Not so long after announcing their busy second engagement in April 2022, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are officially married. The 52-year-old superstar revealed the news in his newsletter, “On the JLO,” that they exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony. For the event, Lopez wore two distinct white dresses, the first an “old movie dress” as she wrote in the newsletter. Designed with a classic boatneck neckline and a boning bodice, the fitted number also features a textured, floor-grazing maxi skirt. She accessorized with a sparkling stud and a diamond tennis bracelet, and her hair was styled in half-up bouncy waves. “So with the best witnesses you can imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the small chapel and gave each other the ring we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” Lopez wrote. For her second wedding gown, the star chose a chic Zuhair Murad style from the spring 2023 bridal collection that included a stunning fishtail train. With its off-shoulder sweetheart neckline, long lace sleeves and corseted bodice, this bridal look is definitely feminine and alluring. Another embellishment of note: her matching lace-trimmed veil.
The couple’s long-running romance came full circle, as they were previously engaged but split in January 2004. As J. Lo says, “Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient. Just what we wanted.”
As we anxiously await photos from the event, let’s revisit some of J.Lo’s wedding dresses, both on and off.
