INSIDE PRIYANKA’S BRIDAL SHOWER
The countdown to Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s wedding is officially on! Before their December nuptials in her native India, the Baywatch star, 36, celebrated her bridal shower at Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Box Cafe in NYC on Oct. 28. She looked like a bride in a strapless white Marchesa gown (pictured above), and when asked if she was excited, she replied, “So much!” CELEBRATION Two of the former Miss World’s bridesmaids, film producer Mubina Rattonsey and tech investor Anjula Acharia, helped plan the star-studded soirée and delivered speeches in honor of their pal. Kelly Ripa, Lupita Nyong’o and Chopra’s future sister-in-law Danielle Jonas (with her daughter Alena, 4, in tow) were among the guests dancing the night away as a DJ spun Bollywood tunes. After a bit of girl time, the men joined the party, including the groom’s brother Kevin Jonas, dad Paul Jonas, and Chopra’s Quantico costar Russell Tovey.(Joe Jonas spent the weekend in LA, where he celebrated Halloween with fiancée Sophie Turner and caught Game 5 of the World Series.) Leaving the shower, guests looked “really happy and tired,” and held favor bags containing a miniature bottle of champagne and a wrapped gift from Tiffany & Co., a source tells Us. As Paul bid a fellow guest goodbye, the insider reveals, “he said that he’d see her in India!”
Jonas, 26 (below, with Chopra in August), “knew he was going to marry Priyanka early on in their relationship,” says a source.
