The Secret Meaning Behind Gwen Stefani's Wedding Dresses

Over the July 4 weekend, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton finally tied the knot, after postponing their wedding multiple times because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic (via CBS News).

The superstar couple first met on the set of "The Voice" in 2015 and bonded over their shared divorce struggles. Their working relationship soon blossomed into a full-blown romance and lead to a beautiful wedding ceremony in Tishomingo, Oklahoma (via USA Today). On July 3, the couple wed on Shelton's ranch, in a chapel the country singer built for Stefani.

Following the nuptials, Stefani shared photos from the special day on her Instagram. In the photos of the couple standing in front of the chapel, cutting their wedding cake and driving off to happily ever after, the "Hollaback Girl" creator revealed her big beautiful wedding dress. The Vera Wang sweetheart neckline gown with a high low tulle skirt was not only breathtaking but also held a very special meaning to the bride.

Gwen's three sons helped design her wedding attire

Gwen Stefani wore two Vera Wang dresses on her wedding day (via People). For her first dress, which she wore to the chapel, Stefani donned a lily white silk gown and tied her hair into a top knot, under a floor-length veil. 

The show-stopping veil featured embroidery at the very bottom, with Stefani and Blake Shelton's names alongside Stefani's three sons names. Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo also helped design the "Rich Girl" singer's reception dress as well.

For the second dress, Stefani donned a mini dress with a fitted bodice, tulle skirt, and matching white pointed-toe boots. On the skirt of the dress, Wang included hand-sewn love birds to represent the couple and three baby love birds to symbolize Stefani's children. The singer shared a black and white photo of the look to her Instagram with the caption, "You need a party dress when u get to marry @blakeshelton." It's clear from all of the photos Stefani has posted that she looked stunning on her big day and is over the moon about starting her life with her new hubby.
