Bachpan Se Hi Na, Mujhe Shaadi Karne Ka Bara Craze Hain, By God- how truly some girls vouch for the dialogue said by Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met! When it comes to marriage, different girls have different types of reaction. While some girls are satisfied with whatever their parents and peers choose, others are extremely particular about how they want their wedding to be, right from the backdrop of the photo booth, to their chooda design and some are deeply inspired by Bollywood celebrities and want to replicate the same at their wedding. This one’s about a bride who chose to sport the maximum and what looks like it, was deeply inspired by Sonam K Ahuja and Deepika Padukone's wedding.

We bet it is not just real-life bride, Anusha Bhatt, who was mesmerised by the newly-married Bollywood actresses, Sonam K Ahuja and Deepika Padukone. These actresses surely bowled us over how beautiful they had looked on their pre-wedding and wedding day. Quite like many of us, who yearn to become the brides that Deepika and Sonam were, Anusha Bhatt’s recreation of their wedding outfits made our mouths gape in amazement! Wonder how? Move on to the next paragraph!
Remember the beautiful cream and golden zari work Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla gown that Sonam K Ahuja had worn at her wedding? Yes, Anusha revamped the outfit for her own and also took a cue from the mogra flowers strings laced in her braid. For her wedding, she chose to try out Deepika Padukone’s look and opted for an almost similar lehenga like the superstar. For her wedding reception, Anusha, along with her hubby, donned and styled themselves quite similar to how Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone had looked at their star-studded Mumbai reception. Here are all the pictures:
Talking about the same with WedMeGood, Anusha revealed, "Like every other bride, we wanted (actually I wanted) to have the perfect wedding, the one that leaves everyone awestruck. You know, the kinds that become the talking point of the town. The last year has been all about celeb weddings, and like every soon-to-be bride, I keenly observed each one of our celebrity bride's looks, ready with my notepad, jotting down every detail that I loved and could imagine incorporating in my own wedding."
Anusha further went on to add, “After seeing the paparazzi go crazy fOR #DeepVeer, #Nickyanka and Sonam and Anand's wedding. I was at a loss of words. Their outfits were legit out of the world; I bet you will not be able to name even one person who didn't want to wear them! So, I picked up elements that I liked best from each of my favourite celebrities' looks and tried to recreate them at my own wedding."

Coming back to Sonam K Ahuja’s beautiful sangeet outfit, the same was put together by none other than, her favourite designer duo, Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. And you know what? It took Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla’s team, 18 months to complete this masterpiece! Don’t believe us? Hear it from the ace designers themselves, who had shared, “This ensemble is a labour of love and joy. Sonam is our absolute favourite and for her wedding, it had to be a fantasy piece that set new creative standards for us in order to do full justice to her and this sacred occasion. She ordered it two years ago and it’s taken multiple teams of artisans eighteen months to create.”
Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla’s official Instagram handle had also posted a video with a beautiful caption which could be read as, "LOVE'S MASTERPIECE! ABU JANI SANDEEP KHOSLA FOR SONAM KAPOOR.

Silver and gold zari, pearls, motifs, sequins, Swarovski crystals were used to create the beauty.
