Welcome to Lela Rose's garden party as the designer held an intimate affair in a quaint little garden in New York City. As live music played and refreshing ice tea was being served, Rose set the stage for a charmingly delightful bridal presentation. Rose looked to today's bride for inspiration. She quotes "classic, modern, and a twist" as her theme, and she delivered just that. These looks are timeless with an contemporary edge. The designer showed some cool separates for bridal, such as an off-the-shoulder swiss-dot jacquard top with matching pant and a floral fil coupé off-the-shoulder top with a matching midi skirt.
As for the gowns, there were plenty of options – from a strapless, embroidered flounce crepe gown to a dégradé embroidered tulle gown with a ballerina bodice. Each frock was fresh and youthful. See these styles and more in the slideshow above!
