Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra tied the knot in her native India on Saturday and have certainly spared no expense.
This 25-year-old pop star and 36-year-old actress, who went public with their relationship this past summer following continuous rumors, reportedly spent more than half a million dollars on their wedding festivities, which spanned the whole week.
Wedding Venue and Accommodations: An estimated $461,000, or $92,000 a night
Jonas and Chopra exchanged vows in a Western, Christian ceremony at the five-star heritage hotel Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur on Saturday. They plan on having a traditional Hindu ceremony there as well. According to Indian newspaper Daily News and Analysis, both the couple and both their families booked the entire hotel for the wedding from November 29 to December 3 for approximately Rs 64.40 lakh per night.
Food: $86 a plate minimum, according to India-based wedding.net.
The pre-wedding ceremonies, including the Haldi, Sangeet and Mehendi, were supposed to take place at the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur but were later moved to the palace for security reasons, according to local reports. An official at the fort told India’s Daily News and Analysis that the catering for three ceremonies costs roughly around Rs 43 lakh.
Plane tickets: An average price of $1,300 round trip for coach, $8,000 to $21,000 for first class
The bride and groom traveled to India in late November to prepare for the wedding. To get from New York to Jodhpur, a person must take a minimum of two flights, usually stopping in either the Indian cities of Mumbai or New Delhi. A second layover, if applicable, is usually in London. A one-way trip from New York to Jodhpur takes more than a full day.
“People will need vacations after this wedding,” Chopra joked to Vogue.
Priyanka Chopra shared a video from her and Nick Jonas‘ Sangeet ceremony, which she describes as a “a fierce song & dance competition between families.”
“It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love. Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (music evening), another pre wedding ritual.. And to see what each side had put together,” Priyanka posted on her Instagram, along with a video and a series of photos from their pre-wedding festivities.
“And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and laughter will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives,” she continued.
It looks like in addition to Nick and Priyanka taking the stage to perform, his brothers Joe and Kevin also took part!
