Reigning Bollywood queen, ultimate fashionista, and girl crush, Sonam Kapoor is all set to the tie the knot with her beau, Delhi-based entrepreneur, Anand Ahuja, this week after a joint statement released by the Kapoor and Ahuja families.

We here at want to keep you up-to-date with all the happenings of what’s sure to be a star-studded, glamorous affair over the next few days as we follow #SonamKiShaadi. To kick off the big fat Indian wedding, on Sunday the Kapoor family hosted a private mehndi ceremony for close friends and family at their Juhu, Mumbai residence. Take a look at some of our favorite moments of the night.

The happy couple posed for a photo, both looking impeccably stylish.

The bride-to-be looked jubilant as she had her mehndi applied.

And mehndi is not just for girls, obviously. #Genderequality

We love this adorable, candid couple moment.

Our girl knows how to get down!

Sorry, I got so lost in the cuteness of Sonam and Anand that I forgot there were other people at this event! Here’s Sonam’s little sis, Rhea Kapoor. Rhea has produced two of her big sister’s most entertaining movies: “Aisha” and “Khoobsurat,” and also produced the highly anticipated “Veere Di Wedding.” Basically, she’s the epitome of #girlboss.

A lot of star power packed into this selfie of director-producer Karan Johar, actress Rani Mukerji, and father of the bride, actor Anil Kapoor!

Brothers of the bride, and actors, Harshvardhan Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor pose for the camera in their traditional wear. 

Stay tuned as we continue to give you the latest from #SonamKiShaadi, both here and on Instagram! We hope this selfie of Sonam and Anand will keep you at bay until then!

Trust us, we’re waiting just as impatiently for more photos from the baraat and ceremony as all of you!
