Throughout the 19th century, workers were typically paid on a Saturday evening. The majority would spend the remainder of the weekend having a grand ol’ time and by the time Monday rolled by, well…they weren’t really up to work. That’s where the term Blue Monday stems from.
I, on the other hand, have always loved blue. It conjures up beautiful scenes of the ocean, summer skies and Allium Bulbs. In Ancient Rome brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, fidelity and purity.
Blue is also known as a lucky charm – hence the term Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue…
Now this bride didn’t just wear something blue, she wore everything blue: Her top consisted of a navy blue bodysuit that we dressed with the most beautiful hand-dyed beaded embroidered lace. The skirt was fashioned from layers of dove grey tulle and finished with a blue velvet belt and bow at the back.
The end result was absolutely exquisite. So stunning and striking and unique. It’s definitely one of my fave looks ever. And I doubt that will ever change.
