When Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake tied the knot, there was one thing we specifically wanted to see: Her wedding dress.
But it was the farthest thing from traditional. On Oct. 19 in southern Italy, the 30-year-old stunner walked down the aisle to meet her future hubby in a rather frothy pink number by Giambattista Valli.
Now the actress explains why she decided to go with it.
"I wanted the dress to be very romantic and feminine and a shape that I very rarely wear," Elle magazine's January 2013 cover girl says in the issue. "I have never been crazy about all-white wedding dresses, for me at least. [Giambattista Valli] had created that same fabric in a fuchsia-and-pink combination for a dress in a previous collection, and I asked him if he could create that same pattern in a white combination, and he suggested pink."

"It was a bit of a leap of faith at the time, but it turned out better than I could have ever imagined," she continues. "[Putting it on], I felt like I had made the right choice. I felt elegant. And it moved like a dream.”
And there you have it!
As Life & Style reported this week, Jessica threw quite the fete for her bridal party following her big day.

So how's she feeling about married life?
"It feels like you have this partner who is going to be with you and also change light bulbs and do dishes with you," she explained to Ellen DeGeneres earlier this week. "It means always having someone to open the pickle jar...to share the ups and downs with, have adventures with. Someone to go swimming naked with. That kind of thing."
Ah, to be a fly on their wall!
