Symbolism and tradition

The tradition of incorporating ‘something blue’ into a wedding day dates back to ancient times. The colour blue has long been associated with loyalty, fidelity and love, making it the perfect symbol for a couple embarking on a lifelong journey together. Incorporating ‘something blue’ is believed to bring good luck and blessings to the marriage.

Accessorising your bridal look with blue

‘Something blue’ often conjures up images of blue shoes, a blue garter or a blue bow hidden inside the lining of a wedding gown. There are many creative and unique ways to weave this tradition into your wedding look without overwhelming the rest of your chosen colour palette.

1. Blue bridal earrings

The addition of blue doesn’t need to be delicate. A classic pearl drop set of earrings can instantly transform with blue crystal details for a colour pop.

Traditions are ever evolving and we are firm believers that your wedding should be a reflection of you and your partner. For some brides, having ‘something old, something new, something borrowed something blue’ can be just as important as wearing a veil on their wedding day.

If a tradition doesn’t resonate with you, there’s no reason why you can’t create a new one or skip it altogether.

We have many brides who work with us to create heirloom pieces which they can pass onto their future daughters, sisters and loved ones. We love the sentiment and we love to be able to bring their vision to life.

Something blue’ for brides can include embroidery on the hem of your dress, blue shoes, blue lingerie, perhaps even a blue ribbon tied around your bouquet.

We love to incorporate tones of empire blue into our designs for its sophisticated charm, especially when set amongst antique silver and pearl details. The end result is a piece of beauty and regality.

Easily one of the most loved wildflowers, there’s something endlessly inspiring by the majestic blue blooms that grow in the woods and English gardens in springtime. Rich in pollen and nectar, the bluebell flower has an elusive scent reminiscent of the hyacinth flower.  It’s no wonder the bluebell is commonly used in bridal bouquets and corsages.

We believe in the language of flowers and the dewy bluebell speaks to everlasting love, humility and constancy.

We looked to this delightful blue flowering stem as the perfect source of inspiration for our latest ‘Something Blue’ hair pin set.

Looking for your 'Something blue'?

The rhyme that often comes to mind when planning your wedding is the age old, ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe’.  While a coin in your shoe wouldn’t be too comfortable, your ‘something blue’ also doesn’t need to look or feel out of place with the rest of your bridal look.

For lovers for deeper shades of blue, there’s a number of styles in our ‘something blue’ accessories collection that feature beautiful shades of empire blue. Our ARTEMIS, MAYBELLE, FONTAINE and LADY GREY are some of our popular styles for brides seeking that subtle and sophisticated ‘something blue’.

For brides seeking a pale shade of blue, the powder blue tones of the BLUEBELLS hair pin set blends beautifully against all hair colours and ivory or white wedding gowns. In designing these pins, we fell in love with the mineral – almost misty – tone of the crystal beads. Subtle, sweet and romantic, this shade of pale blue is a perfect match to soft gold or silver wiring.

Customisable to suit you

All styles in our collections are customisable to suit you. We love to style this set of two BLUEBELLS in multiples – think a set of four or six around a loose low set updo. For a look that’s more delicate and subtle, a set of two can be positioned to the side of a bun or half up hairstyle.

If you love this set, send us an email and can chat more about your bridal look.

We love how couples are redefining and personalising wedding traditions. It’s not uncommon to see brides skip the traditional bridal garter toss and instead choose to wear their garter for their wedding night or save it for the honeymoon. There are no rules when it comes to these things. You shouldn’t feel pressured at all to wear a garter or participate in the garter toss festivities if it makes you feel uncomfortable.

For other brides, the garter toss is something they’ve always imagined doing on their wedding day. Just like wearing a wedding veil or being walked down the aisle by their Mum, Dad or favourite person.

It’s always lovely when our brides tell us how their hearts broke when their beautiful handmade ‘toss’ garter was flung into the crowd.  That always makes us smile because we love knowing that the pieces we create are cherished so dearly.

The perfect 'something blue' for your wedding day

The DAPHNE lace wedding garter has been one of the most popular lace garters from the wedding garter collection. Completely hand-dyed, we love the soft blue tones of this pretty set.

Subtle and sweet, our garter is custom made to order with your measurements so it sits snug against your skin and won’t add bulk beneath the layers of your wedding dress. It features cascading floral lace details, finished with a gentle sprinkling of rhinestones.

The toss garter is delightful too and sold separately.

Be sure to send us your measurements so we can ensure a perfect fit.
