Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's love story is incredible. From their first meeting and engagement in 2002-2003, the tabloid frenzy and break up in 2004, through a long friendship and mutual support for over a decade, to rekindling their romance in 2021, Bennifer’s journey had been quite a ride.

Lopez once told People: 'I really felt like when I met Ben, 'Okay, this is it'. Maybe that was it, after all? One of the most famous couples in Hollywood waited for twenty years to get married, but they both look like the wait was well worth it.

The wedding(s)

Bennifer’s first ceremony took place in Las Vegas, where they stood in line for their licence with four other couples. The lovebirds said I Do just after midnight at A Little White Wedding Chapel, boasting a drive-through 'tunnel of love'.

But that was the mere warm-up act to a star-studded celebration in Affleck’s estate in Georgia. This was where J.Lo revealed not one, not two, but three wedding dresses by American designer Ralph Lauren.

Let’s have a close look at these mesmerising gowns.

Dress number One

The gown that took J.Lo down the aisle was a turtleneck column dress with a seriously dramatic ruffle hem, made using 500 meters of fabric, Grazia writes. The photo of the superstar singer gazing into the mirror, the train spread around her, is definitely one for the bedside table.

Ralph Lauren brand commented on Instagram:

Jennifer Lopez is a vision in her custom Ralph Lauren handkerchief gown, a subtle contrast between nostalgia and modernity. The bespoke silhouette applauds our artisans’ meticulous attention to detail, realised with more than 1,000 hand-cut handkerchiefs and 1,640 feet of fabric.

Dress number Two

Dress number two made an appearance after the ceremony and during the reception, which featured a cocktail hour, dinner, a dance party, and a fireworks display. This was not just a gown but an incredible work of art. It is adorned with thousands of pearls - and took 30 artisans 700 hours to hand-embroider with micro-pleats of silk tulle, tiny pearls and crystals from Swarovski.
