Sonam Kapoor's wedding with Delhi-based businessman beau Anand Ahuja, which would take place on May 8th, will no doubt be one of the biggest Bollywood weddings of the year. Sonam's mehendi and sangeet celebrations kicked off with pomp at Sunteck Signature Island in Bandra Kurla Complex.
Friend Anaita Shroff Adajania shared an image of Sonam on Instagram, in which the Veere Di Wedding actress looked ethereal in an ivory and gold lehenga with embellished with ornate gold jewellery. The pre-wedding festivities saw family and friends in attendance, which consisted of the who's who of Bollywood. There were rumours earlier that designers Abu-Sandeep, Anamika Khanna and Anuradha Vakil have been roped in to make her outfits. There is also buzz that she might opt for a made-to-order Ralph & Russo ensemble for the reception.

The wedding ceremony on May 8 will be followed by a grand reception in the evening at a five-star hotel in Andheri. The families of Sonam and Anand, who have been dating for over two years now, announced their wedding last week in an official joint statement.
