Did you spend the majority of your weekend refreshing Instagram for updates on Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's wedding? No shame. With the pair saying "I do" in an actual palace in India, the affair had a lot of hype to live up to. New details and photos are slowly beginning to emerge from the big day (yay!), and we now have more info on the recent bride's fit-for-royalty wedding dresses to curb your "Prick" (they said it first, not us) obsession.

For the couple's Western ceremony on Saturday, the bride came full circle, turning to the designer who invited them both to 2017's Met Gala during the early stages of their relationship—Ralph Lauren—to create her white frock. "They’re so much a part of our love story for obvious reasons," Chopra gushed to People about the label's design team.

And the team definitely had their work cut out for them. People reports that Chopra's long-sleeve, high-neck gown took a whopping 1,826 hours to hand-embroider. Not to mention, an inner layer of the lace-illusion frock was also decked out in 2,380,000 mother of pearl sequins. An ensemble this luxe naturally called for equally over-the-top accessories, so the bride relied on a 75-foot veil (one-upping even Meghan Markle's) to cap off the look.

Chopra, who shared a glimpse of the gown to her Instagram, joins an exclusive rank of Ralph Lauren brides. "For the Western wedding, we had been talking to a bunch of incredible designers, but ultimately when Ralph Lauren approached us, I learned that Ralph has only designed three wedding dresses in 50 years—one for his daughter, his daughter-in-law, and his niece," she explained.

Honoring her heritage, Chopra shifted gears and wowed in a red lehenga during the pair's Hindu ceremony on Sunday. For the occasion, she tapped Indian designer Sabyasachi—and this stunner similarly wasn't made overnight. According to People, the skirt, top, and veil combo set 110 embroiders back about 3,720 hours.

"I always knew I wanted a red traditional silhouette for my wedding but Sabya brought in incredible French embroidery to the mix and with incredible jewelry and Western-inspired veil it was just such an amalgamation of who I am," Chopra told People.

As evidenced by a photo posted to Jonas' Instagram earlier today, the groom also traded his classic tux for a traditional Indian outfit to pay tribute to his bride's culture. And, continuing their matching trend, both the newlyweds donned Christian Louboutin shoes.

Despite the grandiose nature of their outfits, the duo did sprinkle in a few personal touches. Chopra, had her parents' and newfound husband's names embroidered into both of her wedding outfits. Jonas returned the favor during the initial wedding ceremony by wearing a snippet of the bride's dress inside his tuxedo lapel, which had been customized with the words "My Life" in Urdu.

The couple reportedly doled out half a million dollars to bring their wedding weekend to life, so we can only imagine how significant the fashion chunk was for the festivities—especially with Chopra's attire racking up a combined 5,546 hours of manpower.
