Don't Be Blue about your "Something Blue"

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” Everyone knows this old saying and many brides still try to abide by it on wedding day. But when you're wearing all white, the puzzling part can be where exactly to incorporate that "something blue" into your wedding day fashion.

Not sure what to have as your something blue? Here are some of our favorite ways to include it in your day-of look:

For a classic bride, blue pearls attached to the ends of bobby pins in your hair is an elegant touch.

But there's no need to be subtle with your something blue. If your style is a little bit funky, you could paint your nails a light shade of blue or wear blue tights under your dress. For something a bit more noticeable, wear a blue petticoat under your dress or blue shoes.

Your something blue can be your little secret, hidden from view.  Why not embroider your wedding date in blue on the under-skirts of the dress? Or wear blue undies or a blue garter. Perhaps it could be fun to make your groom search for that something blue after the festivities are over!

Your something blue can also pay tribute to a loved one. Remember a grandfather who couldn’t be with you by stitching a piece of his old shirt or scarf onto your dress.

 There are so many ways to include your something blue in your wedding day, so be creative!
