From an Intimate Wedding to an Eco-Friendly Wedding Invite, How Sonam Kapoor is Breaking Stereotypes of a Bollywood Wedding

By Karan M.


Ever since the official announcement of Sonam Kapoor's wedding with Fashion Industrialist Anand Ahuja, there have been a ton of rumors, speculations, and stories about their wedding celebrations. However, to the traditional media's disappointment, it seems that the couple has decided to have a modest & intimate celebration instead of a pompous stereotypical Punjabi Bollywood wedding festival.

In a joint statement, the Kapoor & Ahuja family has said; ''The Kapoor & Ahuja families, take great joy and pride, in announcing the marriage of Sonam & Anand. The wedding will take place on the 8th of May in Mumbai. Since it is an intimate affair, we request you to respect the family’s need for privacy. Thank you for all your blessings and love, as we celebrate this special moment in our lives.''

This clearly shows how the couple has decided to go for a close-knit affair with hardly any PR stunts and Photo-ops and hence, the media (including us) should surely oblige their request for privacy.

According to Internet sources, the couple will tie a knot in Mumbai itself with a Sikh-style wedding beginning with Anand Karaj on 8th May 2018 in a Bandra Bungalow, followed by a Reception Party in one of the top 5-star hotels in the city, which is again speculated to be an intimate affair, as mentioned in the joint statement by the family. The Mehndi ceremony is supposed to take place on 7th May 2018 ( We surely look forward to Sonam's Mehndi day look and we hope the actress releases at least some images of the same).

Moreover, in another example-setting gesture, it is being speculated that the couple decided to chuck conventionally printed invitation cards and rather went the eco-friendly route by sending personalized e-invites to their guests. The following images have been doing rounds of the internet;



 As you can see, the dress code for the functions is fixed to be Traditional Indian, adding another touch of modesty to the wedding celebration of Sonam Kapoor & Anand Ahuja. 

We wish the couple-to-be, a very Happy Married Life ahead and we are glad that they decided to Wed Wisely!
