Priyanka Chopra's Wedding Dress Is One of the Most Elaborate We've Ever Seen
Would we have believed you if you told us even two years ago that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas would be tying the knot? Probably not, to be honest. Do we believe it now? Oh yes we do.
Chopra and Jonas became husband and wife on Saturday after a whirlwind romance, and they looked the part at their lavish wedding day ceremonies — yes, multiple. The two were married in Jodhpur, India, with both a traditional Western ceremony and a Hindu one, and Priyanka wore what is quite possibly the prettiest outfit we've ever seen her in (and that's saying something).
The blushing bride wore custom Ralph Lauren for her Western ceremony, and it's definitely not your traditional white gown. The elaborate dress was embellished by two million (!) mother of pearl sequins and given a vintage flair with its scalloped lace collar. Perhaps even more show-stopping than the gown itself, though, is the 75-foot ethereal veil that trailed behind, seen in People's exclusive photos.
Jonas followed suit (literally) in a tuxedo from the brand. At request of the groom, a piece of lace from his bride's gown was stitched within the lapel, bearing the Urdu phrase "My Jaan," which translates to "My Life."
For the Hindu ceremony, Chopra stunned in a dazzling bejeweled and sequined red lehenga from Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherji. Jonas wore traditional Indian garb as well, opting for a gold sherwani and turban.
As you can see from other wedding photos, the joy was contagious. "One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other’s faiths and cultures," Jonas and Chopra both captioned their pre-wedding posts on Instagram. "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 an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed."
What a way to say "I do."
