The old British saying goes, "Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” Our previous posts have been on the old, the new, and the borrowed. Last but not least we round off the collection with ways to incorporate “something blue”!
Some may wonder why the color blue is so closely associated with weddings. Did you know that blue is actually the color associated with purity and fidelity?
Originally, this color was supposed to help ward off the “Evil eye” that would make a bride infertile! In recent times though, incorporating blue may seem incredibly easy, as many brides choose to have it in their color palate.
There are endless options of blue wedding products in the market. From wedding dresses, to flowers, to decorations, blue can be anywhere! But what about for brides who don’t want blue as visible on their wedding day.
For those brides who aren't keen on having blue as visible on the big day, here are some of our favorite alternatives. If you absolutely don’t want your blue visible you may want to consider wearing a blue garter.
This way, the only way people will see it is if you choose to have a garter toss at your reception. For those who don’t mind a bit of blue, using blue ribbons may be a perfect choice to tie your bouquet together!
Another option is to tie a blue string around your finger next to your engagement ring. This can “hold the place” of your marriage band until the person giving you away cuts it off at the altar. Finally, for those who don’t mind just a splash of blue, try blue statement shoes or blue nail polish!
