What Lopez is wearing for the ceremony?

Reports have said that for the wedding that will take place in Riceboro, Georgia, the 53-year-old singer will don Ralph Lauren’s custom couture. Though no other details regarding the gown have been out yet, it has been speculated that the dress “may include a sentimental ode to her and Affleck's decades-spanning romance,” Harper's Bazaar reported.

This impression emerged from their last wedding in Las Vegas, where Lopez instead of going for something new, chose the white dress she wore during her appearance on the poster of ‘Jersey Girl’. The 2004 movie also starred her new husband, Affleck. Alexander McQueen was its designer that completed the ensemble with textured floral jacquard fabric and a jewel neckline.

In her newsletter, the ‘On The Floor’ songstress said, “I've had this dress for so many years, and I've just been saving it, saving it, saving it, and now I'm wearing it on my wedding day.”

Life coach of Indian descent, Jay Shetty, has reportedly been given the opportunity to officiate Lopez and Affleck’s wedding. Reportedly, the ‘Marry Me’ actress knew Shetty since last year after doing an episode of ‘Coach Conversations,’ with him. She also had an appearance on the 34-year-old’s ‘On Purpose’ podcast in March 2021, where she claimed, “Everything I do, I want it to have a purpose to it. I want to remind people to own their power. Be your best self at every moment, even when the cameras are not on.”
