Something Blue Hem

Posted June 6, 2011 | 5 Comments

Ok, loves, I’ve found it! Finally… a sweet and subtle way to tie in the adage of “Something Blue” into your bridal ensemble. Who would have thought a something blue hem would be an idea that never crossed my mind? When I saw it on this bride, I knew I had to share it with you. Grab a spool of this and secretly sew your initial or the wedding date into your slip or underside of your dress hem. Not a sew-ista? Let a professional take care of it — your seamstress will know the most inconspicuous place to stitch it in.

    I love, love, love this idea…I was given a blue brooch by my BFF the day I married and we pinned it inside my dress. It was such an emotional moment. All of my ladies gathered around me to give me something. I am getting veklempt thinking about it! xo
