Have you chosen your ‘Something Blue’ yet?! I have been thinking lots about this subject and sadly it’s been consuming my mind all weekend, lol! All I can think about is adorable blue shoes peeking out from under wedding dresses or pretty tiffany blue toenails,…obsessed! I really wish I wore blue wedding heels! So many fun ideas I found, see them below!
Let’s first talk tradition
What does this whole “Something Blue” traditional mean anyways? Let us discuss! Each item in this poem represents a good-luck token for the bride. If she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy. “Something old” symbolizes continuity with the bride’s family and the past. “Something new” means optimism and hope for the bride’s new life ahead. “Something borrowed” is usually an item from a happily married friend or family member, whose good fortune in marriage is supposed to carry over to the new bride. The borrowed item also reminds the bride that she can depend on her friends and family. As for the colorful item, blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. In ancient Rome, brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, and fidelity. Christianity has long dressed the Virgin Mary in blue, so purity was associated with the color. Before the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, “Marry in blue, lover be true.”

I’m impressed, I must say. Genuinely rarely do I encounter a blog that is both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve got hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is some thing that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am particularly pleased that I stumbled across this in my search for some thing relating to this.
