White dresses look good on Jennifer Lopez.
The superstar married Ben Affleck in Las Vegas on July 16, 2022, wearing two different wedding dresses for the lucky occasion, including one she described as “from an old movie.”
While it’s not known which movie she was referring to, the singer-slash actress has said “I do” in a notable number of films over the years, from 2001’s “The Wedding Planner” to 2022’s “Marry Me.” And for these on-screen weddings, she’s sported bridal looks ranging from a simple ivory sheath to embellished couture.
Lopez has also walked down the aisle four times in real life; Before marrying Affleck, she was married to Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014, to Cris Judd from 2001 to 2004, and to Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998.
Here’s a look back at every wedding dress J.Lo has worn, both for her real-life weddings and in the movies.
Wedding with Ben Affleck (2022)
To marry her former “Gigli” co-star in Sin City, Lopez wore a duo of dresses, including an off-the-shoulder lace gown from Zuhair Murad’s bridal collection featuring long sleeves, a corseted bodice and a fishtail train. She paired the look with a traditional lace-trimmed veil, a bridal bouquet — and, of course, her eye-catching green diamond engagement ring.
Confirming the wedding in her On The JLo newsletter, the “Waiting for Tonight” hitmaker also shared photos and videos of herself in a sleeveless floral jacquard Alexander McQueen design.
“I’ve had this dress for so many years, and I’ve just kept it, kept it, kept it, and now I’m wearing it on my wedding day,” she gushed from her second glance.
“Shooting Rifle Wedding” (2022)
Lopez stars opposite Josh Duhamel in this upcoming movie in which, according to IMDb, “a couple’s extravagant destination wedding is hijacked by criminals.”
Judging by the set photos the film’s lead actress shared on social media, she seems to spend much of the film in this corset wedding dress with a tiered skirt, which gets more and more frayed as the plot progresses.
“Marry Me” (2022)
As music superstar Kat Valdez, J.Lo wears this spectacular Zuhair Murad Couture creation covered in metallic embroidery and embellishments to marry beau Bastian (Maluma) in front of thousands of fans. But when she discovers he’s cheating on her, she decides to say “I do” instead to a random audience member (Owen Wilson).
“The dress weighed 95 pounds and took five people to transport it and an entourage to get Jennifer in and out, but it gave the dress that volume,” costume designer Caroline Duncan told Variety, adding that the “extremely heavy” dress is meant to serve as a visual metaphor for the character’s oversized, overly public wedding.
“El Cantante” (2006)
Filmed just a few years after Lopez and co-star Marc Anthony actually got married, this biopic is based on the life of the late salsa singer Héctor Lavoe. As the bride of Lavoe, Puchi, J.Lo wore this imperial-waisted lace gown with a flowing veil.
“Monster Clean” (2005)
The “Let’s Get Loud” crooner and Jane Fonda (in the title role) clash in this rom-com, in which Lopez wears an ivory SaeYoung Vu Couture dress and gloves fit for a princess. (Not to be outdone, Fonda’s character appears in a white dress of her own.)
Wedding with Marc Anthony (2004)
Lopez exchanged her vows with Anthony in the backyard of her Beverly Hills home, wearing a strapless Vera Wang gown, Neil Lane jewelry, and a romantic fringed veil.
Slim’s (Lopez) marriage to the abusive Mitch (Billy Campbell) in this early thriller may have been far from a fairy tale, but with his beaded spaghetti straps and embellished veil, her character’s bridal look was undeniably beautiful.
Wedding with Cris Judd (2001)
Lopez married dancer/choreographer Cris Judd in a beautiful Valentino floral lace dress with sheer embellished sleeves.
“The Wedding Planner” (2001)
In one of J.Lo’s best-loved rom-coms, her character, wedding planner Mary Fiore, prepares to say “I do” to Justin Chambers’s Massimo in a vintage-style boat-neck dress and pillbox with polka-dotted veil. (She eventually ends up with the right man, Matthew McConaughey’s dented doctor Steve).
When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in 2018 in a similar Givenchy design, comparisons between the two dresses flooded social media.
“I got a lot of text messages about Meghan Markle’s wedding dress,” costume designer Pam Chilton told Glamour. “I’m like, ‘Well, I’m sure it’s a coincidence.’ But she was in good rom-com age when the movie came out – she could have watched it during sleepovers!’
Wedding with Ojani Noa (1997)
To marry her first husband, actor Ojani Noa, Lopez wore a sleek, sleeveless white lace dress and styled her hair in a high bun decorated with flowers.
