Just days after her extravagant five-day wedding bonanza in India wrapped up, Priyanka Chopra has finally revealed her two wedding dresses and they’re just as spectacular as expected.
For the couple’s first Christian ceremony, the bride wore a custom, hand-beaded and hand-embroidered Ralph Lauren dress with floral and scroll motifs, lace-effect full appliqués, and a high neck collar. The dress, which included mother of pearl palettes, crystal seed beads, and Swarovski crystals, took over 1,826 hours to finish and featured a strapless column dress underneath made with over two million mother of pearl sequins. The whole look was topped off by a 75-foot long veil, which seemed fit for a princess. As a sweet little touch, the bride also had eight words and phrases embroidered into the dress’s design including her husband’s full name, Nicholas Jerry Jonas, their wedding date, and Om Namah Shivay, a Hindi mantra.
Ralph Lauren, which inadvertently played a part in the couple getting together after they both attended the 2017 Met Gala as guests of the designer, also dressed most of the wedding party including the groom, who wore a custom Purple Label double breasted black tuxedo, the couple’s parents, the 12 bridesmaids and groomsmen, and the flower girls and ring bearers.
For their second Hindi wedding ceremony, Priyanka donned a red Sabyasachi lehenga with hand-embroidered organza flowers, French knots in silk floss, delicate Siam-red crystals, and threadwork embroidery. The dress was created by 110 embroiderers from Calcutta, and took even longer than her Ralph Lauren wedding gown to complete, clocking in at 3,720 hours—an epic wedding day look for India’s biggest super star.
