The saying “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue” has been around for centuries. Many brides have committed themselves to this for their wedding day. I have heard that the something blue was thanks to brides in Ancient Rome who wore blue to symbolize love and purity. It is easy to put this well known phrase into action, but the “Something Blue” might be the last one you think about or sometimes even forget. Here are some great options for you to think about when it is your time to take on Mission Something Blue!
Add a blue brooch to your bouquet. Even if your guests don’t see it, you will know it is there.
Who can forget the Blue Manolo Blahnik shoe that Big proposed to Carrie with in Sex and the City? A blue shoe on your wedding day would be a great way to incorporate the color.
Blue Nail Polish
A blue floral hair pin or you can add this somewhere on your wedding dress.
A blue clutch bag
And for those brides that feel wearing blue will clash, What about a “Something Blue” signature drink for your wedding?
