Could Katy and Russell's Indian Wedding Be Any More Epic?

Attention all you wedding-bell wackos! Bride-to-be babe Katy Perry and fiancé Russell Brand touched down in the city of Japiur, India, this week to round up the finishing touches on their Punjabi-esque nuptials set for this weekend.

Katy may be a Cali girl at heart, but she and funnyguy Russ are fully embracing the country's wedding traditions, but by no means are they forgetting to pack their L.A. glam.

From Hollywood to Bollywood...

Upon the love birds' landing in India's Japiur Airport, K.P., or should we say K.B., was spotted wearing a nath, an Indian bridal nose ring, as she hopped into an ultra-blacked-out Mercedes.

The singer tried to cover her face and new nose wear, but onlookers still managed to catch a glimpse of her something-new prior to the epically exotic extravaganza.  

Come on, Katy, your American self should know it's the groom who isn't allowed to see your glowing face before the vow exchange, duh!

Fab wedding guests, like maid of honor Rihanna and her rumored BF Matt Kemp, have gotten their visas, vaccinations and required native wardrobes in order (airfare was on Katy, of course). They've all been trickling into the sand-dune destination along with the couple's parentals this week.

The Perry-Brand prewedding week of festivities, which we hear started Tuesday, will lead up to the big day on Saturday at the Rambagh Palace, the same spot where her beau proposed to her on New Year's last year.

As the happy couple's guests enjoy safari and sand surfing, the sun-kissed bride will be prepping for her gloriously overdone day, where she is expected to be tatted up with henna-heavy hands, in true Indian tradition.

The singer and comedian reportedly hired famous celeb wedding planner Mindy Weiss, who has done weddings for starlettes like Eva Longoria, Gwen Stefani and La La Vazquez, and you'd best believe she is herding up elephants, camels and even a white horse!

Yes, reports say that the guru groom plans on arriving by white horse, a customary element in all celebrations of Hindu coupling.

So if Russell gets the horse, does Katy get to stampede the alter by elephant? Hope so!
