Jaime Pressly might finally be in newlywed bliss, but things had to have been more than a little tense leading up to her nuptials — especially when it came to making sure she had the perfect dress for her and her bridal party. When the My Name is Earl star asked one of her favorite designers, Jenny Packham to create something special for her wedding day, time was of the essence. With only two months to go until the big day — and two bridal and 10 bridesmaid dresses to produce — it was no small task. “Jaime tried on some looks from Jenny’s bridal runway collection and provided feedback,” a rep for the British designer tells PEOPLE, adding: “After Jenny sketched several designs, Jaime selected the two looks and we went into production.” With no time to spare, eight beaders worked around the clock to affix the 800,000 Swarovski crystals, beads and sequins by hand to the ceremony gown. Worn with a crystal head dress and a veil from Packham’s bridal collection, the look was complete. The bridal party continued the glamorous theme, with Pressly’s 10 bridesmaids all in sparkling platinum one-shoulder dresses, also designed by Packham, featuring a crystal motif at the hip. To end the night in style (and to save any disasters on the dance floor) the bride changed into a 1940s-inspired beaded bell-sleeve cocktail dress to party the night away.
