The “something blue” tradition dates back to brides in ancient Israel, who wore blue ribbons on the borders of their robes to denote modesty, fidelity, and love. Today, we’ve traded the robes for white gowns and have started to add blue in all of the right places. Looking for ways to use your blue? Check out how below:
Wear Blue Shoes
Adding a beautiful pop of color for your footwear, gives a pleasant surprise when looking at the bride on the dance floor. Go classic with Christian Louboutin’s So Kate Patent Leather Pumps, elegant in Badgley Mischka’s Georgia Embellished T-Strap Evening Shoe or sassy in Ami Clubwear’s Blue Open Toe Single Sole High Heels Nubuck.
Polish Nails in Blue
Follow Beyonce’s lead from her secret wedding in 2008, to Jay-Z. She wowed the crowed with a vibrant blue color, similar to Essie’s E819-Butler Please. If you want something more playful and soft, try Zoya’s Yummy or Ella + Mila’s My Pool Party.
Use A Sexy Blue Garter
Thinking about the love of your life retrieving the infamous garter, to toss to all of their college buddies, go on blush a little. Wow him (or her) and make it blue, like The Garter Girl’s Something Blue Garter, David’s Bridal Stretch Lace Garter with Rhinestone Applique or Zizel Bridal’s Mint Wedding Garter
Wear Jaw-Dropping Blue Undies
The wedding night might be a wild one, and what better way to wow your significant other than with a sexy pair of blue panties underneath your wedding gown? Hips and Curves has the Strappy Stretch Lace Panty, perfect for that “Wow” factor or try something sensual like Victoria Secret’s Floral Lace & Mesh Cheeky Panty or La Perla’ Begonia Briefs.
Sparkle in Blue Diamonds and Jewelry
Accent you dress with blue jewels, and we guarantee you and your wedding pictures will sparkle. Helzberg’s 1/2 ct. T.W. Blue Diamond Earrings in Sterling Silver are a perfect start or try Ross Simon’s – 2.05 ct. T.W. Diamond and 1.30 Carat Sapphire Bypass Bracelet in 18K White Gold.
