10 Blair Waldorf-Inspired Wedding Dresses for a Statement-Making Look (2)

Gossip Girl, the iconic show following a group of privileged students on the Upper East Side of New York City, is known for its drama and fashion. On the TV series, the clique of high school students regularly wore outfits created by some of the most popular designers, and whenever a couple tied the knot on screen, their nuptials saw no shortage of style. Specifically, Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester) was a character who had not one but two weddings, and as the daughter of a fashion designer, her attire definitely made a splash at both events.

For her first wedding, Blair was swept off her feet after meeting Prince Louis (played by Hugo Becker) in Paris, fulfilling her dreams of becoming royalty. The two went on to say “I do” in a luxe church ceremony in New York City, and in true Gossip Girl fashion, it was Blair's attire that stole the show. She walked down the aisle in a strapless A-line gown, featuring Chantilly lace and an oversized bow around the waist by Vera Wang, which came from the designer’s Fall 2010 bridal collection. “Blair Waldorf is an American princess, so for me, it had to be very tailored and very modern but also have a very classic kind of old-world sense to it,” costume designer Eric Damon explained to E! News. She also topped off her regal look with a glittering tiara and a diamond necklace.

Next, after calling off her marriage to Prince Louis, Blair got her long-awaited happy ending with Chuck Bass (played by Ed Westwick) at the Bethesda Fountain in New York City’s Central Park. To no surprise, the socialite chose a colorful ensemble for her vow exchange: a long-sleeve, blue Elie Saab dress covered in beaded detailing and wrapped in a belt.

“When I saw the Elie Saab dress finally chosen for Blair’s wedding to Chuck, it was absolutely perfect for her,” Daman explained to InStyle. “It needed to feel like old-world glamour meets contemporary high fashion. I liked the beautiful blue hue. It reminded me of the wedding dress Wallis Simpson wore during her scandalous wedding to the Duke of Windsor.” Since headbands were Blair’s signature look, the bride also accessorized with a silver headband that included a leaf motif by Jennifer Behr.

If you fell in love with one of Blair’s looks, we put together a roundup of similar replicas you can purchase for your own nuptials. Ahead, keep reading to find the best Blair Waldorf-inspired wedding dresses to make a statement at your ceremony.

The Most Memorable TV Wedding Dresses of All Time

Size: Contact retailer | Materials: Chantilly lace | Length: Floor-length

This Elie Saab number features the same Chantilly lace fabric and billowing silhouette that epitomizes Blair’s first dress. In this iteration, however, long sleeves replace the Gossip Girl character’s strapless neckline for an elegant style, one that's reminiscent of the influential ensemble Grace Kelly wore on her big day. If you’re hosting a classic or romantic affair at a church, estate, or chateau, this gown checks all the boxes.

If you’d prefer a pop of lace instead of an all-over design, this version is also great due to its sleek, crepe skirt. And to mirror Blair’s bare neckline, consider removing the detachable straps.

Covered in pearls, beads, glitter, and sequins, this dress will match the surrounding décor while guaranteeing a dazzling entrance from you. Although this gown has the same neckline and silhouette as Blair’s, the semi-sheer fabric and corset top make it more risqué and arguably more attention-grabbing.

Featuring colors and details that are just as striking as Blair’s, the floral-printed bodice and sequined skirt add even more decoration to the overall look. What's more, given the flutter sleeves, midi hemline, and V-neckline, this dress is a whimsical option for an effortlessly chic bride.

Most Modern

Lulus Light Blue Satin Dress

10 Blair Waldorf-Inspired Wedding Dresses for a Statement-Making Look (11)

Size: XS-XL | Materials: Satin | Length: Floor-length

While Blair’s second gown is known for its show-stopping hue, this dress from Mac Duggal delivers even more vibrancy. Though the base is a similar shade to the character’s getup, this duplication features additional purple, silver, and gold tones. With floral embroidery and cap sleeves, consider this number for warm-weather weddings.

Best Mini

Erdem Floral Sequin-Embellished Dress With Frill Hem

Size: 6-14 | Materials: Sequins | Length: Mini

Mini wedding dresses are having a moment in the bridal fashion space, and we love this Erdem iteration for a Blair-approved look.
