There’s only one Jonas wedding that anybody’s been talking about this past year, but now that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have tied the knot, it’s old news. Thank u, next. Now, it's time to turn our attention to JoBro Nuptials No. 2, with Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and fiancé Joe Jonas still going strong in their engagement.
The couple, who first began dating in November 2016 after meeting through mutual friends, revealed that Jonas had popped the question less than a year later in October 2017. There’s been an endless stream of adorable PDA moments since, but the pair haven’t revealed even the slightest detail about their wedding plans—until now.
Just hours after the Chopra-Jonas wedding finished up in India, a Turner-Jonas wedding guest accidentally leaked the first real info about plans for their big day, after sharing a glimpse of their Save The Date favor online. Mike Bayer, Sophie’s life coach, showed off a calligraphy-adorned wooden box containing some important info, so here’s everything we know so far about the wedding.
When will Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas get married?
Well, it looks like a summer wedding is in store for these lovebirds. Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Joe finally spilled some deets on what's to come for the two, nuptial-wise. "We’re getting married this year. We’re going to have a summer wedding," Jonas shared. So uh, summer officially starts on June 21, and goes until September 23, 2019. So that gives us a season, at least!
Oh, and they have plans for the event, including games. Who doesn't love games? Especially the ones Jonas and Turner have planned, which sound... rough. "I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be a lot of fun," he shared, "We’re going to have a flag rugby game at the wedding, and a flag football game. So if all the groomsmen show up with black eyes and broken arms, I’ll be very proud." Those will be wedding pictures to remember.
These are the first details about the nuptials since the leaking of the Save the Dates from Nick and Priyanka's wedding in November.
The now-deleted video (whoops), posted by Bayer and spotted by Us Weekly, clearly shows the words ‘Sophie and Joe 2019’ engraved elegantly into the wooden lid. It also includes one more important detail alongside the date, which leads us onto…
Where will Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas get married?
Expect romantic scenes, excellent cheese selections, a groom in a beret and maybe even a reception at the Eiffel Tower, if they're feeling really extra. According to the Save The Date invitation, the couple have chosen France for a picturesque, destination wedding.
Fans have guessed that, judging by the size of the wooden box, it may have also contained a bottle of wine which would be perfectly fitting for the French theme.
Who's expected to attend?
Although nothing about the guest list has been officially confirmed yet, it’s easy enough to anticipate a few key celebrity names that are sure to make an appearance at the wedding of Sophie and Joe. Of course, each of the Jonas Brothers will be in the groom’s party and, after Sophie was so prevalent in Priyanka’s bachelorette celebrations, the Quantico actress is guaranteed to feature in the bridal squad.
Then, there’s the Game of Thrones cast, who are all known to be close friends even now that filming for the show has wrapped. Sophie attended the wedding of Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie earlier this year so the favor will surely be returned, and it’s already rumored that Maisie Williams has made the cut as bridesmaid to her on-screen sister and real life BFF.
What style of wedding will they choose?
Interestingly, the Game of Thrones bride-to-be has made it clear that she and Joe, known for their laid back attitude and fun-loving relationship, won't be throwing a wedding like Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. Rather than following in their OTT, lavish, and luxury footsteps, she and Joe are planning something much more lowkey. While it will almost certainly be star-studded, you can still expect a wedding that's much more down to earth and away from the spotlight.
Speaking to Harper's Bazaar, Sophie revealed: "We're trying to keep it as low-key as possible so it's more of an intimate thing," she said.
What can guests expect?
Well, according to the groom, one big party. Asked in an interview on the Zach Sang Show, Joe admitted that his one requirement for the wedding to the love of his life is... beer. And a lot of it.
“I mean, we are getting married in France, so a lot of Coors Light is necessary,” the singer joked (half-joked). “Not hard, really, to get that, but we needed to make sure that was going to happen,” Jonas said.
Joe's rather short To Do list is actually the result of a major lesson learned from the wedding of his brother Nick Jonas to Priyanka Chopra. As Nick explained: “We learned a lesson from my wedding. Our friends drink a lot of beer, specifically, and we ran out of beer at the wedding, at my wedding, which was a big issue.”
And, according to sensible Kevin, disaster is inevitable if that happens. “It starts to get very dark very fast with hard alcohol instead,” he added. “It’s just like ‘Oh, we’re doing this now? Okay.’ “
These Jonas brothers really know how to throw a wedding, huh?
