After all those speculations that have been going around ever since we saw Sonam Kapoor and her beau Anand Ahuja together, it’s finally confirmed. The loved-up duo will tie the knot, put a ring on it, make it official (you get the picture) on the 8th May at the Kapoor family with a huge reception party at the Leela. At first everyone assumed they’d fly off to some place exotic for the nuptials (à la Anushka Sharma), but as it turns out, the wedding will take place in Sonam’s hometown – Mumbai. Now that all those technical details are out of the way, let’s get to what’s really important, shall we? – What will Sonam Kapoor wear?
We narrowed it down to five of her absolute favourite designers – she loves them, frequently endorses them and there’s a good chance she’ll wear one of these to walk down the aisle in...and a little insider tells us Anamika Khana and Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla are definitely to be seen!
The Kapoor sisters and Anamika Khanna go way back. Both Rhea and Sonam have worn her designs more than a few times in the past and they’ve made it a point to let us know she’s on top of their list.
Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla
They’re like family to the Kapoors and in all likelihood; Sonam will wear one of their traditional (but custom-made of course) outfits for one of her functions.
Ralph & Russo
Kapoor walked down their runway looking like a modern-day bride and has worn them frequently at Cannes. So our bets are on Ralph & Russo creating one of their exquisite pieces especially for her wedding.
Rimzim’s designs are futuristic, experimental and very much Sonam’s vibe. She’s only worn her clothes a handful of times but every time she has it’s been an absolute hit!
Elie Saab is on most girls’ wedding wish list and she’s most probably on Sonam Kapoor’s too. She looks like an absolute dream while wearing her gowns and just look at how fitting they’d be at a wedding.
While these are definitely her favourites, chances are she’ll pull something out of nowhere and surprise everyone in the coming weeks. We’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled! And as for her to-be-husband, we’re pretty sure he’ll be wearing his sneakers under whatever he picks for the big day.
