Something Blue

As a Bridal Stylist, I am privy to being involved in very intimate details of a Brides special day. There are traditions that are cultural, that I enjoy learning about and experiencing. Some are religious, which I find fascinating. Others are family traditions like using a grandmothers wedding band during the ceremony. Then there are traditions we grew up hearing about and only learn their true meanings till our own wedding day like “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”. (“Something blue” represents love, purity and fidelity.) I’d like to share a “Blue” trend that I am seeing more often and I really love.

Lots of Brides are taking the “Something Blue” part of the tradition and having their wedding dates, names and dates & initials and dates embroidered on the hem of their dresses in the lining.

I think this is so special and instantly makes it an heirloom. The above photos are a nice simple way to commemorate your wedding day. Here are some fancier options.

Whatever your style, try this new take on your “Something blue” and make new memories and traditions.
