ICYMI: Everything Priyanka Chopra wore during her three-day wedding celebrations
From Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding to Chiara Ferragni and Fedez's extravagant ceremony in Sicily, this year had its fair share of big weddings, but the last leg of celebrity wedding could definitely give them a run for their money. Arguably the Hollywood wedding of the year, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have been making waves since they were first spotted together, and now, six months (and a proposal at Tiffany & Co.) later, the couple tied the knot in India, and the celebrations were nothing short of a fairytale. To catch you up on all the not-to-be-missed fashion moments from the bride, here's everything you need to know about her bridal looks for the three-day festivities that were a mix of traditional and modern attires:
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra kicked off the wedding weekend with a traditional Mehendi ceremony-a pre-wedding celebration where the bride has henna tattoos drawn on her hands and feet. The couple was dressed in designs by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, and the bride opted for a vibrant and colourful organdy ensemble and heirloom jewellery from the brand.
The designer also made Chopra's sari for the Sangeet—a musical party where the families sing and dance. The bride danced and dazzled the night away in a gold and silver sequinned sari and a diamond necklace. PS: Spot soon-to-be sister-in-law Sophie Turner performing in the video below.
When it came time to create her dream bridal gown for the Christian ceremony (which was officiated by Nick Jonas' father), both bride and groom turned to Ralph Lauren, who was there from the beginning of their relationship, when he dressed both stars for the 2017 Met Gala. Priyanka Chopra's gown, in particular, was the epitome of elegance and grace. Fun fact: The American designer has only made three wedding dresses in 50 years, and they were all for his family. The gown was a hand-beaded and hand-embroidered piece featuring a high-neck collar, lace appliqués, floral motifs, and scalloped sleeves. The embroidery alone took 1,826 hours to complete. Underneath the sheer long sleeves, was a strapless column dress made up of-wait for it—more than two million mother-of-pearl sequins—talk about intricacy! The details don't stop there. As though the gown is not special enough, Ralph Lauren's team hand-stitched eight words and phrases that holds a special place in the bride's heart, and included a piece of Nick Jonas' mother's wedding dress into the piece. Chopra completed her ensemble with a 75-foot tulle veil, and a pair of custom Jimmy Choo pumps.
And lastly, for their Hindu ceremony, the couple turned to Sabyasachi Mukherji—one of India's top fashion designers—for their traditional attire, who also recently dressed It-couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh for their wedding last month. Chopra's red lehenga featured hand-cut organza flowers and Siam red crystals, and the embroidery alone took 110 people and 3,720 hours to finish. To complete the look, the bride honoured the beauty of Mughal jewellery and donned pieces "crafted with uncut diamonds, emeralds and Japanese cultured pearls in 22-carat gold", as the designer revealed on Instagram, which also had delicate stars for that bit of whimsy and extra shimmer. Her necklace was made out of 84.50 carats of pear-shaped diamonds in 18k white gold, and her earrings featured 6.07-carat of the same stones.
