something blue…

As the old saying goes, ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’. While some wedding traditions have slowly fallen by the wayside, this is one which even the modern bride still follows. The first three are easier to achieve but the something blue requires a bit more creativity. If your colour scheme allows it then why not choose blue flowers like hydrangeas or just a few small individual blue flowers in the bouquet. 

For a beautiful contrast to a white or ivory dress, choose a blue satin sash or blue shoes, which of course immediately reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City and those famous Manolo Blahniks. If blue isn’t in your colour scheme then why not get the date of your wedding or initials stitched into the inside of your dress or pin a pretty blue vintage brooch to your dress. Or why not take inspiration from Kate Moss and wear a pair of shoes with a blue insole such as the Fifi collection from Filippa Scott.
