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."

1. I don't care whether you support my campaign or not. Besides, thoughts of witch hunts, branding irons, welts, etc. are perverse, those pictures all come from you, I deny them. My ultimate rebuke, after a lot of explaining, and encouragement, tells someone I can't respect their actions because they violate my code of honor, after which I ignore them until they shape up. I don't go any further. So it's best you don't participate in the proposed action. If that is the way you think, I certainly would never hire you for faculty in a private school.

2. Damages in euros etc. I am not discussing. I'm talking about Art. Best practices, and originality. If someone doesn't care about those after mild and mannered discussion, when you confront them with date stamped proof of their actions, then I cannot further respect them as an artist. I'm free to speak my mind about that. That doesn't mean I want them to quit the site or go jump off a bridge, certainly not hang them. That just means I know how they behave going forward, and I'm free to form an opinion about them. People can form whatever opinion about me in return, based on my art, actions and deeds. I've worked hard to become an asset to this site. I like to think I have earned respect because of it. But I never count on it.

3. I don't care whether you could follow every minute of this discussion for two weeks. I don't care that my discussion about and endorsement of appropriate shame appears in a forum that appears around the world. That's what public forums are for. People should be able to speak their minds, right or wrong, and be able to freely make mistakes, or conversely, excellent points. When a topic has had no action for two weeks, you should understand it's a dead topic. If you revive it, you beat a dead horse, or you're trying to begin a new horse beating. I bet you didn't even look at the date. That is on you.

4. You are correct that memories attatched to shaming are carried for a long time, that is my point. "If my mother had caught me doing such a thing, she would have tanned my behind." "My old teacher would have had a heart attack." "My grandparents would be rolling in their graves." "My sister would have been so disappointed in me," etc. Those are generally good lessons, that we have internalized, admitted to, and grown past. Administered to us by people who care.

If you propose, I will support your shaming campaign so long as we can make branding irons, heat them up, and burn the imprints into the foreheads of those an angry mob decides are offenders.

Intellectual property claims, whether exact duplicates, are absolutely irrelevant given the nature of this site. Why in the world would you post things to a site like this hoping people, all over the world, would respect your rights? Some of them live in countries that do not have to by the way.

And how have you, save for your ego, been damaged by all this? You have lost millions of euros or dollars through plagarism on this site? Sorry, but you just seem too emotionally charged to be rational.

This is plain and simple, dangerous and stupid. Beyond that, as I have said before, you could really hurt somebody if you are wrong in your witch hunt. It is usually much to late to say sorry to someone when its over because, you know? They would be damaged goods from your crusade.

PS. Sorry I could not follow this discussion every minute for two weeks. Sometimes I have other places to visit and other sites on which to spend my time and attention. I really appreciated your observation though so I read all the comments over the two weeks. I think I am up to speed.

PSS. Shaming anyone builds the memories they will remember later; even if they survive the shaming, hazing, shunning or whatever you want to call it. Such encounters shape their lives and attitudes forever and always. They might forgive, but they will always remember.
