婚禮捧花 |WEDDING BOUQUET : SOMETHING BLUE

June 13, 2015

 

 

 

還記得美國電影Bride Wars(2009)新娘大作戰中提到的“something four”,指的就是:
something old
something new
something borrowed
something blue

這是歐美流傳已久的傳統結婚習俗,指的是新娘在婚禮當天要準備舊的、新的、借來的、藍色的四樣物品。其中所代表的意義如下:

舊的東西象徵新娘子的出身家庭、過去的延續,
新的東西代表未來的希望,
跟圓滿家庭借一點東西來,象徵沾點別人的好運,討討喜氣,
身上要配戴藍色的物品,象徵愛、純淨,和婚姻的忠貞與幸福。

藍色所象徵的意思則來自古代羅馬時期,藍色用來象徵新娘的愛、端莊或謙遜、忠貞,如果從宗教背景來看,還有純潔的意含在內。在19世紀末之前,藍色是許多西方新娘婚紗顏色,還有俗語曾說的
“Marry in blue, lover be true”。

In ancient Rome, brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, and fidelity. Christianity has long dressed the Virgin Mary in blue, so purity was associated with the color. Before the late 19th century, blue was a popular color for wedding gowns, as evidenced in proverbs like, "Marry in blue, lover be true." 


因而在設計此款新娘捧花時即以簡單的兩種深淺藍色玫瑰當作主色,搭配了恆星花材的白色繡球花與滿天星,象徵純淨的幸福。


愛很簡單,而婚姻的忠貞則考驗著更大的包容。
華麗絢爛的外表總歸拆開層層包裝,方能看見真實的彼此~

Marry in blue, lover be true.
It had to be you.
