Most brides are familiar with the old saying, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” Including something blue into your wedding day look can be a little tricky, but don’t fret because we’ve come up with seven unique ways to incorporate that blue hue into your wedding day attire.

1.    Flowers.  Think about bringing blue into your bouquet. Hydrangea, hyacinths and delphiniums are all gorgeous blue flowers that work well in bouquets, come in a variety of shades and are aromatic!

2.    Necklace. Sport a statement necklace with sapphire, aquamarine or turquoise stones to really make headsturn. These blue gemstones look fabulous with paired against white, cream or blush colored dresses. It’s hard to go wrong here, ladies.Here are a few fabulous ones we found—and if they’re out of your price range, they’re still great for ideas!

3.    Shoes. If you can’t commit yourself to wearing blue stilettos on your wedding day, here is a more discrete way to include blue on your footwear – write your wedding date on the soles of your stilettos.  Also, picking up a pair of light blue Converse sneakers can be a stylish, youthful and whimsical touch to your reception look. Plus, this way your feet won’t hurt from all that dancing you’re about to do!

4.    Fragrance. Mist Dolce & Gabbana’s Light Blue Eau de Toilette Spray on your wrists, inner elbows, neck and even the backs of your knees for a light, flowery scent that is perfect for spring and summer weddings.

5.    Lingerie. Consider wearing periwinkle or royal blue undies underneath your dress. Not only will your future hubby think this is a great idea, and it is your little secret.

6.    Headpiece or veil. Here’s a big confidence leap that you can totally pull off. Remember how fabulous Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding headpiece was in the Sex and the City movie? Go for something similar by incorporating a blue hue into your wedding day hairstyle in the form of a feathery clip. You could even make your own by using that antique brooch your grandmother passed down to you! Or if you are planning on wearing a traditional veil, sew a few tiny blue silk flowers at the bottom of your veil.

7.    Monogram. Embroidering your new initials in your favorite shade of blue thread onto your wedding gown is an understated, elegant and personalized way to add a bit of blue to your wedding dress.  Do it by yourself, with your mom, bridesmaids or other female relatives to really add that intimate touch! Martha Stewart Weddings had a similar idea!
