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.”

Tony- did you not read the article? It was the bride who commissioned the designer to make her mother’s dress and loved the idea of them sharing the design detail. It’s her wedding, not yours!

I don’t care what the hater think..Susan you and your daughter look beautiful.. You daughter is stunning..and you look wonderful. I think it is a tribute to you that she wanted you to look similar to her..Kudos to you and her and for your relationship. I really hope you enjoyed the day…both of you. Thank you for having the class to not “sell your story” or “cash in” on the big day. God bless you and Eva and thank you for sharing you big day. So many people think it is a god given right for the public to bash the “stars”..but you have grace and dignity..and you both look wonderful. Pity on the rest of you..Go hate on the Kim for her farse of a wedding..and for that idiot Jessica Simpson for trying to sell her “knocked up before married” story…ugh what has America come to??

@Toni-Did you read what the article said? Eva had that dress made for her mother, to match the three dimentional lace. So, apparently she didn’t think it was tacky! What part of this did you not see?

“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,”

Toni, your comment is ridiculous. Are you incapable of reading? “Eva loved the idea of them sharing a design detail.” The bride WANTED it, so I hardly think that it is a case of anyone stealing anyone’s thunder.

And Janet, based upon your comment (“No matter how nice the mother of the bride’s dress may be, it cannot make a Catholic-bashing, nauseating big mouth liberal bigot like Susan Sarandon attractive in any way,”) I would suggest that perhaps you are not as Christian as you think you are.

Wow, there’s a lot of hate for an article about a wedding dress! A dress that I think is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Both dresses are really great; love them both. I think Susan’s dress is different enough but it fits with the theme. How many times do you see the bride’s and bridal party’s dresses matchy-matchy?

Beautiful gown for a beautiful bride. Susan’s dress is lovely, too.

What a beautiful picture, a beautiful lady and a beautiful gown. I love it! I am so tired of seeing strapless wedding dresses.

Miriam on

She looks gorgeous and so much like her mother in this picture. I wish people would stop comparing her to Kim K. That wedding was a joke and should be silenced to death.

Brooke on

Just what a beautiful gown and equally beautiful mother-daughter pair.

“So many people think it is a god given right for the public to bash the “stars””

As does Sarandon herself, who thinks it’s her right to bash other public figures. She gets what she gives. It’s silly to whine that people are bashing her while letting her bash someone else.
