The Sex and the City star married her fiancee Christine Marinoni in May (12), not long after she shaved her head to play a cancer patient in Broadway play Wit.
Nixon has now revealed her dramatic new look caused tensions as she prepared for her big day.
She tells America's Elle magazine, "I'd shaved my head to play a professor with ovarian cancer in Wit and my hair had just started to grow back. My wife was worried that my being bald was all anybody would want to talk about. My mother kept making suggestions like, 'Look at this cunning beaded cap Whitney Houston wore to her wedding, isn't it great?'"
The actress turned to her wedding dress designer, Herve Pierre, creative director at Carolina Herrera, for help.
She adds, "I considered wearing a veil but luckily Herve Pierre came up with something better, just a little bit of silver and white ribbon wrapped twice around my head, to which we affixed some small Fred Leighton diamond love birds.
"It made me feel like Tatiana from A Midsummer Night's Dream and you want to have that kind of magical feel on your wedding day."
America Ferrera wed longtime boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams on Monday at the Chappaqua, New York home of her former co-star, Vanessa Williams. Sources claim the wedding was, “an intimate setting amongst close friends and family.” That doesn't mean it wasn't a star-studded event though. Other Hollywood attendees include Blake Lively and Amber Tamblyn (her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars), along with her Ugly Betty co-stars: Rebecca Romijn, Mark Indelicato and Judith Light -- who officiated the wedding (fun!).
There were certainly no Ugly Betty outfits for her on the big day. The former Ugly Betty star wore an Amsale’s Christos dress and Fred Leighton earrings. The couple had been living together since 2007 and share a golden retriever named Buddy, whom they refer to as "our baby." Too cute. The engagement was announced in June 2010 after Ryan proposed with a 4-carat round cut diamond worth about $70,000. Way to go Ryan -- go big or go home!
These two lovebirds met long before America became the lovable-but-quirky fashion assistant on ABC's Ugly Betty which ended its four season run back in April 2010. The pair actually met when Ryan cast America in a film he was doing while he was a student at the University of Southern California. Let this be a lesson to all current college students -- sometimes doing your homework can indeed pay off. Congratulations to the happy couple and here's to a lifetime of love and happiness! At long last, Betty has found her prince charming.

Ralph Esmerian was taken into custody by U.S. Postal Inspectors in New York City on Monday morning (22Nov10) for bankruptcy and wire fraud.
The former owner of vintage jewellery retailer Fred Leighton is accused of double-pledging pieces from his gem collection to secure the huge loans to finance his business, reports the New York Post.
He is then said to have sold the items and kept the proceeds for himself when the Fred Leighton firm went bankrupt in 2008, allegedly lying to the Bankruptcy Court during that time. He lost control of Fred Leighton last year (09).
Esmerian has been released from jail on a $3.5 million (£2.3 million) bond.
