I'm sure you have heard of the saying 'Something old, something new, something, borrowed, something blue' which is a wedding tradition for the bride to give her good luck on her wedding day.
'Something Old' stands for continuity, 'Something New' stands for optimism for the future, 'Something borrowed' symbolizes borrowed happiness, and 'Something blue' represents purity, love, and fidelity.
There are all kinds of ways to incorporate your 'Something Blue'. I have found some fantastic options for you.
The purpose of a garter is to hold your stockings up. There is no correct leg to wear it on, it is your preference. Many brides wear two, one to toss and one to keep.
If your colour theme is blue and your wearing a plain colour dress you could totally wear blue shoes. Wear with a shorter dress style to show them off.
Have your family write good luck messages in blue pen on the bottom of your shoes.
A fancy corsage may be just the accessory for your arm if you are wearing a sleeveless dress.
Add a slight hint of blue with your earrings. Drop earrings look stunning or choice studs for an understated look.
Why not add a blue ribbon to your bridal bouquet.
A clever idea is to paint your nails blue, again this option may mach your theme depending on the shade.
