Sahiba and Jitin were childhood friends while living in Jakarta and Singapore and they attended the same college too. They were good friends in college, but it was only three years ago that they realized that there was more to it than just friendship. In March 2013, they formalized the bond and became man and wife in a beautiful Sikh wedding in Delhi.

Sahiba's outfits for all the functions reflected her personality-vivacious and beautiful.

Funky and colorful for Mehndi

Sahiba says, "I wanted something very colorful and vibrant for the Mehendi. I wore this wonderful short green lehenga with purple sequined blouse and a yellow dupatta by Neelam Soni who captured the essence of Mehendi in this outfit. I fully trusted her and went by her instincts. I tied my hairs in a paranda in typical Punjabi style and the food served was typical Delhi street food. " She wore gold jewelry gifted by her mother and later changed into a multicolored jewelry gifted by her in-laws that went very well with her outfit. Her make-up for all the occasions was done by a Anuj, a make-up artist with MAC.

Stylish for Sangeet

For the Sangeet, Sahiba wore a brilliant indigo blue and red lehenga saree that was formal and yet had a little 'bold' streak to it. She says, "Ritika Mirchandani, the designer, is a close friend of my sister and she wears a lot of her outfits. I loved the lehenga sarees in her collection and really wanted to have one for my Sangeet. She is well-known for her cutwork. Me and Ritika went through a lot of sittings and came up with a red lehenga with an indigo drape and a rich red blouse. The lehenga and the blouse had white cutwork on it which enhanced its glamor. I wore pearl and polki jewelry with it and kept my hair flowing in simple natural curls. "

Unconventional & Fresh Look for Wedding

Sahiba was very clear about what she wanted for her Wedding. She says, "I knew exactly what I wanted. I didn't want to look like conventional brides and I explained to Ritika about what I was looking for- the detailing, color and style; she then added her elements to make it the perfect outfit. I wore a neon pink lehenga with a golden and bubblegum pink sheeranarkali over it. The bustier was golden with a beautiful golden work on it and the sheer anarkali with the neon pink shade of lehenga peeking out made it look even more beautiful. Ritika added black velvet with gold embroidery at the bottom and also in the dupatta that broke the monotony of the dress. It had cut work at the bottom and in the dupatta." She wore a long pearl, gold and kundan necklace and an emerald and kundan choker that complimented her dress very well. She complemented the attire with kundanmathapatti and heavy chandbalis making her a beautiful bride.
