Some wedding traditions have fallen by the wayside in favor of a more modern approach. Others remain timeless. Getting something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue is a tradition that remains steadfast today.
If you’re at a loss for your “something blue” here are ten unique ideas to get you started.
One of the most unique and eye-catching twists on something blue is to wear a blue dress. Don’t get overwhelmed by the thought of looking like a blueberry: a subtle tint of blue looks stunning. You can find an example of this fantastic look at www.azazie.com. The cloudy blue and misty blue dresses are to die for.
Dyeing your shoes a gorgeous shade of blue adds a stunning contrast when wearing a white dress. This pop of color is fun and unexpected. If blue shoes aren’t your style, add a small blue heart to the bottom of each or have the undersides painted blue.
Incorporate sapphires or blue diamonds into your jewelry. Whether you opt to make it the focal point or add a subtle touch to your bracelet or veil is up to you. For those who don’t want this piece of jewelry to be the star of the show, using a bobby-pin or clip with blue embellishments is a subtle way to stick to the tradition.
