The pre-wedding ceremonies, including the haldi, sangeet and mehendi, will take place at the Mehrangarh Fort.
"The couple has booked the fort from November 29 to December 1. It will be closed for tourists on these three days," DNA quoted a source.
Buzz is that Priyanka, her mom and her brother, along with Nick and his immediate family will be boarding a chopper from Jodhpur airport to the Umaid Bhawan Palace to avoid paparazzi.
Priyanka-Nick Spend A Bomb
The Taj Umaid Bhavan Palace Has 64 luxurious rooms and suites.
