Wonderful ‘Something Blue’ Ideas for your Wedding Day
Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue… We’ve all heard of this age-old wedding tradition that seems to have been around for years and years. Today we’re focusing on ‘Something Blue’, so keep reading to find out how you can incorporate some beautiful blue details into your big day…
The Wedding Dress
More and more brides are embracing a coloured gown, and blue really is a beautiful choice for your bridal attire. This is an easy and gorgeous way of incorporating the ‘Something Blue’ tradition into your aisle style, and it’s the perfect choice for the fashion-forward bride. However, if you have always dreamt of wearing a white wedding dress there are lots of other ways to add a subtle blue touch to your outfit. We love the idea of sewing a blue heart or a small cut of a blue handkerchief on the inside of your dress. Alternatively, you could stitch the date of your wedding on the inside of your dress in a blue thread. Plus, it’ll be your special secret.
Wrap up warm with a cosy blue cardigan or a denim jacket. Not only will it keep you cosy during your wedding day, it’s a nod towards your ‘Something Blue’ wedding tradition. Plus you can easily wear your jacket after the big day too!
A pop of colour peeping out from under your dress will look oh-so-fabulous, so why not rock a pair of pretty blue shoes on your wedding day? Again, as they won’t be typically bridal you’ll have the opportunity to don them after the big day. Wearing statement shoes is a particularly good idea for those who are wearing a tea-length wedding dress.
Let’s talk about your wedding accessories! From blue-tinted flower crowns to dazzling Aquamarine jewellery, there are lots of ways to add a dash of ‘Something Blue’ to your wedding accessories.
The Beauty Look
If you’re a glamorous bride-to-be, why not rock some beautiful blue nail polish on your wedding day? It’ll look lovely teamed with glittering blue accessories, and it will mean your manicure-ready for your honeymoon too.
The Wedding Bouquet
Incorporate your ‘Something Blue’ into your bridal bouquet by tying a silk or velvet blue ribbon around the stems. You could also tie a tiny photo frame or horse shoe to the ribbon for a good luck charm as you walk down the aisle.
What could be more special than getting your team of best girls involved in your wedding tradition? Blue is a seriously popular colour for bridesmaid dresses and is it any wonder?! Get your ‘maids to pick out a shade of blue that they feel most comfortable in. Bridesmaids look utterly beautiful in mix and match dresses, and it’s modern take on the traditional bridesmaid attire.
As you can see, there are so many wonderful ways to add a subtle hint of ‘Something Blue’ to your wedding day…
