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.

Tacky for a wedding. I was hoping just once she would conduct herself with more modesty. Plus her in white is a joke right there. Donnie seems like a nice fellow. I feel so bad for him. She is only marrying him for his money and security. He deserves better.

I agree with what everyone is saying about the sagging. But in a strapless, can you hold ’em up high?Or do you need a shoulder dress for that? To me she looked like every other bride

She would have been better off sticking with her original plan. Pale peach or pink would have been better on her, and the strapless look seems so overused now. In her case those boobs are headed downhill.

Too bad the photos were not officially released and that someone had to sneak in to take them and People Magazine felt they had to publish them without the consent of the happily married couple. I thought you guys were about integrity and not about buying to the first loser to sneak in and sell photos.

Carolyn, when you say the strapless look is so overused, you’re not kidding. It’s been done to death. Like 15 years now. We need at least shoulders on a dress. Why does every bride want to look like a million others?

White? Really???

Totally inappropriate and tacky for a second marriage. Looks like she is overflowing out of the top. TACKY.

Tiff on

Her boobs don’t look right in this dress.

Complaining about her saggy boobs? Really? Try not being jealous of a beautiful woman marrying your teenage heartthrob.
