I Hue: The Best Choices for Your “Something Blue”

Besides Dad, a hankie, and comfortable shoes, every bride needs four precious items: something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. Many brides are finding creative and unusual ways to incorporate the color into their wedding day trousseaux.

    Bridal Hanky

    You’re going to need one anyway, so why not make this pretty embroidered handkerchief do double duty?


     

  • Sapphire Ring

    When you choose a sapphire in your engagement stone, the luck of your “something blue” will be with you always.

  • Glass Heart Charm

    This glass ornament will look beautiful tied around a bouquet or even tucked into a garter. After the wedding, it’ll be a beautiful keepsake whether it’s in your scrapbook or hanging on your rearview mirror. ($30, Dogeared)

  • Embroidered Lace Lingerie

    The bride who chooses these soft knit panties can give a Mona Lisa smile as friends and family ask what her “something blue” may be. Only the groom gets to know the real answer.

  • Peacock Garter

    One of the most time-honored ways of incorporating a little blue into your day is to wear a blue garter. Make it even more fun with a custom peacock garter, available by special order from The Garter Girl.

  • Blue Shoes

    Stylish brides know that a surprising pop of color can really make an outfit. These blue shoes will definitely do the trick. 

  • Blue Wedding Gown

    A small splash of color just isn’t enough for some brides. There’s no law that says the “something blue” can’t be your dress.

  • Blue Jewelry

    Your ring finger would get lonely if it was the only part of your body wearing diamonds. A pair of understated blue topaz and diamond earrings will go with any dress and be a stylish statement for years after the wedding. 

  • Hair Pins

    These small pins won’t detract attention from your dress or other jewelry, but they will fulfill the cherished tradition. 

  • Brooch

    A brooch can be pinned on the outside or inside of a dress, near the heart or near the hem, or can even be worn in the hair or on the handle of the bouquet. 

  • Delphinium Boutonniere

    Don’t leave your groom out of the tradition. A blue boutonniere makes an elegant addition to any suit or tuxedo. ($19.95, McAdams Floral)

  • Nail Polish

    Ten blue fingernails might clash a bit with a proper bridal gown, but on the toes they’re kicky and fun. Try OPI Blue My Mind.
