7 Unique Ways to Wear Something Blue at Your Wedding

Although wearing “something blue” on your wedding day is a centuries-old tradition, it’s fun to see how modern brides incorporate the color into their look. Ancient couples often fashioned blue fabric around the edges of their wedding outfits to symbolize faithfulness, purity and loyalty, traits represented by the color blue.

While brides today rarely include prominent blue details, many choose to subtly sneak in the color. Try a pair of sapphire earrings or a baby blue manicure for a modern take on the tradition. Here are a few more ways to wear “something blue.”

Wrap your bouquet with ribbons in varying shades of blue or include a few blue accent flowers.

Flower crowns are very trendy right now. If you plan to wear one at your wedding, consider adding some blue blooms to the crown. If you’re going a more traditional route, sparkly blue barrettes or hair combs look lovely, too.

This is probably the boldest, most fun way to incorporate blue. Wear a pair of heels in bright cobalt blue for a standout look, or make a subtle statement with pastel blue shoes.

Nail Polish

For the beauty-obsessed bride, painting your nails blue might be the best way to wear the color. And if you can’t pick one shade of blue, just go for an ombré effect like this bride.


Blue Earrings

Instead of wearing classic pearl earrings, why not invest in a pair of sapphire studs or sparkly navy crystal earrings? These can easily be worn again after the big day.

If your dress style is accommodating, a pale blue lingerie set is a sneaky way to wear blue. Plus, it will come in handy later in the night. *wink*

For winter or fall weddings, outerwear is an easy, creative way to wear blue. We love how this bride donned a denim jacket at her rustic outdoor wedding.
