Cute and Clever Ideas for your Wedding Day: “Something Blue”

We all have heard the Old English wedding rhyme:

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.

These special items a bride is to carry with her on her wedding day are believed to bring happiness, longevity and purity to her wedding day. While most items are easy to find: your grandmothers pearl necklace, a new wedding dress, a borrowed pair of diamond earrings….that last step always seems to leave brides scratching their heads.

Never fear—we’ve got you covered! We have compiled a list of our favorite ways to add something blue to your wedding day.
