Talk About Dress Rehearsal

When Jennifer Lopez shared that she and Ben Affleck got hitched, she also revealed she wore an “old movie wedding dress.” This promptly set the internet ablaze in a mad search for the referenced flick. And although that movie has yet to be named, these classic Jennifer Lopez wedding dresses from her films are arguably just as dreamy as the one she wore to marry Ben.
