Priyanka Chopra’s Wedding Reception Ensemble Took 12,000 Hours Of Work To Create

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas officially said ‘I do’, on Saturday, on the 1st of December. The pair tied the knot over the weekend and they held two ceremonies at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, meaning a Christmas service and a traditional Indian ceremony.

During the first ceremony, the beautiful bride opted for a custom Ralph Lauren Gown that featured a 75-foot veil. Priyanka was escorted by her mother, Madhu.

The groom, on the other hand, wore a double-breasted tuxedo by the same brand. His ensemble featured a piece of Priyanka’s dress inside the lapel. The piece rested over his heart and had the words ‘my jaan’, meaning ‘my life’, written on it.

In the second ceremony, Chopra wore a red Indian Lehenga by Sabyasachi. The dress was hand-embroidered and had hand-cut organza flowers, French knots, and red crystals, according to the designer. The piece took 110 embroiderers and 3,720 hours to create.

During the wedding reception, however, Priyanka Chopra opted for a silver-blush beaded lehenga that was designed by Falguni Shane Peacock. Seems like quite a lot of work was dedicated to this ensemble as well.

According to the designers, Falguni and Shane Peacock, the lehenga took 12,000 man-hours of work and 80 craftsmen to create. It featured crystal hand-embroidered pieces from the wedding in Jodhpur, such as elephants, birds, butterflies, and flowers. The bride complemented her royal ensemble with diamond earrings and a necklace by Khanna Jewellers. Not to forget, her new wedding ring!

The reception was held at the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi, and there were 1,000 people, including distinguished guests. In the wedding festivities, the newly-weds were joined by people including several Bollywood stars as well as the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. Chopra took to Twitter to thank the prime minister for attending her wedding, writing:

A heartfelt thank you to our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi ji for gracing us with your presence. Touched by your kind words and blessings. @nickjonas.
