Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's Decemeber 1 nuptials were nothing short of lavish. From their royal palace wedding venue to their Ralph Lauren wedding day attire, it was no expenses spared for their big day. The couple reportedly dished out half a million dollars for their week-long wedding celebrations, and we're taking a look at exactly how their budget breaks down.
Travel: From $1,300 to $21,000
The couple flew from New York to Jodhpur for their wedding, which requires a minimum of two flights. A coach-priced ticket averages about $1,300, whereas a first class seat can range from $8,000 to $21,000.
Pre-Wedding Celebrations: approximately $61,000
Chopra and Jonas kicked off their special week with a handful of traditional Indian pre-wedding celebrations, including the Haldi, Sangeet, and Mehendi. The ceremonies were set to take place at the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur but were later moved to the palace. According to India's Daily News and Analysis, the catering for three ceremonies cost nearly $61,000.
Wedding Venue: estimated $92,000/night
The couple held their Christian ceremony and reception at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, a royal palace turned five-star hotel. Daily News and Analysis said the couple and their guests booked the entire palace from November 29 to December 3 for an estimated $92,000 per night.
While those expenses were likely the most prominent ones in their wedding budget, there are still dozens of other cost factors to take into consideration. Both the bride and groom wore custom-made Ralph Lauren outfits and hosted a full-fledged dance competition at their reception. Mr. and Mrs. Jonas have been quick to share photos and footage from their big day, so we can expect to see plenty of other shots from the extravagant ceremony in days to come.
