Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding might just be the biggest Hollywood-slash-Bollywood wedding celebration of the year!

Just a few more hours from the official wedding ceremonies of the couple Priyanka and Nick, we are treated to the official photos and video of the couple’s Sangeet, one of the many pre-wedding preparation in a traditional Hindu wedding.

Sangeet, which translates to “sung together” in Sanskrit, is a pre-wedding ritual where the families and friends of the bride and groom come together to perform songs and dances that celebrate the story and love of the couple. It’s essentially a day to enjoy and have fun for the couple and their families, and for them to get to know each other before the wedding proper.

And boy was Nick and Priyanka’s Sangeet huge! From the video posted by Priyanka on her Instagram, the Sangeet looked like a full-blown Hollywood music awards event!

 

 

Priyanka shared about their Sangeet: “It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love...And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends..”

The photos were beautiful and all captured the joy and love between the couple and their families. Nick had his own dance and song number and was dressed with his brothers in a Jodhpuri suit, a formal evening suit in India.

The wedding looks like a huge deal not only for the Chopras but also for the whole Indian community. Hindustan Times reports that even the locals in Priyanka’s childhood hometown in Bareilly joined in by decorating Priyanka’s old home.

The Mehendi

Prior to the Sangeet, Priyanka and Nick also participated in a Mehendi, an important tradition for bride-to-bes where the women in the family gather together to adorn their hands with henna tattoos. Hindus believe that the Mehendi is a sign of good luck and fertility. Priyanka and Nick held their Mehendi at the glamorous Umaid Bhawan Palace in Rajasthan, India, one of the world’s largest private residences that is managed by the Taj hotels, where accommodation can cost up to $60,000 per night.

Nick posts this photo of their Mehendi and says, “One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other’s faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing.”

 

 

During the Mehendi, Priyanka wore a colourful organdy sherwani, also by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, paired with jewelry studded with fine rubies. The same Mumbai-based label dressed Nick in a traditional aqua bakhiya kurta.
