Come on Fairies, you know how it goes. ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something …’ so damn fresh it’ll blow this colourful tradition right out of the water.
So why blue?!
Prior to the late 19th century, blue (not white) was actually the preferred colour for brides on their wedding day. Its connotations with the Virgin Mary and her depiction in Christian art granted the colour a symbolic meaning of purity and fidelity.
To honour this age old tradition on your big day, we’ve put together a list of our go-to something blues. The options are endless!
