India is preparing for what could be one of the world's most lavish weddings, a spectacle that could even put the fictional nuptials in Crazy Rich Asians to shame.

Who are Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal?

The bride-to-be Isha Ambani along with her mother Nita Ambani and Hillary Clinton visited Swadesh Bazaar, an initiative of Reliance Foundation celebrating 108 traditional crafts and art forms of India.

We're not sure if celebrities are exhausted of attending one wedding after another but social media remains abuzz with memes and amusing tweets on the Bollywood wedding season.

Other celebrity guests included Hillary Clinton (who has known the Ambani family for over a decade, according to Reuters), Beyoncé and Arianna Huffington.

The wedding festivities, which also include a two-day pre-wedding extravaganza in Udaipur, are expected to cost upward of Dollars 10 million, say Reliance insiders, though some reports pegged the tab at USD 100 million for India Inc's most expensive wedding.

"Isha Ambani's wedding is a flawless example of the wealth inequality in India", wrote one Twitter user.

The extravagant wedding of Indian actress Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas earlier this month - attended by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi - was straight out of a Bollywood film.

There were 600 family members, friends and close associates at the wedding, quite modest in comparison to some other Indian weddings.

It comes on the heels of several recent Indian weddings competing for glamour, excess and attention.
