It Starts with a Square

All in the Details

BY Chelsey Handley

Looking back on your wedding day, memories come back to you in a million little moments like toasting drinks with your bridesmaids and groomsmen, tying your tie or slipping into your heels, sharing your vows or Uncle Al ‘cutting a rug’ on the dance floor. That’s why you work so hard during the preparation phase choosing the color of the napkins, calligraphy on the invitations, and the menu served to your guests. At the end of the day, the essence of what is ‘your wedding day’ is wrapped up in all the little details, and those details matter. 

The saying ‘Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue’ seems like a perfect way to remember the little things when it comes to celebrating your love story. 

So how can you uniquely remember the past with something old? Perhaps you celebrate the past with a piece of jewelry or cuff links passed down through generations for the bride or groom to wear. You could collect old photos of family on both the bride and groom’s side to celebrate families uniting, past and present. Maybe you still have your great grandmother’s sofa that can be used as seating in a photo booth or during a cocktail hour. Or consider remembering past dates, creatively showcasing them for your friends to see during the reception! There are so many ways to incorporate the love of the past into this special day of your life.

It’s easy to embrace something new as you start this amazing new journey together! Consider having your vows printed on canvas to hang in your new home. On your wedding day, give a gift that represents your appreciation for your significant other or start a new tradition on your wedding day to continue on each anniversary! Equally important, something borrowed should be a sentimental token incorporated into the day. Fabric from a relative’s gown could be used to hold your flower bouquet, or an embroidered pillow of a friend could be used to carry the rings. Getting married during the colder months? Borrow a chic cape to wear leaving the reception!

Adding something blue is a beautiful way to add color to your wedding day! Did you know the color blue represents “fidelity and love’s purity” according to this famous rhyme? A handkerchief with blue monogram, or a sapphire piece of jewelry could be used to really spruce up your attire. Consider a blue garter or getaway car to make a statement!
