Your something blue

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. We all know the rhyme and we all know the tradition, but how do you bring the blue to your big day? It can be a hard colour to incorporate but if you get it right, your something blue can be your favourite accent of the day.


The dress

Make a bold statement and make your something blue the thing that everyone will be talking about; your dress. Make it bold with an all blue number or tone it down with a light blue slip underneath a lacy, sheer white gown.

The shoes

If you’re a little more reserved when it comes to the blue hues, keep them tucked under your dress. We’re not talking knickers or garters but a beautiful pop of blue shoe peeking out from the bottom of your dress. Be bold with a royal blue, elegant with a navy or subtle with baby blue.

The hair

Floral crowns, subtle jewels or all-out-dye, your hair is the perfect place to nestle your something blue. We love floral crowns made up of babys breath, baby blue rosebuds and daisies, but have fun and create your perfect blue crown.

The suit

A navy suit is an underestimated wedding fixture. Well-tailored and paired with a white shirt, the suit might just outshine the dress. For an outdoor, summer wedding, take a risk and go for a baby blue suit to stand out from the sea of black and grey.

The bridesmaids

Give your girls the gift of blue and opt for blue bridesmaid’s dresses for them to wear on your big day. Pick the same shade to run throughout, or let each of them pick a hue of blue that compliments their skin tone and will make them feel a million pounds.

The cake

Use your cake as your canvas for blue. Decorate a naked sponge with blue flowers, brush ink over a royal icing or use blue buttercream to sandwich the layers. Whatever you choose, your something blue will be the most delicious thing of your big day.

The marquee

Make your marquee your backdrop for your something blue with subtle interior touches; balloons, bunting or blue fairy lights can make incorporating blue an easy feat. The options are limitless but make sure your something blue is something you love, not something you had to have.


A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
