Eva Amurri's Wedding Gown: All the Details!

When Eva Amurri began planning her Charleston wedding to Kyle Martino, the pieces all fell effortlessly into place — every piece but her dress, that is.

She tried on numerous white gowns, but “they didn’t feel like me,” she told PEOPLE in September. “I just felt like my head was stuck on a different girl’s body.” But after some tireless Internet searching, Amurri believed she’d finally found her dream dress. “I just fell in love with it,” she said.

The bride asked designer Lela Rose to create a breathtaking look for her big day, using the satin-faced silk “The Woods” gown with three-dimensional lace yolk and low back as her base. For a personal touch, Amurri and Martino’s wedding date was embroidered in the lining in pale blue, for the bride’s ‘something blue.’

Amurri commissioned Rose to make mom Susan Sarandon’s mother-of-the-bride dress, too; she produced a silk faille sheath that also featured a three-dimensional lace neckline. “Eva loved the idea of them sharing a design detail,” Rose tells PEOPLE. “The three-dimensional lace seemed so fitting for both and gave a nod to their close relationship.”

Though all eyes were on the bride — who paired her dress with kitten heels she found online for $80 — the groom had his own dapper getup, as well. “Kyle’s tux is gorgeous,” Amurri adds. “Brioni made it especially for him.”

But nothing could compare to seeing Amurri walk down the aisle in her custom gown. “Working with Eva and Susan was an honor. I was well aware of their talent and beauty but their incredible graciousness made the experience one I will not soon forget,” Rose shares. “And when Eva put on the gown, of course she was stunning but you could immediately see how comfortable she was. She felt like the most beautiful version of her everyday self. Once we made a few tweaks, the gown was undeniably her.”

“I love my wedding dress,” adds Amurri. “It was just perfect for me, and already feels like it would be hanging in my closet. I loved it from the moment I tried it on.”

I’m so glad to finally see someone who is not in a strapless gown!! She looks beautiful and it sounds like she is not over the top like that ridiculous SHAM Kardashian wedding! I think the fact that she wanted part of her Mom’s dress to be similar to hers is lovely.

And to JANET this is still America and FREE SPEECH is still live and well no thanks to narrow minded asses like you!

The bride and the dress are stunning. Love the dress!

From what I can tell, the bridesmaids wore the same fabric as Susan Sarandon while Susan shared the lace detailing with her daughter. I think that’s lovely and I am so glad they are so close to enjoy that.

The back of Eva’s dress is a deep plunging V of the same beautiful lace covering her shoulders and decolletage. It really is a wonderful look.

Nice tasteful dresses and they are very flattering to them. Sorry to notice but while Susan Sarandon’s face looks “great”… her neck and arms definitely show her age.

i agree with the person who stated… that Eva and hubby should be on the cover…and it is sweet that mother and daughter complement each other… just do not get it…when people are full of hatred … they have issues

Gorgeous, both of them, simply beautiful! She looks so much like her Mom!

My, what a beautiful bride she is! I’ll bet her mother is so proud.

Best wishes to you, Eva Amurri!

It was clearly stated in the article that EVA wanted her mothers dress to look like her’s because of their close relationship. For that reason it is not tacky at all. What the bride wants the bride gets! I think Eva looks absolutely stunning, one of the more beautiful brides I’ve ever seen. Nothing was overdone and she is just radiant. The dress is simple and beautiful. KK could learn a few things from Eve.

I LOVE Susan’s dress!!! Great colour on her and I think that’s a wonderful idea to have a similar design feature in both of their dresses. Lookin’ good, ladies!
