At Weddings by Rachel we love tradition. This is why we live by the old rhyme “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a Silver Sixpence in your shoe.”
This rhyme originated in the Victorian times and is still practiced by some to this day. It is thought to bring luck to the bridal couple.
However, adding something blue can be very difficult if you are not incorporating blue into your wedding theme. Therefore, here are 5 clever ways to add something blue and keeping it hidden!
- Wedding Garters
These can be found in all colours nowadays and you can get them personalised too. Look for one that incorporates blue ribbons or one that is completely blue if you prefer.
This can be a great addition and if you wear a startling pair of sapphire earrings, or a beautiful bracelet with one sapphire or blue stone, it will not clash with your colour scheme.
Although your flower scheme will match your wedding colours, why not add something like a blue butterfly into the bouquet? This will not stand out too much but will be a very pretty addition for your something blue.
- Hair Combs and Tiaras
A lot of hair combs and tiaras have the odd blue gems in them. This won’t be too overpowering when worn and will blend in well if you are going for a sparkling affair. If you’re having made to order, ask your maker to add in just one or two blue gems to wear your something blue all day.
Carry a blue handkerchief with you to wipe away any tears. This can be held, put into your bag or given to somebody to look after. If you don’t fancy all blue, why not get one embroidered in blue with your wedding date?
