Every bride-to-be has heard the age-old adage “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” but not every woman knows how she can apply that to her own wedding celebration. In this week’s post you’ll see some fun ideas on how to wear something blue for your big day!
Most brides will already be wearing ‘something new’ on their wedding day—-a wedding gown! That one’s easy; it’s the other three that can be tricky. Instead of hunting down two separate items, lots of ladies choose to combine the ‘something old’ and the ‘something borrowed’ by wearing a piece of heirloom jewelry or lace given to them by their mother, grandmother or another family member.
In the past, brides would embroider their new initials with blue thread or pin a blue ribbon inside the wedding dress. But many modern brides are having fun trying to find new ways to incorporate that something blue into their own weddings. Many ladies are wearing blue nail polish, blue costume jewelry, blue shoes, blue garters and lingerie or even having blue accents on their wedding gowns! Needless to say, having a ‘something blue’ included in the festivities can take your wedding day from fun to fantastic! And don’t be shy about it—blue is a funky color and you should enjoy picking your very own ‘something blue’!
