Welcome to the New Year!
2015 is here and so many people are making plans for the months to come. Several couples in my friend group and my friend’s friend groups recently became engaged over the holidays. Wedding planning is beginning. It is a little crazy with all the wedding talk to see those I have grown up with finding the love of their life, leaving their families and “putting a ring on it”. It seems getting engaged was the major “fad” this holiday season and I wish all the best to those planning their wedding!
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Are you stuck on what to do? Start with something old. Often this is an item that has been passed down through the family, however, if the item handed down through the generations is something you can wear, like a grandmother’s silver or gold chain or a relative’s broach, it could most likely be hidden in a fold in the dress and would be an easy find for something old. Even a piece of jewelry given to you as a child could be considered something old. Something new is easy; the wedding dress and the shoes are typically new. Something borrowed; try jewelry. A necklace, bracelet, anklet, or earrings are the perfect item to fulfill this wedding day cliché. Raid your mother’s or best friend’s jewelry box until you find the perfect borrowed item. Just make sure you ask first. And finally, something blue can be much more difficult if you are not having blue as a wedding colour. Put a little blue clip in your hair or hide something blue under you dress; no matter how small it is, it is still something blue.
