It was a day full of love, family, our beautiful best friends, a LOT of French fries, a surprise performance by the ladkewalas, Ayan playing DJ, a BIG surprise organised by Mr. Kapoor (my favourite artist performed my favourite songs), all followed by some happy tears and quiet, blissful moments with the love of my life.

Alia Bhatt's Mehendi Look Decoded

The Outfit

For her mehendi ceremony, Alia Bhatt opted for a lehenga set sans a dupatta from the house of Manish Malhotra. Her bright red lehenga featured beautiful patchwork in multiple colours. It was teamed with a halter neck choli.

The Jewellery

Her mehendi look was rounded off with a diamond polki statement choker and matching maangtika by Dedhia Jewellers.

Makeup And Hair

For this pre-wedding festivity, Alia Bhatt kept her makeup soft, with loads of mascara, blush and a nude lip colour, her signature makeup look. Her hair were done in a twisted braid at the back and the rest of her tresses were left loose.

Mehendi Design

Alia Bhatt kept her mehendi design minimal. It was reportedly done by Chembur based mehendi artist, Jyoti Chheda. The design was kept very simple, just on her palms and the back of her hand. The mehendi was beautifully done in circles. The mehendi had an R (Ranbir Kapoor's initial) and 8 (Ranbir Kapoor's lucky number).

Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt wore colour coordinated outfits for their mehendi too. Ranbir Kapoor wore a kurta pyjama and Nehru jacket set from Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
