11 Jul Old, new, borrowed, blue: Wedding Traditions and Trends
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue…
This traditional rhyme has been recited at weddings near and far. It outlines four objects that a bride adds to her wedding outfit or carries on her big day that will bring good luck to her marriage and the wedding itself. Whether it is in jewelry, attire or accessories, see how brides in 2016 have been displaying these good luck charms.
Tie or pin a photo of the bride’s parents or grandparents to the base of the wedding bouquet.
Whether a brooch, hair pin or bracelet, wear a breathtaking piece of vintage jewelry on your wedding day.
Made from the mother of the bride’s wedding gown, this pearl-adorned clutch makes for a beautiful wedding day accessory. This “something old” is sentimental and gorgeous.
Always a fabulous reason to get a few new pieces of jewelry, snag something original in the form of diamonds.
A veil from a relative of the bride or a best friend is the perfect “something borrowed.” It symbolizes that marriage doesn’t mean the end of old relationships.
Lipstick from the mother of the bride is a unique, quirky borrowed item.
Aquamarine and sapphire – blue stones in gorgeous settings of all sorts add a bluish hue without distracting from the bride and the dress.
Blue shoes add a classic elegance to your otherwise all-white look.
2016 has seen some subtle trends like this light blue nail polish.
