Lauren Bush Lauren’s Custom Ralph Lauren Wedding Dress… Revealed!

Lauren Bush recently got married to David Lauren, resulting in her delightful transformation into Lauren Bush Lauren. In a tasteful nod to the current economic climate, Bush chose a simple off-the-rack white sheath.

Just kidding! David’s dad Ralph Lauren and a team of 100 spent more than 3000 hours crafting her custom wedding gown. Here are the gushing sentiments:

Bush Lauren: “It was like a dream come true. We sat together and arrived at this silhouette. It isn’t Victorian exactly. I wanted something modern as well, so there is the high-necked collar and puffed shoulders with the large open back.”

Vogue: “Made of richly embellished fabrics, the dress’s top layer is featherweight tulle in antique ivory. Some 100 craftspeople spent more than 3,000 hours hand-embroidering the tulle with delicate motifs of small flowers and Renaissance-era scroll designs in ivory silk and metallic thread, Swarovski Elements crystals, and off-white pearl beads.”

And here it is again, from Norma Jean Roy‘s shoot with the happy couple for December’s Vogue. For your supreme, almost orgasmic enjoyment, the editorial (and characteristically fawning piece) is called “Western Union.”

One more. You are seeing this correctly:

      Holy crap…this is AMAZING. Definitely better than Kim Kardashian’s wedding.

        Agreed!

        Thats what I just said to my sister “See Kim that’s how you wear a headband/headpiece!”

        Love love love the dress! Love that it’s backless, adds the modern to it I like his suit too.

        Both have an old fashion twist without being cheesy.

      Wow, I love it!

      I also love his look. that gilded age cutaway and watch chain, with the modern belt–and his hair is also perfect. Did his dad cry when he walked down the aisle ;)

      Oh, wow, they look gorgeous – a beautiful dress that doesn’t distract from the (beautiful) woman wearing it. (I am loving the fact that lace sleeves are back among the celebrity bridal set) I am now planning to marry a fashion designer’s son.

      Yep, I can’t say anything bad about Lauren’s dress. It’s like a dream. Her dress puts Kate’s and Kim’s to shame and her new name … How I love her new name!

      I hope Lauren and David have a beautiful life and marriage. They are a stunning couple.

    • Steph

      Her dress is gorgeous!

    • Dee

      Wow… I can’t find words to describe how absolutely stunning that gown is. And Lauren–already gorgeous to boot– looks beautiful wearing it! Totally makes me hate my wedding gown now :(

    • Jane

      I am obsessed with this dress, it’s so gorgeous! They both look perfect, a beautiful couple.
