Pictured: The fairytale Western wedding of Lauren Bush and fashion heir David Lauren
Daily Mail ^

Posted on 11/19/2011 4:09:05 PM PST by nuconvert

When political royalty weds fashion royalty, the expectations of grandeur are high.

But when Lauren Bush, niece of former President George W. Bush and granddaughter of former President George H.W. Bush, married David Lauren, youngest son of fashion designer Ralph Lauren, they decided to make everything a little more down-home and country.

That's not to say that the event wasn't the epitome of fashion and luxury, as the newly-wed couple described their rustic affair to Vogue.

David described the event like 'a beautiful movie... like you were riding across the old west and you stopped in at a wedding'.

The couple certainly dressed the part, with Lauren, 27, wearing a long-sleeved embellished dress with tulle, lace and crystals. The look was completed with a headpiece around her forehead and a long veil.

The more elaborate the wedding, shorter the duration.

They are going to have BEAUTIFUL kids.

And, I too, wonder about “Lauren Lauren” as her new name?

That’s the problem with having two first names like Ron Paul.

What if Paula Abdul married Ron Paul?

The only problem with that picture that makes it look modern is that it was shot either with panchromatic film or a digital camera in color and converted to gray scale as if it were shot on panchromatic film. The emulsions available to photographers in the last quarter of the 19th century weren’t sensititive to reds and greens.

Not for nothing. I had no interest in the royal wedding. Was disgusted by the media tizzy. But happened to see Pippa carry the train and went WOW!

What a great derriere.

Very nice. Poor Neil and whoever her mother is aren’t even mentioned in the story. I NEVER saw that before. Grandparents and Uncle mentioned but not the parents. Crazy!!!! I know they were presidents but still give Neil a little love.

I’m pretty sure the Lauren family name was changed from Lifshitz. I’d prefer Lauren Lauren.

The story says she is going by Lauren Bush Lauren to separate that.....not for feminist reason. I think it is a good idea. :)

The mother wasn't mentioned, but the article said that Lauren was walked down the aisle by her father Neil Bush.

What a magnificent dress! Ralph Lauren showed off his talent, and the workmanship of his atelier to the max in this glorious, unforgettable dress.
The detail work in the embroidery and beading is exquisite.
It is very elaborate, but not at all fussy. I love the very traditional elements, and the lovely photos of the bride and groom.
Ralph Lauren is the ultimate self made man and all American success story. Started out selling ties behind the counter at Brooks Brothers. His great eye for style, and his marketing genius, created a fashion empire based on quality and good taste.
Happiness and long life to Lauren and David!

Ha, my first thought too,
Lauren Lauren or Lauren Lifshitz?

WTF is Ralph’s son David using his father’s nom de plume as his legal name?

Did Lauren Bush convert to Judaism?

“She’s a babe. The country is much worse off because of her relatives in politics.”

So would you have preferred Dukakis, Gore, or Kerry?

The country and world are much better off for the Bushes slowing our pell mell rush into socialism.

And for the honesty and decency they modeled on a daily basis.

The greatest damage the current ilk are causing to America is not their socialism—malignant as it is—but their corruption.

We can return from the brink of Socialism. I am not sure America can ever recover from the systematic destruction of every vestige of honesty and integrity from every organ of U.S government.

yes, I do miss George Bush.

I thought wedding dresses were supposed to have trains, like the front dress does.

That dress looks more like a bridesmaids dress.

And a very nice bridesmaid...dress at that.
