Here Are 8 Items You Can Personalize for Your Something Blue!

With so much already on their plate, why do brides go to the trouble of preparing something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue on their wedding day? Some might do it for the sake of tradition, while others may believe it will bring good fortune to their wedding. The English tradition of carrying something blue, specifically, was actually meant to ward off evil spirits and symbolize the bride’s love and modesty. It was most commonly represented by a baby blue garter, but brides nowadays have come up with unique spins on their own something blue. Whatever the reason for incorporating the tradition into your special day, it’s definitely a fun opportunity to get creative and show off your personality. Keep scrolling for a few ideas on how you can have (or wear) something blue to your wedding day!

1. Bridal Shoes

Blue shoes are an incredibly stylish way to add a pop of color into the usual all-white bridal look. Try out bold blue-colored stiletto heels or any pair of shoes embroidered with sparkling blue stones. A tip for brides looking to go this route—you might want to consider a skirt with a shorter length, so your shoes get their chance shine!

2. Engagement Ring

Traditional diamonds may be the popular choice for engagement rings, but they are not the only option when it comes to gemstones. Blue stones are also a classic choice and the blue hue aptly symbolizes purity and fidelity. You can go for a sapphire or a synthetic blue diamond for the engagement ring and the wedding bands, and you can also personalize them to match your style.
