We have all heard the saying “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” It seems pretty easy to incorporate all of these elements, with the exception of ”something blue.” Traditionally, “something blue” was put into the wedding to ward off the Evil Eye. It also can mean love, purity, and fidelity. Well, something blue is not a must in every wedding most brides love to find ways to incorporate a little blue in their day for tradition and sentiment. You may not want the ”something blue” to be too overpowering, especially if your wedding colors do not contain blue. So how do you add something blue to your wedding in a subtle way? We are here to tell you some simple tips on how just to add that to your wedding day!
In the shoes!
Wedding shoes are so special because most of the time no one sees them unless you want them to. This something blue can just be special for you. Whether you go for an all-blue heel or small touches of blue in the shoe, they both will make you feel complete with your “something blue.”
In the flowers!
We absolutely love florals at weddings because they can completely transform the wedding decorations. Another great thing about flowers is that they come in so many colors! You could essentially have any color flower for your big day. At this wedding, the main flower color was white, then they added blue accent flowers to create a pop of light blue. It was a beautiful way to show off something blue through the wedding decorations.
In the men’s clothing!
Colored vests or ties are a fun way to add a bit of blue to your wedding. Even the little ones can get involved with their clothing colors. (P.S. you can also add a colored sash to the flower girl’s’ waist of the dresses to carry through that “something blue.”)
Whether you are getting married in a church, at a lake, in a country club, at the beach, or any other place, “something blue” never goes out of style! Call us today for more ideas on how to incorporate your “something blue!”
