Lela Rose, Halston Heritage, and BCBG Max Azria Wedding Dresses available at Shopbop.com

When we first heard that one of our fave online retailers, Shopbop.com, was the latest to get in on the bridal game, we got all googly-eyed. Big dreamy designers like Lela Rose! Halston! BCBG Max Azria! All at a click's reach ranging from the VERRRY affordable $195 to the reasonable-for-a-wedding-dress-but-still-sorta-expensive $5,000 in short, long, fashion-forward, and classic styles. But then we backtracked. Not because we're not exactly, technically, anywhere near an engagement (idle dress dreaming is innate for the ladies regardless of whether you've nabbed a ring. #thatsanotherdaydream), but because who would agree to buy the "most important dress of your life etc. etc." online without EVER trying it on first?! That's a pretty big gamble. So unless this is a Vegas-style impromptu throwdown, we're guessing it's one most people aren't willing to take. Then again, any gown will need major alterations. So is the risk worth saving some bucks and snagging a big name designer within five to seven business days? What say you? We're torn. Chime in in the comments!

+ Would you buy your wedding dress online? Or would you ONLY say "Yes to the Dress" in person?

Gossip Girl's eighth episode of season 4, "Juliet Doesn't Live Here Anymore," premiered last night, and a familiar love triangle reappeared as we saw Nate (Chace Crawford) and Dan (Penn Badgley) still pining for the gorgeous Serena (Blake Lively). Speaking of Serena, she looked gorgeous while getting so much attention in a stunning steel gray Zuhair Murad dress with a lace overlay. Elsewhere, Leighton Meester and Jessica Szohr opted for floral and patterned floor-length frocks by Ralph Lauren and Christian Cota, respectively. The ladies looked elegant in the gowns, but the sleeveless styles and pastel hues reminded us too much of summer, whereas Blake's gray dress was the perfect fit for fall. She definitely wore our favorite look of the episode, but what do you think? See the looks below and tell us who you thought was best dressed.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
