3 top ideas for your Something Blue


The common saying goes, ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe’. If you are big on weddings, or have married yourself before, you may be familiar with these words. However, you may be clueless at to why they have become a very popular bridal tradition. Originally from an old English rhyme, this saying tokens items of love that both family and friends would traditionally gift you, the bride, on your wedding day.

Whilst many brides usually get gifted something blue, many wedding traditions are changing, with many choosing their very own. Many are now trying to incorporate this tradition in different ways, so we have put together some of the most unique ‘Something Blue’s’ that we have seen on our wedding travels.

Blue wedding cake

Traditionally white, many couples are now opting for a colourful wedding cake. A unique idea that we at wedding car hire have recently seen is a blue wedding cake as the ‘something blue’. Even if you do not wish to have the whole of your wedding cake in blue, you can just decorate it with blue icing or accessories.

Wedding favours

Your wedding favours are a way to thank your guests for helping you with the planning process and attending your wedding. Some couples now choose to gift their guests with a blue gift bag as their ‘something blue’. This does not have to be expensive, you can just purchase a cotton canvas bag and dye it blue yourself.

Transport

Why not consider hiring a blue wedding car as your ‘something blue’? This means that both bride and couple can enjoy it, instead of the norm which is just the bride.

We at wedding car hire have numerous cars available to hire around the UK. Locations include, Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh and many more.
