Visions of Jennifer Lopez in a wedding dress have been dancing in our heads ever since the superstar announced her engagement to Alex Rodriguez. Those dreams came true this week, though not entirely in the way we expected. Although fans lining the sidewalks of New York City may have gotten their hopes up, the 50-year-old talent was wrapped up in an over-the-top gown for a different purpose: to film her new flick Marry Me. Regardless, the lavish photos are more than enough eye candy to hold us over until JLo’s actual big day and recall to mind the wedding of another Latina icon!
Princess JLo! Jennifer Lopez donned an extravagant wedding dress for her movie Marry Me
Not only did the triple threat look like a royal wedding bride as she waltzed through the evening, but like fellow Latina powerhouse Sofia Vergara. JLo graced the film’s Atelier Condo Building shooting location in Hell’s Kitchen donning a poofy princess ball gown by Zuhair Murad, the same designer that the Colombian Modern Family star rocked during her nuptials with Joe Manganiello.

Adorned with ornate beading and an extravagant train, Jenny’s design was eye-catching beyond belief. Her character accessorized with equally glamorous jewels, a fur shawl and, of course, an elaborate veil. Though in traditional white, the whole ensemble exuded a silver-drenched periwinkle hue. As the production filmed late into the night, the star needed assistance moving around in the massive gown and abided the chilly weather with a fur jacket.
Jennifer has been shooting the new romantic comedy in New York City this month with co-stars Owen Wilson and Maluma. The Baila Conmigo singer portrays a pop star who is ditched by her rock star boyfriend (Maluma) before their wedding at Madison Square Garden, so she marries a random member of the crowd (Owen Wilson) instead.
