Wearing something blue on your wedding day has been a tradition for the longest time—dating back to Victorian times. It’s part of the rhyme that goes, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe” that surfaced in 1871 in the short story titled Marriage Superstitions and the Miseries of a Bride Elect. The shade of blue is believed to symbolise loyalty, faithfulness and purity and is usually the garter.
Today, many people still wear a blue garter on their big day to keep the tradition alive. This time, however, Tatler lists down different ways to wear blue accessories to draw in good luck on your most special day.
1. Blue Heels
First thing’s first—the shoes you’ll be walking down the aisle with is just as important as the gown you’re wearing on your wedding day. You may consider comfort and style, but you might as well think of the colour. Instead of slipping on glittering heels, wear a pair in the lighter shades like baby blue, powder blue or cornflower.
