Jennifer Lopez waited just two days after her and Ben Affleck's big Georgia wedding weekend ended to show her own personal photos from their second ceremony and her gorgeous three(!) Ralph Lauren wedding dresses.
Lopez teased the images on her Instagram first, sharing an up-close photo of her face veiled from her nuptials. It offered the greatest detail yet of her bridal beauty look. “First peek at my wedding looks at OnTheJLo.com,” she teased.
Her newsletter later shared a little more detail, along with sketches and photos. “The dresses were dreamy... thank you Ralph Lauren 🤍,” she wrote. “I will be sharing a few more pics and delicious details on our big day coming very soon On The JLo...”
Ralph Lauren also released details on each gown, writing in a press release on Lopez’s wedding looks:
“Dress 1: The handkerchief wedding gown reimagines a turtleneck column dress with the addition of a dramatic ruffle hem. Over 1000 hand-cut handkerchiefs and 500 meters of fabric were cut into ruffles and attached by hand, creating a voluminous, romantic skirt. The intricately constructed sleeve is inset with a cascading ruffle, draped from the back of the turtleneck to the shoulder to create a romantic, heritage-inspired sensibility.”
“Dress 2: The chandelier pearl gown is adorned with thousands of cascading strings of pearls. 30 artisans worked across 700 hours to hand embroider the gown with micro-pleats of silk tulle, tiny pearl embellishments, and Swarovski crystal.”
“Dress 3: The custom gown features a sleek mermaid silhouette with a keyhole neckline embellished with Swarovski crystals of varying shapes and shades of white and is completed with a full skirt and topped with an organza overlay.”
Ahead of Lopez's newsletter release, paparazzi captured aerial shots of Lopez in her mermaid-silhouette gown with its long train. Page Six reported that Lopez wore a custom Ralph Lauren dress for the ceremony. Guests were also asked to wear all white to the wedding.
She believed the nuptials with close friends and family were “perfect. It was a dream for her,” the source said. “She loved having all the kids there. She loved the location. It all felt very special.”
Generally, Lopez “feels extremely happy being married to Ben. She keeps saying 'my husband' and it's very cute,” the source said.
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Lopez and Affleck were “so gracious all weekend. They have been wonderful towards all the staff helping with the event, from the limo shuttle service company and beyond. You can tell how in love they are and how comfortable they are with each other. They can't wait to continue to celebrate all weekend long with the people they love the most.”
