This dumpster fire of a year seems to have sparked some serious celeb romances. After a whirlwind romance and engagement, singer Nick Jonas and actress/model/queen Priyanka Chopra are getting married. This wedding promise to be an over-the-top event, bringing together A-listers from Hollywood and Bollywood for an elaborate multi-day celebration and we. can’t. wait.
Which designer will Priyanka wear for her wedding ceremony? Will the Jonas Brothers reunite for a performance at the reception? What will Priyanka and Nick’s first dance be? Here is everything we know about the nuptials of #Prick, the couple we never knew we needed.
The bachelor party was…sponsored?
While Nick didn’t post IG photos of the party itself, the groom-to-be did share a few snaps from his bachelor party and—um—its sponsors. Prior to the festivities, Nick shared a image posing with six scooters which were apparently a gift for his groomsmen (but also some serious #sponcon with the post tagged as a paid partnership with Limebike). Two days later, he posted a pic from his bachelor party weekend, wearing a captain’s hat and a wide grin as he pointed his followers towards Elit Vodka, yet another paid partnership. Given that the wedding is being held in a legit palace (see details below) perhaps all these #ad posts are an effort to recoup some costs?
What will Nick and Priyanka wear for their wedding?
Based on the ceremonies and parties that have already taken place, there is no doubt that this couple will look absolutely stunning for their wedding—but the exact designers and looks for their big day are being kept quiet. However, an unnamed source told British tabloid The Sun that for the ceremony, “Nick will wear ivory and Priyanka will be in red, while the bridesmaids will wear Ralph Lauren outfits for the Christian wedding, because the couple wore the brand at their first public appearance together at the Met Gala last year.” Indian brides traditionally wear red, a colour that symbolizes love, fertility and prosperity in Indian culture.
Vogue also reported this week that Priyanka will be wearing a custom Ralph Lauren gown for at least one of the ceremonies. There’s sure to be multiple outfit changes, and we’re ready for ALL of them.
The wedding dates are December 2 and December 3
After publicly sharing their engagement in August with photos of their Roka ceremony—a traditional Indian engagement ceremony—the smitten couple have been in planning overdrive. Indian newspapers India Today and E Times further reported that the couple has kicked off three days of wedding festivities starting Friday, Nov 30., with a traditional Hindu marriage ceremony taking place on Dec. 2. A Christian ceremony will take place on Dec 3, and will be officiated by Nick’s father, according to the Hindustan Times. Which means everything is already happening, right now. (I’m sure our invite just got lost in the mail, right?)
Based on the bachelorette party, the wedding will be over-the-top glam
Before launching into their wedding festivities, Chopra assembled her besties—including her future sister-in-law, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner—for an epic bachelorette trip in Amsterdam. Chopra donned a black and gold bachelorette sash during the day out with her squad (ft. canal cruises and day drinking), but later traded that in for a stunning white Georges Chakra beaded cocktail dress and floor-length feather duster coat for her night out. While there are plenty of glam shots of Chopra, there is a distinct lack of images for what actually went down on this bachelorette trip (as they say, what happens in Amsterdam, stays in Amsterdam). Also notably absent? Chopra’s future sister-in-law Danielle Jonas and bestie-turned-royal Meghan Markle.
Between the bachelorette weekend in Amsterdam and multiple engagement parties, the theme of this wedding seems to be all things *super* luxe. And why not? The 36-year-old and her 26-year-old beau have worked hard for their $$, and we’re pretty certain they’ll spare no expense when it comes to the actual main event.
The wedding venue is a real-life palace in India
If you think #Prick are the type to rent out a local hall with 100 of their best and closest, you are seriously mistaken. The couple is rumoured to be holding pre-wedding functions in both Delhi and Mumbai, and according to India Today, are set to tie the knot at Rajasthan’s luxurious Umaid Bhawan Palace Hotel, which was originally built for Jodhpur’s royal family. Sitting on 26 acres of gardens, this venue may seem a bit grandiose, but TBH Chopra and Jonas will need all that space for their rumoured 1,500 to 2,000 guests (!).
The couple were most recently spotted in Jodhpur at the beginning of October celebrating a friend’s birthday (and potentially finalizing plans at their venue?).
There will be both Hindu and Christian ceremonies
Chopra and Jonas have both commented on the strong role faith plays in their lives and now their relationship. “We have that in common very much. We’ve known each other for a couple of years but we dated for just a little while, but I think that’s the one thing we really connect on is our love for family and knowing faith is so important to us,” Chopra told E! News in October.
Chopra is Hindu, and Jonas—who along with his brothers was know in the early ‘aughts for wearing a purity ring—is Christian, and their faith plays a major role in the planning their big day(s), particularly in the wedding ceremony. Reports say the couple will do a Hindu and a Christian wedding ceremony this winter. In addition to incorporating both of the celeb’s faiths, a source tells Vanity Fair that Chopra is having fun “mixing traditional nods to the two cultures” throughout the festivities.
Priyanka’s bridesmaids are her BFFs
While most bets are on the fact that HRH Meghan Markle won’t be helping her friend walk down the aisle (all those pesky royal rules and such), the actress won’t be going it alone. Chopra will be flanked by friends filmmaker Mubina Rattonsey and manager Anjula Acharia as her bridesmaids. As per Us Weekly, Rattonsey and Acharia have been acing their bridesmaids duties, throwing Chopra a star-studded bridal shower at the Tiffany’s Blue Box Cafe on Oct. 28 in New York City.
There will be lots of performances
You don’t marry a pop star and get away without *at least* one performance. According to India’s Free Press Journal, Jonas plans to serenade his bride with a 45 minute performance at the couple’s Sangeet, an Indian ceremony that takes place before the wedding celebrating the joining of two families with songs and dance performances. We have to be honest, 45 minutes is a *long* time. But may we suggest the seminal JoBro’s hit “Lovebug?”
Lots of celeb guests are arriving for the wedding
The wedding festivities are underway and so are the A-list celeb sightings. Stars like Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner (Chopra’s #JSister and bestie), Jonas’s BFF Chord Overstreet and other Hollywood mainstays like actor Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, Lupita Nyong’o and Hilary Duff (whose baby daddy Matthew Koma is good friends with Chopra), are expected to be in attendance. India Today posted photos of Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle after landing in India for the wedding. And as for Bollywood’s A-list? Actress Parineeti Chopra (Priyanka’s cousin) is the maid of honour, but entertainment site Pinkvilla claims Chopra is mostly nixing invites to her Bollywood pals.
The welcome gifts for those attending are *amazing*
Guests have already started posting their welcome gifts on social media, clearly trying to make everyone who wasn’t invited *very jealous*.
In an IG story posted by jewelry designer Mitali Handa, if you look closely, you can see that included in the gifts are pamphlets titled, “Western Weddings for Dummies” and “Indian Weddings for Dummies”—since the couple will be doing both ceremonies. There is also a package labelled “A Taste of India” and an “Oh Shit Kit.” So. Many. Questions.
Guests will need a vacay after the wedding, according to Priyanka
In an interview with Vogue Magazine, Chopra said the three-day wedding extravaganza is probably going to exhaust the guests. “People will need vacations after this wedding,” Chopra told the magazine. Sounds like this couple has a lot more in store for their guests and we can’t wait to hear all about it.
