By George, We've Got It

Yesterday, Mum, Olivia and I went on a little wedding excursion in search of inspiration. I'm pleased to report it was a very successful trip. We visited Rediscoveries in Butte, possibly the best Vintage shop in Montana. There we found exactly what we were hoping for: a color scheme in the form of a beautiful 1940's silk curtain panel (pictures to come). It has just about all the colors Tay and I love; lots of greens, a little light turquoise, some creamy browns and a little black. From there, things seemed to snowball. Moments later I happened upon about three yards of a very light bluish-green 1940's slipper satin. Very shiny, very soft, and oh so matchy. Now we not only had a color scheme, but the fabric for a bridesmaid dress- light Turquoise, with the curtain panel print for a sash. Yay! But wait, it gets better....

We popped over to Bozeman to check out Totally Vintage Apparel, a super groovy vintage shop crammed full with hats, shoes, funky circle skirts and one very large, very drooly black great dane. Of course I tried on all the hats, just as I had at Rediscoveries (two of which Rediscoveries will hold on to for me). It was a fun little side trip, but little did we know, fate was calling us downtown... I spotted a little store called "Hey Day". It was featuring our new color scheme in the window, so we just had to go in. Hey Day is a another funky store selling kitchen and bedroom wares. Mom found a pile of ribbon that perfectly matched not only the greens in the pattern, but the light turquoise in the slipper satin! Ka-razy. Needless to say, Mom bought a TON. In summary, we now have colors, bridesmaid dress fabric, and ribbon for ...what ever ribbon is used for in a wedding. Yay! The next few goals: a general guest list, a pattern for bridesmaid dresses, and the beginnings of announcements and invitations (featuring graphic designer extraordinaire Onawa L.).
