Something Blue

July 4, 2012








Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

The color blue has been associated with marriage for centuries. It is associated with faithfulness, loyalty, and purity. Brides in ancient Rome wore blue to symbolize love, fidelity, and modesty. Up until the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, “Marry in blue, lover be true.”

Today, brides have plenty of options for incorporating the color blue into their wedding. You might consider going with embroidery incorporated into your wedding gown, a blue brooch, a blue bouquet, or even a peacock feather!
