Another Bollywood queen has gotten hitched, but this time to a Hollywood prince! Priyanka Chopra, aged 36 and Nick Jonas aged 26, finally tied the knot in a lavish five days celebration at the Jodhur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace, India.

Boasting a burst of East meets West culture, the much-anticipated interracial union was celebrated in both Christian and Hindu ceremonies. We absolutely love how both families were open to embrace different religion and culture.

Western Wedding 

Oh my gosh, look at Priyanka’s stunning wedding dress. The white ensemble took a total of 1,826 hours to complete, as it was hand-beaded and hand embroidered. Woah, that’s a lot of hours spent! What’s more, her dress also featured floral and scroll motifs, lace-effect tulle appliques, scalloped sleeves and a high-neck collar. And get this, underneath her long-sleeve gown, was a strapless column dress made up of.. 2,380,000 mother of pearl sequins, in which she completed the look with a long tulle veil that was 75 feet in length along with a pair of custom made Jimmy Choo heels.

In an interview, Priyanka Chopra explained, “For the Western wedding, we had been talking to a bunch of incredible designers, but ultimately when Ralph Lauren approached us, I learned that Ralph has only designed three wedding dresses in 50 years — one for his daughter, his daughter in law, and his niece,” adding, “I was blown away.”

The Ralph Lauren team also hand-stitched eight words and phrases on to her wedding dress including Jonas’ full name (Nicholas Jerry Jonas), the couple’s wedding date and the name of her parents, Madhu and Ashok. She also wanted to add  a familial sentiment to her design, so she had a piece of her mother-in-law’s wedding dress stitched into her gown. We’re literally getting goosebumps from her wedding video. The dress is a total masterpiece.

Indian Wedding

She looked equally stunning in a custom red lehenga by Sabyasachi for the traditional Indian wedding. It is also a hand-embroidered dress with hand-cut organza flowers, featuring french knots in silk floss, delicate Siam-red crystals and layered with thread-work embroidery. According to Sabyasachi’s official Instagram page, it took 110 embroiderers from Calcutta, India and 3720 hours, just to create the beautiful masterpiece (more time needed than the Ralph Lauren dress)!

Meanwhile, her Mughal jewellery was crafted with uncut diamonds, emeralds and Japanese cultured pearls in 22 karat gold. There’s also tiny, delicate stars in uncut diamonds sewn into her dress, which added a sense of whimsy to the traditional piece.

Wedding Reception 

As for the wedding reception, Priyanka opted for a custom-made shimmery Champagne-hued Falguni Shane Peacock lahenga, which took 12,000 hours of 80 craftsmen and a million crystals to sparkly the dress.

If you’ve lost track of the whole ceremony and of her many, many stunning looks. we’re here to break it down to you!

Mehendi Ceremony 

Priyanka and Nick’s pre-wedding ceremony kicked of with the Mehendi on Saturday. The couple posted on their social media, “One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each others faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was afternoon that kicked of the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.”

But what caught our attention of the Mehendi event was her stunning sunrise inspired dress with rainbows layering over her entire outfit, a handmade attire by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla. She completed the look with a traditional bindi and heirloom necklaces, earrings and chunky bracelets.

It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love.  Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends…#grateful @nickjonas 📹/📷: @calebjordanlee @josevilla @josephradhik
