Article updated on 19/07/22: Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck Planning Extravagant Wedding Party

Days after news surfaced that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck tied the knot in an intimate Las Vegas ceremony at Little White Wedding Chapel, it was reported that the newlyweds were planning an extravagant wedding party.

According to People, the couple 'plan on having a bigger party so they can celebrate with family and friends'.

A source also told the news outlet: 'They don't have a honeymoon planned yet. Jennifer says that every day with Ben is a honeymoon.'

They added: 'Ever since they started dating again, Jennifer has truly believed that this is it. She is looking forward to growing old with Ben.

'She is very happy and content with Ben. She couldn't ask for anything else. She thinks it's all perfect.'

Similarly, TMZ reported that Lopez and Affleck will celebrate their vows at the latter's $9million estate in Georgia, where they originally planned to wed two decades ago.

The couple cited excessive media's attention as a reason for calling off their wedding in 2002.

The other news to surface since the couple's nuptials included details of Lopez's beauty look for the big day.

The singer's hairstylist Chris Appleton, who previously shared footage of Lopez discussing one of her wedding dresses (see below), said: 'We felt the hair shouldn’t be overly done.

'I pulled back the front of the hair on either side to keep the face open — still with the illusion of the hair being down.

He added: 'The technique was all about getting a gorgeous, luxe finish to the hair.

'I wanted an effortless, flowy feeling — that when she walked, the hair bounced.'

Detailing what it was like to be with Lopez ahead of her walk down the aisle, Appleton gushed: 'It was such an amazing day and I was honoured to be a part of it.

'We were like two kids getting ready and playing dress up.'

On July 17, Lopez showed off her wedding ring when sharing an image of her relaxing in bed.

The photo, posted to her Instagram feed, showed her looking giddy and holding her phone in her hand, with her wedding band on show.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck married in an intimate Las Vegas ceremony, multiple sources have confirmed.

According to People, three months after Lopez and Affleck announced their engagement in April, the couple obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada over the weekend.

It was understood that the ceremony was 'small', a source revealed to the publication.

'It was super, super small. They just wanted to be married so they got married,' an insider told the news outlet.

Representatives for the newlyweds were yet to comment on their nuptials.

Lopez revealed that for the big day she wore a dress from an old movie, and footage, shared by the singer's hair stylist Chris Appleton, showed her twirling in the demure fit-and-flare design.

As it turns out though, the 52-year-old wore two gowns to say 'I do', with the second one being a lacy shoulder-baring creation by Zuhair Murad.

The design boasted an undulating train and lace-trimmed veil, meanwhile her hair was styled with princess-y bouncy curls.

Lopez unveiled her wedding dresses via her On the JLo' newsletter and shared that 49-year-old Affleck donned a jacket from his own wardrobe.

She wrote: 'So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben's closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we'll wear for the rest of our lives.'

The Marry Me star continued: 'They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined.'

'One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last.'

In the footage shared by Appleton, which was taken ahead of her vows, she explained to the celebrity hair stylist: 'I've had this dress for so many years and I was just saving and saving and saving it, and now I'm wearing it on my wedding day.'

When announcing her engagement in April, Lopez posted an emotional video to her website that showed her emerald diamond engagement ring.

Strikingly, it resembles the 6.1 carat Harry Winston creation Affleck popped the question with in 2002.

Her and Affleck's original Santa Barbara wedding was called off due to 'excessive media attention'.

The couple who originally dated from 2002-2004 released a joint statement at the time, which read: 'When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate "decoy brides" at three different locations, we realised that something was awry. We began to feel that the spirit of what should have been the happiest day of our lives could be compromised. We felt what should have been a joyful and sacred day could be spoiled for us, our families and our friends.'

They later rekindled their romance in 2021.
