Massive flower arrangements

On March 1, the first day of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s pre-wedding festivities was celebrated as 'An Evening in Everland', where guests wore elegant cocktail attire. Fashion designer Manish Malhotra shared a picture on Instagram Stories with American floral designer Jeff Leatham, who was responsible for all the intricate flower arrangements at the extravaganza. Known for his work with reality TV star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian and the rest of her family, Jeff created larger-than-life white, pink and purple flower arrangements for the night.

Animals and forest-inspired day-time event

On March 2, art inspired by India was the decor theme as the Ambanis hosted 'A Walk on the Wildside' with 'jungle fever' being the dress code. Held outdoors in the Ambanis' animal rescue centre Vantara in Jamnagar, the event featured peacock and jaguar motifs on chairs and furnishings. Forests, birds and animals could be found on everything from carepts to walls.

In the evening, the guests proceeded to 'Mela Rouge'. The Moulin Rouge-inspired carnival was the most opulent event of the Ambani celebrations featuring yellow bulbs and chandeliers and the bold use of red colour. Making it even more dramatic and romantic were large-scale red floral installations. 

Mirrors on ceilings to a glittering golden and red carousel, the Ambanis were not kidding, when they called their pre-wedding sangeet night 'Mela Rouge'. On March 3, for the 'Maha Aarti', the decor was inspired by India and featured lots of white floral strings and lighting.
