Texas Motif for Bush's Bridesmaids

First Daughter Jenna Bush’s fashion choices will reflect her Texas roots when she gets married May 10 at the family’s ranch in Crawford, Tex.

Rose said Jenna Bush is taking everything in stride. “She’s very relaxed, easygoing and just so happy,” the designer said. “She has a great group of girls around her and she’s known many of them for years. I think she’s enjoyed every single moment of it.”

Jenna Bush and her attendants have visited Rose’s atelier for fittings and a few even caught the designer’s bridal fashion show on Sunday. The behind-the-scenes meetings with the designer were an extra kick for the women, but Barbara Bush already knew the ins and outs, having worked for Rose as an intern during her undergraduate days at Yale.

The Bush and Rose families have been friendly for years. Jenna Bush and her parents attended Rose’s wedding in Dallas in 1999. Rose’s mother, Deedie, a pillar in the Dallas art and design scene, recommended architect David Heymann to work on the Crawford ranch.

Now that Lela Rose has the attendants squared away for dresses, she needs to figure out what she will wear. “I have no idea. It’s terrible. Whenever I have some sort of black-tie event, I usually decide what to wear right before I leave,” she said.
