Have you decidend on the little "somethings" you will carry down the aisle with you? It is a wedding tradition to incorporate something old, something borrowed, something new, and something blue into your wedding. As tradition has it, it is meant to bring the bride and groom good luck on their wedding day. Something old and borrowed are easy to incorporate into your wedding day as you can use family mementos and jewelry. Your wedding dress could be used as something new. The something blue represents faithfulness, loyalty, and purity. Your something blue is a fun way to get creative!
If you’re sentimental, you could incorporate your something blue with a monogram on your dress. I also like the idea of taking a loved ones old shirt and sewing a blue heart into your dress to wear over your heart. This would be a great way to have the memory of a lost loved one with you on your big day.
If you love shoes then this is the something blue for you! Try a bright royal blue heel to walk down the aisle for your something blue. I've even been to a wedding where the bride wore a pair of light blue Toms--and she danced the night away in her comfortable shoes! Plus if you spend money on blue shoes, you’re more likely to wear them again!
A pedicure with blue toenails would be a fun way to incorporate your something blue. I really like the Wedding Collection by Essie. Try the “Borrowed and Blue” polish by Essie, or a fun blue polish you like!
Add a statement with your jewelry in a stunning pop of blue ! Then after your wedding you still have those gorgeous blue earrings or necklace to wear! You’ll always remember your wedding day when you put on this piece of jewelry.
A sentimental bride (or groom) could use a blue handkerchief to wipe those happy tears away ! You can easily find a handkerchief at a flea market or thrift store. I really like this one with your monogram!
Make sure to have your photographer capture all of your “somethings” in a picture. This way you will always be able to remember the items you choose to have with you for luck on the happiest day of your life!
