Martha Stewart Weddings says, “Blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. In ancient Rome, brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, and fidelity. Christianity has long dressed the Virgin Mary in blue, so purity was associated with the color. Before the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, "Marry in blue, lover be true."
There are many creative ways to wear or carry “something blue” on your wedding day. Here are a few of my favorites:
For my own wedding day, “something blue” was incorporated with my “something old”. My mother snipped a piece of her own wedding gown and had the married monogram of my groom and I, along with our wedding date, embroidered on it with blue embroidery floss. The embroidered swatch was sewn into my wedding gown.
