Sonam Kapoor has conveniently jumped to the top spot of India’s trending topics, thanks to her just-released promo of her forthcoming film, Veere Di Wedding, and the major excitement leading up to her marriage which is finally happening today. #SonamKiShaddi is the number trend on most social platforms since the announcement was made of her marriage.
As every blushing bride does, Sonam has worked out hard to look her best at her D-day. And when it is a celebrity wedding like hers, the benchmarks of fashion and glamour get higher. Look at her bride ensemble after her ‘chooda‘ and ‘kaleera‘ ceremony and you’ll not agree more:
Sonam’s pre-wedding festivities kicked off in style with a star-studded Mehndi and Sangeet functions, both of which saw a bandwagon of biggest names in Bollywood. It all began with her Mehndi function in which she looked Sonam and her husband-to-be Anand, twined in their pink ensembles. Check out some moments:
Post the Mehndi ceremony, the focus shifted to the Sangeet party, in which the bride-to-be wore a beautiful gold embellished lehenga-choli by ace deigners Abu Jani–Sandeep Khosla, along with Kundan choker set and flowers adorning her long tresses into a braid.
The couple’s famous friends came in full attendance to the functions and this included Jacqueline Fernandez, Rani Mukerji, Shilpa Shetty, Rekha, Arjun Kapoor, Karan Johar, Katrina Kaif amongst others.
Actress Shilpa Shetty shared this live video from Sonam’s ‘Chooda’ ceremony:

And the ‘Sangeet’ functions began on a happy note!
While the Sangeet ceremony is all about dance and fun moves, this couple didn’t leave any chance to miss out their part of the fun. DJ Badshah rocked the dance floor and everyone was in a good mood. Check out some videos:
This couple totally rocks!
It’s this part of the celebrations which is getting viral on social media – the ‘Kaleera‘ ceremony and it was as adorable as the other functions that day. For the unknown, the ‘Kaleera’ ceremony is one in which the Punjabi bride shakes off the ‘kalire’ on the heads of unmarried girls, be it her cousins or friends, in a fun intention. Point is, if any part or leaf of the ‘kalire’ drops off on their head, they are said to be the next bride!
Sonam is seen enthusiastically doing the ritual on her besties. Pooja captioned her Insta story, “Look, I’m staying single.” Check out the video here:
Then came her BFF Jacqueline Fernandez’s turn, and boy, was she relieved! Her expressions in the end are worth it!
However, it was the moment which everyone waited for – when Sonam Kapoor would be the typical big sister and showers her ‘Kaleera’s on Jahnvi Kapoor’s head. It is believed that next in line for wedding is the person on whose head the bride’s kaleere falls.
The sisters twined in their gorgeous outfits but it was the moment when Sonam’s floral haathphools were to be shaken hard on Jahnvi’s head. In the video going crazily viral, Janhvi is praying the kalires don’t fall off on her and she’s not the next bride! Check out the video here:
Though Sonam tried her best to make Jahnvi the next target, she fell short of a few moments and to Janhvi’s relief, that did not happen. But it was how cutely that Sonam says, “Sorry Jaanu” is what has given us #sistergoals forever!
At Sonam’s wedding, Jahnvi looked ethereal with that emerald choker and white ensemble.
While Janhvi is definitely not next in the line for big fat Punjabi wedding in the family, we are happy for Sonam. Jahnvi arrived for the main nuptials in pink, with her sister and father in tow who look equally awesome.
The wedding is happening today and the groom looks set from newly-arrived pictures:
And just look at the gorgeous bride – simply stunning!
