The groom and bride arrived in the morning at the villa of their close friend and Dubai-based entrepreneur Prakash Bhojwani, which has been chosen as the venue of the mehendi, sangeet, wedding and reception.
"The mehendi and sangeeth functions were held yesterday (Aug 29th 2010). The wedding will take place at 3 pm on Monday and the reception will be held on Tuesday evening.
The venue of all these functions is Bhojwani's home, which is located very close to the Jumeirah waterfront in Al Safa," said an invitee.
The reception will see around 60 attendees from India, which includes actors Anupam Kher and Boman Irani. Apart from these, invitations have been extended to heads of the Indian diplomatic mission in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, prominent NRIs and some members of the royal family.
"Only close friends will be attending this function. It's a very private affair. The functions were organised mainly by Sunanda's friends as she was keen to have a traditional Kashmiri ceremony. The couple will leave for the Delhi reception soon after the Dubai reception is complete," added the source.
Pushkar wore a lavender chiffon sari at her mehendi yesterday and will be wearing a brocade and georgette one for the wedding ceremony. "She's still undecided about what she's going to wear for the reception," said Dubai designer Anjali Chandiramani, who has been working on Pushkar's trousseau for eight months.
The ensemble contains a variety of saris, ranging from simple cotton ones to chiffons and silks.
"The sari she will wear for the lagan is shaded with a border of pure brocade and gota. A traditional blouse adorned with brocade and buti work has been designed to go with it. We have been in touch over the phone but she had faith in me and only saw the ensemble in its entirety last morning. She was absolutely thrilled," said Chandiramani.
