Wedding traditions are flying out the window and more people are choosing a route where anything goes. Common rituals are being replaced with movie-themed weddings, funny cake toppers and colorful bridal dresses. And let’s face it, no one wants to watch another awkward garter removal.
However, there is one over a century-old tradition that’s still holding strong and we’re all about it. According to an old English rhyme, four tokens — something old, new, borrowed, and blue — is supposed to bring the bride good luck on her day. And really, who doesn’t want good luck?
But instead of keeping the color mostly hidden, brides are going bolder. Whether its wearing blue or making it a general theme, check out some awesome “something blue” themes others are doing to keep the tradition strong, over a hundred years later.
