Where will it be?

Perhaps inspired by her good friend Meghan Markle’s royal wedding earlier this year, Priyanka and Nick have chosen to tie the knot in the Umaid Bhawan Palace, a beautiful and historic building in Jodhpur, India. Built in 1943, it was once the residence of the Jodhpur royal family, and consists of 347 rooms, a museum and a five-star hotel. In fact, a single night’s stay at the hotel costs a whopping S$82,000!

Here’s a peek into the glamorous venue:

 

IT SITS ON A HILL

 

The palace sits on Chittar Hill and overlooks gorgeous countryside. How serene! 

 

THE LOBBY

The palatial lobby decked in the Art Deco style greets guests as they enter the royal palace. 

 

THE BALLROOM

 

Will the soon-to-be newlyweds take their first dance in this beautiful ballroom? The ballroom itself merges West and East with chandeliers from Belgium and teakwood from Burma.

Here's another look at the ballroom when it's all set up. Simply breathtaking: 

 

 

 

A GRAND ENTRANCE

The magnificent entrance has grand staircases leading towards the palace's regal wing. We can just imagine Priyanka coming down the winding stairs in a stunning gown! 

 

INDOOR SWIMMING POOL

Swimming pool or Roman bath? This jaw-dropping pool littered with flower petals is fit for a princess.

The outdoor pool features a breathtaking view of the horizon. Perfect for unwinding after all thir festivities. 

 

THE SUITE

This is the Maharaja Suite, which was used by the Maharajas of Jodhpur as their personal chamber. The hotel appears to be fully booked on the first and second of December, when Priyanka and Nick's wedding is scheduled to take place. 

 

A BATHROOM FIT FOR ROYALTY

This is the bathtub in the Maharani Suite. It's fitted with a bath tub that's been carved from a single block of pink marble. How incredible is that?
