You know the tradition but did you know that the catchy little phrase comes from an Old English rhyme…“Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”. The infamous something blue stands for purity, love and fidelity. We’re not saying we’re superstitious, but we’re also not willing to risk it. ;) So we’re taking a look at creative ways to work the good luck tradition into your big day. Bring on the blue!
Make a Sentimental Gesture
Create a beautiful symbol of love and unity simply using a little blue thread. Embroider custom monograms in your gown and your groom’s tux in a secret hidden spots only the two of you know. Or, like our founder, Tricia, have a hidden blue heart sewn into your dress as a symbol of everlasting love. Although it’s a day to share with family and friends, keeping a few special little things between the two of you creates an extra special bond on the most special of days.
Whether it’s a vintage family heirloom handed down for generations or a newly gifted piece from a loved one, adding a touch of blue into your jewelry selection is an elegant and sentimental way to highlight the beloved tradition.
Adding a touch of blue ribbon to bouquets is a beautiful way to incorporate something blue! There is something so romantic about fine crystal blue ribbons swaying in the breeze.
Have Your Bridesmaids Carry on the Tradition
Having your bridesmaids wear a beautiful shade of blue is the perfect way to embrace the tradition! From the palest of baby blues to beautiful, classic navy there is a blue for every taste. And who doesn’t look amazing in blue!
…..And if we’re being completely honest, our favorite pick…..
No better way to celebrate the ideas of purity, love and fidelity than literally walking in your words. Your chosen beauties will forever hold those steps down the aisle, those first dance moments and those running off into the sunset memories! Every time you look at them you will relive the magic of your day.
So stand tall #SoleSurvivors and know we’ll be with you every step of the way. You focus on the moment that will become memories of a lifetime, and we’ll focus on soothing your soles.

And we love Grace Loves Lace. The romantic Australian bridal label creating exquisite wedding designs for the modern, free-spirited woman with style, substance and passion. While each creation is stunningly beautiful, it is, perhaps, the one line in their bio that had us swooning… “always bet everything on love.”.
