Their wedding celebration took place at the Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur and we are absolutely charmed by their dream-like wedding pictures.
So, what are you waiting for? Steal these new wedding trends from NickYanka’s wedding if you want your wedding to be just as grand as theirs.
1. The Gorgeous Long Train!
Priyanka Chopra is amongst those 4 elite brides who had the opportunity to get their wedding dress designed by Ralph Lauren. He gave Peecee a 75-feet long train which was bigger than Princess Diana’s. Long trains are catching up big time in the bridal world now. Many brides are opting for long trains with their lehengas and sarees. We would love to see this more in year 2019!
2. Hide Meaningful Words In Your Wedding Outfit!
Giving a personal touch to the wedding dress is a beautiful trend that most of the brides follow. Priyanka got eight special words embroidered on her wedding gown, including the name of the groom and her parents, their wedding date and words like ‘love’ and ‘joy’.
3. A Piece of Bride’s Dress for the Groom!
Not just Priyanka but Nick Jonas also did something special with his wedding suit. He got a piece of lace from Priyanka’s dresses stitched into his lapel with urdu words “My Jaan”. This thoughtful gesture is something that we would like more grooms to adopt.
4. Officiate In The Presence Of Family!
Weddings are intimate and if you want to keep it really personal then you should do what Priyanka and Nick Jonas did. Instead of asking an official to do the job, they asked Nick’s father to officiate their wedding. Let your parents know how grateful you are to them with such gestures.
5. The Right Balance Between Bold And Subtle Colours For Wedding Outfits!
We are witnessing a new wedding trend where couple either go for subtle colours or the bold ones. Priyanka and Nick, however, found the perfect balance. They wore light shades for half of the occasions and the bold colours for the rest. They kept on alternating between the two to break the monotony.
6. Minimalistic Makeup Look for the Bride
For the entire wedding celebration, we saw Priyanka in her dewy makeup and dark lipstick. In contrast to the bridal makeup that we saw earlier, celebrities these days are choosing subtle makeup for their D-day which we are hoping our new age brides will follow too!
7. Elegant Diamond Jewellery For The Wedding Day!
Priyanka brought back elegant diamond jewellery in fashion. Instead of following the trend of wearing heavy Kundan and polki chokers for the wedding, she opted for modern diamond jewellery, designed for her by Chopard. We are sure that more brides will be wearing diamonds for their wedding day now.
8. Flowers Are The Best Hair Accessory For The Bride!
After Anushka Sharma’s beautiful flower inspired bridal hairstyle, we have finally found another celebrity bride that put her trust in flowers. Priyanka Chopra wore colourful flowers for her mehendi, wedding and Delhi reception. Flowers truly are the best hair accessories for brides to carry on their D-Day!
9. Walking Down The Aisle With The Dear Mother!
Traditionally, it is the father of the bride or her brother that walks her down the aisle. Being a strong woman that Priyanka is, she chose to make this beautiful walk along with her mother. Surprisingly, Nick was also accompanied by her mother. Aint this one of the newest wedding trends to steal for 2019 weddings?
10. A Grand Sangeet For All That Pre-Wedding Fun!
One cannot deny that the sangeet is the most enjoyable pre-wedding function in indian weddings. However, the trend of hosting a grand sangeet where everyone performs is fading away slowly. Priyanka and Nick got that trend back by asking everyone to be a part of their celebrations. Their grand sangeet will be remembered by everyone for a very long time.
11. Saree Is The Perfect Pre-Wedding Bridal Outfit!
Priyanka Chopra wore a gorgeous saree for her grand sangeet and proved that it is the best thing that an Indian bride can wear. This traditional wear is contemporary in nature. Thus, it never goes out of style. You, too, can wear a saree at one of your pre-wedding events and steal the show just like Priyanka did! Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding is something that will always remind us of a beautiful blend of two different cultures. These two make us believe in the power of love. If you are meant to be with someone, you will find them even if you have to cross borders for that. Their colorful wedding has set many new weddings trends and we loved every each one of them!
