Something Blue


Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

This sweet line from an Old English rhyme has morphed into a beloved and timeless tradition for brides in many cultures.

It remains to be as popular as ever, and brides who refuse to allow a hint of bad luck in their nuptials (or just swoon over the tradition) continue to incorporate the hue in their special day.

JEWELRY AND GEMSTONES
A sparkly way to incorporate blue into your bridal look is by wearing a piece of jewelry or hair comb with blue stones in it. Ask friends and family members if they own anything that would
work. Depending on how old the piece is, you could knock out old, borrowed and blue with one item.

ACCESSORIES
If you are more of a minimalist when it comes to your jewelry choices, incorporate the color with other accessories. Blue shoes make a confident statement. A blue clutch or pale blue ribbon around your bridal bouquet make good options if you are looking for a less permanent way to add the color to your attire. Both can be set aside come reception time.

DRESS AND UNDERTHINGS
Color has never been more popular in wedding gowns! If you are a bold bride, consider one in a blue hue. Many bridal gown designers have embraced the lighter shades. You can find gowns with blue lining, tulle and lace. If you have your heart set on white or ivory, you can always add a bit blue to your underthings.

STITCHING AND EMBROIDERY
Utilizing a bit of embroidery — such as stitching a phrase in blue thread on a vintage hankie or a heart in blue on the inner lining of your bridal gown — is a discreet way to incorporate the color blue into your special day. This allows you to integrate the color without requiring a full commitment to having the color overwhelm your bridal look.
