The Indian wedding industry is estimated to sit at US$50 billion and is giving the term “big fat wedding” a whole new meaning.

When the daughter of Asia’s richest man decided to tie the knot with a billionaire tycoon’s son, you would expect it to be nothing short of majestic . The celebrations spanned across three different locations: first an engagement party in Lake Como, Italy, followed by a sangeet party at a palace in Udaipur and finally the wedding at the Ambani residence in Mumbai. The elaborate wedding included over 100 chartered flights, a private concert by Beyoncé and high-profile attendees like Hillary Clinton, Arianna Huffington, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra. To top it all off, the families expressed their gratitude to the city of Udaipur by feeding 5,100 people for four days. Sushanto Roy and Richa Ahuja, and Seemanto Roy and Chandni Toor Estimated cost: US$75 Million Back in 2004, Subrata Roy, chairman of Sahara India Pariwar, held a double wedding celebration for his sons Sushanto and Seemanto, who married Richa Ahuja and Chandni Toor respectively. The Sahara India township in Lucknow, India, was transformed into a fairy tale for the grand affair. No detail was left unembellished– there were even golden napkins on the planes used to transport guests. For entertainment, there was live music by the British Symphony Orchestra while famous Indian choreographer Shiamak Davar took centre stage with world-class dancers. A scrumptious array of over 100 different cuisines were presented not just to the 11,000 guests, but reportedly to 150,000 homeless people too. The Roy family also sponsored the marriages of 101 underprivileged girls as part of the celebrations. The Ambanis, reunited: their first public gathering of 2021 Brahmani and Rajeev Reddy Estimated cost: US$74 million In 2016, the Indian government decided to demonetise over 80 per cent of its currency in circulation. But the widespread disruption didn’t stop mining baron Gali Janardhan Reddy from hosting a grand wedding for his only daughter. The wedding of Brahmani Reddy to Rajeev Reddy, the son of a Hyderabad-based businessman, took place in the Bangalore Palace grounds and hosted over 50,000 guests. The famous ceremony even made the news before it actually happened. The wedding invites, which were sent out months in advance, included an LCD screen that played a choreographed song featuring the entire Reddy family, as well as a silver Ganesha figure. At the ceremony itself, the bride wowed in a Kanjeevaram sari worth around US$2.3 million and jewellery worth a whopping US$12 million.

Over 200 chefs, butlers and assistants were flown into Spain from India and Thailand, reported Times of India , while Michelin-starred chef Sergi Arola made sure all guests were treated to an indulgent meal indeed. The couple also cut a six-tier cake that weighed 60kg while helicopters flew over the wedding venue to capture every angle of the elaborate celebrations.
