Priyanka Chopra's Lavish Wedding Gave Umaid Bhawan 3 Months' Worth Of Revenue

As Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas recently celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary, we couldn't help but remember their extravagant Jodhpur wedding held at Umaid Bhavan. Everything about that wedding exuded luxury and opulence, and while we were sure that it cost--ahem--a LOT of money, we never knew the exact amount. But, now we have some clue.

According to a top official from India Hotels, Priyanka Chopra’s wedding at Umaid Bhawan was so extravagant that it helped the property ensure that there is no shortfall of revenue for the next three months. 

“That one per cent (of top spenders) helps. Last year, we had Priyanka Chopra’s wedding in Umaid Bhawan Palace and it makes up for the revenue of 3 months,” said Puneet Chhatwal, chief executive officer and managing director of Indian Hotels Company Ltd that operates the Umaid Bhawan Palace.


According to media reports, the couple had spent a whopping amount of Rs 3,27,61,656 (4,61,000 USD) on the hotel itself, that included four-day stays for the wedding party in the palace’s rooms and also the cost of hiring the venue for the big day.

...We're going to need a minute to let that sink in.

While stressing the importance of weddings for the hospitality industry, Chhatwal also said the Isha Ambani-Anand Piramal wedding would also have helped a lot of brands.

Well, we, for one, LOVE being a distant spectator to these extravagant weddings, and PC and Nick's was definitely one of our favourites. To refresh your memory, the couple tied the knot in two ceremonies--one Christian and one Hindu--at Umaid Bhawan Palace last year in December. From their delightful mehendi ceremony to their fun-filled sangeet party, it looked like one heck of a celebration. The entire Jonas clan and the Chopra fam united as they got their kids to officially tie the knot.


Here are some gorgeous pictures from their wedding and some of the gazillion receptions they hosted afterwards:
