In the wedding world, there is an old saying that a bride should have “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” on her wedding day. Many brides still practice this tradition in a variety of ways. Today’s focus is on the something blue.

There’s a lot one can do to incorporate a little blue into her wedding. From the invitations to bracelets to pretty lace panties to specialty cocktails, the options are endless. Here are a few ideas below to help inspire you.


A headpiece may be the perfect thing to incorporate your something blue. Wearing a headpiece also shows a little style and personality.

I love everything about this. Not only is her headpiece (Twigs & Honey) dramatic, but her necklace (Anthroplogie) is amazing as well.

Statement Necklaces

Who doesn’t love a statement necklace? One of these would work well with a strapless dress or sweetheart neckline.
