See Ashlee Simpson's Wedding Dress (and Her Afterparty Outfit Sketch - She Wore Pants!) Plus, Jessica Simpson's Matron of Honor Look (PHOTOS)

09/03/2014 at 01:09 PM ET

It was toddlers and tiaras on Ashlee Simpson‘s wedding day! The bride was accompanied by son Bronx, 5, as she walked down the aisle to new groom Evan Ross, while a similarly sparkly-tressed Jessica, 33, played matron of honor while daughter Maxwell, 2, and Ace, 1, served as flower girl and ring bearer. And both sisters were radiant in pristine white gowns as they waited for a sudden rain shower to pass during Ashlee’s Sunday nuptials.

Ashlee selected a long-sleeve lace crop top to go with her full lace skirt, both by Houghton Bride. She wore her ombré hair loose and wavy, accented with a super-romantic headband consisting of twisted chains and golden laurels, though she kept other jewelry to a minimum (though of course, her engagement ring was statement-making enough). And though no bride ever wants rain on her wedding day, the soggy ground gave Simpson an excuse to show off her shoes: A funky bohemian pair of sandals with gold leaf detail around the straps.

Even more surprising than the fact that Ashlee wore Houghton Bride’s pearl-embellished Aligote crop top over a Madonna bralet and lace Macabeau skirt with a high/low hemline (along with a lace-trimmed, scallop-edged veil)? The fact that she changed into a crop top pant suit for the reception. The outfit, also by Houghton Bride designer Katharine Polk, featured a three-quarter sleeve ivory top with wide-legged matching pants.

All of the bridesmaids echoed Ashlee’s elegant, bohemian look, each wearing her own white gown with loose, wavy, jewel-adorned tresses. Jessica sported a lace-trimmed slinky white column dress and a Neil Lane tiara (worn upside down!) in her long blonde locks. And Lane gave us the scoop on the nearly 200-year-old bauble: “Jessica had considered wearing a diamond hair piece on her own wedding day and she adored this tiara at the time. She got the opportunity to wear it in Ashlee’s wedding! All good things come full circle, and I heard she was thrilled. With her blond hair and white tulle gown, it was the perfect delicate accessory with an elegant and subtle sparkle.”

The feel echoed Jessica’s own “ethereal” bridesmaids vibe from her wedding earlier this summer, with each girl wearing a true-to-her-own-style gown and messy-romantic dos. But the overall effect was definitively Ashlee — right down to the oh-so-stylish white-tux-clad groomsmen.

Do you love the vibe? Do you like the idea that each girl picks out her own dress? Tell us in the comments!

I love the picture with Ashley…she looks pretty. But what a horrible, grumpy look Jessica has…. Also she looks like a bride herself!

How am I supposed to look at her supposed crop top when the only photo has her holding the skirt over her abdomen? What I can see looks great, I’d just love to see the promised details. Jessica looks like she got caught out in that rain shower.

I love the vibe. And Jessica looks pregnant again to me.

Beck on

Is it just me or does Jessica look to be sporting a small baby bump?

The words “wedding” and “crop-top” should never, ever be featured in the same sentence.

Ashlee’s look is a lot better than I was expecting when I first read she wore a crop top and skirt instead of a gown. It’s still quite bridal, if not in the traditional sense. Good for her.

It may be the angle, but Jessica looks pregnant! I’m not a fan of the messy look either of them have, Jessica’s dress looks like a bridal dress and they both look grumpy..

They both should have done something with their hair, at least run a brush though it and YES, Jessica does look like she is growing another tiny human in her belly!

Marisa on

Hair on both is horrible. Jessica normally looks awesome. Same ole on Ashley. Stringy, unkept look is not pretty.

Tommie on

Who is the bride? Why would Jessica wear white?
