A Little Something Blue!!

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something BLUE! This is a wedding tradition that derives from the Victorian Age which was a very romantic era! The colour blue is meant to symbolise love, fideltiy and modesty and in Christian eyes purity. It is therefore thought that if the bride wears or carries something blue at her wedding she will be blessed with good luck! Who doesn’t want some added good luck?!

 

The modern day bride may alter this tradition a small bit to make way for more querky original ideas that can be implimented into several parts of the wedding and not necessarily worn! Here are some ideas that are different, unique and could add a bit of spice to your wedding day!
The bride could opt for the traditional blue garter or blue underwear, i love these lacey ‘i do’ knickers. Accessories to the gown could be a complimenting option with a small clutch handbag or a fabulous pair of heels or perhaps a hairpiece or piece of jewellery are more your taste!
The wedding itself could see flashes of blue amongst the favors on the tables, or guests could be seen sipping blue cocktails from martini glasses perhaps signifying each guest toasting to a future of good luck for the bride and groom?
The options really are endless but they need to be kept classical and pretty and not too overbearing so that they achieve the desired effect. I adore this blue hanger from My Suspended Moments for you to hang your wedding dress off. Its a truly meaningful piece.
Would you be daring enough to wear this Oscar de la Renta dress or this princess dress seen on Wedding by Colour? The choice if yours but make sure you always add some blue how little or how big!!
