Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s first wedding canceled just before the ceremony

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s engagement was confirmed to be just a matter of time, although the certainty that this time the wedding would take place could not be had until the very end. After all, the first wedding ceremony was canceled just before it began. Although more than 400 guests were invited in time, including some of the biggest names in American show business — Matt Damon, Bruce Willis, Alec Baldwin, Colin Farrell and Matthew Perry, known for his role as Chandler in the TV series Friends. It is said that it was the scale of the event that frightened Ben Affleck, who was frightened that by marrying J.Lo for the rest of his life he would be surrounded by a whole lot of people, including, among others, her entourage. He feared that this would prevent them from forming a real relationship and at some point lead to its breakup. He wanted to be alone with Jen.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s Las Vegas wedding: ceremony details

Perhaps that’s why the couple opted for a much more intimate ceremony this time. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s wedding was held in secret, at an atmospheric white chapel in Las Vegas (Little White Wedding Chapel). And we learned the details of the event after the whole ceremony. In fact, they were revealed by Jennifer Lopez herself, who shared her impressions of the wedding with her fans and followers via a newsletter sent from her website OnTheJLo.com. Bennifer said the sacramental “I do” to each other on July 16, 2022, and just a day later the newsletter hit fans’ inboxes.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Good. And apparently it is also patient. It can be patient for up to 20 years,” it was more or less with these words that Jennifer Lopez began her message to her supporters.

The star also added that the Las Vegas wedding was exactly what both she and Ben wanted, and revealed some details from the event.

The singer also confessed that when she and Ben Affleck exchanged rings, which she stressed “they will wear for the rest of their lives,” she was wearing a dress “from an old movie.” What she meant, however, was rather that the dress was HOW from an old movie, as J.Lo opted for a lacy, semi-transparent wedding dress from the collection of Lebanese fashion designer Zuhair Murad. To then change into a much simpler model — most likely vintage (so she could have been an old dress from the movie set, but we haven’t solved that mystery yet). Ben Affleck, on the other hand, was dressed in a white tuxedo, which he already had in his closet, a white shirt with pleats and a black bow tie. So they both looked great.
