Creating a Custom Bridal Gown

Continued (page 3 of 3)

New York City-based designer Lela Rose crafted individual gowns for each of Jenna Bush's attendants, including her sister, Barbara, in related styles and colors inspired by the outdoor setting of Texas in May. “This allowed each girl to have a design and color that worked well for their shape and personality,” she says. The handmade rosettes adorning each of the frocks in a different spot gave the looks a couture touch, but the demure feel of the styles ensured they didn't distract from the bride.

Finally, where better to pack all these bespoke items than in a custom-made trunk? French luggage house Goyard will monogram its “Palace” valise with the couple's new initials. Besides being an elegant accessory on the honeymoon, this classic white suitcase will keep made-to-order memories safe for generations.
