Jennifer Lopez wore TWO dresses including one ‘from an old movie’ on wedding day with Ben Affleck


Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck flew to Nevada over the weekend to tie the knot in a Las Vegas ceremony.

And in her On the JLo newsletter the entertainer, 52, gushed that she wore a dress ‘from an old movie.’

It turns out the star actually wore two dresses for the big day, the second one being a lacy Zuhair Murad selection.

In addition to the matronly sleeveless dress from a former film she worked on, the fashionista sported something more glam.

Her designer frock boasted long sleeves with an off-the-shoulder detail and a sweetheart neckline. 

It had a corset bodice and a long train, along with a veil that featured lace trimming.

Meanwhile Jennifer noted that her new husband  wore a jacket from his own closet. 

She wrote in her newsletter: ‘So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives. 

‘They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last.’

The mom of two – who shares 14-year-old twins with ex husband Marc Anthony – beamed in photos shared with fans on Sunday.

Lopez received the star treatment from celebrity go-to hairstylist artist Chris Appleton.

He gave her a voluminous look of deep, luscious curls that fell over her chest in a chestnut color.

Ahead of her vows he asked the music artist how she was feeling, to which she replied, ‘I feel amazing. I’m so excited!’

She then gave some background on her dress as she explained, ‘I’ve had this dress for so many years and I was just saving and saving and saving it, and now I’m wearing it on my wedding day.’

The wedding comes nearly 20 years after the couple called off their engagement due to ‘excessive media attention.’

At the time, they had hired decoy brides to appear in various locations to dupe the paparazzi. 

This time around the pair slipped away with their kids for an intimate ceremony.

‘They both thought it was a fun and casual way to tie the knot,’ an insider told Us Weekly

After meeting on the set of the film Gigli in 2002, Jen and Ben struck up a romance and took on the collective name ‘Bennifer,’ bestowed upon them by fans.

Following a proposal complete with a six-carat pink diamond ring, the twosome planned a lavish September 2003 wedding in Santa Barbara.

However, just days before the date the duo announced that they planned to postpone the event.

Months later they ended their romance completely, with Lopez marrying Anthony the following year, and Affleck marrying Jennifer Garner shortly after.
