Fictional Follies | Jane Villanueva and Rafael Solano

Anyone as obsessed with Jane the Virgin as we are over here? We came to the party super late, but thank God for Netflix - friend of the binge-watcher. So when we were thinking about our next Fictional Follies, there was no other option.

We're fictionally joining these gorgeous co-parents in matrimony, because finally. Sorry Michael fans, but it's time to move on (no spoilers here, but dang).

So what does a Villaneuva/Solano wedding look like?

Well, we know what both of their first weddings looked like. For Jane and Michael, a traditional Catholic ceremony with a homely reception. For Raf and Petra, we saw glimpses of an over the top luxe day with all the trimmings.

So we're expecting somewhere in between for these guys - they know each other well enough now to do away with anything that isn't important to them. Shrug off the pretences and do something that is totally and utterly them.

 

For Jane's bridal look, we're hoping for something a little sexier and more relaxed than her first time around. We're thinking something to show off her toned upper bod of late, with something like these Gali Karten or Berta gowns.

When it comes to bridal hair and beauty, we're liking the idea of a playful floral crown with bright pops of colours - also harking back to her Mexican and Venezuelan heratige. Cropped, loose waves for a relaxed look, but with a sexy smoky eye and maybe a bold lip.

For setting, we're thinking a beach ceremony and alfresco intimate dinner, with colours influenced by the super stylish Marbella Hotel - vibrant peach and pale turquoise is perfect.

Food and drink inspired by their multicultural backgrounds - including Raf's mysterious Italian heritage, plenty of wine, sharing platters and, of course, grilled cheese for the evening snack (1/3 white cheddar, 1/3 yellow cheddar, 1/3 grated American cheese) - the meal Jane served Rafael when they first met.

Fictional Follies: Sheldon and Amy

Today's Fictional Follies instalment is a love so scientifically perfect, so iconic, so beautifully nerdy - it's Dr Sheldon Cooper and Dr Amy Farrah Fowler. 

So what would this glorious coming together of minds look like? There's just too much geeky goodness to choose from.

Both Amy and Sheldon, despite their outer quirkiness, we think would both still just want to look amazing. A slick tuxedo for Sheldon to play out a James Bond fantasy, and for Amy a simple gown and bolero fit for a princess (remember her bridesmaid dress for Howard and Bernadette's wedding? Yeah ya do). Oh and sensible shoes.

But though there is tradition at heart of it, there's a whole lot of fun to be had with their wedding design. Drawing inspiration from their work and their hobbies, reflecting their personalities like a good wedding should.

A simple, white tiered wedding cake with comic book detailing is the perfect summary of their traditional meets quirky day, as well as the groomsmen's simple grey suits with a pop of yellow in their matching converse.

Brainy details like the seating plan of periodic tables, and the signage made up from elementary symbols. Scientific beakers house beautiful blooms, or custom cocktails.

A wedding in which Sheldon was the groom wouldn't be right without a ton of popular culture references. Games, TV shows and movies would have their own role to play in decking out the reception space.
