Photography, but we’re warning you, there are some seriously adorable people and animals inside!
Words from The Vendors
With this shoot, we wanted to incorporate the idea of “something borrowed, something blue.” We loved the idea of a modern twist on a vintage setting. The blue willow dining plates and tea sets were collected from local antique markets and we paired it with the modern and glamorous sequin tablecloth. The mismatched bridesmaids in floral pattern dresses helped to set the stage in this elegant setting and we love that the miniature pony’s name was actually “blue!” How fitting!
We all know the saying “Something old, something new, something borrowed something blue”, but do you know what it’s all about? Something old represents the bride’s past while something new signifies the bride’s future with her new hubby. Something borrowed typically comes from a close relative or friend who is happily married in hopes that their good fortune will rub off on the newlyweds. Last but definitely not least, something blue represents fidelity and love!
If you’re still looking for the perfect “something blue” for you we have some blue ideas to offer: garter, bouquet charm, shoes, rhinestone decals, lingerie, dress labels, jewelry, hair combs, veil, pins, handkerchiefs, and shawls, all of which (and more!) can be found on Etsy’s something blue page here.
