If you thought Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘ weeklong wedding seemed over-the-top, just wait ’til you see the bride’s dress.
The Bollywood beauty, 36, wore a custom Ralph Lauren gown for her Christian wedding ceremony that took 1,826 hours to embroider by hand, according to People. Underneath the sheer long-sleeved gown was a strapless column dress featuring a whopping 2,380,000 sequins.
“They’re so much a part of our love story for obvious reasons,” Chopra told the outlet of Ralph Lauren — and fittingly, her dress included a few special personal touches that nodded to the couple’s courtship.
Jonas’ full name, Nicholas Jerry Jonas, was hand-stitched onto the fabric, as was the pair’s wedding date (“1st December 2018”), the names of Chopra’s parents (“Madhu & Ashok”), the Hindi mantra “Om Namah Shivay” (invoking Lord Shiva) and the words “Family,” “Hope,” “Compassion” and “Love.”
A piece of Jonas’ mother’s wedding dress was sewn into Chopra’s, while a section of lace from Chopra’s gown embroidered with “My Jaan” (“my life”) was stitched inside Jonas’ custom Ralph Lauren Purple Label tuxedo. Chopra finished the fairytale look with a 75-foot-long veil and custom Jimmy Choo shoes, and the couple exchanged Chopard wedding bands.
For Jonas and Chopra’s Hindu wedding ceremony on Sunday, the bride chose a red lehenga — an embroidered floor-length skirt with a matching cropped top and veil — and had Jonas’ and her parents’ names sewn into the skirt’s waistband, according to People. The custom look by Indian designer Sabyasachi took 110 embroiderers 3,720 hours to make.
“I always knew I wanted a red traditional silhouette for my wedding but Sabya 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,” Chopra told the magazine.
The “Baywatch” star accessorized with a Chopard necklace featuring a 16-carat diamond drop, which she wore on her head. Jonas, meanwhile, wore a traditional Indian outfit and turban.
