It’s not every day that the bonafide fashionista of Bollywood gets hitched, so when she is all set to tie the knot with the man of her dreams – a chic affair is the least expectation! Quite truly, the team bride and her brigade notched up the ante at the Mehendi ceremony last night. The big fat Indian wedding of Sonam Kapoor and businessman Anand Ahuja is touted to be a gala 3-day affair. The venue for the wedding is the plush Bandra bungalow that reportedly belongs to Sonam's aunt Kavita Singh. The venue for the Mehendi ceremony was Anil Kapoor’s Mumbai home that was lit up like a starry sky. A close-knit family affair, the wedding brigade included sister Rhea Kapoor, brother Harshvardhan Kapoor, cousins – Janhvi Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Anshula Kapoor, Akshay Marwah and Mohit Marwah. Additionally, fashion designers Shehlaa Khan, Kunal Rawal, fashion stylist Tanya Ghavri made their fashionable presence felt. The bride and her team opted for subtlety as they danced the night away for the wedding of the year. The trending #SonamKiShaadi was captioned with a cute tagline, every day is phenomenal and we couldn’t agree more!
