‘Something Blue’ Ideas for your Wedding

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe,” the old English rhyme with origins of wedding day good luck charms.

Something old, reflecting the past; maybe where you and your partner met or your parents. Something new represents the future; a wedding present from your family or it could even be your wedding dress itself. Something borrowed is to symbolise borrowed happiness to kick start married life. This could be a necklace your Nan has that you absolutely love or something your Mother-in-law wore on her wedding day. Sixpence in your shoe is a British thing but don’t threat, there are plenty of places you can still buy a sixpence online. The purpose of the sixpence is that it represents good fortune.

But this post is all about SOMETHING BLUE!
Here are some of our favourite ideas!


There are some beautiful true blue flowers that would look gorgeous in your wedding bouquet.

Having a blue veil is a subtle yet easy way to incorporate blue into your wedding ensemble.

Etsy is also a gold mine with a range of veils from small & subtle to long and flowing. There’s even an ombre effect one!

Illusions do a range of coloured veils and those with a coloured trim are definitely worth a look.

There are so many ways to wear blue on your wedding day, Harper’s Bazaar demonstrate exactly how you can.

Besides, who says it has to be the bride that wears blue? We love these blue tailored shoes.
