Wedding inspiration: Traditions

Well, I am not really into the traditions and always want to be innovative with everything, but with my wedding I fall into a pattern of traditions. So I have just like everyone a cake despite the nice alternative of cupcakes and our dog can not make his entrance at the wedding even though it is totally hip.

I have known the following verse for so long that I would not even know where I first heard it, I know one thing, I have never heard it as often as from the moment I am engaged. I am therefore determined to stick to it, because it brings prosperity and happiness to your marriage and every bit helps :)

"something old
something new
something borrowed
something blue
and a silver sixpence in your shoe"

Well, I could already mark the old, new and borrowed and also the silver coin was found quickly, but with the blue I have some more problems. I do not have blue colors in my wedding theme and therefore can not process it anywhere. Well, after some searching, I found several nice ways to be able to process the blue without it being very noticeable.

I'm curious about your something blue ........
