Gwen Stefani wore two custom Vera Wang gowns at her Oklahoma wedding

gwen blake wedding

As we discussed, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton got married over the holiday weekend. We knew that on Sunday/Monday, and then Monday evening, Gwen dropped some photos from her Oklahoma wedding! She looks so happy and so does Blake. I think and hope this one sticks for both of them. He was happy because they did it all on his big Oklahoma spread, and he even built a chapel on the property. She was happy because she got to plan her wedding just the way she wanted it, a classy/ranch affair with good food and their friends and families. Gwen’s wedding gown and reception dress were both Vera Wang:

Vera Wang made the two custom wedding dresses Gwen Stefani wore on her big day! Wang, 72, known for her signature bridal gowns, incorporated Stefani’s edgy personality into the garments.

The first, which Stefani wore while saying her “I dos” to Blake Shelton, was a custom lily white silk georgette gown with a sweetheart plunging neckline, cut away back, fitted bodice and high low hand tumbled tulle skirt.

She kept her hair simple for her big day, pulling her long blonde locks back under her white chapel length veil, which featured the hand embroidered names of Stefani, Shelton, and Stefani’s sons, Kingston James McGregor, 15, Zuma Nesta Rock, 12, and Apollo Bowie Flynn, 7.

A source previously told PEOPLE the boys would “have a large part” in Stefani and Shelton’s ceremony. They were a part of Stefani’s reception dress, too. A pair of hand sewn love birds symbolizing the couple highlighted hand pieced silk, crystal and sequin embroidered foliage around the waist and onto the skirt of the custom lily white Italian silk crepe and hand tumbled tulle strapless mini. Three baby love birds representing Stefani’s children were also on the ensemble.

Stefani paired the look with sky-high stiletto white cowboy boots by Le Silla and a shorter veil adorned with floral appliqués and a white bow. She accessorized with gold bangle bracelets, sparkling earrings, and a cross necklace.

[From People]

The dresses were very “Gwen.” I even enjoy her reception look with the cowboy boots. It looks like Blake got to drive the “just married” golf cart to the reception too. Judging from the aerial photos of Blake’s property, I think they set up tents (high-class tents) for the reception and party. I hope everyone was vaccinated and they had a great time. Oh, and the cake – the cake is big and fun. Oh, and Carson Daly officiated the wedding! Because of The Voice. But Adam Levine wasn’t there!!

    When did Gwen get boobs???

    • Pix says:

      I’m thinking about the same time she got her new face.

      • Can’t stop giggling. I thought she had been.

      • VS says:

        I wish we had the option to “LIKE” comment!!! indeed, her face has looked different for a while now

      • Testington says:

        I don’t get people saying she has a new face. Been a fan since the 90s and I think the work she had done was very minimal and tasteful. She has always been a woman who loved makeup and styles changing, like contouring coming into fashion, can really change how somebody looks. People act like she went full Madonna or something.

      • Jenn says:

        @Testington That music video for “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” really does emphasize how much she resembles her 1995 self. The only differences I’ve noticed are her lips are slightly overdone (though certainly not by Instagram standards!!) and she’s much thinner now. She’s probably had Botox and fillers regularly, but I agree it looks good.

    • cassandra says:

      First thing I noticed too haha

    • InVain says:

      Yeah… noticed it right away and ew. I’m happy for these two (Gwen and Blake, not the boobs) but I really wish she hadn’t messed with herself. Glad she did her signature red lip…I hate that light pink/nude glossy lip on her!

    • House of No says:

      I’m glad I wasn’t the only one to think it.

  2. Ohlala says:

    What happened to her???:((( to go from coolest to trashy. Such a disapointment

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Texas via Nashville?

    • Southern Fried says:

      Oklahoma happened to her. Sad.
      I usually like Vera dresses, at least a little.
      For a second I thought the chapel was sitting on bales of hay.

      • Lilibetp says:

        Contrary to popular belief, some Oklahomans are capable of elegance. Blake shelton is not one of them.

    • Lizzie says:

      I guess Blake likes this type of look. I don’t really follow either of them but congrats.

    • lunchcoma says:

      I loved her when I was younger, but I suspect she was never actually very cool. She’s good at dressing up as being all kinds of different things, and I liked the thing she dressed up as then, but I don’t know that there’s much of a core person underneath it all. If you look at her life, she’s spent a lot of time changing herself to fit the men in it, from her brother to Blake.

      • Holland S says:

        Very few famous people were actually cool pre-fame. Musicians and theater geeks are often not cool.

    • Plums says:

      I feel like Gwen is the type of person who changes her style to fit her partner.

      • SM says:

        Yes, all of her cowgirl routine is for Blake. And those photos scream the opposite to classy to me. All those country vibes and honestly she is what, 50? Shas 3 kids, two of them teenagers, she is divorced (no matter her shenanigans with the annulment). So all that fluffy white and that traditional cake and a veil. Seriously, too much, she is committed to acting as if she were never married, like she is acting if she is 25 marrying some rich hillbilly. Maybe not white or mixing it with something would have helped.

      • Mcmmom says:

        Eh, if she wants to wear a big fluffy gown for her second wedding, more power to her. I got re-married in my late 40s and I loved that vs my first wedding in my 20s, I could have the wedding *I* wanted without feeling pressure to do things a certain way. There is a DGAF vibe that is very liberating.

        (And got the record – I wore off white and no veil because I would have felt like an idiot looking like Cinderella)

  3. GuessWhoIsBackVita says:

    That’s nice. Congrats. I like them but I just know deep down they are Trump supporters.

    • sunny says:

      Truly this. She looks gloriously happy and beautiful and he really looks joyous as well. People who are surprised at this match need to pay attention both these peeps are problematic as hell.

    • tig says:

      Gwen literally bundled over half a million $ fundraising for Obama and was his last performer at his state dinner for the Italian Prime Minister, October 18,2016. it is easy to google her hosting Michelle Obama at her home. She literally carries totes that say “Build bridges not walls” in 2020. Weird behaviors for a Trump supporter.

      • Holland says:

        Thank you! Judging people based on their looks is the height of bigotry and should be avoided.

      • Jayna says:

        I’ve said the exact same thing on here. Trump is against everything she is as a human being. And here’s a photo of Gwen with Michelle Obama at the state dinner, as has been mentioned three weeks before the 2016 election, and Blake was with her. There’s one of her with President Obama also. And one with her children with the Obamas.

        Gwen and Michelle Obama

      • Kkat says:

        She is Orange county California through and through.
        Entitled, racist, private school, conservative, religious (when it suits her) narcissist, homophobe , pro forced birth
        I went to the same University (Cal State Fullerton)
        She is a chameleon

        She and her family are absolutely trump supporters
        She is just smart enough to play progressive because that’s what a lot of her fan bas is (was)

        I loved No Doubt, they would play free concerts at school when they were getting big
        But she and her brother are pieces of shit

  4. The Artist Formerly Known as Valiantly Varnished says:

    Good for them. She looked beautiful.

  5. Merricat says:

    They look very happy, which is nice. Big no from me on the high-low hemline–I hate it with a passion and always have; it’s the mullet of fashion.

    Yeah, the chances are pretty good that they’re Republican. Don’t know that they’re Trumpers.

    • Waitwhat? says:

      This is the country version of Axl Rose and Stephanie Seymour’s wedding in the “November Rain” video – only that was 30 years ago and pretend!

  6. Soupie says:

    Cowgirl cosplay.

    First dress is OK. I haven’t liked Vera Wang”s things for awhile.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them. I don’t particularly care for either dress.

  8. L84Tea says:

    I’m definitely not a fan of the 2nd dress because it looks so silly, but the first dress she looks gorgeous in.

  9. Nutella toast says:

    Does anyone have information on why Adam wasn’t there?


    Those are western style boots (through the shaft) but I don’t think they are cowboy boots. Which is all good I just thought they were going to have kick ass embroidery and a snip toe.

  11. Ash says:

    I think she looks stunning in both dresses, as she always does! I love her looks. It’s cute that Blake built the chapel, too. I wasn’t sure about them as a couple at first, but they have grown on me and they seem very happy together.

  12. Jayna says:

    That black-and-white photo is gorgeous, and their dog Betty n the photo just makes it. The other photo with Betty sitting under part of her gown was so sweet also. Maybe it was a video.

    Their new home on his ranch by the lake looks looks fantastic. I love the idea of this wedding being about family and all the children there: Gwen’s boys, both of her brothers’ children, her sister’s children, Blake’s sister’s children. And also having it out on their beautiful property in the country by the lake. One of the best weddings I’ve ever been to was like that, minus the lake.

    Gwen was a beautiful bride. I also am glad she had her signature red lip. I don’t believe she got a boob job. She has had very tiny implants for years, since the first two children, I believe. And a recent video two weeks ago of them showing up at a little surprise backyard party for Blake’s birthday didn’t appear to show any difference. Her boobs were still small. I bet it’s just padded and pushed up the way the gown was designed for her.

    The top of the wedding gown is fine, not my favorite, but I do love all of the tulle of the bottom of her gown. I’m not a huge fan of high-low hemlines either, but it doesn’t seem as drastic as others I’ve seen, at least from what I could tell. I’ve never been a huge fan of Vera Wang’s gowns overall. Some are stunning, some not so much. Overall, I think her wedding gown is very pretty on her. I would love to see the back without the veil, because it has a bow on it. Putting the embroidered names of Blake and Gwen and all of the kids at the bottom was so thoughtful and sweet, because it isn’t just them getting married. He’s marrying a family.

  13. Scal says:

    Does anyone else think she looks bald? Like legit her hair is pulled back so tight that in the BW shots it looks like her scalp.

    Her first wedding dress was SO iconic that this just looks blah in comparison. The party dress is great, but the actual wedding dress looks predictable for a ‘rock star’ in my opinion. The boots are amazing.

  14. Humbugged says:

    Gavin waited all of ten minutes before posting pics of him and Gwen in Hello . And then ran to OK saying he wants to talk man to man with Blake

    • Jayna says:

      Do you seriously believe OK? LOL Of course, he didn’t say that. I don’t believe he posted those photos of himself and Gwen to Hello either. He did post his own Instagram photo with the boys with a passive-aggressive comment on celebrating the 4th. I believe that was because I feel he sometimes thinks people forget he is their father. But he doesn’t even do it that often in retaliation for all of Gwen’s photos with Blake and the kids.

      • Humbugged says:

        Funny how he is all over the place today then .Also this was the same guy who has been bad mouthing her since she broke up wth him – remember the Gwen was having an affair stuff that her released

        He should have kept in out the nanny

      • Jayna says:

        @Humbugged, that did remind me of something I had forgotten. A year or two after the divorce, he gave an interview in Europe when he was touring. It wasn’t on TV, but it was a live interview in person. Wow, was he clueless. He talked about loving touring and glad to get back out in Europe. He brought up having to cancel a tour the year he and Gwen had their problems. He said he canceled his tour to work on the marriage, but she divorced him anyway so he might as well have gone on the tour. I’m paraphrasing. I mean, his wife found out he had been banging the nanny, who Gwen treated like family in a way, and he had been doing it for years, but since she eventually felt the marriage was over and divorced, why did he bother trying? Aw, poor Gavin. LOL

        Really? I mean, his home life imploded. His marriage was spiraling down, if not over, and all three of his kids were affected during this. And he acts all affronted because she had the nerve to finally leave him after he had, gasp, canceled plans for an upcoming tour to try to save the marriage. Talk about entitlement and no self-reflection at all. He destroyed the marriage.

  15. Case says:

    She’s someone who matches her style to whoever she’s dating and I just don’t get why people are like that. Like cowboy boots, really?

    • Jayna says:

      They aren’t really genuine cowboy boots. They are a nod to boots, but they are also high stilettos. I mean, they did get married on a ranch out in the country. It works. My niece listens to zero country music, and she once told me she would love to get married in a cool venue out in nature and wear a beautiful long gown with some type of boots underneath as she walked across the grass.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      Yeah, she wears boots to her wedding now. And there’s her fake camouflage outfit with Blake. And country-ish music now. I don’t know if it’s insecurity? Like, hanging on to a man is more important than self-identity? (I think Duchess Kate is the same way).

      • Jayna says:

        Camouflage isn’t the problem. Gwen wore mutliple camouflage pants and/or jackets when she was with Gavin. There’s photos to show that. And Gavin wore camouflage pants also. You can see mutliple photos of both of Gwen and Gavin in camouflage. Lots of stars do.

        Now, since getting with Blake and feeling sexy and obviously all loved up she admitted she has gone very girly. I think it’s all the sex and being loved up by Blake that did that. But that’s where the girl has gone cheesy. Lots of sparkly, super short Ice-skater-looking outfits on The Voice, etc. Some of her hairstyles are dated. Whereas, with Gavin most of the time she looked amazing on the street and Gwen in her touseled hair. She still does hit the mark at times, but, boy, at times does she wear some cheesy outfits too, which take away from the cool vibe she used to have.

        I think Blake loves her legs. She has amazing legs. So she’s gone overboard with super short outfits and lots of fishnet wearing like Madonna started doing when she hit her late 40s.. Enough with the fishnets, Gwen.

  16. Pamspam says:

    “Edgy personality.” Haha, ok.

  17. Watcher says:

    I love the shorty dress, it’s so saucy & cute!

    I’ll be honest when they first hooked up years ago I assumed it was a PR stunt, but here we are years later & they’re married and it looks like it was real all along? Go figure.

  18. Marie55 says:

    Never forget Britney did the short reception wedding dress first when she married k-fed!

  19. Tinnie says:

    Her makeup is just so heavy that I don’t think it goes with the ‘look’ of the dress. Even if she dialed back a tad… she said when she was married to Gavin that she wore makeup to bed and maybe even that he liked that. Sometimes now she posts pics on Instagram where she’s more natural and I think she looks much better. I also think the hair pulled back makes the look more severe. I know they are very different and it works for them but I also think the pictures would look better of the two of them if she’d just modified it a tad. Of course it’s her wedding… but everything doesn’t have to be ‘statement.’ I just think the pics would be so much nicer! I hope it lasts too. It is sweet that they connected.

  20. Jayna says:

    Gavin is all salty. They married on July 3rd. For July 4th, on his Instagram Gavin posted a black-and-white photo of him with his three children walking down the beach. The photo was taken of them from the back as they were walking. His caption: “Happy 4th. We are going this way.” LOL

  21. You Know Me says:

    SHE IS A LOSER & so is that drunken (fake) cowboy.

  22. Holland S says:

    Since when is getting a boob job a sin? Plenty of celebrities have plastic surgery, including boob jobs? And plenty of women are mean to other women about boob jobs etc, but when they get extra cash to run to a plastic surgeon’s office for a touch up. Live and let live. All of this criticism because they may or may be Republicans and live in Oklahoma. It’s so judgmental.

    She had a tough time with Gavin, so if she wants her “over the top flashy romance and wedding”, let her. Same for Blake and Miranda , who was allegedly a serial cheater.

  23. K says:

    She looks refreshed..but ya know it’s Hollywood. Good luck kids. I do love that doggie in the photo with them.

  24. Amando says:

    I don’t like either dress. She’s gotten very thin in recent years and the top of the dress accentuates her boney chest. That coupled with the bad boob job is just not a good look.

    I used to be a huge fan of hers but she has changed a lot since getting with Blake. I wish them luck. This is his 3rd marriage and something tells me…not his last. He has a pattern of dating a women for a few years, marrying her, and then dumping her after a couple years for someone new and exciting.

    • Jayna says:

      He left his first wife for someone new. But that wasn’t the case with Miranda. The bottom line is he didn’t walk out on Miranda for a new woman. He walked out because he caught her cheating.

  25. CooCooCatchoo says:

    I loved old school No Doubt, and she was a major style icon for me in the mid 90s. Her first wedding dress remains one of my favorite celeb ones ever. So beautifully constructed, and the ombré coloring at the bottom!

    • Jayna says:

      It is iconic and one of my favorite celebrity wedding gowns of all time also.

      She had another wedding dress before her wedding to Gavin. I also remember her rocker wedding look in the No Doubt “Simple Kind of Life” video. That scene towards the very end of the video shot from behind with her walking away holding the baby and the way that gown flowed and the lighting Sophie Muller filmed it in was so stunning It’s such a melancholic song. I wonder if Sophie was there. She is a longtime friend of Gwen’s since the No Doubt days and even shot Blake’s God’s Country music video and was at one of their Thanksgiving dinners in Oklahoma.

      Simple Kind of Life

    • L4frimaire says:

      That Galliano dress was so amazing and beautiful. Very iconic. These Vera Wang dresses are just ok, but she’s not a bridal designer I’m into, and I’m not into strapless gowns. The bow on her head is very Ariana Grande. I’m just not into Blake Shelton and don’t know his music, but she’s gorgeous, I like her music, so congrats to them.

  26. Ange says:

    Getting November Rain vibes from that short one.

  27. You Know Me says:

    So the surrogate was impregnated on their honeymoon.

  28. Bri says:

    That hideous getup spells D-I-V-O-R-C-E in a year ,maybe less.
