Wedding Dresses – Something Borrowed Or Something Blue
“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” This could be your wedding dress! Wedding dresses can be all four, and of course, it can be blue.
Eliminate the cost of the wedding dress
In the current economic situation, brides have their portfolios firmly in their hands. Sure, they want fantastic wedding dresses, but who says they can’t rent or hire one? Renting or borrowing a wedding dress or a bridesmaid’s dress gives the bride more flexibility to use the money saved for other purposes or perhaps for the honeymoon, while at the same time maintaining the old tradition of something old or borrowed.
A rented or borrowed dress may require some changes or additions; that is if the owner agrees with your plan to change the hem or add some decorative details to the dress. Bridal shops charge a minimal fee for alterations and cleaning. The minimum you can spend on a rented or borrowed dress is less than $50, depending on the amount and type of changes or decorations you want to add.
If you are not the sentimental type and your budget is limited, rent or hire your wedding dress. The probable donors for your wedding dress are your older married sister, your twin sister, your aunt, your cousin, or your best friend if you want to have a fashionable wedding dress. You can borrow your mother’s wedding dress if you want a classic wedding dress. There is no need to worry too much about maintaining a beautiful wedding dress that you have borrowed or rented, although there are services available to maintain wedding dresses for a long time.
Wedding dresses are traditionally white, but there is no law limiting the choice of color for the wedding dress. You can wear a blue dress – or a monochrome blue dress. Blue symbolizes faith, loyalty, power, and protection. It is said that people who love light blue are analytical and practical, while those who prefer dark blue are independent, responsible, and intelligent. You are all of these if you love blue, light, and dark.
Blue is perfect for a summer wedding. At this time of year, the sky is blue and the sea is crystal blue. Your blue wedding dress reflects the carefree spirit of the exciting summer days. So why not blue? Lace, taffeta, satin, and other luxurious fabrics are also available in various shades of blue, so the bride who wants a blue wedding dress will have plenty of ideas for wedding dresses.
The color blue can make the wedding table decoration, the cake, and the flowers shine. Light blue is a cool color, while dark blue is dramatic. Use the colors for the effect by combining them with white and other colors that go well with blue, a color that also symbolizes love, fidelity, and modesty.
What do brides borrow for their wedding? It can be anything: jewelry or accessories, a garter, or a wedding dress. This tradition dates back to Victorian times in England. Brides borrowed from happily married couples to bring happiness to their marriage. The loan is very personal. You borrow something from people you can trust over the years; this is the idea of borrowing something.
So here comes the beautiful bride, with something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue!
