Update: A rep for Giambattista Valli just confirmed that Jessica Biel did in fact wear a gown, veil, shoes as well as 4 pre-wedding looks by the designer.

The strapless gown of silk mousseline and silk organza consisted of a light pink floral motif and ruffles. The veil, which consists of Biel’s’ heirloom pearls, was also created for her by Giambattista Valli. All women in the bridal party, including both the mother of the bride and mother of the groom wore Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gowns to the ceremony. Jessica wore four looks with shoes and clutches from the Giambattista Valli SS13 collection to events leading up to the ceremony.

Us Weekly, stylist Bobbi Thomas and other news outlets are now reporting that Jessica Biel wore Giambattista Valli — not Elie Saab as previously reported — to wed Justin Timberlake last weekend.

Biel, 30, wore a pink and white dress in a “princess-like silhouette” for the ceremony at Italy’s posh Borgo Egnazia hotel, then switched in to a less formal dress for the reception. The former N’Sync’er and his groomsmen sported Tom Ford suits.

Pink is having quite a moment for celebrity wedding dresses: Anne Hathaway wore a pink dress earlier this month, as did Reese Witherspoon last year. The color was also very popular at the Fall 2013 runway shows.

According to further reports, the pink dress was just one of many non-traditional aspects of the wedding. During the reception, Timberlake, no stranger to a good love song, serenaded his bride with a tune off his new album. Questlove, who deejayed Amber Tamblyn’s wedding recently, then leaked all those photos on Instagram, was entrusted to deejay the reception. Prior to the wedding, the Total Recall actress and her groom celebrated in Southern Italy for an entire week of events, finally surprising guests with a secret wedding ceremony on Friday evening. Guests didn’t even know where exactly the ceremony would be, since they were first flown to Germany and then to Italy.

If you love the idea of being pretty in pink like Jess and Anne, check our slideshow above so the best blush to pale pink gowns on the market.

Not only did Jessica opt for a Giambattista Valli wedding day look, she wore 4 looks from his SS13 collection during the pre-wedding events leading up to the nuptials — presumably for events like the rehearsal dinner. There are no photos yet, but here’s what we’d style brides in from the collection:
