6 "Something Blue" Ideas
Blue has always been my favourite colour. Even as a child my room was painted in blue ombre. There are just so many lovely shades of blue; periwinkle, navy, cobalt blue, iris, cornflower blue, cyan . . . the list goes on and on. I absolutely adore when brides choose to incorporate "something blue" into their wedding outfits in celebration of tradition which comes from an old English rhyme ("Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe"). Wearing or incorporating the colour blue is meant to bring good luck for the future. Here are my top 6 "something blue" ideas:
You can never go wrong with a stunning pair of blue shoes on your wedding day. The pop of colour under your wedding dress is the perfect amount of drama. from left to right: image via Love My Dress, image via Etsy, image via The Wedding Chicks
You can incorporate blue buds into your bouquet such as hydrangea, veronica, or blue thistle. Or if you desire more neutral flowers, choose to wrap the stems of your bouquet in a blue ribbon. from left to right: image via The Wedding Chicks, image via The Wedding Chicks, image via Style Me Pretty
If you want to make a real statement, adorn a blue sash on your wedding dress.
