Bringing a mix of cultures and faiths, the couple had a Christian ceremony followed by a Hindu ceremony the next day. For the Christian ceremony, Chopra wore a hand-beaded and embroidered Ralph Lauren gown (marking this first time that Ralph Lauren designed a wedding gown for a non-family member) with a stunning 75-foot long veil, which was even longer than Meghan Markle’s royal wedding veil. Jonas wore a custom suit from Ralph Lauren. Their wedding band and all jewels were from Chopard.

Chopra also wanted to honor her husband-to-be as well as her parents. The Ralph Lauren team hand-stitched eight words and phrases on to the gown including Jonas’ full name (Nicholas Jerry Jonas), the couple’s wedding date and the names of her parents (Madhu & Ashok). To add to that, she had a piece of her mother-in-law’s lace wedding dress sewn into her dress. On his part, Jonas had the inside of the lapel of the tuxedo engraved with the Urdu words “My Jaan” which translates to “My Life” along with a piece of lace from her dress.
