something blue

"something blue" - "As for the colorful item, blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. In ancient Rome, brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, and fidelity. Christianity has long dressed the Virgin Mary in blue, so purity was associated with the color. Before the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, "Marry in blue, lover be true."

a tad interesting wouldnt you say? so there simply are too many blue items to post so i will be posting my favorite "blue" things in these categories, wedding dress, bridesmaid's dress, jewelery, centerpiece, bouquet, candy/favor and cake ... and that will just have to be enough cause this post could be either the biggest collage of the century or the longest post ever!

i am a minimalist at heart so these both really appeal to me personally. the bottom photo was taken from here

love these earthy favor of the birds. jordan almonds are that much more delish in color. budget saving tip .... if you have the time, or shall i say your timing is appropriate stock up on blue candy at easter! it will save you loads to do this favor if your wedding is at another time of year. one of our clients offered this favor in a different style see that post here

One of Kathy's favorite varieties is blue thistle. We always joke that when she gets married again (to the same husband, of course), there is going to be thistle everywhere! By far the best blue flower out there!
