Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra have touched down in India ahead of their wedding! While the rest of us were preparing turkey, the couple spent their Thanksgiving getting ready for another big event this holiday season.
Over the last few months, rumors have been swirling that their wedding would take place in India over the holidays, and the pair’s recent Instagram activity may have confirmed it. On Thursday, Jonas posted a photo of himself flying above New York City with the caption, “See you later NYC…” A few hours later, Chopra followed up on her own feed with a snuggly shot of she and her fiancé, captioned “Welcome home baby… 😍,” with a geotag of New Delhi, India. In the past, she has referred to India as Jonas’ “other home,” noting how comfortable he was in her native country after only a few visits.
Then, late on Thursday, Jonas shared a photo of he and Chopra at the head of a long (white!) table in New Delhi surrounded by dozens of their loved ones. “What a beautiful Thanksgiving. Hope you all had the best day with your loved ones,” he wrote alongside the shot. Chopra posted the same photo, writing, “Happy thanksgiving.. family.. forever..”
Various Indian news outlets have reported that the couple has booked pre-wedding events for November 29th and 30th (first the sangeet ceremony, followed by the mehendi function), which will culminate in a Hindu wedding ceremony on December 2nd. The nuptials will reportedly take place at an actual palace: Taj’s Umaid Bhawan Palace in the Blue City of Jodhpur, a 347-room hotel that serves as primary residence of the Jodhpur royal family.
Their big day is expected to be a traditional Indian ceremony with “a mix of Indian and American styles and customs.” “I haven’t forced any of my thoughts on her, but I definitely want a traditional Indian wedding,” Chopra’s mother, Madhu Chopra, said shortly after their engagement. “That’s my only wish. I started the roka with a puja, which is important for me. I’m a modern mother, but at heart, I’m quite conservative.”
Based on all of the couple’s lavish pre-wedding celebrations — their engagement party in Mumbai, Chopra’s bridal shower at Tiffany’s Blue Box Cafe, and the bachelor and bachelorette weekends — we have no doubt that their wedding day will be one to remember.
