After spectacular festivities spread over weeks, and a 4-day wedding, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are finally husband and wife. The duo has given us major goals over their relationship with adorable pictures on social media, cute gestures and stunning public appearances. Let’s go down the memory lane right from the time the two met! And it was not the MET 2017 Gala!
Backstory & Announcement
Nick Jonas was the one who was whipped! The now 26-year-old got down on one knee and asked, “Where have you been all my life?”. That was all it took for the fire to kindle. Let’s note that the two have been quite the text buddies over the months before actually meeting at the Oscars After Party of 2017 where the incident happened. They were invited by Ralph Lauren for the 2017 Met Gala and ended up going together. But very few knew what was really happening in the side over the past months. Speculations were made and stories were created, the couple made several public appearances nor confirming or denying their relationship to the world. (We all knew it!)
After making things official with several cute pictures on social media, things started moving faster. Nick and Priyanka had their Roka ceremony in Mumbai at PeeCee house according to the Indian customs and traditions. The 36- year old actress looked stunning as ever in a bright yellow lehenga set, while handsome hunk Nick sported an all-white kurta sherwani look for the Roka ceremony. The 25-year-old international pop singer Nick Jonas had flown down for the ring ceremony with family. Sources say that the couple never wanted a long engagement in the first place. Nick said yes to Priyanka on her birthday this year and things have been going strong since then.
Priyanka’s close cousin Parineeti Chopra arrived at the party venue in a cutesy black dress. Alia Bhatt was clicked at the entrance in a black dress as well. Her congratulatory post on Instagram can easily sister’s heart warm and make her nostalgic. She even said, ‘I can’t think of a more perfect man for Priyanka.’ The bride-to-be’s mother Madhu Chopra arrived in a classic monotoned crème saree paired with a darker coloured halter-neck blouse and was looking as classic as ever. Nick’s parents were dressed like any groom-to-be’s modern-day Indian parents – Denise Jonas had draped a pretty pink hued saree and Kevin Jonas Sr was wearing a suit with silver tie. Nick shared a picture with Priyanka and him sharing a perfect family moment with his parents.
And where family comes, Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas, Nick’s elder brothers shared their heartfelt congratulatory on their social media accounts. Joe even shared the couple’s roka photo, captioning it with ‘I couldn’t be happier for my brother. Welcome to the family @priyankachopra. We love you,’ on Instagram. Danielle Jonas, Kevin Jonas Jr’s wife, shared the same picture but captioned it with ‘Congratulations! @nickjonas and @priyankachopra Wishing you a life time of love and happiness’.
There was an ensemble of various other Bollywood celebrities like Siddharth Roy Kapur (producer of PeeCee’s upcoming Bollywood movie – The Sky Is Pink), Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Arpita Khan Sharma, Aayush Sharma, Ronnie Screwvala, VJ Anusha Dandekar, Vishal Bhardwaj, Mushtaq Sheikh and the Ambanis – Mukesh, Neeta and daughter Isha.
Priyanka’s bridal shower was celebrated in New York City with her friends and family. Close friends Mubina Rattonsey and Anjula Acharia along with friends from Hollywood such as Kelly Ripa, Lupita Nyong’o and her future sister-in-law Danielle Jonas and her daughter Alena were present at the party.
Mimi Cutrell, international designer (Priyanka Chopra’s good friend) was the first ones to share pictures from the pre-bridal shower. She is standing next to a balloon banner that reads Bride with a vase of red roses. Stunner! She captioned the picture, “THE bride. @priyankachopra#styledbymimicuttrell”
The actress looked absolutely gorgeous in a white Marchesa feathered dress paired with nude Christian Louboutin pumps (those red bottom heels tho!). She accessorized her look with a diamonds string necklace from Tiffany (the same store where Nick Jonas bought her engagement ring too!). Talk about an expensive look, it seems that the actress shelled out more than Rs.4 lakh for this!
Priyanka Chopra shared a beautiful picture on her IG with the caption, “Love, laughter and a room full of amazing ladies…and some special gentlemen (what a special surprise)! Thank you so much @mubinarattonsey and @anjula_acharia for throwing me such a memorable bridal shower that broke all the rules! My amazing friends and family who made me feel so special and loved, thank you. And to top it off @tiffanyandco 😍 Perfect!” Here’s sharing it with you…
And Priyanka Chopra and her bridal-entourage – her cousin Parineeti Chopra and her close friends, are doing it right it seems. Here are some pictures and videos of PC’s totally fun-filled and adrenaline-pumping bachelorette party (shared by herself and by her friends), which is still going on in the beautiful and picturesque Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The Quantico actress travelled all the way to Paris, France to pick out her wedding shoes. And she made a fantastic choice with the Jimmy Choo collection! Her mum too was seen accompanying her bride-to-be daughter. The two were also seen spending some quality time together. Priyanka gave us a glimpse into her shopping spree on her Instagram story with the note, “it’s happening” and tagging Mimi Cutrell, the same designer who created her Bridal shower gown only a couple of weeks ago.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas shared a list of their wedding registry of $14000 with Amazon via People magazine. You can find rollerblades, wine decanters, throw pillows, record player, dinner plates, gym requirements like dumbbells and a stationary bike on this long list. All the money raised will be given to UNICEF. She made the announcement via Instagram with the caption,”I had so much fun building a wedding registry guide with @amazon. They have everything that you need in one place! Amazon has also made a $100,000 donation to UNICEF, a charity that is extremely important to me!!! For wedding registry inspo, take a look at my guide (link in bio)! #AllOnAmazon#AmazonWeddingRegistry #[email protected]”

In the interview, she stated on why her list is so wild and contains a lot of entertainment goodies, “I’ve always been an entertainer. My home is always bustling with loved ones. I have a very close-knit set of friends and so does Nick and I like being a host. My mom always taught me this, it’s a little classic and old-fashioned, but it’s always very important to be house proud.” Nick Jonas, on the other hand, has just purchased a $6.5 million mansion in Los Angeles. Priyanka Chopra has houses in Mumbai, Delhi, and New York.
Venue – Umaid Bhawan
The couple will be marrying at the princely Umaid Bhawan Palace which costs $60,000 a night! Around 43 lakhs for a single night! The Palace comes with a butler service, strutting peacocks and a couple’s massage room at this cost and much more.
Priyanka Chopra’s mom Madhu Chopra has already arrived at Jodhpur and was seen talking to the paparazzi about the wedding. She stated that out of all the places in the world, she loves Jodhpur the most and is happy that the wedding is here.
She even flaunted a customised Mrs. Jonas hoodie in white over the wedding days.
Fun and happy, the pictures sent fans into a tizzy almost immediately, breaking the internet at once. Pee Cee looked radiant in an Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla outfit, and it is being reported that almost 5 kilograms of mehendi was sent for the occasion. Sources claim that a special mehendi was designed for Priyanka by Ritesh Aggarwal. Coincidentally, Ritesh Agarwal also made mehendi for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – Abhishek Bachchan’s wedding in 2007.
Nick, just like Ranveer, got a mehendi on his hand which has Priyanka’s name written on it. The dulha was also carried on the shoulders of PeeCee’s brother Siddharth, in the typical Indian and filmy style. He is believed to have grooved on Bom Diggy Diggy and Tune Maari Entriyan, also crooning for his ladylove.
The couple posed while having a friendly cricket match between Team Nick and Team Priyanka. Nick is seen hitting an apparent six with a T-shirt with the title Team Groom. Umaid Bhawan was all lit up and decorated for the event.
A surprising yet heartwarming detail in Priyanka Chopra’s mehendi was the guitar! Did you spot it?
Priyanka Chopra Jonas shared a bunch of new pictures from their Sangeet ceremony as well that turned out into a major dance competition. You can her dancing with her mom Madhu Chopra, her girl gang and beau Nick impressing her with his moves. We are yet to wonder who won that trophy but we know who won our hearts!
She captioned the pictures, “It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always. as a huge celebration of love. Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening). another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends.. #grateful,”
Joseph Radik, who is filming the Nickyanka wedding, was apparently mesmerised by the spectacular celebrations! He posted a story on Instagram that read, “OK. It’s been 8 years of wedding photography, and tonight I may just have witnessed the most amazing Sangeet night of em all. Wow.” Radik has also filmed Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s wedding in Italy.
PeeCee and Nick first had a Christian service officiated by Nick’s father, followed by the Hindu nuptials on 2nd December. The couple married in the presence of close family and friends at Umaid Bhawan.
Nick’s dad Paul Kevin Jonas Sr handed over Priyanka Chopra to Nick in place of her late father Dr. Ashok Chopra at the wedding. The couple sealed the Christian wedding with a kiss. In custom-made outfits by Ralph Lauren, the couple’s wedding bands were designed by Chopard. Isha Ambani, Arpita Khan Sharma, Parineeti Chopra, and others were her bridesmaids. Kevin, Joe and Siddharth Chopra were the groomsmen for the wedding
The couple wore Ralph Lauren’s creation for their Christian wedding. While Priyanka flaunted a beautiful pearly white gown, Nick opted for a six-buttoned black tuxedo with custom patent lace-up shoes. The custom-made Ralph Lauren wedding gown was a masterpiece, indeed! Taking 1,826 long hours to create it, the incredible one-of-a-kind sheer white wedding gown was hand-beaded and hand-embroidered with Swarovski crystals and 23,80,000 mother of pearl sequins; it featured floral and scroll designs and lace-effect tulle appliqués with scalloped sleeves and a high-neck collar, giving her a very royal look. The sheer wedding gown was fashionably worn over a strapless column dress. A 75-foot long tulle veil completed the beautiful bride’s white wedding attire.
What warmed our hearts was Nick’s romantic touch to his wedding tuxedo – he requested the tux maker to stitch a small piece of lace from his bride’s wedding dress inside of the purple lapel of his tux with the words ‘My Jaan’ embroidered with it.
They even recreated the MET 2017 classic pose with her wedding gown train! How cute!
Here’s a glimpse into the very moving first dance!
A multi-tiered white and gold wedding cake was brought in from Dubai and Kuwait for the cake-cutting tradition at Nickyanka’s Christian wedding.
Just like any Indian bride’s bridal dreams, Priyanka too opted for a magnificent lehenga in the perfect shade of red for her Hindu wedding on 2nd December. It won’t be a surprise to know that bride’s wedding created by the best-in-business Sabyasachi Mukherjee. After creating Deepika Padukone’s and Ranveer Singh’s exclusive and extensive wedding trousseau, Sabyasachi yet again threw us in awe of his creation.
Speaking to an international publication, Priyanka said, ‘For the Indian wedding, I wore Sabyasachi. I always knew I wanted a red traditional silhouette for my wedding but Sabyasachi brought in incredible French embroidery to the mix and with incredible jewelry and western inspired veil it was just such an amalgamation of who I am!’. Pairing her red lehenga with bridal jewellery – maang tikka, big stunning nose ring with hair chain, chooda, kalira, etc., our ‘Desi Girl’ looked like our perfect bride. While Priyanka looked like a vision in red, Nick opted for a traditional white-and-gold sherwani, golden jootis and a magnificent golden turban and looked nothing lesser than a dreamy Indian prince himself.
Guests & Gifts
We’ve just got a glimpse into the wedding favours their guests would be getting. Wrapped in white, the gifts boasts of a personalised touch, having NP on each of them.
First Look – Post Wedding
In a blue-green net saree and her red choodas, Priyanka Chopra looked the perfect new bride with a deep sindoor filled maang, dainty mangalsutra and rich mehendi covered hands. Can’t miss her favorite cat-eye sunglasses! Nick Jonas looked smart in a brown jacket pant set with a white undershirt and dark aviators with white shoes.
The grand reception bash was at the Taj Palace in Delhi for PeeCee’s friends and family. Even PM Modi made an appearance at the party to wish the couple and click pictures with the family. Artful pink floral arrangements with pink lights were everywhere. Their trademark logo with ‘NP’ used first at their Roka ceremony was also laid as a backdrop for the media pictures.
Priyanka Chopra wasn’t the only beauty in the event; future sister-in-law, Sophie Turner looked beautiful in a pastel Sabyasachi lehenga with a heavy jewelry and a matching maang teeka on her forehead. Joe Jonas opted for a dark blue double button suit for the party. Mother-in-law Denise Jonas looked stunning in a pastel-colored Anarkali and fit right in the Indian festivities.
The couple was spotted for their first public outing at the Bumble launch party. PeeCee is the ambassador of the app and was all smiles with husband Nick Jonas. In a beige brown dress with a belt and halter neck, Priyanka looked fresh and radiant alongside Nick in a light grey suit and a dark shirt.
Unfortunately, there won’t be a Mumbai reception just yet for the lovebirds. Farhan Akhtar, PeeCee’s co-star in ‘The Sky is Pink’ told sources that he hasn’t received any invite yet since everyone is busy with the movie and its promotions.
Looks like we’ll just have to wait for the next round of pictures of #Nickyanka
