Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are going to have a traditional Indian wedding sometime in December. The couple has reportedly booked the grand Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, in Rajasthan, India, for their wedding. Daily Mail reports that the couple will celebrate their union both through a Christian as well as a Hindu ceremony that will take place at Umaid Bhavan. Priyanka and Nick have started their wedding preparations in full swing. Their big day will be preceded by several other wedding-related events which will begin in the last week of November.
A source told The Sun that the wedding will happen under a 'mandap', a traditional four-pillar structure. "There is a mehndi event planned, where they will be decorated with henna body art among other traditional Hindi pre-wedding events," revealed the source. The bride and groom have also selected what they're going to wear for the occasion. Nick will be dressed in ivory while Priyanka will be in red and her bridesmaids will be in Ralph Lauren ensembles. Choosing Ralph Lauren as the designer is a reference to their first public appearance at the Met Gala when the couple wore the designer's clothes.

The royal palace which has a total of 347 bedrooms is set to host close friends and family members of the couple. The Umaid Bhawan Palace, a private residence, is one of the world's largest, a part of it is also a hotel.
The couple got engaged in July, on Priyanka's 36th birthday after which Nick was seen visiting India on holiday to meet her relatives and other family members. And now in the run-up to the wedding, the 'Jealous' singer had his bachelor party over the weekend on a yacht where he gifted his groomsmen electric scooters. His groomsmen include brothers Kevin, Joe and Franklin, future brother-in-law Siddharth Chopra, and Jonathan Tucker.
Priyanka had her bachelorette party in Amsterdam, accompanied by a group of friends and future sister-in-law Sophie Turner, who is engaged to Nick's brother Joe. The actress put up several pictures on Instagram of the celebrations, including the outfits that she wore.
The adorable couple is constantly commenting on each others' Instagram posts, Nick recently admitted to stalking his to-be wife's profile rather frequently. In a comment on one of her Bachelorette weekend photographs, he wrote: "I am fully stalking you, you are so beautiful."
In an interview with Jason Kennedy for E! Nick spoke about his unique connection with Priyanka saying, “So many things... I can go on and get all mushy but the thing that really connected both of us is our love for family and faith and importance of being connected to those who are always going to be with you. And we found that in each other as well, which is a beautiful thing and I am excited to start our life together.”
