Wedding Wardrobes
26-year-old Delhi based designer Manav Gangwani is designing her bridal wear. A close friend to Raveena, though Manav hasn't designed for any of her films, he has crafted many of her off-screen formals.

Manav has also designed 3 exclusive outfits for the groom Anil Thadani. The bride's wardrobe, however, is ten times heavily stuffed than that of the groom, which comprises of around 30 rich and ornamented costumes designed by Manav.

Moreover Manav has also taken charge of the wedding wardrobes for the entire Tandon family. His creations include Churidar kurta and sherwanis for Raveena's brother Rajeev Tandon, 7 outfits for sister in law Rakhee Tandon, 7 suits for mother Veena Tandon and 5 outfits each for Raveena's adopted daughters – Pooja & Chhaya.

Farah Khan Ali, wife of DJ Aqueel, has designed Raveena's jewelry.

Bride's Brocade: No Shehar Ki Ladki!
The actress, who sizzled in mast mast item numbers of Bollywood with her hot-shot outfits, would prefer to go ethnic as far as her wedding outfit is concerned.

Sangeet function: an olive green suit with gold and kundan embroidery

Mehendi function: classic brocade

Wedding Day: For the D-day, Raveena would be wearing a maroon lehanga, which is actually her mother's wedding lehanga. It will be entirely reworked upon with real gold and embellished with some precious stones to match the uncut diamonds she will wear! The zardozi wire will be spun from real gold.

3 five-star hotels have been booked for these special guests.

Dilwali (Bride):
Popular Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon (32)

Taqdeerwala... Dulhe Raja (Bridegroom):
Anil Thadani (34). Once divorced, Thadani is a film distributor from Mumbai who was in the news a few years ago for being threatened by the underworld. He was the distributor for Raveena Tandon's Stumped, which miserably sank at the box-office. His last hit film, as a distributor remains Aziz Mirza's Chalte Chalte

Their first meeting: Love not at first sight!
Incidentally the couple met for the first time on Valentine's Day three years ago at Olive. But contrary to all her onscreen lovey-dovey roles, it was not love at first sight for Raveena. However her first impression for Anil was quite positive.
Waah…! Tera Kya Kehna

Love blooms: Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye
After their first meeting, the duo did not see each other for the next two years. Then Raveena made her first film as a producer - Stumped and Anil met her for distributing the film. And though Stumped sank instantly at the box-office, love bloomed slowly and subsequently between the couple.

Engagement: Only Gharwali, No Baharwali
After weeks of speculation, the couple finally put an official lock on the mouth of gossipmongers by getting engaged in November 2003, just a day before Raveena's 32nd birthday. The ring-ceremony was a private affair at the Tandon's Juhu residence with only close relatives present.
