We’ve all heard of the classic wedding tradition, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.” While of course it’s up to you whether or not you want to include each of these in your wedding, we think it’s a fun way to stick with tradition. (Plus, they say it’s good luck!)
We’ve included four of our favorite ways to include “something blue” into your big day below:
“Stepping” Out in Blue
This option is a simple way to include “something blue” into your wedding. There are so many beautiful blue shoe options out there - from navy blue to light blue flats or heels, from designer to Amazon.com, there are a ton of options available with a quick Google search. Another option would be a blue accent on the shoe. We’ve seen everything from a gorgeous off-white heel garnished with a delicate blue bow or even a small blue heart sewn onto the back of the heel for a more subtle approach.
We love how a former bride of ours incorporated something blue into her pale blue heels! That white lace accent though…#love.
Another fun way to include something blue into your wedding day is adding a blue garter or some delicate undergarments. It’s a simple way to add a touch of blue to your wedding day while also being more non-nonchalant about incorporating the blue element. We love these garters from Etsy - here, here, and here. Don’t you just love these garters from small businesses?
Stay tuned on an upcoming post all how to incorporate small businesses into your wedding day!
Getting Ready in Blue
Don’t like the idea of sporting blue all day? Then this one is for you! We love the idea of tying in something blue with your getting ready outfit the morning of your wedding. Whether you choose robes, button down shirts, pajama pants, or rompers, there are endless ways to tie in a little blue while you’re in the bridal suite sipping champagne and getting pampered for your big day.
Blue in Bloom
Your bouquet is a perfect place to include subtle hints of blue for your wedding day. We loved how this former bride included hints of blue into her beautiful bouquet! It’s a simple way to tie in “something blue” and will look amazing against your white dress.
Not about blue florals? Try adding an embroidered handkerchief around your bouquet. This can be a great way to add a little personal touch of something blue.
