Apart from the conveyance arrangement being made by the families, another report came in recently wherein it was shared that the families have hired an event management company, who will be the in-charge to create a water-world built on pontoons and boats. Basically, the plan involves setting up a massive pontoon on one of the ghats of Lake Pichola. According to the DNA report, a source had stated, “They have requested one at the Udai Vilas Ghat that can accommodate 1,000 guests at a time.”
The source also revealed that multiple flat-bottomed boats will also float on the lake, which will hold a huge idol of the Ambani’s revered deity, Lord Shrinath ji. The source further shared, “The family has requested a floral set up on the vessel holding the idol of Shrinathji. Dancers will perform on the floating stage, in keeping with Indian customs and traditions. The hosts also plan to conduct a maha aarti to seek blessings of their lord.”
Looks like the preparations have begun and the set-up is almost ready for the pre-wedding festivities to begin. A picture on social media is getting viral, from Udaipur, wherein we can see a huge idol of the Ambani’s revered deity, Lord Shrinath ji. Take a look:

Meanwhile, there is also no confirmation on this as well, but in an Instagram post by Joseph Radhik featuring Priyanka Chopra and Isha Ambani, from former’s sangeet ceremony, is indicative of his role at the latter's wedding. Joseph Radhik captioned the pic as, "That moment when the Sangeet wraps up and evverryyyone gets on stage! Also, one of those happy moments when you see two Stories brides on stage!"
