5 ideas for your ‘something blue’

How about refreshing an old tradition? Having ‘something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue’ is an Old English tradition of the bride to bring her good luck on the big day. Here you’ll find unexpected ways to incorporate the hue into your wedding day.

1. Starting from the basics: a bundle of barely blue hydrangeas for your bouquet. Subtle, isn’t it? If you want to make it bolder though, you can choose dried blue hydrangea to create halos for your flower girls. Lovely!

2. Of course anything blue-related will do the job, you don’t need to wear it as the traditional way would recommend. Bridesmaids in blue will feel comfortable. Choose with them the best shade, from sky blue to saturated navy color. It is universally flattering.

3. Hello? The cake! All prettiest shades of blue can be realized by a cake designer to make your perfect and monumental wedding cake. Almost too pretty to eat!

4. Groom, get in on this tradition! You can propose your future hubby a fashion-forward look: a gray-blue bow tie or pocket square or even a ribbon-wrapped boutonnière.

5. Here we go, the getaway car. If you like it vintage, what is better than a sweet blue ride? Chevy or any other, let it be blue! Plus, it checks the ‘something old’ box too.

See? You don’t need a sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring like Kate Middleton (well, we wouldn’t refuse either!). You can be more creative and have fun imagining many other alternatives.
