We've all heard the old adage that a bride should wear "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue" on her wedding day. It's been said that doing so will bring the bride luck. While each bride is unique, it's becoming harder and harder to find that "something blue" that hasn't been done before. Well, we've come to the rescue. Here are our top 10 ways to add "something blue" to your big day in unique and intriguing ways!
1. Blue Ink
For those couples that are writing their own vows, this is such a sweet and personal ideas. Not only will you get your "something blue," but you also have a beautiful keepsake that can be framed and displayed after the wedding.
2. Oscar De La Renta "Something Blue" Perfume
If blue isn't your color but you still want to follow tradition, this would be a great way to do so. Plus, you'll smell divine when the big day arrives.
3. Blue Romper
Take a cue from Duck Dynasty star MaryKate Robertson, and get ready for your walk down the aisle in a blue bridal romper or a blue robe. This romper from Love Ophelia, which is the one MaryKate wore, also comes in other colors so your bridesmaids can get ready in them too!
4. Blue Lining
This may be a little too out there for some, but for that bride who loves to be cutting edge or a bit quirky… this is for you.
5. Blue Soles
Everyone has seen at least one bride wear blue shoes as their "something blue." This is a way to elevate that idea to the next level, while also secretly pretending the soles are red and you're wearing Christian Louboutins!
6. Blue Nail Polish
Nail polish is such a fun and subtle way to add a small pop of blue. If all over blue isn't for you, just do blue French tips instead of white. It'll be subtle and everyone will compliment how creative you were to think of it.
7. Blue Ribbon
If incorporating blue into your bridal look just isn't working out for you, then tying blue ribbon around your bouquet is the way to go. For whimsical look, make your ribbon longer and allow it to flow freely from your bouquet.
8. Blue Fabric
While this has been done many times before, it's such a sweet sentiment that we had to include it. If you've lost a loved one, this is a great way to include them in your big day. Just cut a piece of blue clothing they once owned and have your seamstress sewn it into the lining of your gown.
9. Blue Zipper
This is such a fun way you incorporate "something blue," and is sure to catch all your guests' eyes!
10. Blue Tieks
Almost every bride loves to wear heels on their wedding day. While heels are gorgeous and make for great pictures, they usually end up coming off by the end of the night. It's always nice to have a great pair of flats stashed away for when this happens, and Tieks are definitely the way to go! Not only do they have a great blue sole, they're also so comfortable and allow you to dance the night away without your feet dying for break.
