Ideas for adding Something Blue to your wedding day attire

by Judith Cartier Oliver on July 20, 2009

I am asked quite often by brides about how to add in "something blue" to their accessories.  This originates from an old poem "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue. It is thought if you carry or wear something from these four categories that they will be good luck tokens for a long and happy marriage.  Before the 19th Century, brides often wore blue gowns as a symbol of their love, modesty, and fidelity. My favorite color is blue and wearing blue is thought to also provide mental clarity and peacefulness and harmony.  Wearing blue on your wedding day is thought to bring you good luck!

There are so many ways you can incorporate your something blue into your wedding attire. Here are some ideas to hopefully inspire you to add in your own something blue that is all about you.

  • Wear a sexy leg garter that has blue lace accents.
  • Wear a something blue anklet that has blue crystals or pearls.
  • Add a blue sash to your wedding gown
