Something Blue: Petticoat

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a six pence in her shoe. Almost all brides have heard this old Victorian good luck wedding custom and most brides try to incorporate it into their wedding day. There are a lot of ideas floating around as to why blue was integrated into this rhyme but I like the thought, that in ancient times the color blue was a sign of faithfulness and loyalty; two traits I believe a bride wants to exude on her wedding day. Here is an idea on how to incorporate this lucky color in your wedding:

Petticoat: The word petticoat never fails to make me think of the red petticoat Rhett buys for Mammy in Gone with the Wind. Take a page out of Mammy's book by wearing a blue petticoat under your dress as opposed to the traditional white. With each rustling step you take down the aisle, only you will know that it is made by a petticoat in the lucky color blue.
