Blake Lively and Penn Badgley by Giovanni Rufino/The CW
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today for the wedding of
's (8 pm/ET, the CW) Lily van der Woodsen (
) and Bart Bass (
Robert John Burke
). And if you've been following this addictive Upper East Side story, you know the nups will be as OMG-inducing as the rest of the teen drama's freshman season.
"The wedding does happen," assures exec producer
. "Just not without complications." Or glamour: The bride is wearing Vera Wang, the cake is from New York's baker extraordinaire Sylvia Weinstock and real-life socialite Lydia Hearst is on the episode's guest list.
But what of our favorite tortured teens? "It's a very emotional episode," Savage says. "There are makeups and breakups for the major couples." XOXOh-no!
