Chopra is one of 25 brides and grooms featured in the magazine, which highlights nuptials from across the world, including blogger Chiara Ferragni’s Italian wedding bash to musician Fedez Leonardo Lucia and the wedding of Tommy Hilfgier’s daughter Ally Hilfiger to Steve Hash in 2017.
Chopra and Jonas tied the knot in a Western and Hindu ceremony in December 2018 to honor both of their cultures, and for their Western nuptials, the bride and groom both wore Ralph Lauren designs for a very special reason.
“They’re so much a part of our love story for obvious reasons,” Chopra told PEOPLE in 2018, referencing the time she and Jonas both attended the Met Gala as guests of the designer in 2017 before they began dating.
Chopra’s wedding dress first appeared on the cover of PEOPLE days after saying “I do,” and told the magazine at the time that as soon as she saw the initial designs of the dress, she knew it was the one. “When we went in for the sketch presentation, they created exactly what I envisioned for myself on my wedding day… and I said, ‘Yes’ to the dress,” she told PEOPLE.
“For the Western wedding, we had been talking to a bunch of incredible designers, but ultimately when Ralph Lauren approached us, I learned that Ralph has only designed three wedding dresses in 50 years — one for his daughter, his daughter in law, and his niece,” Chopra explained. “I was blown away.”

The finished design took 1,826 hours to complete and featured a high-neck collar, scalloped sleeves that was designed with floral and scroll motifs and lace-effect tulle appliqués that were all hand-beaded and hand-embroidered. Underneath the long-sleeve gown was a strapless column dress made up of 2,380,000 mother of pearl sequins, and finishing the look was a long tulle veil that reached 75 feet.
The groom wore a custom Ralph Lauren Purple Label double-breasted black tuxedo and custom patent lace-up dress shoes, and included a nod to his bride inside of the lapel of the tuxedo. Jonas added a small piece of lace from Chopra’s dress embroidered with the Urdu words “My Jaan” which translates to “My Life.”
Chopra wanted to honor the people and moments that are most important to her, so the team at Ralph Lauren hand-stitched eight words and phrases on to the gown including Jonas’ full name (Nicholas Jerry Jonas), the couple’s wedding date and the names of her parents (Madhu & Ashok). To add to the familial sentiment behind her design, Chopra had a piece of her mother-in-law’s lace wedding dress sewn into her dress.
