Playing EXCLUSIVE: Eva Longoria Dishes on 'Magical' Wedding Surprises and Always Being Open to Love

After tying the knot with husband Jose "Pepe" Antonio Baston in Mexico, and traveling to several exotic locals for their blissful honeymoon, Eva Longoria is opening up to ET about her glamorous, star-studded wedding.

"It was a magical," Longoria shared with ET's Nischelle Turner at the actress' restaurant, Beso, in Hollywood, during the after party for the premiere of her new film, Lowriders, on Wednesday.

"Ricky Martin jumped up and sang 'Livin' La Vida Loca' and one of his old Menudo songs," the 41-year-old Desperate Housewives alum recalled. "Carlos Vives sang our first dance song, that was a surprise."

It seems that Longoria's epic wedding was just full of surprises, including her friend and former co-star, Vanessa Williams, serenading the couple before the ceremony.

"Vanessa Williams sang 'Save the Best For Last,'" Longoria shared. "We were standing at the altar and I hear the song 'Save the Best For Last' and I was like, 'Uh, God I wonder who's singing this song?' And Pepe goes, 'Turn around,' and I turn around and I was like, 'Oh my God!'"

Longoria also opened up about her stunning dress, which she collaborated on with bestie Victoria Beckham.

"It was so much fun because when I was in London, Victoria pulled out every single dress she's ever made and we got to like pick that top with this bottom but that zipper but this color but that fabric… I just felt like a little girl in the best wardrobe ever."

As can be seen with her gorgeous, curve-hugging wedding dress, she likes to, keep things simple and elegant. Which is why she's eschewing tradition when it comes to her rings, and only wearing her wedding band instead of coupling it with her engagement ring.

"I'm a simple girl. My engagement ring was a bit too much for me so I couldn't wait to wear just the band," she explained.

As for taking her new husband's last name, Longoria says she loves it but doesn't know if she'll use it professionally or not. "When you change your name, nobody uses it," she said. "So I'm gonna do Eva Longoria Baston, but we'll see."

This is the third marriage for the actress -- who was previously married to actor Tyler Christopher from 2002 to 2004 and NBA star Tony Parker from 2007 to 2011 -- but she's managed to avoid feeling jaded about love and relationships.

"I've always been open to love. You should fall in love as many times as possible. I've never been closed off or afraid of it even after failure," she explained. "I was never that tortured soul like, 'I'm never opening up, I have walls.' I'm like, 'Come on in!'"
