Jenna Bush’s May 10th wedding date may be fast approaching, but there’s one detail she no longer needs to worry about: her bridesmaids’ dresses. The First Daughter looked to designer — and fellow Texan — Lela Rose to create the custom styles for her nuptials, USA Today reports. And from the look of the designer’s sketches, Jenna’s 14 attendants will walk the aisle in style, dressed in muted hues inspired by native Texas wildflowers. The above-the-knee gowns come in a variety of cuts, including boat neck, spaghetti-strap, and halter. “With a group that big,” explains the designer, one “should not be limited to one style.” The dresses also incorporate an unexpected detail: hidden pockets. “All (the Bush dresses) have them,” Rose says. “It’s another way of having a casual, sportswear feel but still geared to a fancier setting. And it’s a place to put your lip gloss or rest your hands.” Click here for more on Jenna’s gowns — and a few of Lela Rose’s bridal tips and trends.

Anyone who honestly thinks that taxpayers will be paying for a presidents daughters wedding are the people who are “out of touch” with reality….

Wendy-How is this a show of arrogance? How is it unacceptable to have 14 bridesmaids? Jenna is getting married. It’s her special day. Every bride deserves to have the wedding she desires. Some people have big families and a lot of close friends. It’s hard to choose your bridesmaids and having to worry about hurting someone’s feelings. When I had my wedding, I had 10 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls and 175 guests. I really doubt that taxpayers are paying for this wedding. The Bush family has money. I think they can afford to pay for a beautiful wedding. Some of the people on here need to get over the jealousy and grow up!

You all that are flipping out about this girl having 14 attendants,The Donalds X just had a huge wedding down here at his big place in Palm Beach and it was her “4th” and she had 50 attendants, so back off the kid.

ARe you kidding me yeah 14 is way to much i mean come on she’s gonna be divorcoed in at least 5 years i don’t care what anyone says. and the color palette is not cool. the blues and greens are find but what’s with the burgundy thrown in there. very bland and blah.

I saw an interview with Jenna earlier this week. She choose not to get married at the White House because she wanted to have it be more about family and friends than her dad being president.

how nice… i wish i could get married someday but seeing as though i’m a homosexual i don’t know if that’s ever going to be able to happen because of the fact small minded hateful bigoted morons like her fater are running this country right now… good for her though

linda on

it’s not jenna’s fault gas is high, it’s her wedding don’t spoil it with poltics

VG on

IF you read the interview that has been done with Jenna Bush and her mother in Vogue, they say that the White House would have been the easy option with everyone there to help arrange it. Surely that would have been a waste of taxpayers money (staff wages, location, additional security) so good on them for making it about family and the happy couple.
