By now we’ve all seen the photos of Blair (Leighton Meester) running down the streets of New York in that gorgeous wedding dress, a look of fear/exasperation/worry on her face. We’ve also seen the photos of her at the UES’s St. James Church ... and the photos of her and Louis getting in their car, presumably post-wedding. In fact, it feels like lately we know more about this wedding than we should, right?

But as we were perusing that wedding invite while sorting out the details of the upcoming time jump, a thought occurred to us...

Can you guess what it might have been?

Why is any part of B’s wedding being filmed in NYC, anyway? See there on the invite? The part that says “Sainte Devote” ― as in, the church in Monaco? Yeah...

Sure, we could explain this away with a little bit of Blair’s divalicious ways (read: Blair says “We must get married in NYC!” and Louis says “Alrighty!” ― bonus points for knowing the vintage Sex and the City reference, pals!), but Louis IS a prince, after all. And we’re thinking that EVEN in the face of BLAIR WALDORF, certain traditions must be upheld when it comes to the royal family, no? Isn’t, like, at least half of Blair’s princess fantasy about acting the part of a princess?

Might then the setting of what we’ve seen thus far indicate that this is all merely the rumored dream portion of this fairytale, merely one of Blair’s “couple” trips down the aisle? Or might the fate of one CHUCK BASS (and Louis’ perpetual guilt over his recent streak as a total cad) play into the wedding relocation, so that B can tend to her ailing friend (slash, you know, SOULMATE)?

Too many questions left unanswered with too much time to postulate!
