Did you also spend the weekend refreshing the Instagram feeds of Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas, and all their celebrity friends for glimpses of their wedding? The couple has been slowly rolling out photos from their various prewedding ceremonies, but exclusive images of the main events have been revealed in People.
We knew that, for the Christian portion of the event, both the bride and groom would be wearing Ralph Lauren, a tidbit dropped as part of a Vogue cover story. (For the Hindu ceremony, Indian designer Sabyasachi outfitted both Chopra and Jonas—her in a traditional red lehenga, him in a sherwani with a hand-embroidered chikan dupatta and a chanderi tissue safa.)
Ralph Lauren is a brand that has special significance for the couple: They attended the 2017 Met Gala together as its guests, marking their first major outing as a duo.
Shortly after announcing their engagement, Chopra and Jonas attended Ralph Lauren’s anniversary show during New York Fashion Week in September.
This wedding is a pretty significant moment for Ralph Lauren as a brand: According to Vogue, the brand has designed bespoke bridal and bridesmaid looks only for members of Lauren’s family—but he made an exception for this couple. (“He personally came to Chopra with sketches,” the magazine noted.) And the result did not disappoint.
Ralph Lauren created a total of 34 outfits for the wedding ceremony: Chopra’s dress, Jonas’ tuxedo, Chopra’s mother’s look, Jonas’ mother’s outfit, Jonas’ father’s suit, 12 bridesmaid dresses, 12 groomsmen tuxedos, four flower girl dresses, and the ring bearer look. (For the reception following the Christian ceremony, the bride changed into a different ivory dress, also by Ralph Lauren.)
The main event was obviously the bride’s gown: a long-sleeve, high-neck, hand-beaded, hand-embroidered two-layer dress. The sheer top was crafted from tulle and embellished with mother-of-pearl paillettes, crystal seed beads, Swarovski crystals, and satin colored buttons; according to the brand, this portion of the dress took 1,826 hours alone to make. Underneath, there was a strapless, sequined column dress—complete with 2,380,000 mother-of-pearl sequins, per Ralph Lauren. Her veil was a very low-key 75-feet long. You can see the newlyweds on People‘s Instagram, as well as watch a video of Chopra walking down the aisle.
Chopra’s Ralph Lauren wedding dress was filled with hidden personal details. Firstly, a piece of her now mother-in-law’s wedding dress was incorporated into the design. Then she had eight words and phrases sprinkled throughout the embroidery: Nicholas Jerry Jonas (her husband’s name), 1st December 2018 (her wedding date), Madhu & Ashok (her mother’s and father’s names), Om Namah Shivay (a Hindi mantra), Family, Hope, Compassion, and Love.
Jonas, too, opted to sprinkle some nods to his wife into his wedding tuxedo: A piece of Chopra’s gown was stitched to the inside of his Ralph Lauren Purple Label blazer, with the words My Jaan (“My Life” in Urdu).
Ah, you’ve got to love love.
