Jennifer Lopez wore three dresses for the big day, which drew “inspiration from archival Ralph Lauren pieces,” as the designer noted on Instagram. But, of course, her “cascading” wedding dress (via Vogue) was the standout moment. The skirt consisted of 1,000 handkerchiefs attached by hand, made from 500 meters of fabric. The ruffles were also draped from the neck to the shoulders, creating a spin on the “classic turtleneck column” design of the dress, complete with a long, sheer veil.
As Ralph Lauren noted on Instagram, the ruffled handkerchiefs were made to be “a nostalgic keepsake and a modern heirloom” for the bride and her family. Aside from the train and the neck, the ruffles were also added to the sleeves to transform the dress into “a statement in craftsmanship and dignified design,” the designer wrote. Ben Affleck wore a couture white tux jacket, black trousers, and a black bow tie by the designer.
