Something Blue

June 22, 2012

Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue….

For generations brides have been chanting that rhyme and thinking of 4 special items to have on their wedding day that will bestow good luck on their marriage!

We thought we would explore some ideas on “something blue” to help all your brides out there with this tradition.

The garter belt is probably one of the most common “something blue” items used by brides!

Some brides choose to combine the “something old” and “something blue” with a handkerchief passed down from a parent, grandparent or great grandparent!  A popular wedding gift has also become monogrammed handkerchiefs!

Any “Sex and the City” fans out there?  Ever since the movie, brides all over have been walking down the isle in a pair of Manolo Blahnik’s….the pair that Carrie wore.  Regardless, blue shoes are a popular and fun choice!

We love this!  Use a blue pen so it counts as your “blue” – have your bridesmaids sign the bottom of your shoes with well wishes! We think this is a totally sweet touch on  your special day!

Accent your wedding day jewelry with blue gemstones!  Integrate sapphires, topaz or  aqua marine in your earrings, necklace, ring, bracelet or broach!

Shoe decals are becoming very popular.  You can find cute phrases or put your wedding date on the bottom of your shoes.  It makes for cute wedding day photos and if you kneel down at an alter….your guests will get a look at your message.  Just make sure you put the right decal on the right shoe!

We all know where the “little blue box” is from!  Tiffany’s also has a line of blue diamonds, as pictured above.  Not a bad “blue” something on your wedding day!
