Last weekend, Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas got married. I mean, they had the legal-ish Las Vegas wedding a few months ago, but they went to France to have their fancy-smancy wedding with all of their friends and with Sophie wearing a real wedding gown. Ever since then, I’ve been waiting to see if we would get any real photos – not just blurry paparazzi shots – from the wedding. Well, they waited and then they allowed Nicolas Ghesquiere to release a look at Sophie’s gown, and Sophie and Joe both posted the same “walking down the aisle” photo.

I didn’t have any expectations for Sophie’s wedding gown, honestly. I figured it would probably be Louis Vutton because she and Joe have LV contracts and Sophie obviously has a relationship with Ghesquiere. But I thought it could off in any direction – either prairie bulls–t or fake-modern or completely retro. But… it turned out just sort of conservative and okay? The gown isn’t my favorite thing, to be clear, but I like that it looks different than so many wedding gowns out there. I like that it has sleeves and it’s a bit demure. I hate the way the back looks, but again… she’s going against the wedding-gown grain there. I also love that she went for a short, simple veil.

    I’m surprised by how much I like it. It’s really different looking, but it suits her.

  2. IlsaLund says:

    I like it. It’s an appropriate look for the Queen of the North.

  3. Brunswickstoval says:

    Love the cap sleeves and then the longer lace. She looks gorgeous and like herself which is what works perfectly on a wedding day

  4. Dark and Stormy says:

    I like it 9/10

  5. ArtHistorian says:

    It is lovely. All in all, a very lovely gown.

    I especially like the back. The only think I’m not completely sold on are the long lace sleeves. It would have been better if they hadn’t been lace.

  6. SM says:

    It is a lovely gown. But what I really want to see is what Zoe Kravitz wore to her wedding. Please make a post about it, if you come across it.

  7. Kk2 says:

    Cool and different!

  8. Seraphina says:

    I like it, but it’s very heavy lace wise. Maybe something softer.

    • Chattycathy says:

      It’s so dated looking and far too old for her! I see what they were trying for but no.

  9. Chica71 says:

    Definitely Queen of North. Kinda modern historical. Wish she’d go back to darker hair color though

  10. aiobhan targaryen says:

    I am surprised at how well the Balenciage team did with this dress. I never would have thought they would try bridal.

    I don’t like the cap sleeves and the lace. Either do one or the other not both and in two different materials. But overall it is well done. I especially like the bed work and the open back.

    • KnowNothing says:

      I agree. I think this would have been better with just cap sleeves. A writer on Jezebel said it reminded her of when she used to wear t shirts over long sleeve shirts in middle school and that’s honestly what it looks like. The rest of the dress is beautiful.

      I’m also not usually the person who thinks people need to do much with their hair… But I really wish she had.

      She still looks gorgeous and happy though, and if she’s happy that’s the important thing.

  11. Eliza says:

    I’m in the minority. Not my favorite. I hate the structured shouldered short sleeve (too long to be cap sleeved) with lace sleeves continuing. I think the lace pattern is also pretty cheap looking given how luxe the stiffness is of the skirt is.

    But hey i loved my dress, if anyone didn’t like it, I wouldn’t have cared. She loves it and that’s all that matters.

  12. MMH says:

    I love it. I think it suits her and she looks stunning, and I love that it’s not your typical wedding gown. The photo of them walking down the aisle is gorgeous.

  13. theothercleo says:

    Honestly, the only thing I can think of is how hot the weather was this past weekend in the south of France. It was awful (and it usually doesn’t bother me that much). I hope she changed very quickly into something else.

  14. Billbop says:

    I actually like it. I am also so happy wedding gown sleeves are coming back. I hated the sleeveless look the last years.

  15. Lucy says:

    They both look so happy. It reminds me of how joyful Kit and Rose looked on their wedding day. All Hail Mr and Mrs Stark!!

  16. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    I think it’s pretty. It’s unique but it works on her.

  17. TIFFANY says:

    I like it and I like Sophie in it. I just feel bad for her because France has been seeing record high heat and especially the weekend of their wedding.

  18. nikki says:

    Am so tired of EVERY wedding dress being the same sleeveless fitted bodice, so was thrilled to see something different! I thought the back hem draping was really cool and different. She’s such a stunner no matter what she wears!

  19. KMAC says:

    thrilling! LOVE IT! In an odd (incredible way) it is GOT-ish, maybe it is the weight the gown gives off (could be very light, have no idea), but it is regal and modern all in one. She is stunning though I do miss her red hair.

  20. Busyann says:

    Oooh this is so pretty from the front. But the back isn’t really my cup of tea. I think this dress would have worked perfectly for a December wedding. It twinkles!

  21. Liz version 700 says:

    I loved this dress. She looked lovely and it felt like a unique look.

  22. LondonLozza says:

    What a happy, gorgeous looking couple!
    I think they both look fabulous, and I love her dress 🙂

  23. Yamayo says:

    Did you guys see the groomsmen picture with their dog wearing a mini-tux?
    It was so cute.

  24. Anon says:

    I’m just glad it’s not the standard-issue strapless trope. Seriously, strapless is so tacky and overdone. No, it’s not cool to see your tats squeezing out of a badly tailored white satin marshmallow of a gown.

    I think her gown is lovely and I like that she took the design seriously and went for something so classic and clean. Love the lace.

  25. Claudia says:

    Don’t like the back, but love everything else. It’s different, unique, suits her – and they look so happy!

  26. SJR says:

    She looks happy and pretty, so thats what counts.
    Its too lacy for my taste, not that I could ever afford even the down payment on that dress.

  27. TheOriginalMia says:

    One or the other. Either all lace sleeves or the cap sleeve. I’m not liking both. I do think it’s a pretty dress. I even like the back.

    • Emily says:

      Agreed! In the black and white picture, the sleeves look lined and I liked that much better. The sheer I don’t like.

  28. Naddie says:

    She looks like an angel.

  29. jennifer says:

    She looks like a Queen, and she rocked it.

  30. Amelie says:

    I really like this on her. As others have pointed out, the lace sleeves with cap sleeves is a bit odd. But I’m guessing those sleeves are removable and she wore them for the ceremony to keep it a bit on the conservative side, to offset the plunging neckline.

    Or she wore a shorter, different dress to the reception. I can’t imagine wanting to dance the night away with those sleeves on, that wouldn’t be comfortable plus all the sweat. And I really like the back and the veil is so pretty. I prefer shorter veils and don’t understand brides who want something so long and dragging on the floor.

    All in all I’m surprised by how much I like this. It’s very different from most gowns out there.

  31. Sumodo1 says:

    I adore it!!! It’s structured yet soft, the sleeves can go either way in future designs—I sense a best seller for knockoffs.

  32. Chrissy S says:

    She looks beautiful and I love the dress. I knew Joe was shorter than her, but he looks so tiny

  33. Chrissy S says:

    She looks beautiful and I love the dress. I knew Joe was shorter than her, but he looks so tiny

    • Caffenatedwench says:

      I think it’s adorable! My BIL is several inches shorter than my sister. It’s even more pronounced when they get dressed up and she’s in heels. But they’re still madly in love, and it’s never been an issue with them.

  34. Mab's A'Mabbin says:

    Oh wow. She really knows what she wants and how to wear it. The dress is gorgeous. She’s so tall that the richness and weighted luxury make her look like a queen. She’s pretty fabulous. The groom though….

  35. Fluffy Princess says:

    I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I do. Also, I’m not a big fan of lace, but I thought the dress was gorgeous and unique and seemed to really suit her. Sophie is wearing the dress, that dress isn’t wearing her.

  36. Diamond Rottweiler says:

    The fabric is gorgeous. Fresh to see a tone on tone pattern like that. Personally, I probably would have correspondingly turned down the volume on some of the other detail to let that fabric be the complete statement, but nice to see a young woman wearing an age appropriate and sweetly demure dress. So many wedding gowns these days look like something a 40 year old casino hostess might wear. (No disrespect to casino hostesses, but clothes are always about context.)

  37. Missskitttin says:

    I am surprised at how empty the vvenue was for the ceremony.

  38. Nicegirl says:

    She looks gorgeous and I don’t hate the gown. Not completely my jam personally but obviously it’s hers bc she is killing it. Bridal glamour do 👍🏽

  39. Rina says:

    I like the gown. Sophie looks pretty.

  40. Vv says:

    I like it! I would have kept the sleeves short,but other than that,it’s very modern and beautiful for her. I like the back too.

  41. Call_me_al says:

    Unique AND classic. I respect it, but I don’t like it. It’s too much dress for a summer wedding and just in general.

  42. Lady D says:

    Stunning lady, stunning dress.

  43. Nibbi says:

    she seems to become more and more beautiful with time. it’s pretty impressive, bc she’s always been beautiful.

    agree about the weird combo sleeves. also the lace of the veil seems to really clash with the grown, especially the fabric of the gown? a weird call on that one. it’s overall a really beautiful and unique dress and man, ske kills it, look at that joy

  44. Zzzee23 says:

    It’s not my favorite gown (by far), but I appreciate its uniqueness. It does look a bit heavy for a mid-summer ceremony, though.
