10 Best Something Blue For Your Wedding Or Elopement
The Something Blue Wedding Tradition
We have all heard the rhyme of wearing “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”, but where is the purpose of the something blue?
Historically it has come from a variety of cultures. The victorian era also included ” a sixpence in the shoe” and each momento was to add good luck and fortune for the nuptials.
The color blue is said to be representative of “fidelity and love’s purity.” Making it a popular color to wear prior to the white wedding dress trend.
Other cultures know it as a way to ward off evil spirits, since it is representative of such things, and adds a layer of protection over the marriage.
Regardless it is a way to add a little pop of color and nod to a historic way of adding luck to you and your spouse. And so here are some fun ways to combine a little ( or a lot) of something blue to your wedding or elopement.
Blue Jewelry for your Wedding
Whether earrings like these or a lovely bracelet or necklace, you can provide a pop of elegant blue in a subtle and stunning way.
Or you can take a note from the Queen and have a ring with a blue stone like hers.

Another favorite way to add a pop of blue is in your shoes.
And perfect for a picture, where you can peep a little bit of blue.
Something incredibly sweet is to add a bit of blue stitching.
Whether it is a stitched on patch with a love note in your suit or dress, or a stitched hanker-chief from a loved one, or even blue stitching of the date on your clothes, it is a sweet reminder and a sweet token.
I have often seen this from loved ones past, where there is a sweet message to or from their loved one for their special day.
