Eva Amurri's Wedding Gown: All the Details!

When Eva Amurri began planning her Charleston wedding to Kyle Martino, the pieces all fell effortlessly into place — every piece but her dress, that is.

She tried on numerous white gowns, but “they didn’t feel like me,” she told PEOPLE in September. “I just felt like my head was stuck on a different girl’s body.” But after some tireless Internet searching, Amurri believed she’d finally found her dream dress. “I just fell in love with it,” she said.

The bride asked designer Lela Rose to create a breathtaking look for her big day, using the satin-faced silk “The Woods” gown with three-dimensional lace yolk and low back as her base. For a personal touch, Amurri and Martino’s wedding date was embroidered in the lining in pale blue, for the bride’s ‘something blue.’

Amurri commissioned Rose to make mom Susan Sarandon’s mother-of-the-bride dress, too; she produced a silk faille sheath that also featured a three-dimensional lace neckline. “Eva loved the idea of them sharing a design detail,” Rose tells PEOPLE. “The three-dimensional lace seemed so fitting for both and gave a nod to their close relationship.”

Though all eyes were on the bride — who paired her dress with kitten heels she found online for $80 — the groom had his own dapper getup, as well. “Kyle’s tux is gorgeous,” Amurri adds. “Brioni made it especially for him.”

But nothing could compare to seeing Amurri walk down the aisle in her custom gown. “Working with Eva and Susan was an honor. I was well aware of their talent and beauty but their incredible graciousness made the experience one I will not soon forget,” Rose shares. “And when Eva put on the gown, of course she was stunning but you could immediately see how comfortable she was. She felt like the most beautiful version of her everyday self. Once we made a few tweaks, the gown was undeniably her.”

“I love my wedding dress,” adds Amurri. “It was just perfect for me, and already feels like it would be hanging in my closet. I loved it from the moment I tried it on.”

I agree Janet…I don’t care for Susan Sarandon at all…her mouth has gotten her in trouble too many times. With that aside, the dresses are pretty on their own merit. Can’t harm the designers for who their customers are.

I think her gown is beautiful and I’m thrilled to see it is not strapless.

@ Toni- Did you bother to read the story? It says that “Amurri commissioned Rose to make mom Susan Sarandon’s mother-of-the-bride dress, too; she produced a silk faille sheath that also featured a three-dimensional lace neckline. “Eva loved the idea of them sharing a design detail,” Rose tells PEOPLE. “The three-dimensional lace seemed so fitting for both and gave a nod to their close relationship.” If this is what Eva wanted, what is the problem. As stunning as she looks in her wedding dress, I hardly think Susan’s dress took anything away from the bride. If anything, it compliments the bride’s taste and certainly stresses how very important her mom is to her. Just sayin’

How lovely the bride looks! I, personally, like that her Susan’s dress has similar detailing and I really love that it was requested by the bride herself. Congratulations to Eva and Kyle. Many lifetimes of happiness to the both of you.

I think Eva’s dress is gorgeous and I think it’s so cool how her and her mom’s dress compliment each other.

I LOVE both dresses. I loved how her mother’s dress was designed to coordinate with her. They look beautiful. (Loving the lace looks on wedding gowns these days…)

I love both of their dresses. Very tasteful and elegant. The only change for me is that Ms. Sarandon should have worn a clear bra strap instead of nude. It showed up in the picture. Beautiful women.

I also think the dress is beautiful and the idea that a design element was shared between mother and daughter was very special! I don’t think the bride was ‘upstaged’ in any way.

LM on

Wow, she looks smashing as a brunette. Generally I think celebs look better blonde, but she definately should stay with the dark hair. Very elegant.

Lola on

I think Eva is an unconventional beauty just like her mother. The dresses are gorgeous.
