Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.
This old English rhyme still holds meaning today. The Knot.com describes the meaning behind the poem using words like continuity, tradition, good luck, and optimism. Martha and James’ April wedding embodied these words in spirit, and in all the details.
From their invitations, to the wedding favors, the bride took classic designs, and gave them a fresh new look-- a traditional layout and font combination in an unexpected horizontal orientation. A time-honored marriage ceremony laid out in a petite, accordion fold wedding program. And the color blue, often used to symbolize love, purity, and fidelity, was sprinkled throughout the wedding reception. A new custom-designed duogram for the bride and groom was used on the Save the Dates. That same motif was carried into other pieces at the wedding (the program, napkins, and koozies). Martha used her program to not only lay out the order of the ceremony, but to describe her something old, something new. Every guest was treated to the sentiment behind many of the details.
Fans of the handwritten note, we love how the bride and groom wrote letters to one another. Martha had some of her letters to James framed. In another sweet gesture, James had their wedding motif embroidered on a handkerchief. Known to shed happy tears, it was the perfect present for Martha. And you can imagine that same handkerchief becoming a something old or something borrowed for a loved one in the future.
