For those of you who play into the wedding tradition,"Something old, Something new, something borrowed, something blue" what was or is your blue item?

Mine was my husband's shirt. We did a shade of blue for my groom and groomsmen in a country wedding. Not sure if it counts, but it's what I used. :) I'm curious about everyone else, if you could post as a palette or swatch and add a photo that'd be terrific.

Now that I think about it, I don't think we had anything blue at our wedding. Is that bad luck?

nah! I honestly don't think I really meant to have anything blue, it just worked out that way. I didn't have a big traditional wedding either. It was a blast though. When did you get married?

I got married in Jan 09 in the Bahamas. A destination wedding (from DC area), but a lot of family and friends actually made it down for the wedding. We felt very loved :)

How about you Molly?

Oh how fun! I was just putting together a post for the wedding blog on a tropical wedding. We were married May 2005 on my parents 15 acres, a country wedding. We were engaged for three years and planned it in 3-weeks. Figure that one out. LOL A simple outside wedding, but gorgeous setting.

Awesome, outside weddings are the best - when it doesn't rain!

Does blue help then? Hmmm, I honeslty think that it doesn’ t, but why not give it a try?

Mine was the blue lettering on the butt of my white underwear that said "bride." My sister gave it to me for the bachelorette party.

Practical Glamour

Depending on whether you believe in superstitions or not, peacock feathers are believed to bring bad luck (I'm not absolutely sure, but I think there might be an Indian myth about it - Indian from India, not native American). Why not incorporate the colour without the feather???

I met my husband at a long underwear themed party, and so my something blue was some tie-dyed long underwear I wore under my dress during out outdoor ceremony. :)

I want to wear a short dress and would love if my something blue was a net slip beneath the skirt, barely showing - like in this picture

I'm having my maiden name initials embroidered with blue thread onto white material. My mom will be sewing it inside the bodice of my gown.

I had a blue nail polish on my toes :) Was planning on having blue heels, but finding them was impossible!

The first time I married I had a blue garter. The second time I wore a blue dress and the third time I wore blue heart shaped stone earrings. There won't be a fourth.

Mine was a diamond and sapphire necklace - a gift from my husband in June 1999.
Ours was a traditional, Catholic, church wedding.

I ain't showing you no photo of me wearing 'em but my "something blue" was my underwear! ;-) It was white but said "BRIDE" on the butt, and my sister gave them to me at my bachelorette party and I decided at the last second that'd be my "something blue."

Ok, so I've been thinking about this and I want to say something here:

I know what it's like to an awkward teenager trying hard to relate and interact with other people in an effort to appear "normal" and be accepted. I know all about being mentally ill and striving to appear healthy and functional. And I know what it's like to fail miserably at both. I've made tons of mistakes and made stupid decisions numerous times. So I do not expect anyone to be perfect. However, I'd like to think that all of us here hold decency as a common value and that we strive/will strive to uphold it. When something goes from a mistake/stupid decision to just plain aberrant behavior, it oversteps the line of decency and becomes an offense and ain't nobody havin' that! While Clearcreek6 and behappy13 may have some incredibly annoying tendencies but I don't think they've reached the "Caroline" level of batsh** insane behavior which takes a member way past the point of any kind of redemption. I've decided not to hold it against them. Just act like individuals with a modicum of common sense from now on and the wrath of CL won't be brought down upon you!

I really friggin' wish the best for most members of this site, including clearcreek6 and behappy13. I don't want to see anyone hurt or bothered by something that is happening or has happened here because we get enough bullsh** in reality.

I will stop rambling and not making a ton of sense. Let's love colors n stuff!!!!!!!!!1!



Mei, this means so much to me. I know i have been annoying and sometimes rude. I have been trying really hard to do better. u saying all that makes feel like she's been thru what I've been thru. Thank you so much and i am truly sorry for being so annoying. I am taking all of your advice and butterflyminder's and trying to get more familiar with the site. Thank you again for being forgiving. I will try my hardest to not be annoying.

I'm closing the book on this whole matter. Ignoring them is how I'm dealing with it. It's what I should've done to begin with.

But if any of that behavior I've heard about crops up again...I will not stand for that. No way.

In the meantime...

I can deal with annoying kids how I always do: Ignore them :D
