It won’t be wrong if we say, weddings in India are no less than a festival! With all the long-lost relatives and whose who attending the wedding, it becomes one of the most awaited moments for any family. In any family, the moment the child enters his or her twenties, the parents start to see every bachelor as a prospective partner for their child. Well, it is fun sometimes and a dreaded thought at other times. But, despite everything, this is one day that sure everyone has imagined in their life. And celebrity weddings add more to our dreams. From their designer outfits to their makeup looks, to their jewellery and destination, we just take mental notes of all the do's and don’ts. Talking about taking inspirations, Gold medalist wrestler-turned-politician, Babita Phogat had given major inspiration to everyone with her wedding with Vivek Suhag.

It was on December 1, 2019, when Babita and Vivek had tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with only 21 baraatis, ditching the concept of a big fat Indian wedding. If that was not the inspiration enough, then Babita and Vivek had taken an extra phera, apart from the saat pheras, dedicating it to the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ initiative. Like every other bride, Babita too wanted to be dressed her best on her big day, and thus ace designer, Sabyasachi Mukherjee had taken his magic wand to turn the gorgeous wrestler into a beautiful princess, as she had worn an exactly similar red bridal lehenga that Priyanka Chopra had worn on her wedding.
Now, a viral video is doing the rounds on social media from Babita Phogat’s bridal makeup shoot, where designer, Sabyasachi Mukherjee can be seen helping her with the same red sequenced lehenga that ‘desi girl’ Priyanka Chopra had worn for her wedding. NDTV Goodtimes has shared a video on their Instagram handle from their show, Band Baaja Bride, as Babita Phogat was the first bride to be dressed on TV by the designer, Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Babita looks ethereal in the video as Sabyasachi decides on the final bridal look for her. The conversation between Sabyasachi and Babita shows the latter’s love for bindi and lipsticks. This bridal transformation video is unmissable, take a look.
According to DBPost, Babita had talked about how her father never allowed them to doll up and her wedding was a day to fulfil that desire. She had shared, “Father did not allow us sisters to doll up, but today the wish has been fulfilled. Today I am very happy after becoming a bride. Very happy after wearing a bridal dress. When we used to go to the wedding ceremony of other girls, we sisters used to wear bangles and rings many times seeing other girls. But Dad did not allow. He often said that your goal should be just wrestling. When the goal is achieved, then do the makeup. I am very happy about wearing a bridal dress."

Earlier in an interview with The Times of India, Babita had revealed how she had met Vivek. She had shared, “It was an event for wrestlers at a hotel in Delhi where we first met. Bas wahan dosti ho gayi. We stayed in touch and in time, we realised that we liked each other. I like how he is very straightforward but still respects others." Babita had also shared that she will move to Delhi after her wedding. (Don't Miss: Throwback Picture Of Varun Dhawan Holding His Love, Natasha Dalal Is All About School Time Love)
