The Dreamgirls star, who became engaged to David Otunga in 2008, revealed that she previously created her own prom dress.
"I designed my dress, but it wasn't the first time because I also designed my prom dress," Hudson told Women's Wear Daily. "I've always had a love for making things my own.
"The dress has three compartments: a coat, a dress and a train," she continued. "It has its own little show.
"With my wedding dress, I was like, 'It has to be me'. My mother used to say, 'If you want something done right, do it yourself'."
In November 2011, Hudson was forced to deny reports that the couple had broken up.
