Little sister's wedding: of cartoons and colors.

The excitement is growing... we are all packed, all the boxes in my to-do list of last minute errands have been ticked, and now is when I get to tell you how all the inspiration went from Mexican-outdoor-party to Lilac and Turquoise. It turns out that my sister and her fiancé (well mostly my sister) are big fans of Disney movies. Early in their relationship, she started calling him Sully (from Monsters Inc).


So it was only natural for them to use the colors of the film for their decorations and cake toppers.  (I will show you those when the time comes, but it was an adventure to find them. We went to all kinds of toy stores and Disney shops but in the end the rainforest saved the day).


But if Sully was supposed to represent the groom it was a bit weird to use little Boo as the cake topper so we had to find a princess, or some other character to pair it with. We wanted someone wild and fun loving, not your regular syrupy girl. First we thought of Kevin, the crazy bird from Up, but it was impossible to find a little figurine. And then, we thought... well Rapunzel ! She is adventurous a rebel, and up for anything, and her dress happens to be lilac, so it was perfect. Also, she has a camaleon !


Anyway, I already showed you the dress I will be wearing. Well, my sister in law will be wearing a similar one in the same fabric. Have you read this article on how to coordinate mismatched bridesmaids? Since everyone is far away we decided to let everyone do their thing, sticking to a general palette.


 As for the accesories, I will be wearing lilac shoes, that I already had, and the boys will use these turquoise ties.  I am so happy. I literally can't hardly wait. And yes, I know details are not important and clothes and fashion and earrings and necklaces are irrelevant, but it is fun right ? And we have to wear something!

First images, in order, from here, here and here.

    1. Si, emoción al mil ! Gracias... y si con la pared de flores se nos ocurrió que seria chistoso hacer un diptico. Siempre me pregunte como seria tener una gemela jaja !Y los zapatos fue amor a primera vista, creo que son los únicos zapatos de verdad elegantes que tengo, y por suerte combinaban (o decidimos que iban a combinar) !

  3. I love the dresses! Looking back, I wish I had done the coordinating-but-not-matching bridesmaids dresses. Oh well.

    1. Thanks :)
      And don't worry, I am sure your bridesmaids looked beautiful, new ideas keep coming, but that doesn't mean your day wasn't what it had to be, it was :)

  4. Liking these cute anniversary gift ideas. Went for a baby shower of my neighbor at one of the superb LA venues last month. Pink and blue theme to welcome the little one was awesome. Baby cake was designed beautifully. Music was quite soothing and table arrangements were sober too.
