We all know the traditional wedding saying but just in case you needed a refresher it goes a little something like this…
“Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.”
A timeless rhyme that our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and friends have been practicing for years. The first three “somethings” are pretty easy to incorporate, but that third, “something” can be pretty tough. Your wedding color scheme may not include hues of blue and throwing in a random splash of periwinkle or cobalt may look a bit strange. But not to worry, we’ve come up with our top five favorite, unique ways to add Something Blue that you’re bound to love!
5. Hidden Blue Heart
A simple take on the “something blue” tradition, we’re loving the hidden meaning behind this hidden heart. The sweetest option for honoring a loved one (or even Dad!), take one of their old shirts to cut out the heart shape and sew it to the underside of your Wedding Gown.
4. Bouquet Ribbon
Your bouquet is the perfect place to add in a little dash of blue! We’re loving this option for a Teal Wedding (or really any color theme!) – simply tie your stems with blue twine and add a satin blue ribbon to the handle. You can even sneak in some blue flowers or pretty broaches if your Wedding Bouquet allows.
3. Secret Bow
We are absolutely in love with this option for brides whose wedding gown has a fuller skirt. Tie a blue ribbon into the under layer of the dress material for a perfectly feminine look.
2. The Shoes
Chances are, your shoes are covered by your wedding dress – so why not add in a little pop of color with blue wedding shoes? From royal blue to baby blue, there are a seemingly endless amount of options to find the hue that’s perfect for you.
1. Nail Polish
A soft hue of light blue on your nails is a beautifully subtle way to showcase your Something Blue. Looking for something even more subtle? A blue pedicure is a lovely way to integrate your blue and pairs perfectly with open or closed-toe heels!
Pssssst…don’t forget, you can always tie something blue into your Wedding Invitations! The muted blue and mint tones in the Poster Wedding Invitation and the bold teal in the Posh Wedding Invitation below provide the perfect amount of blue to complete your tradition!
