Ever since news broke in May that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas began dating, their whirlwind romance has dominated headlines. After announcing their engagement on August 8, the couple has been open about their journey to the altar – from Chopra’s stunning Tiffany & Co. engagement ring to her European bachelorette celebration earlier this month, fans have been eagerly awaiting details about their big day.
Chopra previously told Vogue that guests “will need vacations after this wedding” and as the three-day celebration came to a close, it seems she delivered on her promise of an epic wedding.
From horseback riding to castles, here’s what we know about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s wedding.
Wedding festivities began with a welcome dinner in Mumbai on November 26.
According to the Hindustan Times, the couple began the celebrations with a welcome dinner for family and friends on Monday. Then, on Wednesday, they had a family puja– a traditional Hindu prayer ritual – at the Mumbai home of Dr. Madhu Chopra, Priyanka’s mother.
Photographers snapped pictures of Chopra and Jonas, as well as Nick’s brother Joe Jonas and his fiancée, “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner, entering Dr. Chopra’s home in traditional Indian attire.
The couple had three traditional Hindu ceremonies, per accordance with Hindu customs.
The Christian ceremony took place on Saturday, with the Hindu ceremony on the following day.
The Hindu celebrations included the Sangeet, Mehendi ceremony, and Haldi ceremony.
The Sangeet, which took place on Friday, was a celebration featuring music and dancing and the joining of two families together, according to DNA India. Chopra and Jonas reportedly held the Sangeet in conjunction with the Mehendi, a traditional ceremony that involves applying henna to the bride in preparation for the wedding ceremony itself.
On Instagram, Chopra wrote of the dancing at the Sangeet, “And what a performance it was,” Chopra, who wore Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla for the “fierce competition.”
Chopra’s cousin, Parineeti, echoed these sentiments on her own Instagram saying that the family had rehearsed their Bollywood-style piece for days. But, the Jonas family “stumped” them with their lip-syncing of Hindi songs.
According to the Hindu Times, the Haldi ceremony took place Friday. During this event, a paste made of turmeric, rose water (or water), and sandalwood powder is applied to the bride and groom’s bodies to help rid the couple of evil forces ahead of their union, as well as encourage prosperity as they begin their lives together. It was followed by a cocktail party.
The couple married in a traditional Christian ceremony on Saturday.
Jonas’ father officiated the first ceremony, and his brothers served as groomsmen. Chopra’s closest friends made up the bridal party.
According to E! Online, the groomsmen included Nick’s brothers – Frankie Jonas, Joe Jonas, and Kevin Jonas – as well as his former Kingdom co-star, Jonathan Tucker, and Priyanka’s brother, Siddharth Chopra.
Ralph Lauren designed Chopra’s gown for the Christian ceremony.
In October, the “Baywatch” star hinted at her own wedding day style, telling Entertainment Tonight that she has to be “comfortable and cute,” giving nothing more by way of details about her gowns.
The designer is not known for designing wedding gowns and has only ever designed them for his daughter, daughter-in-law, and niece.
Lauren also designed the outfits for Jonas and the entire bridal party.
The traditional Indian ceremony took place at a royal palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India on Sunday.
The location of the wedding was the Umaid Bhawan Palace, a lavish royal palace that sits atop 26 acres of land and has a five-star hotel with 347 rooms and a museum.
According to Vogue, the end of the ceremony was signified with a spectacular fireworks display.
Jonas arrived on a horse for the traditional Indian ceremony.
According to E! Online, Chopra wore a red sari for the occasion, while Jonas was also dressed in a traditional outfit and turban.
Nick rode to his wedding ceremony mounted on a decorated horse.
They reportedly gave monogrammed welcome gifts to their guests.
As per Cosmopolitan’s reports, the pair appears to have had a monogram created out of their initials. It also seems like guests received an “Oh S— Kit,” two books: “Western Weddings for Dummies” and “Indian Weddings for Dummies,” an information guide, and a “Taste of India” kit.
The guest list was star-studded, but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry didn’t attend.
Aside from Nick’s brothers, Kevin, Joe, and Frankie Jonas, Sophie Turner, and Kevin’s wife, Danielle, the couple’s celebrity friends reportedly attending include Armie Hammer and his wife, who confirmed she was “India-bound” in a recent post to her Instagram Stories.
Sophie Turner even danced on stage at the couple’s pre-wedding bash.
The Duke and Duchess did not attend.
