My airplane reading on Friday included two timely, guilty pleasures: Martha Stewart Weddings and InStyle Weddings. Featured in both magazines was a new line of bridesmaid dresses from the lovely Lela Rose (most recently fawned over in Not My Dress). We first heard about Lela Rose getting into the bridesmaid game with Jenna Bush's wedding, of course... one I will swallow my politics right now and admit that I loved: her casual hair, her flowy Oscar de la Renta gown, the outdoor setting, and of course, unique Lela Rose gowns on all the girls in the colors of Texas wildflowers.
Lela Rose's new bridesmaid line, it turns out, is managed by The Dessy Group, which also covers Dessy, After Six, and Alfred Sung... none of which come to my mind when I think high-design bridesmaid lines. My interest peaked, I found the dresses online that charmed me in the magazines... and they are without question, undeniably charming. I'm curious about the pricepoint of these dresses and how well-made they are. The word is, they're available next month. Report back if you see them in person... I'd love to hear how they look and feel. Some of my favorites:
