Your Something Blue: My Picks & Ideas!

I love this tradition and I’ve found that most brides do as well. Here are my picks for items to consider as your something blue.

Your Bouquet

This may not be easy to do if you’re wedding color scheme doesn’t compliment blue. But, if it does, this is a nice way to incorperate the tradition. Image courtesy of

Your Bridal Clutch

I think your bridal clutch is a chic way of adding something blue into your day. I love this satin fluer clutch from J. Crew. It also comes in a variety of other colors, including white, for all you traditional gals.

Your Bridal Shoe

I’m a huge fan of brides wearing colored shoes on their wedding day. It shows off a bit more of your personality, and the chances that you’ll wear the pricey shoe again? Pretty good. I love this blue shoe from Nine West, especially the jewel embellishment and the ruffle on the top. It reminds me of the crumb catchers that are gracing the 2008/2009 bridal gown collections. So pretty!

Blue Handkerchief

This detail is probably my all time favorite. I love the personalized blue stitching on this vintage handkerchief by stichberry on The best part? It’s only $13!

Blue Rosary Beads

So many brides carry rosary beads with them on their special day. If you don’t have a rosary that is sentimental to you or your family, consider carrying the one above by BeadsofHeaven. You can carry them with you to the alter by hand, tucked in your dress, or like our bride Michelle who had her rosary wrapped around her bridal bouquet.

Blue Gown Embelishments

With the right dress, a little splash of color makes all the difference. I love this dress by Monique Lhuillier. Her Spring 2009 collection is simply gorgeous!

Blue Jewels

Another one of my favorite picks: choosing to wear a blue piece of jewelry on your big day. This broach, from Tiffany, is the perfect blue accessory. Also consider blue inspired earrings, a necklace, or bracelet.

  1. Blue shoes are SUCH a great addition! I also love the idea of a blue ring (for the bride’s right hand) as their something blue. One of my brides also did a blue temporary tattoo as her something blue — a little spice for her wedding night!

    I love the idea of the blue temporary tattoo! That is a bit flirty and mysterious!!

  3. Liene at Blue Orchid Designs says:

    I love the idea of blue rosary beads for a Catholic wedding – perfect!

  4. Debbie says:

    Speaking of temporary blue bridal tattoos, there’s a new company doing I Do Tattoos. My friend Dana wore the “sexy legs” design on her wedding day!
