Nick Jonas can take Priyanka Chopra and their families sure know how to wedding.
The bride shared on Instagram on Sunday morning, a day after the couple’s nuptials, photos and a video from their pre-wedding Sangeet party in the actress’ native India. During the event, two teams made up of their family and friends donned lavish traditional outfits and competed against each other by re-enacting via dances onstage their own interpretations of how Priyanka and Chopra met, resulting in a production fit for Bollywood.
“It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love,” Priyanka wrote on Instagram. “Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together.”
“And what a performance it was,” she said. “Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends.. #grateful @nickjonas.”

Priyanka wore a hand-embroidered gold and silver Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla sari to the Sangeet. Nick sported a dark blue sherwani and also appeared onstage in a blue bandh gala silk kurta, a matching silk jacket, silver pants and blue loafers.
The group danced to both Hindi and English-language tracks. There were many group dances. Priyanka also had a mother-daughter dance with mom Madhu Chopra. The bride’s cousin, Parineeti Chopra had a solo dance.
Nick’s brother and fellow singer Joe Jonas performed a song. Joe’s fiancée Sophie Turner, Kevin Jonas and wife Danielle Jonas and fellow brother Frankie Jonas are also seen in the images.
“Nick and Priyanka were laughing and had a great time watching all the performances!” a source told E! News.
The Sangeet was one of several pre-wedding events for Priyanka and Nick, 26. On Saturday, they shared photos from their Mehendi ceremony, marking their first pics from their wedding weekend.
The two were pronounced husband and wife at a Western, Christian ceremony that day. Priyanka and Nick plan on continuing their festivities with a traditional Hindi wedding ceremony on Sunday.
