Wedding Wednesday!

25 Jan

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe…” 

 How will you incorporate something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue into your wedding to ensure good luck in your future?  Like most brides, thinking about the something blue can be stressful for you if blue isn’t in your color scheme.  Here are my favorite ways to add a subtle hint of  ‘something blue’ on your big day:

Take it from Kate Middleton, the simplest way to add “something blue” is incorporating it into your wedding dress.  Whether you sew your wedding date into the fabric of your dress, or just a blue ribbon like the Duchess of Cambridge did this is a great way to add a subtle hint of blue.

Adding blue in your shoes is great and easy to do in a couple of ways.  Wearing blue TOMS will not only make you feel good inside (for every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair to a child in need) but since they are flat your feet won’t be hurting at the end of the night!  Want to wear heels but don’t want to go 100% blue? Try doing what this bride did and have your bridal party sign the bottom of your shoes in blue sharpie.  My suggestion:  Buy the thin felt tip Sharpies so the signatures don’t look smudged!

My favorite way to incorporate blue into a wedding is by using blue polish on either you fingers or your toes.  If you don’t want to try out the blue nail trend by yourself, this may be a good idea for all of your bridesmaids too! 

A small piece of jewelry with a hint of blue is also a good way to follow the tradition.  Look on Etsy for handmade, inexpensive pieces that will be one of a kind for your wedding! I love how simple and pretty this blue ring is!
