Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal's wedding invitation was a tribute to their grandparents. The floral-themed invite was decorated with a wreath of flowers, where each bloom was specifically chosen to personify qualities and values that their grandmothers embody. 

It featured a chant, and the Om symbol around a monogram comprising the couple’s initials. On opening, the card played the Gayatri Mantra and housed a handwritten note written by the bride-to-be on her and her fiancée’s behalf, where she paid an ode to their grandparents, who the two call their role models.

The Wedding 

The wedding that was rumoured to cost around US$100 million with Beyoncé performing got a lot of airtime at the time, but more intimate details remained unknown.

Isha allowed her mother, Nita Ambani, to take over the wedding plans. In an interview with Vogue India, she said her mother was the “CEO and I was the chairperson”.

“I was never someone who dreamt of how my wedding would be, yet it was wonderful in more ways than I can imagine,” she told Vogue India.

Legendary artist Lata Mangeshkar recorded a rendition of the Gayatri Mantra, a Ganesh stuti or prayer, for the couple. The recording was played during the wedding rituals and added a sense of tradition to the celebration, reports Bollywoodshaadis.

Ahead of the recording, Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan explained the significance of the rendition to guests, according to The Economic Times.

The 16-panel outfit by designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, which reportedly cost around US$12 million, was hand-embroidered and the tulle dupatta – a traditional shawl – had a 20-meter trail. But many people might not know that the lavish outfit was in fact a tribute to her mother Nita.

According to Vogue India, she incorporated her mother’s wedding sari into her wedding dress by draping it as a dupatta.
