Gwen Stefani wore two dresses designed by Vera Wang on her wedding day over the weekend.
The Hollaback Girl singer tied the knot with country star Blake Shelton at his Oklahoma ranch on Saturday, and on Monday night, she shared pictures from their special day, revealing that she’d recruited iconic wedding gown designer Wang to make her not one, but two, dresses.
For the ceremony, Stefani wore a custom-made lily-white silk georgette and hand-tumbled tulle gown with a plunging sweetheart neckline, fitted bodice and cutaway back. She paired the dress with a lily-white chapel-length veil featuring her new husband’s name as well as the names of her three sons – Kingston, Zuma and Apollo – hand-embroidered on the hem alongside two white roses.
For the reception, Stefani, who was styled by celebrity stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, switched into a more alternative Wang look that harkened back to her rock star roots.
She wore a custom lily-white Italian silk crepe and hand-tumbled tulle strapless minidress with a fitted bodice and silk, crystal and sequin embroidered foliage trickling from the waist down the skirt. The embroidery also includes a pair of hand-sewn love birds which represented the newlyweds and three baby love birds which symbolised her children.
The singer completed the evening look with white stiletto cowboy boots by Le Silla and a shorter veil featuring floral appliqués and a white bow. She kept her platinum blonde locks pulled back from her face in an updo and accessorised with gold bangles, sparkling earrings, and a cross necklace.
“You need a party dress when you get to marry Blake Shelton,” she wrote alongside a snap of the look on Instagram.
Meanwhile, the country singer wore a black tuxedo jacket over a white shirt and black waistcoat as well as dark blue jeans and a light bow tie.
Stefani previously tapped designer John Galliano to make her dip-dye wedding gown, which featured a pink hem, when she married her first husband Gavin Rossdale, the father of her sons, in 2002.
