    What wasn’t blue in my wedding?! The ribbon on my bouquet was blue and my bebe shoes were also.

    I’m getting married in October and I’m thinking of doing a blue hair pin or bright blue shoes. I haven’t decided yet, but I want bold blue.

    I used the exact picture above to add “R” “J” to the bottom of my shoes. Also in blue stitching there was a K on the inside of my dress by the designer.

    My something blue was a pair of blue larimar earrings that once belonged to my mother. Of course my wedding colors were ivory and shades of blue, so, I suppose my bouquet could have been my ‘something blue’ as well–but, the earrings were sentimental and perfect.

    Oh – and my garter too. Mr. Smith is a huge University of Kentucky fan, so I had a UK blue garter too.

    One of my wedding colors was Tiffany blue, so I cheated a bit, but regardless, I had lots of something blues.
    Aquamarine earrings. An aquamarine necklace from Tiffany & Co. Undergarments. Shoes (heels for the ceremony, flats for the reception, both blue!). The lining of my vintage clutch. And my great grandmother’s hanky.
    Needless to say, I decked myself out in blue. :)

    I had my grandmothers hanky tied around my bouquet (it had a small blue flower embroidered on it) and I also had blue undies made with Mrs. Zyduck on the boo-tay! :)

    I had lots of blue! I love the color blue. My main something blue was a hair pin that was my grandmothers. I also had blue on my garter, wore real ballet slippers tied with a blue ribbon, and my bridesmaids all wore blue!

    My grandma loved this pair of blue cowboy boot earrings, and while my wedding wasn’t country at all, I wanted my blue to come from my grandma, who had passed away a few years earlier. I wore her earrings pinned to the inside of my dress.

    My blue wasn’t very exciting, but I had Cynthia Rowley shoes that had blue soles.

    My sweet wedding planner made my garter, and within it she had intertwined blue satin ribbon. It was really pretty and sentimental!

    Hi! New to your blog and really enjoying it! My momma and daddy’s wedding was blue and yellow so my momma took one of the blue ribbons from her bouquet and weaved it into my guarder belt. Oh wow…that was fun! Hope your having a great day! xo

    Very cute picture! I actually had two “Something Blue” items, both of which were very inconspicuous but I loved them. The first was a label I had sewn into my dress by the seamstress – it had my newly married initials and the date of our wedding embroidered in blue. I got it off of Ebay, there are lots of them to be found on there. The other Something Blue item was a small heart with the date, again embroidered in blue, on my underwear (of all places!). Once again, that’s something that I believe I found through The Knot.

    Good luck, and congratulations on your engagement!

    I had blue tags on my undergarments. A bridesmaid bought them for me as a gift. If I could go back though, I’d probably wear blue shoes!

    Oh my…when I saw that picture, had to take a second look. It was EXACTLY what I did on the bottom of my shoes. Our initials in blue jewels, but I added the date under each inital, on each shoe. Unfortunately, only my photographer got a shot, but it’s in my albumn and I love that it was my something “blue”…also tied a blue ribbon with a pic of my late Dad attached to my bouquet.

    So many ways to add “something blue” to your special day. Cannot wait to see your wedding..it’s going to be F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!!!!! Way to go Nina.

  • http://it-is-everlasting.blogspot.com Maggie

    I actually (GASP) forgot (gasp) to plan for something blue. Thankfully my MOH was all over it (hence why she didn’t remind me) and Dave bought me a gorgeous David Yurman necklace with a blue topaz and pave diamonds. It was perfect and I love that it is something I can wear over and over and know that I had it on the day I married my love!

    The Mr and I adopted a kitten the year before we got married. About 6 weeks before the wedding, Mulligan became very ill and had to be put to sleep. He wore a little blue collar, which I pinned to the inside of my dress.

    When I get married, I will carry my baptismal cap. It is an Irish linen handkerchief with my initials embroidered in blue. For my wedding, I am supposed to make a few little snipes that turn the cap back into a handkerchief to be carried in my bouquet. This “magic hanky” baptismal cap is a tradition in my family. Someone in my family (right now my mom) make the cap, and give it to the baby when it is born.

    I wore blue hanky pankys – there’s a really funny series of photos where my MOH and I are trying to figure out if there was ANY WAY you could them through my dress – at ANY angle or in ANY lighting! I also wore the blue garter that my mother and all my aunts wore on their wedding day.

    My something blue was OPI Blue My Mind polish on my toes! I thought it was a fun way to incorporate blue into my wedding day. My dress was very full at the bottom so no one saw my feet. We left the next day for Maui so it was a fun color to sport on the beach as well. Normally I stick to pinks/purples/reds/beige for nail polish colors, so it was fun to have bright blue toes for once!

    My something blue was a gift from my husband, on our wedding day he gave me saphire earrings to wear. What’s neat is that they are the kind where you can change the stone ( they are small diamond hoops with the ability to link a different stone etc.) So, in the note it said, In case we have 2 daughters we can make these into a necklace for each on their special day!!! I melted…..I am all about family heirlooms, so this REALLY touched my heart, it was perfect…

  • http://www.charmville.blogspot.com Allison

    I wore a sapphire and diamond ring from my fiance. My sister wore blue underwear. I definitely second all of the colored shoe recommendations– blue or not, colored shoes are so much fun (mine were coral)!

    My blue was in my mother in laws handmade garter from her old wedding dress. It was a blue ribbon that held the garter together and had a blue heart on it.

  • http://worldofjaime.blogspot.com Jaime

    I had blue-silver beads on the comb of my veil, and I also carried a blue hankerchief (it was wrapped around my bouquet.) My friend borrowed my veil last December, which became her something blue and something borrowed.

    My blue was a sapphire ring of my mom’s and my garter (made from my mom’s gown by my MIL) had blue trim as well.

    It might sound weird that my garter was made from my mom’s gown, but my niece’s (flower girl) dress was made from it as well.

    I love it when a bride wears blue shoes. I wanted to do it, but my mom said it wouldn’t be “appropriate”. Now i wish I would have. My blue was a sapphire and diamond ring my mother has and my garter.
