Drew Barrymore opens up on 'perfect' wedding

Drew Barrymore doesn’t wish for any do-overs on her recent wedding day.

The newlywed star told People magazine that her Montecito, California, nuptials to Will Kopelman were absolutely flawless.

"The day was perfect," the 37-year-old bride said of the June 2 ceremony. "Everyone we love and care about was there. It was as fun and meaningful as we ever could have hoped."

Barrymore, who is expecting her first child, kept it simple on her big day, said event planner Yifat Oren, who claimed the “Going the Distance” star "just wanted a backyard wedding” for her third trip down the aisle.

(She was previously married to both bar owner Jeremy Thomas and Canadian comedian Tom Green.)

But the mom-to-be certainly looked upscale, wearing a flower-embroidered Chanel gown custom made by the legendary Karl Lagerfeld.

The 78-year-old designer said he loved how the white muslin-and-organza gown turned out. "She knew what she wanted . . . and she got it," said Lagerfeld. “For someone who is pregnant she looked perfect."

Guests like Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Jimmy Fallon and Busy Phillips were reportedly on hand to enjoy the “vintage romantic”-themed affair, which included details like classic lace, pink flowers and green garlands.

  1. Curious about her engagement ring

    Drew has a very unique sense of style. I wonder where she will get the engagement ring and matching bands from.

    We found ours here: http://www.anjolee.com searching around for vintage style rings.

    I'm glad that she wore a more modest dress...but she could have picked something that wasn't quite so ugly. That's an old lady dress.

    my girl and i was at the gym when this g money thug life wanna be grabbed her arm and tried macking on her. I told him..hey the woman is with me. He replied. Whatcha going to do white boy? I walked right up to him and hit him right on the jaw and knocked his sorry a$$ rightout. He fell over like a tree falling in the woods. I yelled timber! as he went down. It was so darn funny seeing him wake up and crying about his jaw. All he could do was take his embarrassed butt home. Was such a beautiful punch

    I love that she chose a very tasteful modest gown as she is pregnant. It is very sweet–wish other brides would borrow a few of the elements of the dress.

    Talk about class-less....pregnant at her wedding. What happened to morals and a little class?!? Lost all respect for this washed up nobody. Will K. could do sooooooo much better (hot, wealthy and nice). He aimed low.

      Ooooweee@Cali Cutie. Who swallowed the bitter and jealous pill this morning? Its more about the person than it is about shallow looks. She is absolutely adorable and you know it. I wish them well.

    I'm sure she's a very nice person and all – but is a third wedding really news? She's almost 40, pregnant, and a three time bride. If this was your neighbor you'd be rolling your eyes.

    After two previous marriages I would hope Barrymore's third wedding would be "perfect." How much practice does she need?

      There always seems to be someone who feels compelled to make snide remarks instead of merely wishing another person well! Just because Drew is a well known celebrity doesn't make her exempt from making mistakes! When was the last time ANYONE was declared perfect?!! Best wishes for all the happiness possible and I applaude your courage to never give up nor be jaded in pursuing love and happiness!

    At least, she had the perfect wedding. I woke up in a drunken stupor with a wedding ring on my hand. Damn alcohol! I'm paying for it now.
