Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s wedding is quickly becoming a late contender for the Celebrity Wedding of 2018.
The week-long festivities began in Mumbai on Monday, November 26 with a dinner party. On Wednesday, Chopra’s mother Dr Madhu Chopra invited the wedding party to her Mumbai home for a traditional puja ceremony in celebration of their impending nuptials.
For the occasion, all the guests, including Nick’s brother Joe Jonas and his fiancé Sophie Turner, wore Indian dress. The bride opted for a heavily embellished sky suit, while the groom chose a pink kurta and cream trousers for the occasion. Both wore sunglasses to ward off the glare of snap happy paparazzi.
The wedding itself will take place on Sunday, December 2 in accordance with Hindu customs at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhavan Palace. In the run-up, there is also the mehendi ceremony on Thursday for the couple and their families to look forward to.
Of course, the celebrations were always going to be fabulous. Jonas set the tone when he shut down Tiffany’s London flagship to choose a four-carat cushion-cut engagement ring for his bride-to-be in total privacy. The storied jeweller then hosted a bridal shower for Chopra and 100 of her friends in its Blue Box Café in New York, where the likes of Lupita Nyong’o and Kelly Ripa left with goodie bags comprising monogrammed passport cases and champagne. The bride and her hens then spent the weekend in Amsterdam earlier this month, where they supped Malibu on canalboats and formulated new hashtags – #TheJSisters, anyone? – amidst the merriment. From London to NYC, Amsterdam and now India, the couple certainly know how to throw a party.
