When the wedding march rings out in Crawford, TX on May 10, Jenna Bush will be wearing Oscar de la Renta. The designer just confirmed he's designing the first daughter's gown, saying, "Yes, I am doing her dress. We've already started and we're going to make it very special."
Jenna will be 27 when she marries Henry Hager at her family's ranch. Thank goodness she's getting hitched because it made me find this great web site, WhiteHouseWeddings.com. Did you know:
There have been twenty-one White House weddings, including nine presidential children and one president, Grover Cleveland. Two other presidents were married outside the White House during their time in office, John Tyler and Woodrow Wilson.
I do not know why Jenna's not having her ceremony at the ol' White House — I would do that in a heartbeat! She'll be the best-dressed bride in Texas. I wonder if she's getting white cowboy boots designed to go with?
