We all know the saying, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, with a sixpence in your shoe” it’s an age-old wedding saying. However, it’s that darned “something blue” that seems to attract the most trouble. Well if you’ve been labouring over finding your own something blue, read on and see if you won’t be inspired!
Blue Nail Polish
Blue nail polish is a very fashion forward idea for the contemporary or eccentric bride. Too scared to paint all of your nails a shocking shade of blue? Try blue tips or even a simple blue flower or crystal design. You could even paint your toes so no one will notice and you’ll still have your something blue.
If the late Princess Di didn’t make this trend huge, then the new Princess Kate (her would-be daughter-in-law) did. Of course, praise belongs to the Princes Charles and his son William for presenting their fiancés with the blue sapphire engagement rings to begin with. (Good job!) If you’re a British monarchial fanatic like me, then you too may want your own version of a blue sapphire ring. If so, you can purchase one here to wear on your own royal day.
Not a blue ring gal? No problem, there are plenty of other blue jewelry options such as necklaces, earrings, and brooches for you to choose from.
Carrying a bouquet laden with blue flowers is also an excellent way to incorporate your something blue. Hydrangeas, my absolute favourite, come in a lovely shade of blue as well as cornflowers, periwinkles, morning glories, violets, blue bonnets, and more. You can sneak a few into the bouquet or make them entirely blue. The choice is yours.
This something blue idea is extremely fun and something I promise you your groom will appreciate once the wedding night commences. There are a plethora of panty cuts, fabrics, designs, and shades to choose from. You could do a simple thong or an entire bridal blue lingerie set. Either way it’ll be an extremely sexy way to fulfill your something blue requirement. And you know what? That’s ok! You can purchase the boyshort shown below here. Check out La Perla, Victoria’s Secret, or Fredericks to see if anything piques your interest plus it wouldn’t be a bad time to start your wish list for your bachelorette party!
A blue garter is a lovely way to incorporate the garter without fighting with any colour scheme you might already have in place. I would search high and low for just the right garter to suit your personality. I’ve found an extremely unique winner that many of just might want to jump on and purchase at your earliest convenience! You can purchase it here.
Who hasn’t seen Beyonce’s fabulous “Best Thing I Never Had” music video? It’s wonderful message that many women—me included—can relate to and, of course, it’s sung most beautifully. But was much as we love Beyonce [congrats to you and Jay … Continue reading
