Athiya wore a stunning Ritu Kumar ivory-hued anarkali for her haldi ceremony. Her cotton anarkali includes heavy gota embroidery around the collar and borders, as well as beautiful, handcrafted gold gota work throughout the garment, which gives it a regal appearance. She paired her anarkali suit with a sharara and dupatta with gota embroidery in a similar colour.

Her look was put together with an elegant touch of minimal accessories with small earrings and heavy maangtika. Maintaining the minimal touch of the look, she kept her hair open in a half updo hairstyle and adorned it with jasmine flowers and nude makeover glam.

Accessorizing the look with heavy necklaces, earrings, bangles, and a sleek bun for the hairdo, she turned quite a lot of heads with that look.

Athiya donned a custom Anamika Khanna blush pink chikankari lehenga with floral embroidery and embellishments all over for her wedding ceremony. It was paired with a semi-sheer dupatta and a matching full-sleeved blouse with a sweetheart neckline and an irregular hemline. The bride chose a maang tikka, a beautiful kaleerey, a hefty stone-studded choker, and matching dangling earrings to complete the outfit. Her lehenga took 10000 hours to make and was stunning. The makeup was kept very simple with nude lips and subtle glam which was just perfect and a sleek bun as her hairdo for her special day.
