Watch J Lo’s Wedding Gown Transform Into a Thigh-High-Slit Halter Dress


At this point, we’ve seen Jennifer Lopez in a multitude of wedding dresses, from intricate gowns with floor-sweeping trains to a simple fit-and-flare for her Las Vegas ceremony with Ben Affleck. The Galia Lahav design she wears as Darcy in 2023’s “Shotgun Wedding,” however, is by far her most elaborate yet. Created in collaboration with costume designer Mitchell Travers and Lahav head designer Sharon Sever, the blush-toned gown was crafted from fine silk tulle. Travers told POPSUGAR he was sure to incorporate vintage-inspired details such as pouf sleeves, patinas of embroidered lace, and silk netting, since it’s written in the storyline that the dress was first worn by the mother of the groom (played by Jennifer Coolidge).

Throughout the action-packed film, Lopez collected blood stains and dirt on the dress while performing stunts – which is why a total of 30 dresses had to be produced. They were numbered 1-30, from the multi-layered voluminous ballgown to the leg-baring halter that Darcy rips in a later scene. “I researched a tremendous amount of bridal designers and found a house that could work with us to produce a gown that looked and felt like a wedding gown, but behaved like a superhero suit on set,” Travers said. “We only showed Jennifer the one dress that we charted an entire film’s progression through and luckily she gave me her blessing!”

While you’ll be impressed by how the Galia Lahav bridal gown transforms in the movie, just as stunning are the three Ralph Lauren looks Lopez sported for her second wedding to Affleck in Georgia; the ivory embroidered Zuhair Murad dress she wore in 2022’s “Marry Me”; and the plunging Valentino sheath she chose for her walk down the aisle to Cris Judd in 2001. We’ve rounded up Lopez’s on- and off-screen wedding dresses ahead, so scroll to see them all.
