"Something Blue"

"Something old, something new,
Something borrowed something blue,
And a silver sixpence in her shoe."
Even though a silver sixpence may be hard to find these days,
Even the least traditional bride has a hard time ignoring the rest of
This old British rhyme no one is sure what is the exact origin or why
Each of these items was supposed to bring good luck, 
But it's fairly easy to guess. Something old represents continuity and Tradition, 
Something new represents the marriage, and something borrowed Reminds 
The bride that she can depend on family and friends.
Before Queen Victoria made the white wedding dress the norm,
Blue was a popular color for wedding dresses, because it symbolized Purity.
Brides today are opting for a lot fewer blue garters and becoming a lot 
More creative when it comes to bringing "Something blue" into their Wedding day.
Here's a few ideas:


In just a few years blue wedding shoes have gone from being "shocking" to "shockingly cute!" A killer pair of blue heels not only gives a little "kick" to your wedding ensemble, but it's practical, too. After all, you're much more likely to wear blue shoes than white shoes after the wedding. If you don't want completely blue shoes, consider painting the soles blue, or adding a small blue rhinestone to it.


Turquoise, Aqua Marine and Sapphire- cn be a great idea.
Aren't you lucky, sapphires are blue! Bling it up with a sapphire necklace, earrings, or bracelet and have something blue that will make you feel anything but sad.

While the phrase "blue flowers" may bring up images of 1970s prom corsages, there are actually many naturally (and more delicate) blue flowers. Consider hyacinth, delphiniums, or statice as part of your bouquet.


If you don’t mean to wear a white transparent and tight dress you can wear under your dress anything you'd like, even in blue.

Nail Polish
Let your fingers do the good luck talking with a pale turquoise nail polish shade. Or keep your good luck charm to yourself by painting your toe nails with a bolder sapphire. At the end of the night, when you're dancing enough to slip off the heels, your charms will have already worked their magic.
