“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in her shoe.” Blue has long been a colour associated with marriage and weddings. From the use of blue sapphires as wedding rings dating back to medieval times to this Old English rhyme suggesting a superstitious bride should keep something blue with her during the wedding ceremony to ensure a lasting marriage. We’re focusing on another semi-precious stone with a highly-valued vibrancy of blue: lapis lazuli. Lapis blue is one of the leading colours in this Spring’s global fashion trend. So we’ve put together some great ways to feature this Pantone Lapis Blue colour for the bride and groom who want to follow one of history’s most long-lasting wedding trends!
Pantone Lapis Blue
A great way to add your “something blue” is by sneaking a pop of colour under your dress with a pair of fabulous shoes. These Manolo Blahniks are just the thing – and you’ll have invested more than just “a sixpence in her shoe” so perhaps your fortune will be that much greater if you wear them during your wedding!
Coordinating the groomsmen’s suits with the bridesmaid’s dresses would be a great way to stylize the look of your ceremony and the photo album that captures it with a nice symmetry of colour. A luxe slim-fit, well-tailored suit is not only a classic cut to flatter any of your men, but opting for blue over traditional black tuxes is a contemporary trend in menswear. We definitely don’t mind seeing our boys looking as slick as Ryan Gosling on the red carpet! We’ve paired up the ladies with a tea-length, casual silhouette in rich lapis.
Don’t forget about the décor – your table will look absolutely royal too with Lapis-coloured glass goblets for your guests.
