Lopez, 53, turned to Ralph Lauren for her three impeccable wedding dresses as well as her golden rehearsal evening gown which features a plunging, halter neckline and her post-wedding-brunch dress which features an allover stripe print and a high side slit.
The ruffled handkerchief dress she wore down the aisle was a reimagining of a turtleneck sheath, according to a press release from the brand. With over 1,000 handkerchiefs and 500 yards of fabric, the ruffled cap sleeves and voluminous ruffled train were meant to evoke the fashion house’s romantic sensibility. The mermaid-style silhouette was completed with an open back and a 20-foot sheer veil that started at the top of her head and showed off her slicked-back bun, making her look better.

Lopez then donned a second dress which was completed by 30 artisans in 700 hours and essentially saw it dripping with pearls and Swarovski crystals, all of which were strung on micro-pleated silk tulle fabric and finished with the same earrings and a pair of Jimmy Choo Maisel sandals.
Lopez’s latest Ralph Lauren look also took on a mermaid shape and spoke about her brand of sporty glamor with its sheer organza hood and keyhole neckline, adorned with Swarovski crystals around the trim. For this moment, Lopez accessorized with $2 million, 27-carat, pear-shaped marquise earrings from Samer Halimeh. During her wedding day, she wore jewelry from Mikimoto as well as the aforementioned South Sea cultured pearl and diamond earrings, a floral pearl and diamond ring, and pearl and diamond stud earrings.
Affleck, 50, wore a classic Ralph Lauren tuxedo consisting of a cream evening jacket over a crisp white bib shirt with a button-down to match Lopez’s intricate sparkling green bouquet. Her look was completed with black pleated pants and patent leather loafers, accented with a black bow tie.
