Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas aren’t just going all out for themselves but for their wedding guests too. The lucky invitees have begun arriving at the couple's venue, the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, and were reportedly greeted by some—as expected—over-the-top wedding welcome gifts.
Despite some social media lockdowns, a few of the guests posted their treats to Instagram. Jewelry designer Mitali Handa shared a glimpse of her “Oh Sh*t Kit” to IG stories. (The shot features an actual white and gold Santa-like sack of gifts.) Other goodies, according to the Daily Mail, include Indian treats, shoes, an information guide, and two books: "Western Weddings for Dummies" and "Indian Weddings for Dummies." Personalized coins were also included, featuring the god Ganesha and goddess Laxmi.
The Daily Mail also adds that upon arrival guests have the opportunity to write on the wishing well tree set up at the hotel to send messages of love and support to the happy couple.
These special moments are only a taste of what’s to come. In an interview with Vogue, Jonas revealed he will make a traditional entrance in to their wedding—riding in on a horse, wearing a turban, and carrying a sword. During the ceremony Chopra and her soon-to-be husband will walk around a fire seven times, once for each of the seven lifetimes they will spend together. Admitting that the nuptials will be elaborate, Chopra told Vogue, “People will need vacations after this wedding.”
If a week-long wedding and Jonas’s grand entrance weren’t enough, there is also a lot of speculation that the Jonas Brother will serenade his new wife at the wedding. Other entertainers include Indian pop group Sanam who, according to the Daily Mail, posted to Instagram stories a clip of themselves rehearsing for the ceremony.
The night should end with a literal bang. Boxes of fireworks were driven in from Mumbai and were seen piled in a field near the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, according to the Daily Mail. It’s safe to say guests can expect a memorable weekend.
