    We love the thought behind this "something blue." The bride stitched pieces from her grandmothers' wedding gowns onto a piece of her mother's dress—one of her grandmothers collected pigs while the other collected hearts.

    Why have one "something blue" when you can have two? This bride donned a blue, jeweled flower clip—that had belonged to her great-grandmother—in her hair, and she finished her look with sweet, light blue, crochet flats.
