Feeling Blue....

With Wedding Season in full swing I am sure many of you are thinking about those last minute items. Like bridesmaids gifts, your accessories and the traditional Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue...So as a little inspiration of what you could do to add some blue into your wedding day, I picked a few photos to start your thinking.

But first I know you might be wondering "what is the significance of the Something Blue?"

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 the most popular color for wedding gowns! As evidenced in the
proverbs like "Marry in Blue, Lover be true"

Necklace, Purse, Shoes, Earrings, Compact, Cocktail Ring, Panties, Hair Flower
Forget the french pedicure and go for blue on your toes!

So be sure to add something blue to your wedding day, it may just be a silly superstition but in today's day and age we can all use any extra help we can get!
