    Last month, a young couple from southern India's Tamil Nadu state booked a whole plane to celebrate their marriage mid-air in the presence of family and friends.

    A video of a Pakistani bride, wearing a 24kg wedding dress, playing a game of rounders with family is doing the rounds on social media. The bride opted for rounders as an alternative to indoor dancing which has been prohibited because of COVID-19 concerns.

    In the thick of pandemic restrictions, Sabah Haneen, the bride, chose a novel way to have a blast on her wedding day nine months ago in the field with her family. 

    She posted a video on Twitter in which she can be seen hitting the ball and scoring a home run wearing a 24kg Pakistani wedding dress.

    With more than 160,000 views and approximately 13,000 likes, the video has gone viral and is attracting a lot of praise for the bride's can-do spirit and readiness to improvise so as to find something innovative, unusual, and fun to do with her guests.
