A “Family Only” Wedding Is So Special


Barbara and Jenna Bush as Babies

Jenna Bush and Barbara Bush Cropped

The “Ying” to Jenna’s “Yang”, Barbara Bush, was married last weekend in the presence of only 20 family members. The ceremony took place at their ancestral home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

Barbara’s custom Vera Wang featured a shoulder softening cape (love!).

She wore a blusher (love!), but with her hair down, the comb had no grip and slid so far down that it wasn’t a pretty bubble (non-love!)

And then to make it worse, she removed the veil right after the ceremony. (Level 10 non-love!)

Sidebar advice: If not an up-do or even half up/half down, a pony tail holder will gather enough hair to give the comb’s teeth some stability.

And of course, I’ve never understood why brides sometimes regard their veils as ceremony only “props.” It’s the only day in your life to be dressed fully like a bride…wear your veil as long as you want to feel like a bride. MJN
