On March 8, the Kien Giang provincial authorities held a press conference to announce the official information on the couple's magnificent wedding, the first of its kind in Vietnam.

Le Van Chuyen, Deputy Head of Kien Giang provincial Department of Information and Communications, said that the invitation to the Indian couple, Kaabia Grewal and Rushang Shah, was made on a working trip by the Kien Giang provincial leaders to India in late 2018.

"In order for the bride and groom's families to accept the invitation to hold the wedding in Phu Quoc island, there was an active role of Vietnamese Ambassador to India Pham Sanh Chau," Chuyen said.

The event is an opportunity for Kien Giang to promote its tourism, especially wedding party tourism, a newly developed type of tourism in the world. Meanwhile, it is also an opportunity to expand the people-to-people relations between the two countries.

Representative of Sun Group, the investor of the JW Marriott resort, said the resort has welcomed and successfully organised wedding ceremonies for many famous couples in the world, but Kaabia and Rushang’s was the first among Indian billionaires.

A total of 700 guests, as well as dozens of tonnes of goods, costumes, jewellery and props have been transported from India directly to Phu Quoc Island.

Nguyen Viet Thong, Deputy Head of Kien Giang Department of External Affairs, said that, in order for the Indian couple's wedding to be successful, the locality has made efforts to create the best conditions for them. The Vietnamese Embassy in India and the agencies in Kien Giang have worked with multiple ministries and functional agencies so that the bride and groom's families can invite a total of 700 guests as well as transport dozens of tonnes of goods, costumes, jewellery and props from India straight to Phu Quoc Island.

The organiser of the event, India-based Horizon company, said that the wedding takes place continuously for seven days from March 3 to 10 with 11 major events. In particular, the most important part takes place at JW Marriott Phu Quoc from March 7 to 10, featuring a Pink Party requiring all guests to wear pink costumes and another party focused on ethnic costumes.

The first party in the Rushang - Kaabia billionaire wedding party series takes place at the 5-star Phu Quoc resort, which has the effect of Gatsby.

The wedding programme also has other interesting activities for guests from India, such as a running competition, lantern making, hat painting, watching marine creatures, music performances and opera singing.
