‘Gossip Girl’ costume designer Eric Daman gave us the behind-the-scenes scoop on the most anticipated wedding of the year! From how many hats were used in the scene to how many buttons were on Blair’s dress, read on for all the never-before-revealed details!

Gossip Girl costume designer Eric Daman  wasn’t standing on the altar, nor did he didn’t leak Blair’s confession to Gossip Girl, but he was still definitely one of the most influential people involved with the big day! We got to chat exclusively with Eric, who filled us in on all the details we were dying to know — including why Serena, (Blake Lively), was wearing a wedding dress!

“I wanted to honor old world tradition when MOH’s would be held in the highest of esteem and they would be a reflection of the beauty of the bride and would often wear stunning gowns. The peony pink tone and hand-painted details seemed like the perfect Serena MOH wear,” Eric said. We have to agree — she looked gorgeous! A custom fascinator from French milliner Joanna Braitbart, Dana Rebecca earrings, a Blue Nile ring and bracelets from Stephen Dweck and Gerard Yasa completed her look.

Speaking of Serena’s fascinator, she wasn’t the only attendee to get glam in true, Royal Wedding fashion — in fact, Eric said, “Over 200 hats were used to make the royal wedding attendees tres royale! Graciously supplied by Philip Treacy, Sherel’s, Christine A Moore, Eugenia Kim, Ann-Marie Faulkner and Yestadt. Merci beaucoup!”

As for the royal bride, the gorgeous details on Blair’s (Leighton Meester) may not have been noticed on-screen, but Eric said, “There were 6 layers of hand embroidered french lace creating the voluminous cloud-like skirt and over 100 tiny ivory covered buttons that run the entire length down the back of her dress. It’s all in the details!”

While Blair’s dress is definitely a splurge, you can easily recreate Blair’s big day without breaking your budget — and that starts with the bridesmaid dresses! “The exquisite peony pink cocktail dresses are from Vera Wang’s White Collection for David’s Bridal! We glammed up the bridesmaid’s look with black accents, custom hats from Sherel’s Nyc and vintage inspired accessories from Sequin,” Eric said.

While the Prince might not be the best fit for Blair, everything else was definitely perfection!
