For as long as we can remember, the old saying ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ has been ingrained into our minds when we hear the words wedding dress. As far as tradition goes, each item from the rhyme offers the opportunity for loved ones to contribute to the special day and to bless the bride.
The colour blue symbolises loyalty, purity and faithfulness. The century old tradition of having a little blue bow sewn into the hem of a wedding dress has now been reinterpreted into wearing blue jewellery, tying bouquets with blue ribbons, wearing blue bridal shoes and even blue accents on a veil. Today, many modern brides are taking ‘something blue’ to a whole new level by wowing their guests, walking down the aisle in a blue wedding dress.
Blue wedding dresses are a great alternative to the traditional white wedding dress. It screams individuality and adds a personal flare to the brides dream day, especially for the bride looking to tap into her inner romance. Reimagine the colour blue in a one-of-a-kind showstopper wedding dress. There is no silhouette that won’t do the colour justice, just make sure you choose the right silhouette for your body shape whether you’re after an A-line, ball gown or sheath style.
Since the colour blue is associated with being calm and tranquil, why not opt for feather-weight fabrics like tulle, chiffon and organza.
A form-fitting bodice paired with an A-line or mermaid skirt made from layers of light fabric will flow whimsically as you walk down the aisle. If you want coverage on your arms, these fabrics work beautifully by adding a sheer element to sleeve styles like flutter, flounce, bell and blouson.
Allow the softness and sheerness of fabrics bring out the true beauty in the colour blue to symbolise love.
Build up the texture on your wedding dress with gathers, pleats, ruffles and frills from the waistline or on the hemline. For a dreamy yet daring touch, consider elements of fringing, tassels and feathers. Accents of embellishment, floral lace and embroidery can add a breath of fresh air to your wedding dress, and it utters romance. You don’t have to stick to one shade of blue. Cooler and deeper shades can balance one another and create illusional depth. You’re guaranteed to look effortless, chic and feeling blue in the best way possible.
