The Jonas and Chopra families are ready to party. In just days, unexpected couple of 2018 Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas will be married following a whirlwind courtship and subsequent engagement.

On Monday, November 26, the groom’s side of the family, including Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, touched down in Mumbai, India, to help kick off the wedding week festivities. Everyone reunited in Juhu, a coastal neighborhood of Mumbai, where Chopra owns a home. There, the families enjoyed a dinner at a swanky oceanfront restaurant known as Estella.

On November 28, the pair will start all the formal ceremonies with an intimate Ganesh Puja, which is known as a prayer to bless the days ahead.

The rest of the wedding week will be rather packed as the puja will be followed by a Mehndi party. The Mehndi is a ritual and celebration where female guests and family members gather inside the bride’s home, enjoying the experience of having beautiful henna applied to their hands and feet.

Following the Mehndi, the couple will celebrate the Sangeet, when the party truly begins. This particular leg is marked by song and dance, featuring plenty of Bollywood dance medleys (an industry in which, of course, Chopra has long ruled during her tenure as an actress).

Both are set to take place on November 29.

The following day, the pair will host a cocktail party welcoming all friends. The Haldi ceremony will be held on December 1. This portion of the wedding week is when Haldi paste (turmeric, chickpea flower and rose water) is applied to the bride with the purpose of evening out her skin tone before the wedding itself.

Then the commitments will take place. The couple will host a formal Indian wedding on December 2, followed by a Christian wedding ceremony in accordance with their faiths on the 3rd.

It’s reported that the pair will exchange vows at the famed, Taj Hotels-operated Umaid Bhawan Palace, in Jodhpur, India.
