Jennifer Lopez is breaking down her wedding look from her nuptials with Ben Affleck.

The This Is Me…Now: A Love Story star, 54, shared her vision behind her wedding dress, as well as more specific details about the gown, while discussing her iconic looks over the past two decades in a new video with Vogue.

In the video, the singer flipped to a photo of herself posing in the dress, which was a version of Ralph Lauren's classic turtleneck column dress that featured a thousand handkerchiefs sewn in to create a voluminous ruffle skirt. In the photo, her cathedral-length veil for the ceremony could also be seen.

“This is Ralph Lauren. This is my wedding day,” she said.

"We got married down in Savannah, and I wanted it to be traditionally Latin, but also be kind of Southern Belle-ish at times," Lopez added of the look.

She noted that she thought the dress had “a mix of that” and that the stylists “certainly accomplished” her vision for the dress. However, while the dress looked beautiful, it was also tough to maneuver in.

"It had a long train that was so hard to walk in. It was so heavy," Lopez recalled.

She explained that the designer made her three dresses for the wedding: a ceremony dress, a reception dress and a dress for her to perform in at the reception.

The actress shared details about her reception looks in an interview with Vogue in August, 2022, revealing that her second dress for the ceremony was a chandelier pearl gown with an open-back design. It featured micro-pleats of silk tulle, pearl embellishments and Swarovski crystal detailing throughout the entirety of the dress.

A third custom-made gown featured a mermaid silhouette and keyhole neckline with a removable hood. She said of the looks in the video, “They were all very classic, but very different and beautiful.”

The wedding looks were for Lopez and Affleck’s, 51, wedding ceremony at their home in Riceboro, Georgia, on the Hampton Island preserve outside of Savannah, which was held after a week of festivities with their family and friends.

That ceremony took place a month after the couple traded vows in an intimate Las Vegas wedding. The Mother actress said she wore a "dress from an old movie” for that event, prompting fans to believe that it was the same wedding dress she wore in 2004's Jersey Girl.

Earlier this month, she finally set the record straight about the dress, saying in a video interview with Variety, "No, that's not true. I wish it was. I wish I did have that dress. I don't have that dress. No, this was a different dress that I had."

Lopez explained that she had different wedding dresses at home after working on Marry Me and Shotgun Wedding, and had used one of those instead.

"... So I had all these wedding dresses in my house. And when we, at the spur of the moment, decided to get married that day, I just had a dress," she said. "It's not from a movie. I never wore it in a movie."
