Indian weddings are among those with the most ceremonies. The wealthy, who won't hesitate to bring Beyoncé in for a concert, is pushing things to an entirely new level of luxury.

1. Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal received 86 million dollars (7 billion rupees).

Mukesh Ambani, whose estimated net worth is $42 billion, went above and above to make sure his only daughter had a wedding to remember. The star-studded celebrations in 2018 were said to have cost 7 billion rupees and were spread out throughout Udaipur, Lake Como in Italy, and the Ambani mansion in Mumbai.

2. The dual wedding of Sushanto and Seemanto Roy cost 5.54 billion rupees.

The twin boys Sushanto and Seemanto, who were married in a dual ceremony in 2004, were the only offspring of the founder and chairman of the then multi-billion dollar company Sahara India Pariwar. In the Sahara Stadium in Lucknow, a fairy-tale wedding took place with elaborate décor. Almost 11,000 visitors attended over the course of a week, including several Bollywood superstars and athletes. Another remarkable event was Roy's simultaneous marriages for 110 ladies who couldn't afford their own nuptials.
3. Rajiv and Brahmani Reddy: 5 billion rupees

Mining tycoon and former politician Gali Janardhana Reddy's 5 billion rupee party grabbed news for all the wrong reasons in 2016 as he was criticized for holding an extravagant wedding for his only daughter in the middle of an Indian cash flow crisis.

The wedding ceremony, which was attended by 50,000 guests—including Bollywood celebrities and politicians—was the culmination of a five-day extravaganza at the Bangalore Palace for Reddy's daughter Brahmani and her husband Rajeev Reddy, the son of Hyderabad business mogul Vikram Dev Reddy.

4. Gulraj Behl and Srishti Mittal: 5 billion rupees

500 people attended the three-day Barcelona event, which featured a 60-kilogram, six-tier wedding cake and food prepared by Spanish celebrity chef Sergi Arola. For the event, over 200 butlers and cooks were transported into Spain from India and Thailand.

On top of a hill, at the National Museum of Catalan Art, the major wedding ceremony took place. Photographers and videographers rented helicopters to film the celebrations from all sides.

5. Vanisha Mittal and Amit Bhatia: 2.4 billion rupees

When Lakshmi Mittal, a steel magnate, wed his daughter Vanisha to London banker Amit Bhatia in 2004, it was then the largest wedding celebration ever recorded.

The six-day event, which was spread out over several Parisian sites, included performances by Kylie Minogue and Bollywood celebrities Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Famous Bollywood playwright and poet Javed Akhtar even wrote the screenplay for a play that the Mittal family performed during a pre-wedding ceremony.

Special fireworks blasted from the Eiffel Tower marked the evening's conclusion.

6. 140 crores for Sanjay Hinduja and Anu Mahtani

Malaika, Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer, and even Nicole Scherzinger and Jennifer Lopez performed during the event, which featured cuisine from 16 different nations and 16,000 guests driven about in BMWs.

Around 200 crores: Vanisha Mittal and Amit Bhatia

7. Vanisha Mittal, the daughter of Laxmi Mittal, wed Amit Bhatia in 2004 over a three-day ceremony in France.

The celebrations included a who's who of Bollywood on the guest list, a private performance by Kylie Minogue, and a fireworks show in the grounds of the Eiffel Tower, breaking the record for the most expensive wedding of the year. The actual wedding took place at the revered 17th-century castle Vaux-le-Vicomte.

8. Yogita Jaunapuria and Lalit Tanwar: 250 crore

Lalit Tanwar and Yogita Jaunapuria's Delhi wedding in 2011 set new benchmarks for what flamboyance looks like, with gifts including a helicopter given to the groom, a safari outfit, a shawl, and $2,100 in cash and silver coins given to each guest, as well as a performance by actor Neha Dhupia.

9. Navin Fabiani and Sonam Vaswani: 210 crore

The marriage of billionaires Vaswani and Fabiani served as a cautionary tale. The #SoNavSoFab wedding was held in Vienna, Austria, and Bruno Mars gave a performance there. The wedding took place at the Belvedere Palace, the mehendi ceremony was performed in Vienna's Palais Liechtenstein Park and featured a performance by Sukhbir. The event was billed as the most opulent wedding of the year.

10. Priya Sachdev and Vikram Chatwal: $100 million

Hotelier and actor Vikram Chatwal's marriage to model Priya Sachdev in 2006 was a good illustration of how extravagant a wedding can truly be, lasting 10 days and taking place in three locations. Lakshmi Mittal, Naomi Campbell, Patricia Velásquez, Prince Nikolaos of Greece, former US President Bill Clinton, musician P. Diddy, and others were among the national and international superstars that attended. Unfortunately, the couple separated in 2011 after 5 years of marriage.
