Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas got engaged in late July in Greece, and capped off their engagement on the bride-to-be’s 36th birthday in London–in a romantic gesture right out a scene of a movie. Straight out of the opening scene of Sweet Home Alabama, Jonas took his bride-to-be to Tiffany & Co., where Chopra selected the ring of her dreams. The couple then set out to plan a multi-day celebration in Jodhpur, India–packed with celebrity guests, multiple outfit changes, a palace venue, and much, much more. This was Hollywood’s version of the royal wedding. Here, everything you need to know about Priyanka and Nick’s nuptials.
The Wedding Date
While the couple has remained relatively mum on the details of their wedding, multiple outlets, including Entertainment Tonight, had speculated that Priyanka and Nick would wed before 2019.
A source with knowledge of the plans informed BAZAAR.com prior to the weddingthat the couple was planning events for the weekend of November 30th–December 2nd, beginning with a welcome party, followed by a Mehendi, a Sangeet, a Hindu wedding ceremony, and a Western wedding ceremony. According to People, who published exclusive details and photos of the couple’s celebrations, the wedding concluded in a Bidaai, a party and ceremony where friends and family of the couple bless their nuptials and future life together.
The couple’s multi-day celebration took place from November 29th-December 3rd, with the ceremonies taking place on December 1st and 2nd.
Having had a front-row seat at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal wedding in Windsor Castle, Priyanka Chopra knew a thing or two about regal wedding venues. The actress and Duchess now have one more thing in common: they both got married at castles. The Quantico actress chose the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur for her nuptials to Jonas.
Stretching across 26 acres of land (including 15 acres of private gardens), the couple had multiple options for the site of their many ceremonies, as well as room for their guests given the hotel’s impressive 347 room count.
The bride’s much anticipated dresses (yes, dresses) included a mix of Indian and Western designers. While white is deemed funereal in India, Priyanka was spotted donning the bridal hue to her shower, where she stunned in a feather-embroidered, midi dress by Marchesa, and in Amsterdam for her bachelorette weekend, where she wore a Georges Chakra mini dress with a feathered duster paired with a Hugo Boss faux fur coat.
For her Western ceremony, Priyanka wore a custom gown by Ralph Lauren, a nod back to her first red carpet appearance with Jonas at the 2017 Met Gala, where they were both dressed by the designer. The groom also wore a custom look by Ralph Lauren, perhaps as an ode to the couple’s Met Gala date together.
The semi-sheer, long-sleeve gown was a “hand-beaded and hand-embroidered dress featuring floral and scroll motifs, lace-effect tulle appliqués, scalloped sleeves and a high-neck collar,” People reports. It took 1,826 hours to create. The column dress beneath the embroidered outer layer consisted of 2,380,000 mother of pearl sequins.
