Meanwhile, 2018 also saw a lot of parties one after another in the entertainment sphere as a lot of celeb weddings took place this year. But it was undoubtedly the Isha Ambani- Anand Piramal wedding that caught all eyes with its grandeur. So much so that Ambanis have become a theme for our neighbouring country Pakistan. A Karachi weekend party called Decemberistan had a theme of Ambani wedding. Not $100 Million But Isha Ambani's Wedding To Cost Approximately $15 Million!
Decemberistan is a time when people of Karachi indulge in big parties and this time it only got bigger. According to a report in The Print, Decemberistan is "a fleeting psychological and physical condition brought on by seasonal displacement when a false sense of mass euphoria and wellbeing affects the population of urban Pakistan" and amidst the cold weather, affluent non-resident Pakistanis come together for a short period. With a theme, to do it like the Ambanis, it is now being called the craziest bash in Karachi of this season.

The Ambani's wedding pictures, videos were shared widely on social media. Taking cues from them, this party saw much opulence in every bit. There were white flowers, chandeliers, fake diamond, gold and crystals used in the decorations. One of the signboards near the drinks counter had a gold cut-out of the name Ambani.

To make up for the absence of the Bollywood stars, some wore masks of them. Designer, Deepak Perwani wore a mask of Amitabh Bachchan. He was quoted to The Print report, "There was a bevvy of stars at the Ambani wedding — I picked Big B’s look because it was easy to emulate. After all, Mr Bachchan is the king of Bollywood and as the king of Pakistani fashion, I had to glam it up." Not wanting to miss out on anything or even the performances, Frieha Altaf a model-turned-choreographer appeared like Beyoncé. Decemberistan thus saw massive inspiration from Ambani wedding when it came to taking things grand this time.
