the iceberg. The groom is expected to own a ready-to-move apartment, and sometimes gold and dowries can be involved. These societal pressures and a culture of extravagance put a severe financial burden on couples and their families.

Unfortunately, it gets worse. Egypt’s ailing economy, high unemployment rates and the perpetually plummeting value of the Egyptian pound can spell disaster for couples wanting to tie the knot. What is supposed to be a magical event celebrating the love between a couple can seem like a grim prospect soured by talk of money and calculations.

To bring back some of that magic and help couples save some money, we’ve compiled a list of what we believe are the best affordable wedding venues in Cairo. We chose the venues based on value for money, reviews, service, food, and location. Please let us know if we are missing any affordable wedding venues you believe should be included in our article. Or, if you have had a good or bad experience with any of the listed venues, please let us know in the comments section below. Your feedback will be valuable to couples getting married in the future.

1Bayt Al Mansoreya

Thanks to Aya Ibrahim and Yasser Ahmed’s long-awaited nuptials, we were able to track down their fairytale wedding venue. Bayt Al Mansoreya is a family-owned house in a remote location on the outskirts of west Cairo channeling mystical vibes and a homey feel.

The house is rustic with hints of Arabesque designs adding allure to the wedding venue, while a pool takes centre stage and adds a bright touch to Bayt Al Mansoreya. The flourishing gardens make excellent spaces to walk down the aisle and dance until the sun sets on this stunning wedding venue. The flowering shrubs are the perfect backdrop for boho-inspired wedding photos.

After a conversation with the lovely owner, we were told that they have no interest in turning their beautiful home into a commercialized venue. Instead, they are hoping to keep the experience intimate and exclusive. Events do not run every day of the month, meaning that your wedding day will feel truly special and personal.

The starting rate for booking the venue is 40,000 EGP for 100 guests. This includes two rooms for the bride and groom and a whole-day rental of the outdoor space. Couples will need to hire their own vendors. It is important to note that Bayt Al Mansoreya is a private residence, so only the open-air areas are accessible.

Egypt’s favourite Instagram couple, Aya Ibrahim and Yasser Ahmed, have wowed millions of people with their endearing wedding shots at Bayt Al Mansoreya to the point that the owner has reported that their phone would not stop ringing after.

2Nūt Boutique Farm Lodge

Nūt Farm Lodge is a boutique venue comprised of stone buildings with an earthy feel. This is one of the most charming wedding venues in Cairo, offering a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. A dance floor overlooks the pool in the central space, while gardens envelop the entire location. Nūt is one of the easy-to-reach wedding venues in Cairo, and their valet service makes the experience better. 

While you will need to find vendors for your wedding needs, two rooms are provided for the bride and groom to get their glam on with the option to stay overnight. Nūt Farm Lodge is a spacious outdoor venue for the bohemian wedding of your dreams.

The arabesque designs and the bridal suites with high ceilings make Nūt Farm Lodge one of the most beautifully designed wedding venues in Cairo. Its vintage feel, clean bathrooms, and cosy ambience are perfect for low-key couples looking to stray away from excessive flash.

You are free to pick your favourite vendors and wedding planner(s) at Nūt Farm Lodge. In terms of pricing, Nūt Farm Lodge charges a rental fee of 70,000 EGP for a party of 100. It is not the cheapest wedding venue in Cairo, but we believe the charming setting and smooth overall experience is worth the investment.

3Taj Wedding Venue

Taj Wedding Venue provides a pastoral escape with its red brick buildings and luscious grassy fields. Palm trees encapsulate the spacious venue, so prepare to have your nuptials in a nature-filled location on Ismailia Desert Road.

The outdoor wedding venue is a go-to choice for couples looking for a more isolated location to feel the night breeze as they dance the night away.

Taj is one of the newer wedding venues in Cairo, and the owners are passionate about giving the space for couples to have the night of their dreams. Wedding packages for 100 guests range from 25,000 EGP to 35,000 EGP – depending on the couples’ needs.

Buffet prices range from 160 EGP to 250 EGP per person, while the DJs are at no extra charge. Portable AC units and tents are at an extra charge but are definitely a smart choice given Cairo’s unpredictable weather. The party ends at 12 AM but can extend a bit later if guests are too amped up to leave. Unlike most wedding venues in Cairo, Taj provides lighting, removing much of the added cost.

4Seasons Country Club

With an air of opulence, Seasons Country Club on Alexandria Desert Road is worth looking into as it blends class with grass. What sets the wedding venue apart from its counterparts is its air-conditioned indoor hall resembling a huge greenhouse.

The all-glass tent gives guests a peek into nature with flowers and trees dominating the scene. Picture this: you walk down the aisle while guests stand in the garden marvelling at your beauty, everyone congratulates you while you walk towards the enclosed location and they follow, then you’re transported into a cool haven where the set-up is just as you had imagined.

Seasons Country Club is a smart choice for spring/summer weddings – if you care about your guests enough not to let them melt under the hot Cairene sun. It also alleviates much of the pressure of finding vendors as it offers buffet packages – ranging from 900 EGP to 1,500 EGP per person – tailored to your liking. A variety of stations, appetizers, main courses, and desserts are offered at Seasons Country Club for picky eaters and foodies.

The Cairo Wedding venue has a list of DJs and wedding planners to choose from, making your brainstorming sessions easier and shorter. If you’re opting for an open-air wedding, the garden rental costs a kind 20,000 EGP. For those hoping to escape the Cairene heat, the air-conditioned tent rental is 30,000 EGP. It is worth noting that the music stops at 10 PM, which is a great excuse for couples looking to have a short yet sweet wedding.
