Jennifer Lopez's Wedding Gown in 'Marry Me' Weighed Almost 100 Pounds!

Caroline revealed that the Zuhair Murad bridal gown actually weighed 95 lbs, and required a team of five people to help Jennifer into the dress.

The dress consists of nine layers of silk taffeta, horsehair, and tulle, and due to crystals, ruffles, silver, and lace embroidery, the gown was “extremely heavy.”

“The dress weighed 95 pounds and required five people to transport it and an entourage to get Jennifer in and out of it, but it gave the dress that volume,” Caroline shared with Variety.

There’s a reason the dress weighed so heavy, as Caroline explained that the physical weight of the gown is meant to represent the impending burden of marrying Bastian.

“First, you see her get into the car, and it’s a symbol of how that wedding had gotten too big, and it wasn’t honest and has taken over her ability to see who she was marrying,” she shared. “Later, you see her in the bedroom alone on what should have been her wedding night, and here she is trapped in this claustrophobic dress that’s like the concert — bigger than she is. It’s the loneliest shot in the movie.”

Marry Me is out in theaters now.
