Jennifer Lopez gets some bridal practice with extravagant wedding dress

Jennifer Lopez is set to tie the knot to Alex Rodriguez next year after the baseball star popped the question in March.

And it looks like she;s getting plenty of practice in for the big day.

The 50-year-old was seen in Manhattan wearing an extravagant embellished strapless gown and a matching veil, and for a second we thought JLo and A-Rod had begun their march down the aisle.

But we have plenty of time to buy our wedding hats, as Jennifer was simply playing a bride for her new movie.

In Marry Me, JLo plays a popstar who, on the eve of marrying her rock star fiance at Madison Square Garden, discovers he was cheating on her with her assistant.

So instead, she has a meltdown on stage, and picks a random fan – played by Owen Wilson – holding a ‘Marry Me’ sign to marry instead.

Sounds like vintage JLo movie content, and we are already psyched. Although it does have a big act to follow after the success of Hustlers…

The romcom, based on Barry Cosby’s graphic novel of the same name, also stars Sarah Silverman, Jameela Jamil and Maluma, and has been filming in NYC this month.

And it looks like they’re sparing no expense on the costume department, as Jennifer’s bridal gown was no off-the-rack creation.

The glitzy ballgown featured metallic detailing on the overskirt, while the main skirt was made of tulle and featured a huge train.

Jennifer seemed to be struggling with the weight of the dress – and it didn’t help that was she was carrying a fur stole with her.

The Hustlers star is preparing to get married to Alex, 44, next year, with Jen insisting the details haven’t been ironed out yet.

The Get Right singer told Entertainment Tonight: ‘We’re talking about it, but we don’t have any firm plans…and we’re talking about a lot of places [to get married in], but I don’t know yet.’

However, on an Instagram video, JLo said: ‘I’d like a big wedding. And I’d like to get married in a church this time. I’ve never been married in a church.’

The star has been married three times in the past – to Ojani Noa from 1997 until 1998, to Cris Judd (2001-2003) and to Marc Anthony (2004-2014), with whom she shares 11-year-old twins Maximilian and Emme.

Jennifer was also famously engaged to Ben Affleck, although the couple called off their wedding indefinitely a day before the nuptials were due to take place and split up the following year.

The Love Don’t Cost A Thing star also dated Diddy and former backup dancer Casper Smart.

However, Jen – who is set to headline the Super Bowl halftime show next year with Shakira – now understands marriage, thanks to Alex.

She told The Sun: ‘I think I’ve understood that marriage takes a lot more than just falling in love and sharing a home.

‘Alex and I had a connection from the very beginning and maybe could see a future for ourselves.

‘We talked about it a few times. But when he proposed it was a ­surprise for me. We love each other, love being around each other and have a lot of respect for each other. That’s a big part of it.’
