Each new bit of information that emerges about their wedding weekend proves that this couple is all about the sentimental details. We already knew that Chopra and Jonas took part in a traditional Hindu pre-wedding Mehendi ceremony in which “all of the women in the bride’s and groom’s families, along with close friends, gather together while the bride has elaborate henna designs applied to her hands and feet.”
Now we know the bride snuck in a romantic nod to her musician husband-to-be during the ceremony: a guitar on the top of her right hand.
“The simple, traditional patterns of Mehendi have become more intricate, elaborate, and customized. Each design has different levels of intricacy and can be made unique for the bride,” henna design expert, Divya Patel tells People. “Nowadays, brides prefer to customize their henna to tell a story or to incorporate elements in their Mehendi that are meaningful to the bride/groom.”
The guitar wasn’t the only hidden tribute to be found at the Chopra/Jonas nuptials, though. Her Ralph Lauren wedding dress was filled with personal details. A piece of her now mother-in-law’s wedding dress was incorporated into the design. Then there were the eight words and phrases sprinkled throughout the embroidery: Nicholas Jerry Jonas (her husband’s name), 1st December 2018 (her wedding date), Madhu & Ashok (her mother’s and father’s names), Om Namah Shivay (a Hindi mantra), Family, Hope, Compassion, and Love. Not to be left out, Jonas had some nods to his wife on his wedding tuxedo: A piece of Chopra’s gown was stitched to the inside of his blazer, with the words My Jaan (“My Life” in Urdu).
Honestly, even the cynics can’t deny that all this thoughtful planning is just super sweet. Well done, you two.
