We’re well aware of your feelings on her bridal headpiece, but Anne Hathaway‘s wedding gown was quite a dream. And, surprise — it was partially pink!

The custom Valentino creation — worn for the star’s nuptials to Adam Shulman in Big Sur, Calif., last Saturday — was imagined by the designer himself, and made by seamstresses in the brand’s couture atelier in Rome.

According to a rep for Valentino, the design team created a strapless ivory silk point d’esprit tulle dress, which includes a pink hand-painted shaded train embroidered with satin flowers. The 1920s-inspired veil consists of a lace ribbon with a large flower, adorned with small crystal beads.

“The wedding was lovely and Anne looked gorgeous,” a source tells PEOPLE, adding that the bride skipped jewelry and let the gown and veil take center stage. “She looked very pretty.” Tell us: Now that you know more about the gown, do you love it?

Why on earth would Anne Hathaway care what people think about her wedding dress or headpiece? Lol. This is HER wedding, not anybody else. With that being said, her dress is a visionary masterpiece.

No wedding dress is pretty enough to distract from her Joker-like big mouth.

This has to be one of the most beautiful wedding gowns I’ve seen in years. It’s hard to see details from the pictures available so far, but there is lovely, creative design instead of another strapless, skintight dress. The hint of pink is a subtle surprise. Enchanting!

Maybe it’s just me but I thought she looked beautiful. From what we can see anyway. :)

I think her gown is beautiful but I simply can’t get past the headpiece. I’m sure some love it, but for me I find it quite distracting; it takes away from the dress.

She looked breathtaking, so ethereal. it’s her day, her dream, her vision. why be so negative?

I absolutely agree with Jane. And there’s nothing at all wrong with the headpiece. It suits her and the gown.

Gorgeous!! I love Valentino – wish I could afford that type of gown. The picture of Anne and her hubby doesn’t look great but the sketch is divine! I hope we can see a better picture of the bride (and groom!). I love the pink – and so did Gwen Stefani!
