Wedding Superstitions – Something Blue

Today is Wedding day #26 – Yes I have been posting wedding facts , tips , links and doodles for 26 days. Only 4 more days of June Weddings -hope you had fun and maybe learned something new.  Something Old,New, Borrowed and Blue  Martha Stewart Weddings We’ve all heard this rhyme used when someone gets married, but what does it mean? Wearing “something old” represents the bride’s past, while the “something new” symbolizes the couple’s happy future. The bride is supposed to get her “something borrowed” from someone who is happily married in the hope that some of that person’s good fortune rubs off on her. “Something blue” denotes fidelity and love. Many brides like Me -uses a blue garter as part of our attire #26       Tossing the wedding garter is an old time held tradition.

Sundays Wedding Design

Today ‘s Wedding Doodle is  A Wedding Invitation-   When should we send out our wedding invitations? Traditionally, invitations go out six to eight weeks before the wedding — that gives guests plenty of time to clear their schedules and make travel arrangements if they don’t live in town. If it’s a destination wedding, give guests more time and send them out three months ahead of time. When should we make the deadline for RSVPs? Make your RSVP date two to three weeks before your wedding date — this will allow enough time for you to get a final head count Need more info – Invitations Do ‘s and Dont’s Pinterest Boards to check out-  Pinterest * Have fun and Match your wedding theme with your invitations.  I went with a simple one sheet invitation on heavy weight paper with a pretty font and matched our colors with the invite.   Thinking about making them yourself – check out the tons of website to help you do just that.
