Win Something Blue for Blue Monday
The third Monday of January is said to be the ‘bluest’ day of the year and is now called ‘Blue Monday’. But not here at Morgan Davies Bridal where we want to spread the love on that day and bring sunshine, joy and a little fun into the lives of our bride’s to be who can win something blue for Blue Monday.
How to Win
Just follow us on social media (Instagram, Facebook London, Facebook Hitchin) and like our post to have the chance to win a beautiful bespoke monogrammed veil to wear for your wedding and also a bottle of the classic Bombay Blue Sapphire Gin.
Brides traditionally have an association with the colour blue. Even in the 21st century, most brides will honour the tradition of wearing a little bit of blue on their wedding day. Many Morgan Davies wedding dresses come with a sweet little blue bow stitched inside for good luck! Some brides wear blue shoes with their wedding dress, pretty pale blue silk underwear or even blue nail varnish, try Chanel Le Vernis.
Blue Wedding Dress
For some brides, the answer is to choose a blue wedding dress. The ‘Eleanora’ by Modeca is a stunning romantic dress with layers of the palest blue soft tulle and bohemian embroidered flowers in silver and apricot. You can try this dress in our Hitchin store.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue
So why do brides wear something blue on their wedding day? The tradition comes from the old English rhyme “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,”. This rhyme was first reported in a Lancashire newspaper in 1876. Something old is chosen for future good luck and the protection of future babies. In the days before a bride was able to choose a whole new outfit for her wedding, the new item was often a handkerchief or a new petticoat! An item was often borrowed from a friend for the wedding day for good luck and the ‘something blue’ stands for love, purity, and fidelity.
So, next Monday, forget the January blues and enter our competition. You can then dream about wearing your beautiful monogrammed bespoke veil and enjoying a G & T!
What is Blue Monday
The third Monday of January is dubbed Blue Monday. Originally thought up by the PR industry, it has now become accepted as a phenomenon. The theory behind it is that at this time of year we are all cold, with low energy and maybe even taking part in that other PR phenomenon ‘Dry January’, ensuring a truly blue mood, and that this particular Monday catches us at our lowest. But at Morgan Davies Bridal we are definately going to turn that around this year!
