Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue Inspirations

Carrying on from the old customs of something old, new, borrowed and blue, we would like to share some inspirational ideas which include these traditional aspects but with a modern twist. The thinking behind the saying is that Something borrowed lets you borrow good wishes from others, blue relates to love, purity and faithfulness. Apparently, if you’d like extra luck add a silver sixpence to your shoe.

To include the something old you could opt for a vintage dress, timeless style and sentiment, and almost borrowed if you disregard the price tag that is. These traditions have become more personal over time with blue stitching added to the bridal gown including the date of the wedding. Or a small locket with family photos attached to your bouquet to include the something old and maybe borrowed tradition.

Another way of including something old and borrowed would be to borrow a grandmothers or aunts shawl or scarf for some of the outdoor photos, this adds a very personal touch and maybe even something blue! Another idea could be to wear some antique jewellery pieces from a loved family member. We have used this technique of redesigning jewellery for many of our brides, such a lovely idea to have these sentimental accessories and it can be carried forward to the next generation.

Some other ideas for the something new and blue traditions is opting for some subtle blue elements in the wedding gown, a blue garter or even blue shoes a la Carrie Bradshaw. Or what about a fabulous blue cake ?

Top trending Wedding Hair Vines for 2020
Top trending Wedding Hair Vines for 2020

July 14, 2020

Wedding hair vines are very on trend this year, but if you are asking yourself “What’s a wedding hair vine?”, let us explain. Wedding hair vines are long, flexible head pieces made on thin twisted wire that can be shaped to any design required to suit your hairstyle. Wedding hair vines generally don’t have any combs attached to them and can easily be pinned into your hair wherever needed. This gives them the flexibility to be worn with many different hairstyles.
So, how should you wear your wedding hair vine...
First, decide on how you will be wearing your hair; will you be wearing your hair down, in a long loose braid? Hair vines also look fantastic in half up half down hairstyles. Simply secure into the section of your hair that is pinned up, and then gentle curve down through your loose waves. If you are wearing your hair in a loose plait, the hair vine can simply be plaited into your hair as it is done.
As we mentioned hair vines are a very big trend for this year and here are our top selling wedding hair vines for 2020 so far...

Nadine Pearl Cluster and Silver Wedding Hair Clip
Why are Pearls so associated with Weddings? Bridal Headpieces & Wedding Jewellery

June 19, 2020

Pearls are very often a popular wedding day gift for a bride, but why are pearls associated with weddings, you may be thinking!
Nadine Pearl Cluster Wedding Hair Clip
Thanks to their fabulous shimmering iridescence, these organic little gems have always been highly prized throughout history, in fact, Cleopatra is said to have dissolved a pearl in a glass of wine before drinking it, simply to show Marc Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire country in just one meal, and the ancient Greeks associated the pearl with love, marriage, and marital harmony. During the crusades knights wore pearls on the battlefield, believing they held magic powers that would protect them from harm. In the 1500s pearls were so highly regarded that countries across Europe passed laws forbidding anyone apart from nobility to wear them. And even to this day, they are still a popular choice for royalty, especially at weddings. Queen Elizabeth II wore them at her wedding and over in the USA, Jacqueline Bouvier wore a strand the day she became Mrs Kennedy, which was almost royalty.
Are you considering making pearls part of your wedding? When it comes time to make your pearl selection, what do you need to know? Let us help...
