“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”

This phrase has been synonymous when it comes to classic wedding traditions, and most of it is usually easy to pull off.

“Something blue” however, this element is usually a little trickier to make happen.

If you have already taken care of the other three elements for this wedding tradition, we have a few unique and fun ways to incorporate your something blue into your wedding day ensemble in a classy and elegant fashion.

The Dress

The most obvious way to make a statement when putting your “something blue” into play is by passing on the pure white dress and going for blue.

A light seafoam is a great way to keep it classy and luxurious while passing on one of the common traditions in wedding history.


You’ll more than likely get a manicure or pedicure leading up to your wedding, so why not make a statement and add some blue onto your fingernails and toenails.

Whether it is a light powder blue or a deeper indigo, this is a creative and subtle way to incorporate this color into your look.


If you are truly going for the all-white look on your special day, the bouquet is a great area to sneak in a little color in a couple of different ways.

If you aren’t set on white flowers, consider going for a combination of white and blue blooms throughout to really make it stand out.

If you already have your bouquet ready to go, a blue ribbon around the stem to create a colorful handle for your flowers.


One of the biggest decisions you have to make when it comes to your
outfit on your big day is the type of shoes you are going to wear.

While you want them to be stylish and complement the rest of your
ensemble, making sure they are comfortable is a huge part of enjoying
your day.

If you don’t want to wear all-blue shoes, consider adding some elements
on the shoe such as blue beads, laces, even a colored sole that is
different from the rest of the footwear.


No, we don’t mean dying your hair blue the day before the wedding (unless you want to, we won’t stop you).

Whether it is a floral headband or some blue ribbons tied up in your hair, there are a bunch of different ways you can incorporate this color into your hairstyle to make it pop.


For the bride trying to keep it subtle, jewelry is arguably the best way to make this look happen.

Whether it is a pair of earrings, a ring on your right hand, or a trendy necklace, these are subtle fashions that can add this feature in an elegant way.

With so many options to choose from, choosing your blue shouldn’t be difficult at all.
