Episode Summary

The wedding of Varuni and Minesh will take place in San Antonio, Texas, in front of 1100 guests, at an estimated cost of over $1.6 million! Spanning multiple events over four days, the celebrations begin on Thursday at Varuni's Father's house, dubbed the "wedding house," which has been decorated with tenting, food and floral arrangements at a cost of $20k. Themes for all the events are based on the colors of peacock feathers, including aquas, turquoise and blues. At Friday's "Gowri Pooja" ceremony, the bride receives prayer items, including many silvers, intended for her to give to her new family. That same night's rehearsal dinner will involve 700 guests and cost $300k! It features the groom sitting on a decorated stage as the women attendees perform a ritual dance called the Garba. When the wedding ceremony finally arrives, it will feature the bride in one of her ten, $2k outfit changes, complimented by over $300k in gold jewelry. Fifteen of Varuni's late mother's saris will be placed throughout the ceremony in order to bring her presence to the proceedings. Dramatic peacock-inspired centerpieces will punctuate the reception, while the ballroom scenery will change every few hours with adjustments in lighting. Elaborate gifts, like a $12k watch for the groom and $50k in jewelry and clothing, will be exchanged during the reception. A host of other unique touches will make this wedding an authentic, one-of-a-kind experience.moreless
