Priyanka Chopra spared no expense for her wedding to singer Nick Jonas, wearing a stunning ensemble for her reception that reportedly took 12,000 man-hours of work, as reported by E! Entertainment.
The former Quantico star wore a silver-blush beaded lehenga designed by Falguni Shane Peacock for the party after her wedding to the “Jealous” singer.
E! reported that the creative directors for the brand, Falguni, and Shane Peacock, explained the extreme amount of hours it took to create her look on Instagram. According to the designers, the lehenga took 12,000 man-hours of work and 80 craftsmen to create.
They claim the elaborate fashion statement featured crystal hand embroidered motifs from the wedding in Jodhpur, including elephants, birds, flowers and butterflies.
To accentuate her beauty further, Chopra wore diamond earrings and a statement necklace by Khanna Jewellers reported E!.
Chopra and Jonas’ reception was held at the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi. There were reportedly 1,000 people at the couple’s reception, including Jonas’ brother Joe Jonas, and future sister-in-law, Sophie Turner, brother Frankie Jonas, brother Kevin Jonas, wife Danielle and their two daughters, who were in the wedding party. The couple was also feted by several Bollywood stars and the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi.

“Their moods were very jubilant,” a source close to the couple said to E! News. “She was happy and addressing everyone in the party. She was also being very accommodating to the photographers. She and Jonas look like they are on top of the world.”
