After finally reuniting as Bennifer, it was only right for Jennifer Lopez to host the wedding of her dreams to Ben Affleck. On Saturday, August 20, 2022, the duo tied the knot, again, in a star-studded second wedding celebration in Georgia.

This not only marks the second time down the aisle for the couple— who said "I do" in Las Vegas back in July—but also marks a second time Lopez chose designer white gowns to become Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck. And while her Vegas looks were flawless, we must admit, they don't compare to the three custom Ralph Lauren Collection ensembles she wore for her grand affair. "The dresses were dreamy... thank you Ralph Lauren," shared the actress in her On the JLo newsletter, and "dreamy" they were. 

Her first look was a turtleneck mermaid gown featuring a voluminous ruffled skirt and flutter sleeves. According to Vogue, more than 1,000 handkerchiefs and 500 meters of fabric were used to construct the dress.

Lopez then switched into a sleek column gown that featured strings of pearls and Swarovski crystal embellishments—which took over 700 hours and 30 artistians to make, as reported by People.

For her final look, JLo ended the evening in a mermaid gown featuring a keyhole neckline, embellished with Swarovski crystals and a removable hood.
