From the moment Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas announced their engagement, everyone (fans and haters alike) have been keeping close eyes on them. How could they not? The bride, a sensational Bollywood actress with list of credible films to her name, millions of fans, and a killer fashion sense has always been in the limelight. Whether it’s for her films, her Hollywood’s career, or her friendship with the Duke of Sussex, Meghan Markle, Priyanka Chopra is a force to be reckoned with.
Meanwhile, the groom, Nick Jonas, has been in the limelight from an early age performing songs with his band, the Jonas Brothers, and has starred in countless films and TV series. Match them together for multi-day wedding ceremonies, and the world literally went crazy.
This past week saw the lovebirds’ extravagant wedding ceremonies both in Indian and Christian traditions and held in India. The couple’s affection and plethora of VIP guests kept people talking, but above else, it was their wedding attire that had chins wagging—especially the bride’s. With this in mind, we have compiled five of Priyanka Chopra’s fabulous wedding dresses that she wore from her engagement day to her fairy-tale dream wedding at Umaid Bhawan Palace.
The pre-wedding Mehndi ceremony, which was held in Jodhpur, is a festive celebration before a wedding at which the bride and her family will get henna tattoos (or mehndi) applied to their hands and feet. On this occasion, the gorgeous Priyanka shone in multi-hued organdy ensemble matched with heirloom jewellery designed by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla.
Starting their ceremonies with pre-wedding rituals and prayers, the couple were seen in Manish Malhotra creations with Priyanka stunning in power-blue salwar kameez.
Sangeet is known as a pre-wedding ritual in which both families engage in song and dance. For the special occasion, Priyanka Chopra opted for a sparkling sari by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla with fully hand-embroidered sequins in gold and silver, all paired with a statement diamond choker necklace and twinkling bangles.
Here comes the bride… with a 22-metre-long veil! For her Christian wedding ceremony, the former Miss World 2000 surprised the world with a custom-made Ralph Lauren wedding gown, which featured scalloped sleeves and a high-neck collar. But what broke the Internet was the 22-metre-long tulle veil, which required five men to help her down the aisle at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. Talk about making an entrance.
There’s nothing that screams breathtaking and luxurious as much as Indian wedding outfits. For her Indian wedding ceremony, the 36-year-old actress wore a custom-red lehenga made of hand-cut organza flowers, French knots in silk floss, and Siam-red crystals. The crimson outfit took more than 3,000 hours to make. The blushing bride also wore wedding jewellery crafted with uncut diamonds, emeralds, and Japanese cultured pearls in 22k gold, paying homage to traditional Mughal jewellery. The actress later stated that she always knew she wanted a red traditional silhouette for her wedding.
New Delhi reception
When someone tells you that Indian wedding ceremonies go on for days, trust them. Just yesterday, the happy couple celebrated another happy day with a reception held at the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi. For the occasion, Priyanka Chopra stepped out in a shimmery white lehenga by Falguni Shane Peacock India, boasting beading and embroidery. The actress also wore diamond earrings, a dreamy necklace, and flowers in her hair.
