We all know the old rhyme – something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. There are so many ways that you can include blue into your special day. Here are a few of our favorites!
1.) Blue Jewelry
A fun way to include blue in your big day is to rock some blue jewelry. It could be something subtle like in your earrings or a bracelet. Or even something more prominent like in a necklace. Whatever you think looks best and goes well with your dress. This is a great way to include blue without being over the top (like wearing a blue dress!).
2.) Blue Bridesmaids Dresses or Blue Suits
Why not make your wedding color blue and put your maids or the men in shades of blue? That’s probably the easiest way to incorporate it into your wedding day.
3.) Blue Nail Polish
Painting your nails blue could also be a fun way to include this old tradition into your wedding. It doesn’t have to be all of your nails; it could just be your pinky or even your toenails to make it more discrete. Then you’re also nicely manicured for the honeymoon right after the wedding!
4.) Blue Garter
Since there are two garters that you wear on your wedding day (one for the groom to toss and one to keep), consider incorporating blue into your toss garter with a simple ribbon or some blue crystals woven in.
5.) Something Sentimental in Blue
We love the idea of including something sentimental in the tradition of “something blue.” Consider getting a small piece of your mother or grandmother’s wedding gown, dying it blue and wrapping it on the handle of your bouquet. Or another trendy idea is to sew your wedding date to the inside of your dress using blue thread.
What did you use for your “something blue” at your wedding? We would love to hear from you!
