Ankita Lokhande is all set to tie the knot with long-time beau, Vicky Jain. The couple kickstarted their pre-wedding festivities with fun-filled engagement and mehendi ceremonies, looking ethereal as ever. And we just couldn’t take our eyes off the lovely couple as they adorned some stunning ensembles.

For the mehendi ceremony, the bride-to-be opted for an ivory lehenga set by Siddhartha Bansal that took “45 days from sketches to the actual ensemble”, the designer said.
