Priyanka Chopra dazzled beside husband Nick Jonas in a crystal-encrusted dress at her wedding reception.

For the party, which was held at the Taj Palace in New Delhi, India, yesterday, Priyanka, 36, wore a traditional three-piece gown known as a lehenga, consisting of a fitted coat, midriff baring top (or choli) and an ankle length skirt, designed by Falguni Shane Peacock.

The gown is said to have taken 12,000 hours to create and features millions of crystals, according to an Instagram post by the designer.

In keeping with the Indian wedding tradition, Priyanka had a henna pattern on both of her hands.

Nick, 26, wore a navy velvet suit with a matching bow tie and a white shirt.

The Bollywood film star, whose wedding celebrations kicked off last Saturday, has already worn two bridal outfits.

Yesterday, pictures surfaced of Priyanka’s white wedding dress designed by Ralph Lauren, worn for the Christian ceremony.

In an exclusive interview with People magazine, Priyanka spoke about her joy in combining her and Nick’s different cultures in the wedding ceremonies.

She said: “I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up. We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalised them in a way that made sense for us.

“It’s been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.”
