Something new for something blue!

By now, you can probably recite it in your sleep: "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue." Despite many traditional wedding practices being left in the dust by the modern bride, this old poetic standby remains popular. Do you want to stick with superstition? If so, we have created a round-up of some great ideas that will keep you from singing the blues. 

1. Nails

Pain your nails a shade of blue or keep it subtle by only painting one accent nail. Here are some blue nail polishes inspired for brides!

2. Lingerie

Your garter is an especially fun place to hide the something blue.. Let your spouse be the one to discover it. 

3. Shoes

Put on your blue suede shoes or save it for the soles! You can find your dream wedding shoe and incorporate your something blue by painting the soles the shade of your choice. Shoe lines like Blue from Betsy Johnson are designed with this idea in mind! 

4. Jewelry

Blue sapphire will give you a beautiful and regal look. Maybe even consider incorporating these lovely stones into your wedding band. 

5. Bouquet 

There are a plethora of ways to add elements of blue into your bridal bouquet. The first and most obvious choice is blue flowers. For example, hydrangeas come in gorgeous shades of blue. Blueish berries between blooms would also be a trendy way to add a pop of color. Bind your bouquet with blue ribbon, or attach a blue charm.

6. Bridesmaids Dresses

After all, your bridesmaids are your greatest accessory! Adorn them in blue and you're all set.
