PHOTO: See Alexa Vega's Beachy Wedding Look

01/06/2014 at 03:30 PM ET

“Low-maintenance” is a phrase that doesn’t apply to many brides, but Alexa Vega may be the exception: the actress’s wedding look was the epitome of understated and laid-back, perfect for her oceanside affair.

No pink. No tulle. No dramatic details. Instead, Vega selected a simple ivory satin halter gown for her Saturday nuptials to Big Time Rush singer Carlos Pena, Jr. in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

She also bucked tradition by skipping the veil for a crown of white flowers on top of her center-parted waves, which was a perfect romantic touch for her beach ceremony. Actress Challen Cates shared a number of photos of the beautiful wedding on Instagram, captioning the below shot, “Most fun wedding ever! Congratulations @TheCarlosPena & @alexavega #live #love #carlexa #wedding”

It looks like a silky nightgown.

@Aria you’re right, it kinda does look like a nightgown, but it doesn’t really matter. She is just so gorgeous and could pull off anything!

It seems the tradition lately is to dress very casual and laid back for your wedding. I think for the setting, it’s pretty appropriate. They’re a beautiful couple. Congrats to Alexa and Carlos!

Sarah on

I love that even tho she’s young she opted for a simple wedding dress for her second wedding. Congrats to them!!

That’s the way to do it. Intimate, comfortable and surrounded with love and ambiance. Wish I did this!

Ann on

Well she is only 25 and already on her 2nd marriage so she probably wanted to go more simple the 2nd time around. I wonder how long will this union last?

Mrs. Winkler on

I am sure we will be hearing next in the news “surprise, we are having a baby!!” or something along those lines! Doesn’t surprise me at all lately, the celebrities seem to be in a baby boom. They will make a beautiful baby though, She IS pretty but 2nd marriage???? I hope she has found true love this time.

Have no idea who this girl is or who she married is and the article doesn’t say. Very poor reporting and I don’t care enough to google them. I clicked on this wondering who she is but again writer of article can’t even say.

Sandra McKinney on

Her dress is beautiful, and I love how comfortable and soft it looks. Congratulations and best of luck to you too!
