But the truth is, no one can really anticipate exactly what the big day will be like or how much we’ll actually be able to afford.
Unless, of course, you’re the daughter of the richest man in India and have the means to hire the one and only Beyoncé to perform at your pre-wedding party.
Over the weekend, while the rest of us were binge-watching Netflix or having one too many glasses of wine, Queen Bey performed at a private pre-wedding party in India.
Beyoncé shared her goddess-like pre-wedding attire in an IG post which garnered a casual 5.6 million likes. #Flawless
The pre-wedding party, which I can only assume is like a rehearsal dinner for rich people, was in honor of Isha Ambani, the daughter of India’s wealthiest man.
In case you were wondering, Isha’s dad (Mukesh Ambani) is a business magnate who is the largest shareholder of Reliance Industries Limited. His net worth is estimated at roughly $43.5 billion—yes, Billion with a B!
According to the Washington Post, Isha has degrees from Yale and Stanford and sits on the board of directors for India’s largest retailer and its largest 4G network.
And apparently being the daughter of India’s richest man means you can afford to hire Beyoncé.
In all of her glory.
Can you imagine? You roll up to this pre-wedding party and the queen herself struts on stage!?
Oh. My. God.
Unsurprisingly, the Twitterverse has a lot of questions.
First of all, how rich do you have to be to have BEYONCÉ perform at your wedding?!

The most important question is…if Beyoncé is performing for a “PRE-WEDDING” event for the daughter of India’s Richest Man…
Who did they get to perform at the actual wedding?

You know your dad is rich when he can afford to hire Beyonce to sing at your PRE-wedding party. What do you do for the actual wedding — pay someone to resurrect John Lennon? https://t.co/lc1AbIFyjq

But really, though.
I want “Beyoncé sang at my wedding” money.
