We love traditions at The Bridal Cottage! We also love personalization. So, of course, the personalization of traditions is our favorite! What do we mean? Well, we’re glad that you asked! Everyone has heard the phrase, “Something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new, sixpence in your shoe”.
But how do you actually incorporate each of these ideas into your wedding to create a cohesive, unique moment?
Something Blue’ can be your something borrowed. It can be your something old and something new too (unfortunately only a sixpence can be a sixpence…) Choosing blue accents in your wedding creates a classic look and keeps with a tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation.
Something Borrowed: Borrow a blue garter! Remember, you’ll need two garters: One you keep and one that you throw.
Something Old: Dyeable shoes! Do you have a pair of shoes that you wore way back when (maybe to senior prom) that can be dyed a blue hue? Dyeable shoes are perfect for ‘Something Old’ and, even better, they’re most likely already broken in!
Something New: Your Bridesmaids dresses! Dressing your ladies in blue is the perfect way to incorporate blue! And, fortunately, blue usually looks good on everyone!
Make your blue your own! Don’t limit yourself on what your ‘Something Blue’ should be! As we like to say at The Bridal Cottage, there are no fashion fax paus when you’re the bride!
