The couple tied the knot this weekend, making the bride's new name quite repetitive.
Lauren Bush, model, philanthropist and niece of former President George W. Bush, married David Lauren, the son of fashion designer Ralph Lauren, this past Sunday on a ranch in Telluride, Colorado, according to People.
The couple's intimate, yet lavish ceremony—Lauren walked down the aisle in an "intricately embroidered Victorian-style gown," designed by her father-in-law, Ralph Lauren—was just one part of a weekend extravaganza of events, ranging from a picnic and softball game Saturday afternoon to a rehearsal dinner later that night. On Labor Day, the newlyweds attended a rodeo show with loved ones. What a better way to celebrate your nuptials, right?
Among the 200 guests were former President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, Jenna and Barbara Bush, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and Ivanka Trump. The bride's grandparents, George H.W. and Barbara Bush, were unable to attend due to health reasons (and Colorado's altitude change), but sent in a video message to the couple in their absence.
Considering all of the very posh and exclusive details of the wedding, it seems like Lauren is getting more attention for her willingness to change her last name. But that hasn't affected her decision. Would You Take Your Husband's Name If It Didn't Match Yours?
"Out of all the people I could've met and fallen in love with," she joked in the May issue of Harper's Bazaar, "…I think it's nice to have the same name as your husband. I am sort of old-fashioned in that way."
Congrats to the happy couple!
What do you think of Lauren's decision to become Lauren Bush Lauren? Would you take your husband's last name even if it sounded unflattering?
