Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s mehendi is one BIG celebration
With all of Bollywood in tow
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja are slowly warming us up to their D-day with celebrations that are only quadrupling in size. Last night, the couple had an intimate gathering over at Sonam’s bungalow in Juhu, Mumbai, with close family members and friends in tow. Today, the function is in full swing at Bandra’s The Sunteck, Signature Island, with the crème de la crème of the Bollywood industry attending. With a special colour-coded theme of white traditional outfits, the bride-to-be has chosen a resplendent lehenga choli in white and gold from couturiers Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, who reportedly had multiple teams working on this ensemble, collectively taking 18 months to handcraft it. (Side note: So Sonam and Anand have been planning their wedding for the last 18 months? Hmm).
Sonam rounds off the elegant ensemble with an elaborate maang tikka, jhumkas, a pearl choker and bangles. Smokey and kohl-rimmed eyes, pink lips and a light blush give her a radiant glow.
The hairstyle, with the use of gajra, is exactly what we predicted is going to be trending this summer. (Check out the best designer-approved summer wedding hairstyles here.)
Anand complements Sonam in a white embellished kurta, bandi and silk pyjamas, all from Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. Of course, we know who’s behind all the planning.
Yes, Sonam’s taller than him, and the year is 2018.

Who, by the way, is having the most fun:
Karan Johar adds an element of surprise to his floral kurta and pyjama set with his dazzling dupatta in shades of royal blue, olive green and crimson red.

Shanaya Kapoor looks dainty in a light gold A-line lehenga and off-shoulder choli, rounded off with a dupatta, statement neckpiece and a potli bag. Don’t miss the hairstyle, yet another one perfect for a summer wedding.
Sisters Jahnvi and Khushi Kapoor stay true to their sartorial sensibilities and pick elegant lehenga choli sets complete with statement jewellery.

Shilpa Shetty Kundra gives the white theme a colourful touch. We’re loving the gold juttis.
