Katy Perry and Russell Brand's days of singlehood are quickly dwindling.

E! News has learned exclusively that celeb pals like Rihanna and Matt Kemp are leaving the states to attend the wedding in India—which is set to take place next week!

While we can't pinpoint the exact date of the vow-swap (some reports have pegged it as next Tuesday), Perry and Brand are planning a lavish days-long extravaganza celebrating their coupling.

Guests were given advance notice in the summer so they could get any needed shots and or visas.

Right now we're hearing that the I-do's will go down at the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, the same location where Brand proposed to Perry over New Year's following a whirlwind romance.

While the hotel has not confirmed it is hosting the Perry-Brand nuptials, the resort does boast about its first-class traditional wedding packages.

Processionals start at the gate of the hotel with the bridegroom sitting on a beautifully decorated horse that is escorted by camels and elephants. Folk dancers then welcome the couple with a traditional routine, fireworks and a special buggi (horse-driven cart) ushering them into the main garden for the wedding. 

Of course, the couple would still need to have a civil ceremony in the U.S. for their union to be recognized here.

Wonder if there will be elephants at that one?
