We’ve all heard the saying: Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Some brides stick to tradition and follow all these “rules,” while others only opt for a few. It seems having “something blue” speaks to most brides, as it represents love, purity and fidelity. Of course the blue garter under your wedding gown is the obvious choice, but it’s not the only one. Get creative and have fun! Below are some suggestions to get your started.
Your bridal bouquet is a lovely way to get that something blue into your wedding ensemble. Whether you go for a bolder hydrangea or a simple but romantic filler like larkspur, you can’t go wrong. Talk to your florist about what could be best for you.
We love a denim bridal jacket. It’s super fun and meshes with any type of wedding or bridal gown: city hall, boho, barn, traditional, backyard… you name it! A blue denim jacket also makes for awesome photo opps and can be customized exactly to your liking.
What better way to incorporate blue than going for a fun pop of color on your shoes. You can choose an all-over blue shoe, or go for a fun, brighter blue on the bottom. And talk about variety! So many gorgeous shades out there–from a classic Tiffany blue to a beachy turquoise. You choose what best suits your overall look.
Whether you go for a mani or pedi, or both, blue nail polish is a fun way to add color to your bridal look. Blue nails can be subtle or bold–the manicure options range from all-over polish, blue French tips or a tiny touch of nail art. And, if you are wearing sandals, going barefoot for a beach wedding, or even wearing peep-toe shoes, blue toes are a chic choice.
Whether hidden in the pocket of your denim jacket or wedding dress pockets, you’ll definitely appreciate having a handkerchief to dab those tears on your big day. So, why not make it your something blue? Embroidery is super popular, as well as vintage hankies.
Is your pooch a part of your big day? If so, deck him or her (or both!) out in something blue! You can use a cute blue bowtie, bandana, floral color, and lots more! So much room for creativity here, and seriously, how cute?!
