Marnie as something blue. . .

November 6, 2010

I just noticed this recent blog entry at the "Rules of Engagement" blog. I love the range of suggestions for satisfying that 'something' blue tradition, including our Breeziway Marnie!

Monday’s Montage: Something Blue

We’ve all heard the saying, “”Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe” and if you’re a classic bride then you will probably want to follow the tradition for good luck. According to an article called, ” Wedding Tradition: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” on Ezine articles, “the color blue has been connected to weddings for centuries as a symbol of love, modesty, fidelity, good luck, purity and loyalty.”

When I got married it seemed the new thing was to use a blue garter belt, and I unenthusiastically partook in the overdone trend. I wish now that I had done something a bit more personal and thus memorable. If you’re having a hard time finding the perfect blue accent, consider one of these more unique options. Dress things up with a simple pop of color surrounded by pave diamonds in a pair of sapphire earrings, or in a sapphire ring. For the more daring, “Carrie Bradshaw-esque” bride, take a risk with a blue feather headpiece and tie it in with a beautiful pair of fancy blue shoes and a sparkly blue purse. If your bridesmaid dresses are blue, consider harmonizing by adding a matching sash of the same color to your gown. A soft blue bolero would also provide a great cover-up for a fall or winter wedding, as well as give a romantic touch to your attire. Finally, if you want a small accent, just add a blue ring-bearer pillow into the mix at your ceremony. You’re “something blue” is a fun and easy opportunity to add a touch of fun to your big day while also participating in a timeless tradition.
