Attention, brides. You can wear your wedding dress again. Kelly Ripa says so. 

YourTango caught up with the (super toned!) co-host of LIVE with Kelly and Michael in NYC ... and confessed our massive crush on her hubby of the past 17 years, actor Mark Consuelos.

"At the end of the day, I dig him. He does it for me," the mom of three tells us and we nod in agreement.

What else does Kelly dig? Her wedding dress.

Mark and Kelly tied the knot back in 1996 in Vegas, and she reveals a must have for all Sin City brides. "A dress that is timeless, because you're not going to have the most elegant backdrop for your wedding photos. At least in our wedding chapel, it was just sort of a curtain. And so I have this dress that I still wear to this day. It's a simple A-Line, spaghetti strap dress that is timeless."

And the marital veteran has a little advice for happily-ever-after, too. "Don't get divorced after your first argument! I have a lot of friends that have one fight and that's it, they get divorced. I go, 'Wait a minute! Oh my gosh, you guys! Calm down! You'll forget in three days what you were fighting about. I promise. So just let it marinate a little bit—that's my best love advice."

Find out why Kelly says she should have had a fourth kid, the last romantic thing Mark did for her (aww), and more in our CelebLove TV video:
