Busy Philipps re-wears wedding gown to celebrate film reunion

Busy Philipps put on her 2007 wedding dress to celebrate reuniting with her Made of Honor co-stars during her talk show Busy Tonight on Wednesday (10Apr19).

The actress revisited the look from her big day while sitting down with Michelle Monaghan and Whitney Cummings, who showed up wearing bridesmaids dresses for the episode.

"I really pulled out my wedding dress from 12 years ago and wore it on my show tonight," Philipps wrote on Instagram after the show aired. “It basically fit except my stupid upper rib cage which grew after my 2 babies. No one tells you about that s**t. But babies expand your rib cage so, just be aware. This is a PSA (Public Service Announcement).”

Philipps' stylist Erica Cloud chimed in with a comment on the post, joking: "But we got that zipper up AND the belt was loose so... that’s a WIN.”

During the show, comedian Cummings recalled protecting the actress on set during a particularly rough scene, because she knew the blonde beauty was set to tie the knot the following day.

"We were shooting on an actual swamp,” she recalled. “I spent most of the day holding a net over Busy’s face so that she didn’t get bug bites on her face!"

Busy initially wanted her wedding to be low-key, but production on the film delayed her plans.

"(Husband) Marc (Silverstein) and I were planning a surprise wedding; I didn’t wear a ring and we didn’t anyone we were getting married,” she shared. "We just had invited all of our friends to this surprise birthday party. They thought they were coming to surprise me. But the plan was always that I would show up in this dress... and then we would say, 'The surprise is on you, we’re getting married right now!'”

She added, "Then I got cast in Made of Honor and how could I say no to a job that’s so good."
