A Fresh Take On Something Blue

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Almost every bride-to-be has heard the adage “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” What they might not realize is that this tradition was originally a Victorian custom for “good luck.”

Victorians ascribed meaning to all kinds of things – flowers, gifts, dances. The significance of blue and weddings, however, is one that goes much further back in history. In ancient times and across cultures, the color blue has been associated with faithfulness, loyalty, love, and modesty, traits which, during the time, a bride-to-be wished to exude on her wedding day. In fact, before the Victorian era, it was not uncommon for wedding dresses to be blue.

Today, brides embrace the tradition, making it their own by incorporating the classic “good luck” wedding color in some traditional and some unexpected ways!
