Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue Ideas

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. Something Old symbolizes a tie to your root while Something New represents a hopeful future. Something Blue stands for love and fidelity.
Apparently, if you’d like extra luck add a silver sixpence to your shoe.

Something Old

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.

Something Borrowed

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 so many jewellery pieces that are heirloom worthy, such a lovely idea to have these sentimental accessories and it can be carried forward to the next generation.

Something Blue & Something New

Some other ideas for the something new and blue traditions is opting for some subtle blue elements in the wedding gown, a blue garter, blue shoes a la Carrie Bradshaw, or even a piece of blue jewellery like our Astra 14k Gold Plated Aquamarine Necklace. Or what about a fabulous blue cake ?

Top trending Wedding Hair Vines This Year
Top trending Wedding Hair Vines This Year

July 30, 2021

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 so far...

Jodie Crystal Earrings
You’ll be wearing your statement earrings all say so not only do they need to be beautiful they need to be practical too. If you don’t often wear long drop earrings it might be a good idea to wear your earrings at home behind closed doors for a  few days to be sure you get on with them.
Consider any other accessories you'll be wearing or the details of your wedding dress when choosing your earrings. If your dress has embellishments, you might like to opt for earrings that coordinate with them.
Create balance
Don’t forget that your whole outfit should be balanced, if you want to wear a glamorous pair of statement earrings, don’t rush to wear lots of other accessories, alternatively if you opt for subtle wedding earrings you can then choose to wear lots of other pieces too, our Alisha, Freshwater Pearl Silver Earrings are perfect for this.
