I just just love the Oscar de la Renta Gown Jenna Bush wore for her wedding.
The lace and delicate beading are so elegant and I love the cut! And check out her her engagement ring, it's the perfect something blue. For more on this US Weekly story get the May 26 issue.

How to create your own Wedding Theme

I'm always asked in Lela New York's consultations how a bride can create her own couture invitations using a theme or her own design. And how can I help. Well, here you go.

At Lela New York we start your consultation with a simple conversation on your likes and dislikes, your wedding venue, and other details such as your wedding dress and colors.
After we talk I get a better feeling of what a bride would like me to create for her. Sometimes a bride knows exactly what she wants and other times creating a bride's design can get a bit more challenging.
But, an idea more than a theme is what sets the design in motion. For example, I had a bride who loves the color pink , thats great, but she couldn't decide on a design or idea to start it. So after talking to her for a while I found out that the best part of her dream wedding was her dress. I then designed her invitations based off the detailed embroidery found on her custom couture dress. I also added Swarovsky crystals to it just as the dress. The final product was a classic shape invite in pink and silver with graphics and embellishments that matched her dress.
So, in conclusion, it takes listening and a good designer to be able to create your perfect theme or rather a great idea and transform it to a bride's perfect invitation.
