Excited to finally be able to share this sweet feature in the new Flower Mag… Our friend, Lela Rose was in town for Charleston Wedding Week, and we just had to throw a celebration to welcome her to Charleston.

In honor of the release of her new entertaining book, we hosted a Bloodys, Biscuits, and Book Signing Brunch. Biscuits from Callie’s Charleston Biscuits and a full scale bloody mary bar were perfect for the Friday a.m. fete… stay tuned for more details on a future blog post. Thank you to Lucy Cuneo for all of the photos!

Lela Rose’s wedding designs having been gracing brides and their maids for almost 20 years…Originally from Texas where her flagship boutique resides, Lela’s brand has boomed beyond bridal into the Ready to Wear market (see our fave picks below), and house wares. She has also become known as one of the most gracious hostesses in New York. Last year she hosted a dinner in her home honoring the Ferran Adria “Notes on Creativity” collection shown at the Drawing Center (see the feature in Bon Appetit here).


Lela kindly answered our “burning” questions…I’m making her green smoothie right now- yum!

Favorite drink before noon?

LR: The green smoothie we make for breakfast. we make it with spirulina, spinach, banana, peach, strawberry and almond milk. We all fight for the last glass.

Favorite drink at 6pm?

LR: Well, that is considerably less healthy than my morning drink. I have always loved margaritas and am partial to my husband Brandon’s. He fresh squeezes the lime juice. Over the long winter though, I have started drinking my fair share of the Nor’ Easter, this is a bourbon and ginger beer drink which has been a delicious winter drink.

Wine: red, white or champagne?

LR: Reds

Hors d’ouerve that is always in the cabinet or fridge?

LR: Manchego cheese and quince paste

Music go to when friends are over…. i.e. Pandora station?

LR: I have a Spotify playlist and one of my favorites is “Uptown goes Downtown”

Where would you like to go on vacation?

LR: Japan

Favorite flower?

LR: Magnolias

Dream guest to have over for dinner?

LR: Savion Glover- I have a dream party idea and it involves him tap dancing down all the tables. 

Favorite restaurant? 

LR: Current favorite is Estela

And favorite thing to eat at this restaurant?

LR: there are too many delicious dishes to name just one…the beef tartare, mussels in escabeche, mushroom dumplings

I pulled some of my favorite pieces from Lela’s new bridal collection:









For inspiration for engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, honeymoon, or just for wardrobe dreams in general here are some of our fave RTW pieces… and some special behind the scenes pics from her New York Fashion Week runway show…
