Actress-singer Jennifer Lopez’s wedding dress in the upcoming movie ‘Marry Me’ weighed more than 43 kg and she needed an ‘entourage’ of people to help her get dressed.

Costume designer Caroline Duncan revealed to Variety, “The dress weighed 95 pounds and it took five people to transport it and an entourage to get Jennifer in and out, but it gave the dress that volume.”

The dress is deliberately designed so heavily that it is meant to represent the impending burden of Kat (played by Jennifer Lopez) who marries Bastian, whom they eventually discover infidelity before exchanging their vows, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

Jennifer Lopez’s wedding dress designer Caroline explained: “First you see her getting in the car, and it’s a symbol of how that wedding had gotten too big, and it wasn’t fair and took over her ability to see who she married.

‘Later you see her alone in the bedroom on what should have been her wedding night, and here she is trapped in this claustrophobic dress that makes the concert look bigger than she is. It’s the loneliest shot in the movie.”

While Kat’s wardrobe includes a number of designer pieces that Caroline has bought from Net-a-Porter, Versace, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman, the costume designer also dressed Jennifer in more affordable streetwear so her character could feel “ambitious.”

She said: “Some things weren’t incredibly expensive. When Bastian shows up at Charlie’s school, Kat (Jennifer Lopez)’s outfit is from Naked Wardrobe. We weren’t afraid to mix higher and lower brands because we wanted her to feel ambitious.”
