Nicole & Evan's PJ: 12/29/2009 SBP/Ariels

Hi everyone! I've been around the boards for a little while, but since we're doing our planning session tomorrow, I figured I should get around to a PJ!

I'm Nicole and my fiances name is Evan. We met over 7 years ago in high school and started dating soon after. Evan is actually a couple years younger than I am, so when I went off to college (Ball State) he ended up going to an academy on that campus, then on to Purdue. Flash forward a few years later and I live in Williamsburg, VA as a tailor (I think you can guess for what company) and Evan is currently in the Navy, doing school in Charleston. The military thing has made planning this wedding pretty difficult, but we're hoping it'll work out!

He proposed to me last December (with some mischief from my friends). They got me to go to an evening performance (18th century ball) with them one weekend. Unknown to me Evan had driven up from Charleston, they had gotten him a full 18th century silk suit from work, and he was waiting to surprise me at the end of the show. When they invited him in, it took me a few seconds to recognize him! Well, it went off beautifully and my friends were smiling about it for days. Turns out half of where I work knew about it before I did!

As for the wedding, since I'm a theatrical design person, it's going to be a 1930s style gala. I'm sure I'll have a lot more details soon, but for now I can say I'm not only building two gowns for me, but Evan's morning suit as well. My two bridesmaids are seamstresses as well, so they're making their own gowns. I think part of the reason we're doing a Disney wedding is so I don't try to do everything myself! I'm already making the invitations and favors on top of the sewing projects (I did give in and purchase the top hats though).

We'll be meeting with our wedding planner (Ken) tomorrow, so I'll be trying to add lots more after that!

Well, Monday was great, if not a little overwhelming! I just flew home this afternoon, so I don't have time to go through it all right now (but soon!). So, here's my inspiration board I put together. We're using a lot of silver, navy, aqua blues, and some copper. For decorations think orchids, mercury glass, and palms.

Congrats on your engagement. Can't wait to hear about you PS. BTW I love your inspiration board. We are using navy blues and silver and pink for our wedding. And I really love the silver and blues together.

I suppose this is the point where I'd put up pictures of my gown, but seeing as 10 yards of silk doesn't look like much, that's going to have to wait a couple months! Hopefully I'll get my sketches uploaded soon though. In the mean time, I can put up pictures of the top hats and the fascinator I just got this week (squeal!).




While on the subject of accessories, my bouquet is going to be the vintage layed-out style with cala lilies and orchids. I'm going to go on the hunt for a vintage brooch to pin to the wrapped stems soon. Adding that to the list along with hair combs for the BMs, a silver purse, and something for my hair at the reception. Why is it that the guys get off so easy with all this? I picked Evan up some cufflinks last week and all he needs now is a tie-tack. Eh, but I'd miss the feathers if I was a guy.

I actually had time off last night, so I got some sketches done and uploaded! These are the two gowns I'm in the process of building:

It's going to be out of an off-white silk charmeuse, and possibly a silk velvet for the jacket.

This is for the reception and I managed to find a real silk lamé in silver (not the scary spandex kind). I'm going to have a shoulder wrap piece with long strands of beading (inspired by Ginger Rogers).
Now I just have to make sure I don't eat so much at the reception that I bust out of the gown!

ooo I love everything! I'm doing an Art Deco theme myself.

My MOH just moved back to VA, well it's almost been a year , but she's going to William and Mary for Grad School. I love Williamsburg. I always say that whereas most kids had annual passes to Disney etc., I had one to Colonial Williamsburg, still have mine from when I was 5 lol.

Can't wait to read more
