Not only did Chopra’s dress include a piece of the wedding dress that Jonas’ mother, Denise, wore when she married his father, but it also included embroidered messages. Her parents’ names, her and Jonas’ wedding date, and Jonas’ full name, Nicholas Jerry Jonas, all made the cut.

The bride also included a few words and terms that are important to her, including “Hope,” “Compassion,” “Family,” “Love,” and the Hindu mantra “Om Nivah Shivay,” which means “admiration to Lord Shiva.”

Jonas’ suit included a piece of Chopra’s wedding dress and the words “My Jaan,” which mean “My Life.”

According to the magazine, Chopra’s Ralph Lauren dress was embroidered with 2,380,000 mother of pearl sequins, and she accessorized with a very impressive 75-foot veil, which required five attendants to carry it as she walked down the aisle.

Jonas and Chopra officially confirmed their engagement in August, just three months after taking their relationship public. On Tuesday, they shared the first photos from their wedding ceremonies.
