The move looked set to collapse after talks between The Latics and Wright failed to find an agreement.
However, a deal has now been agreed and Wright has signed a three-year contract at The JJB Stadium.
"I'm delighted to complete my move here and can't wait for training to start on Thursday now to be honest," Wright told Wigan's website.
"The deal has taken a little time to complete but once I knew Wigan were definitely interested and that Crewe had accepted a bid, it wasn't a difficult decision to make.
"I had a great time at Crewe but I feel that the time is right to move on and I'm very excited to sign here at The JJB.
"It's the first move of my career and that makes it even more exciting as it should give my career fresh impetus."
