Something blue


There is this Old English rhyme about objects the bride should have on her wedding day - "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe". While not many brides still obtain and carry all five objects on her big day, “something blue” is still very common and a whimsical touch to the wedding attire. The blue originally stood for purity, love and fidelity, and while we shall not engage in the debate on whether purity is still a thing in the modern world, the beauty of something blue is barely questionable.
We can think of more than one way to incorporate the blue into the day you pronounce your everlasting love to your significant other, and here’s just a few of them:

1. Wear it as part of your bridal jewelry. Here are a few gorgeous Etsy finds:
Cornflower tear drop shaped dangle earrings.
Getting married on a beach and looking for
a unique bohemian accessory? Crocheted
linen necklace
may be just the thing.
Embellish your hairstyle with a blue opal hair vine.
2. Cover up in blue. If it gets chilly in the evening, if your dress is not modest enough for the church, for any reason at all, if you need to cover up your shoulders, why not do it in something blue?
Cover up in dusty denim blue shawl.
On a warm summer day use extra modesty
provided by lightweight gauze scarf
in pale aquamarine.
To get some genuine “oh wow’s”,
 rock the knit lace pattern ombre shawl.
       3. Did you know that one of the colors for wedding dresses in 2018 is going to be blue? So if you are bold enough for a blue wedding dress, next year is your time to shine and be trendy, all at the same time.
Choose a pastel blue wedding dress with white lace details for your big day.

Or just an ombre dusty blue dip dyed skirt.

If you are not bold enough for any of the above, can't go wrong with this incredibly subtle pale blue skirt.

At this point you may be thinking: I am not wearing any blue for my wedding day! Fair point, but what about your groom, your bridesmaids, or your ring bearer boy?
Check out this blue bridesmaids dress for your beach wedding.

What about a cute little ring bearer outfit with pastel blue details?
Small details: shades of blue bowties for the groomsmen 
or the groom himself.

If neither of the above is what you see as something blue at your wedding, and yet you are reading this article, so it must be an option to explore, here’s a suggestion that will work for absolutely anyone. Incorporate the something blue into the décor. 
Greet the guests at their tables with
stone washed linen cloth napkins.
Dine out of the vintage plates with blue watercolor splashes. 
Thank the guests for attending and
have them bring home wedding favors in blue pouches.

     Thank you for reading and happy hunting for your something blue!
