CustomMade for the Bride, Part 4: Something Blue
Something old, something new,
Something borrowed, something blue,
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.
Although the color white is strongly associated with weddings in Western cultures, blue has also been worn by brides since Ancient Roman times through the late 19th century, a practice that has led to proverbs like, “Marry in blue, lover be true.” Here are a few pieces of custom jewelry to get you in the mood for blue to round out your custom bridal ensemble.
