blue has been connected to weddings for years. because the Virgin Mary was always depicted in blue, it was said that the color was a symbol of purity and fidelity. it became a popular wedding dress color up until the early 19th century. "marry in blue, lover be true" is another popular wedding proverb.
my something blue was my shoes. i searched long and hard for a pair that fit my style. this light blue pair with a fabric flower did the trick.
just for fun, i thought i'd share the rest of my good luck pieces. a bracelet i bought for myself when i graduated college served as my something old, a reminder that i could accomplish anything i set my mind to. KJB surprised me with a strand of pearls on the wedding day which was my something new. in my pockets i carried two hankies, one borrowed from my mom that had belonged to my great-grandmother and one borrowed from my aunt that had been passed down as a wedding hankie in her family for years.
what was your something blue on your wedding day?
