3 Unique Ideas for Your “Something Blue”

3 Unique Ideas for Your Something BlueEvery bride knows the classic rhyme: “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.” The traditional poem details what a bride should wear for good luck on her wedding day. While most Texas brides have done away with the sixpence, nearly every bride says “I do” with a special something blue. Whether you’re having a traditional wedding or a modern wedding, your something blue is a must. But what to pick for this sweet bridal tradition? Here are some unique ideas.

Blue wedding shoes

Gone are the days when only a white or ivory heel would do — now brides are walking down the aisle in shoes of all colors and styles. Our favorite choice? A beautiful blue wedding shoe. The best part is blue is appropriate for all seasons. Having a fall wedding? Try a vibrant royal blue. Tiffany blue or sky blue pops for a spring wedding. Navy stuns in the winter. Summer wedding? Any shade will do!

A hidden bloom in your bouquet

This something blue will be your little secret: Regardless of what color or arrangement your bridal bouquet is, you can request that your florist tuck a blue bloom inside as your special something blue. Or if blue is one of your Texas wedding colors, don’t keep it hidden; walk down the aisle with a vibrant blue floral bridal bouquet.

Beautiful blue nails

Blue nails are one of the latest “something blue” trends. The look doesn’t have to be tacky if you stick to a soft, muted light blue. Wary of a blue mani? Try a blue pedicure instead. Beneath your gown, it will rarely show, but you’ll know it’s there. And then you’ll be honeymoon-ready if you’re beach bound.
