(Newser) – The daughter of India's richest man is about to say "I do" and she's invited some of America's most recognizable names in business, politics, and entertainment to help her celebrate. Per USA Today, Isha Ambani's guest list includes Beyoncé, Hillary Clinton and Arianna Huffington. The wedding will take place in Mumbai, but the party has already started at pre-wedding events in the city of Udaipur, where Clinton was snapped smiling alongside the bride's billionaire father, Mukesh Ambani. And, because it's not an heiress's party without top-notch private entertainment, Beyoncé performed some of her best known hits during the festivities and posted a photo of herself on Instagram sporting an Indian-inspired ensemble.

Per Reuters, the Clintons share a long history with the Ambanis and Mrs. Clinton just this past March was treated to dinner with the family at their 27-floor private residence. Mukesh Ambani is the chairman of India's most valuable company, Reliance Industries. He has a reported net worth of $47 billion. With that kind of dough, it's no shock his daughter and her guests will be treated to nothing but the best when she weds 33-year-old realty executive Anand Piramal on Wednesday. ("Very Philly wedding" had a very unexpected guest.)
