Geeta and her gang of girls only revealed this selfie from the bachelorette party. They sure look like they had a lot of fun.
After a rendezvous with all the girls at a secret bachelorette party, the pre-wedding functions kick-started with the mehendi ceremony that happened on October 27, 2015. The groom's side celebrated it at their native house in Navi Baradari, and the bride's side chose to celebrate the function at a hotel on the outskirts of Jalandhar.
Geeta sported a pastel pink and lemon yellow lehenga with patchwork by Archana Kochhar, and looked absolutely gorgeous in that. Although, the mehendi ceremony was organised separately by both the sides, Harbhajan, with a few of his friends, dropped by at Geeta's hotel to surprise her. And, they even had a fun-filled shayari round afterwards.
A guest stated:
The bride's side was happy to have the munde wale (boy's side), adding to the celebrations. The boys' gang spent some time at the mehendi venue on the outskirts of Jalandhar. They danced for a while and there was a special shayari session too.
Next, both the sides met at Phagwara where the sangeet took place on October 28, 2015. Geeta dazzled in a dark green lehenga, whereas Harbhajan donned a pastel pink kurta, white churidar and a hot pink waistcoat. Look how adorable they look here:

After the sangeet, the jago ceremony took place wednesday night. It is an important part of Punjabi marriage rituals. Harbhajan carried a decorated ghara (pot) and went around the locality with his mother, sisters and other relatives and did giddha.
Their locality was cordoned off for security purposes, and the bouncers wore T-shirts with ‘Harbhajan and Geeta’ written on them. Harbhajan wore a green Pathani suit. A special dinner was organised afterwards.
The wedding was a traditional Punjabi affair. The dulha got ready with his baraat, and left for the venue in a Rolls Royce in style. The beautiful bride blushed her way to the venue in another Archana Kochhar creation. It was a traditional red lehenga with heavy golden work on it. Geeta opted for heavy kundan jewellery from Vadodara-based Narayan Jewellers to match her outfit. It included a nath, haath phool and a maang tikka. To complement his bride, Bhajji chose an off-white and red sherwani, and looked dapper in that.
