I love this post – thanks for sharing! 

I haven’t thought of what I will wear that is old, new, borrowed or blue. 

On the subject of how blue was worn by brides, I was going through photos, letters and old clippings of my grandmother’s and found her wedding announcement from the 1940s.  In the announcement was a description of the day, the guests, who my grandparent’s Maid/Matron of Honor and best man were, and what she wore.  I was delighted to learn that she wore an Alice blue dress as her wedding dress.  I only wish I had a photo of it but since it was during WW II and there were rations and shortages of film, there aren’t any but I was so happy to learn the details of her wedding.  I haven’t bought my dress yet – maybe it’s time to revive this tradition?
