It has been a huge year for best friends Meghan Markle and Priyanka Chopra. They both got to marry the men of their dreams, Chopra had the chance to be even there at Windsor to support her bestie on her big day. Meghan sadly missed Chopra’s lavish two wedding ceremonies, but she did have a great excuse as she is expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry.

For her Christina wedding ceremony, Priyanka wore a custom-made hand-beaded and embroidered Ralph Lauren gown with a 75-foot long trail. Her veil was even longer than Meghan’s 16.4 foot-long veil at the royal wedding this May. Chopra’s veil required assistance from five people to bring to the altar where Jonas was awaiting her. Wow!

Meghan Markle’s veil was 16-foot-long and it famously featured wildflowers associated with all 53 Commonwealth nations. “It was important for me, especially as a part of the royal family, to have all 53 of the Commonwealth countries incorporated. I knew that it would be a fun surprise as well for my now husband, who didn’t know, and he was really over the moon to find out that I would make this choice for our day together. I stuck in a couple of flowers that were important to me as well personally. There is a California poppy in there which has nothing to do with the Commonwealth, but it’s where I’m from. It’s ours. It really feels like it’s all-important to us,” the Duchess shared in a documentary dedicated to the Queen.

Jonas, meanwhile, wore a custom Ralph Lauren double-breasted tuxedo with a personalized message from his bride: “My Jaan” which means “My Life.”

“I love that our wedding is a religious mash-up,” the bride told Hello!. “We are taking beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and we are personalizing them in a way that makes sense for us.” Chopra also added that the joint ceremonies have helped them “find the commonalities between our beliefs” and taught them “how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.”

A fan was fast to create a funny meme comparing both:
