The actress married in a “shotgun wedding”

Many brides may spend months, even years trying to find the perfect wedding dress – but not Julia Stiles.

The pregnant actress opted for more of a simple approach to her big day, even ordering her frock online.

And the best news is that it only set her back £199!

Julia and her now-husband, camera assistant Preston J. Cook, secretly tied the knot earlier this week and ever since she shared a snap on Instagram, fans have been going wild over the design.

In the snapshot, Julia cradles her baby bump while Preston affectionately lays a hand on it following their “shotgun wedding” on a beach in Seattle, Washington.

Who doesn't love a shotgun wedding? 😉✨

But it was the glimpse of three-quarter length sleeves, a bump-friendly empire line cut and a lace overlay that appeared to interest people more.

One follower even admitted that she wore the same “pretty” dress for her wedding when she was eight months pregnant.

The Verona Gown Long in Bright Ivory is available from Tiffany Rose Maternity – a company which specialises in maternity dresses for weddings and other special occasions.

The official product description reads: “Soft and sensuous, our Verona long ivory maternity bridal gown is romantic and graceful.

“A figure-enhancing bodice with a divine empire line gives way to a full-length skirt lined in softest, premium jersey.

“The smooth drapes flatter and elongate your silhouette, while the gentle curve of the scoop neck shows off just enough décolletage.”

You had better be quick if you want to get your hands on one though as it’s already selling fast – we can’t imagine it will be around for long.
