Bride Guide: It’s in the details

A tradition passed down from bride to bride has been in the books since basically the beginning of time. You know the Old English rhyme: “Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.” Each represents a form of good luck to walk down the aisle. Incorporating these details in your bouquet is a great way to start your happily ever after. Don’t sweat the details, we’re here to help you find the perfect way to add the little things into your special day.


“Something old” is meant to represent progression –after all, this is a forever type of deal. Whether it be a family heirloom or your sorority pin, make sure it carries a good story for optimal luck! We love how our bride, Gabby tied in her family heirlooms into her sash.

Adding “something new” to your wedding day is meant to represent hope. Debuting your new monogram with your new name is a great way to start this next chapter.  Our bride, Allison has a great idea to show them off in her bouquet slash.

Carrying “something borrowed” on your wedding day symbolizes happiness. A sweet idea is to borrow your mother’s or grandmother’s bouquet design. Recreating elements from their bridal flowers are sure to bring some big smiles to your big day. We love Amanda’s idea of borrowing a theme from the 1920s!

Holding on to “something blue”  is meant to represent love, purity, and fidelity. A touch of blue thistle into your bouquet creates the perfect pop of luck. We love this gorgeous combination of colors from our bride, Holly chose!
