This is not a drill, ladies: Blake Lively has shared a rare glimpse of her wedding dress on her new lifestyle site!
The Gossip Girl star and Gucci muse launched her website Preserve earlier this week to equal amounts of acclaim and derision. Whilst many can argue about the validity and importance of her artisanal condiments and lifestyle recommendations, we're more interested in the video which has launched her site…
The film by Bryan Rowland shows (at around the 1:31 mark; watch it here) a tiny glimpse of Blake dancing at her wedding.
Blake married Ryan Reynolds in 2012 at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, at an intimate wedding orchestrated by the team of Martha Stewart Weddings.
The wedding itself was pictured in the magazine, but famously (and much to the entire world's disappointment) there wasn't a single shot of Blake and Ryan.
Well, that's not entirely true… we got to see a picture of their hands, and an itty bitty tiny glimpse at the skirt of Blake's dress, but nothing more.
From the Preserve film we can now see that she wore her hair up (surprising considering how fabulous her golden locks are) in a low chignon. Her bespoke Marchesa dress had elaborately embellished straps and a slightly ruched bodice. Beautiful!
In a recent interview with American Vogue, Lively revealed that her custom-made dress was damaged at her wedding reception:
"Florence Welch was singing at the reception, and they brought out these sparklers, and I'm watching her sing. I look down and my wedding dress has a big burn mark from one of the sparklers. Right on the front! And it was just so heartbreaking to me," she said.
"And later, my dress was hanging up and Ryan said, 'Isn't that beautiful?' I said, 'What?' And he pointed to the burn. My heart just stopped, because it was such a sensitive little subject. And he said, 'You'll always remember that moment with Florence singing and the sparklers. You have that forever, right there, preserved.' Now that's my favorite part of the dress."
Aww, so sweet. Now can we see the full dress, please?
