Gwen Stefani Shares Emotional Moment She 'Said Yes' to Wedding Dress Before Marrying Blake Shelton

"The moment I said yes to the dress," Gwen Stefani wrote on Instagram, sharing throwback videos of her fitting for the Vera Wang wedding gown she wore to marry Blake Shelton

Gwen Stefani tied the knot with Blake Shelton over two months ago, but she's still basking in the bridal bliss.

The three-time Grammy Award winner, 51, reminisced about the emotional moment she chose her Vera Wang gown, sharing a throwback video from the fitting Monday on Instagram. "The moment I said yes to the dress," Stefani wrote in the caption.

She was glowing as she saw herself in the custom lily-white silk georgette gown with a sweetheart plunging neckline, noting in a hashtag that it was the second dress she tried on.

Stefani turned to model the cut-away back, fitted bodice and high low hand tumbled tulle skirt, as well as her white stiletto cowboy boots by Le Silla and her long veil. She also wore some gold bling around her neck, featuring her and Shelton's last names.

The completed chapel-length veil was hand-embroidered with the names of Stefani, Shelton, 45, and Stefani's sons, Kingston James, 15, Zuma Nesta Rock, 13, and Apollo Bowie, 7.

She also gave a glimpse at some of the other dresses that stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn brought to the fitting, which ranged from über-girlie and feminine to long-sleeved, sleek and blinged-out.

After selecting the Vera Wang gown that was ultimately the winner, the No Doubt frontwoman also chose a second, shorter version of the dress for the reception. "You need a party dress when u get to marry @blakeshelton," she wrote, showing off the look on Instagram.

She later preserved her wedding gown and flowers in a box, telling Wang in a video that "it was literally a dream come true to be able to work with you and get married to Blake in your gown."

Stefani previously debuted her bridal fashion choices after she and Shelton got married at his Oklahoma ranch on July 3. "His love for her is so deep," a source told PEOPLE at the time. "Having the wedding at home was a way for their families — and Gwen — to be as comfortable as possible."

The Sweet Escape artist began dating Shelton in November 2015, after she joined him on The Voice coaching panel. They announced their engagement in October 2020, almost nine months before they tied the knot.
