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."

"Directly copying another designer’s color scheme might be considered lazy. In some cases, it can even be considered copyright infringement. A recent case involving Seven Towns, the makers of Rubik’s Cube, versus Dayan, demonstrates that while color schemes themselves can’t be copyrighted, the order and placement of colors can be. It’s why Dayan replaced its orange with purple."

On your other concern, simply attributing something to the creator does not give you the right to use it. All rights accrue to the creator (except in work-for-hire situations). It sounds like you got permission so the creator extended you some rights to use the works. You should be fine. It is always a good idea to get rights assignments in writing. This is especially true if you did plan to use works for your own commercial gain. Doing so avoids "he said, she said" conflicts later on.

The creator may of course request payment or royalties for use of the work. The rights to use it are only as broad as the creator releases to you---first edition, use on Tmblr, unlimited rights, etc. The creator may insist on a nearby credit or attribution. Again, I don't see you in trouble give the way you have approached this.

Most of the examples shown so far show colors in a different order than the original palette. While the original palette could be protected, and the creator might have a claim of infringement if it were copied exactly, once the colors are rearranged it is considered a different palette. There is no violation, at least legally. Sadly this is true no matter how obvious the similarities.
