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.

Her cups runneth over!

@Get A Life – I wasn’t even born when he was in his prime so to call him a teenage heartthrob is inaccurate. Some can be rude talking about her but not all are! I personally think she could have done straps to have herself look more fitted. Her dress can’t handle her top heavy.

The dress is very ill fitting. Her breast are sagging and the amount of cleavage way too much. The hair color and extensions plus the heavy make-up…just not flattering. Jenny is in her 40’s and this look just is not flattering. She would have looked great in something less stark and more age appropriate. She looks like she is trying way too hard to stay young.

She definitely needed more support in the bust. I am surprised as the dress choice. It looks a little fussy for her. Shame on whoever dressed/styled her for not pointing out the sagging.
I wish her the best, especially since his brothers dont seem to support the union.

Cindy on

She looks beautiful. I hope they are super happy!

Oh my. She needs a little more support up top. You want to flaunt them, you have to support them!

Can you look glamorous with that much boob hanging out?

I found it gratifying to read that many in his family did not attend because they don’t like Jenny.

At least someone in that family has a brain.

Apparently she bought the dress without ever looking in a mirror. Those puppies are about to run loose any minute. There surely were dresses that would have been way more flattering on her but she chose the least flattering option instead
