5 ‘Something Blue’ for Your White Wedding
‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue’
Heard of this phrase? It comes from the Old English rhyme, “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”. It mentions the four good luck charms (plus a sixpence to bring prosperity) a bride should include somewhere in her wedding outfit or carry with her on her wedding day. If you are looking for some inspiration to incorporate these four elements in your wedding, here are cool ideas for ‘Something Blue’:

Think of it this way – berries add an element of tartness to the wedding cake as well as satisfy the criteria of ‘Something Blue’! Add mulberries and blueberries to your cake (can be the main flavour or even just a fruit topping) and make it look like a stunning (and delicious) piece of art.
