Something blue – ideas for your wedding
Something old, something new; something borrowed, something blue. This saying has been a part of weddings since Victorian times, and Kristen, our Zankyou US editor, come up with 8 great ways to incorporate your ‘something blue’ into your bridal look. Take a look!
Colourful wedding shoes are a major trend and a great way to drive your colour scheme as well as tradition!
2. Nail varnish
If you don’t want blue shoes, how about blue toes?
We love these aquamarine and sapphire pieces from Tiffany & Co., Blue Nile and Brilliant Earth. A piece of jewellery with a blue precious stone can become an heirloom that you pass onto your daughter on her wedding day.
4. Wedding Bouquet
Okay, technically you’re not wearing it, but a blue bridal bouquet is with you all day, bringing good luck and looking lovely. Hydrangeas, delphiniums, statice, sea holly and campanulas are great blue-hued choices.
A blue garter is a traditional – and less visible – way to incorporate blue.
6. Hair accessories
A pop of blue adorning your updo is lovely and unexpected.
7. As an accent on your wedding gown
A sash, ribbon, or even a blue tulle crinoline peeking out from beneath your dress are all great ways to add a touch of color.
8. A blue wedding dress
If you’re going to go blue, why not go big? Colourful wedding dresses have been a mini-trend for a while now, and we love both the baby blue and smokey slate shades on display here.
