The moment a girl gets to know that she has to leave her parents' house after marriage, her heart breaks. But the only fact that makes her happy is the shaadi showsha. From getting dolled-up for her wedding functions in exquisite outfits to being treated like a princess, the day brings a lot of happiness and a sense of satisfaction to her. And well, every wedding she attends becomes a Pinterest board for her as she makes a big list of all the 'dos and don'ts'.

This is not the first time when a plus-sized bride had stolen our hearts with a stunning red velvet lehenga for her D-day. A marketing strategist from Mumbai, Shobhana Biswas had donned an unconventional maroon coloured, heavily embroidered lehenga for her wedding and had left us awestruck. There was another bride, who had donned a green-coloured lehenga.
