Our top picks for your something blue


From midnight to dusty, blues of all shades were among the top wedding colours of autumn, but this popular primary colour also sits at the heart of one of the best-known wedding superstitions.

The ‘Something Borrowed, Something Blue’ rhyme has a long history on the wedding scene. It’s an age-old proverb that dates back to Victorian England and, even to this day, has a huge part to play in weddings all over the world. Thought to bring good luck and be the secret to a long, happy marriage, the rhyme can leave brides frantically searching for accessories that fit the bill.

Finding your ‘something blue’ can be a particularly difficult box to tick, but what’s the meaning behind this part of the rhyme? The Knot shares their answer:

“While wearing or carrying ‘something blue’ was also meant to deflect that pesky Evil Eye, the color blue stands for love, purity and fidelity—three key qualities for a solid marriage. The traditional ‘something blue’ was often a blue garter worn beneath the bride’s white dress. But you don’t have to wear ‘something blue’ to ward off wicked spirits…”
