How To Do: “Something Blue” | Wedding Inspiration

Oh weddings! How we love them!

This old wives tale is a long-standing tradition that every bride doesn’t have to do, but it brings that extra something really special to the big day. 

 

Something Old

This represents something from the Bride’s past or from her family, to provide continuity.

Something New

The provides a symbol of hopefulness and optimism for the future.

Something Borrowed

This is usually something from a married woman who had a happy marriage, to bring happiness to the new couple.

Something Blue

This is seen as a symbol or purity, fidelity, and even love.

And a Sixpence in her shoe

Which brings prosperity and good fortune to the new couple.

 

We have a collection of our 10 favourite Something Blue items and ideas the Bride can add to her wedding day. Sentimental or simply gorgeous, Something Blue is a great opportunity to bring a bit of uniqueness and personality to the traditional wedding ensemble!
