Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are married!
Priyanka wore a custom-made hand-beaded and embroidered Ralph Lauren gown with a 75-foot long trail during the Christian wedding, while Nick opted for a black suit by the same designer. Inside of the purple lapel of the tuxedo, he added a small piece of lace from the bride’s dress embroidered with the Urdu words “My Jaan” which translates to “My Life”.
Chopra shared that working with the team at Ralph Lauren was very sentimental. “They’re so much a part of our love story for obvious reasons,” she said to People magazine.
“For the Western wedding, we had been talking to a bunch of incredible designers, but ultimately when Ralph Lauren approached us, I learned that Ralph has only designed three wedding dresses in 50 years — one for his daughter, his daughter in law, and his niece,” Chopra explains, adding, “I was blown away.”
When Ralph met with Priyanka to hand-deliver the sketch for the dress, she says it was love at first sight. “When we went in for the sketch presentation, they created exactly what I envisioned for myself on my wedding day… and I said, ‘Yes’ to the dress,” she recalls.
The making of the exquisite gown took a total of 1,826 hours to complete, according to the brand. The dress is hand-beaded and hand-embroidered and it features floral and scroll motifs, lace-effect tulle appliqués, scalloped sleeves, and a high-neck collar. Underneath her long-sleeve gown, Chopra wore a strapless column dress made up of 2,380,000 mother of pearl sequins. She finished off her look with long tulle veil that reached 75 feet and custom Jimmy Choo shoes.
Living in the era of social media, people couldn’t miss the opportunity to create some hilarious memes and jokes about her wedding veil. One calls it ‘groundsmen covering cricket pitch’ – scroll down to see the funniest ones so far:
