Your Something Blue
Something old, something new,
something borrowed, something blue
Take a look at the bottom of each and every pair of Rainbow Club shoes…
There you will find a glint of sapphire that catches the light as you walk. Every pair of our shoes features a sparkling ‘something blue’ gem for your magical day. It’s our token of good luck and a mark of design authenticity.
The tradition is from an old English rhyme whereby four objects are brought by the bride on her wedding day to either wear or carry. These are used as good luck charms for her new life.
Each phrase represents a different item.
This item should represent continuity and the past. A family heirloom or possession that means a lot to you and or your family. This could be a piece of jewellery such as a bracelet or fabric from a family members previously worn wedding dress.
Your something new can come in many forms of clothing, jewellery or other items such as make-up and flowers. The representation of the new item will give optimism for the future.
This represents happiness from another couple who will rub off their good fortune onto you. It could also be similar to your something old, such as a hair comb or a pair of earrings from someone in your family.
The colour blue represents purity, love, and fidelity to symbolise three qualities in a good relationship. The colour can be seen on your dress, bouquet or shoes. With every pair of our ivory shoes comes a small blue gem, however, you could always have them dyed to any shade you desire, with our colour inclusive service.
