This summer, the US Olympic team will stroll into the opening ceremonies wearing Ralph Lauren for the third games in a row — check out the sketch of the preppy uniforms on the left. This is a big honor, and we couldn’t help but think back to the other important designs he’s done: the two wedding dresses he created for family.

Dylan Lauren’s Dress: Ralph designed a gorgeous silk tulle-and-duchess satin dress for his daughter, Dylan. It’s over the top in all the right ways — the train is nine feet long and that mermaid hem accentuates her figure perfectly. “I had to do something that was better than ever before. [She’s] the only daughter I have,” Ralph told Oprah in an interview last year. “I want to just give her something that she’d really treasure and give her something that would be really amazing. I want her to feel fantastic.”

Lauren Bush’s Dress: For his daughter-in-law Lauren Bush, Lauren went for a dramatic pattern with a tulle and ivory silk overlay. The gown took one hundred craftspeople more than 3,000 hours to hand-stitch, and Bush told Vogue that the collaboration with the designer on her gown was “a dream come true.”

Both gowns are jaw-dropping, and both show off a different aesthetic of the American icon. Which dress is your favorite?

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
