A ‘wedding’ for us South-Asians as we all know, is not only a matter of two lives (or in some cases death too 🙂 ) but also, a matter of power show and social status.

Such weddings especially entail flamboyant family meetups with all of the members of the family tree, high profile meet-overs with family friends, a gaudy show of expensive bridal attire and accessories, Rishta hunting for the young and single, gossip platforms and feasts with lots of BBQ for the people.What Went Down At Ambani's Elaborate Pre-Wedding Bash.

Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s wedding was going to be no different, therefore, the family thought of putting up a fine show at the pre-wedding bash alone which leaves us stunned at the level of grandeur of the celebrations and also bewildered at how far can human desire for luxury, and lavishness extends.

Before we dig deep into the details of the lavish function, it is important to note that the Ambani family commenced the festivities with a special task, the “Anna Seva”. It is the feeding of 5,100 people (a majority of them with a special ability) three times, every day to help bring peace and prosperity to the family and the bride and groom.

The three-day event kicked off in Udaipur from 7th to 10th of December. Half the Udaipur was rented, a Manish Malhotra store was put up and a small marketplace set up especially for the guests arriving at the function. The airport at Udaipur had to make arrangements for 200 chartered planes over the weekend for the guests arriving at the wedding. The names of high-profile Indian families, former US first lady Hillary Clinton to add a foreign class and BEYONCE as the cherry on the top could be seen in the list.

All the glitter and gold was theatrically put up to create the biggest hype in the media and make this wedding the next ‘talk of the town’ especially after the Deepveer and Nickyanka weddings we saw recently. The couple will tie the knot on 12th of December in Mumbai and we can’t wait to see how the extravagance will unfold!
