My "Something Blue"

Every bride needs...
"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue."

I struggled with what I wanted my something blue to be, but eventually decided on this cute idea - my new name put underneath my dress! 

All of these awesome pictures of my "blue" where taken by Sara Thiry of Wonderful Life Photography ...that is why they are so much nicer than the low quality ones you may be used to me posting ;) 

Mrs. Matthew Godfrey
July 13, 2013

It was sewn in upside down, so that when I flipped my dress up, others could read it!
(I really only flipped it up for my husband and the photographer to see though.)

I guess if I ever have a daughter that wears this dress she will have to have her new name stitched on top of mine. Or underneath - that would be pretty cool too!

I was very happy to become "Mrs. Matthew Godfrey" ...if you can't tell!

Okay, so now I'm curious...If you are married, what was your something blue??

Thanks for stopping by and reading along! 
I am thankful for all of my followers. :)
