Jenny McCarthy's Wedding Dress: See the Photos!

09/01/2014 at 10:24 AM ET

It was a big weekend for celebrity weddings: Ashlee Simpson, Gabrielle Union and Jenny McCarthy all tied the knot. But our favorite thing about these three big events? How different all of their dresses were. While Union went sleek and sexy and Simpson reportedly chose an elegant and bohemian look, McCarthy opted for over-the-top glamour for her St. Charles, Illinois wedding to Donnie Wahlberg.

McCarthy, 41, selected an Ines Di Santo dress from the bridal salon of NYC department store Bergdorf Goodman, where she was spotted shopping with Wahlberg in July. And surprisingly, she looked to have bent many of her pre-determined style rules for her big-day dress.

“White is a little too white. Ivory I think possibly, for my age,” she told PEOPLE in May. Her other rule: “No ballgowns!” The dress she ended up with was a super-romantic white strapless gown with a deep sweetheart neckline, a gathered bodice and a full skirt with large tulle floral details at her left hip. She complemented the romantic look with a long tulle veil, mega-glam sparkling drop earrings, a deep red lip and Veronica Lake-inspired waves. She carried dark red roses in her hands, which were accented with scarlet nails, a Rina Limor diamond bracelet and, of course, that enormous yellow sapphire engagement ring.

McCarthy and Wahlberg were wed at St. Charles’s Hotel Baker (a little fancier than the KFC McCarthy joked about) in front of guests including her former The View cohost Sherri Shepherd and Wahlberg’s New Kids on the Block bandmates.

What do you think of McCarthy’s wedding gown? Who had your favorite from the weekend?

Hate it. Too much material at the bust is making her look saggy. There is also nothing wrong in wearing a bra.

Stunning! Such a beautiful couple!

Not crazy about the dress at all but she looks very pretty. Best wishes.

White for the former playmate on her second wedding…really?

She looks beautiful but needs support.

It’s 2014 – why should there be any hard and fast rules about what you wear at your 2nd wedding, anyway? Or your 1st, for that matter? Life’s too short, wear what you want! If it makes you feel beautiful and you’re happy, then go for it. Live and let live.

Yeah, I think it looked saggy too. But overall she looked pretty. As for white at a second wedding, there’s nothing wrong with it! This is 2014, not 1950. Every bride wants to feel like this marriage is their first and last, even if it isn’t. And they shouldn’t be denied having a traditional color, rather than being reminded that it isn’t their first, like it was something shameful.

That dress did not fit on top and looks horrible! You have big boobs, Jenny, we get it – but you’re not 24 anymore. A little extra support goes a long way for gals our age!

I think she looks trashy!!!!

A strapless dress for boobs that aren’t as high as they used to be doesn’t do any woman any favors! The make-up is a bit harsh. Hope they are happy and this works out.
