As they say, "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue."
The "something blue" is a tradition that's still practiced today by brides all over the world. While "something old" and "something new" are usually easy to find, their color counterpart can be a bit trickier.
If you're looking for some original ways to include the color blue in your wedding, here are some good ideas! From your bridal bouquet and decorations to the drinks you serve, there's always a way to add a touch of blue to your big day.
#1 "Something Blue" in Your Wedding Decor
One of the easiest ways to incorporate the color blue into your wedding is with decorations! You can add a splash with some simple blue vases or centerpieces, as well as the tablecloths, the signs and cards, or even the lighting with candles or hanging spotlights.

#2 Blue Drinks!
How about offering some delicious cocktails with a blue touch to refresh everyone? It could be a blackberry mojito, or you and your partner can get creative and invent your own cocktail.
You could also offer non-alcoholic drinks of the same color, like a delicious lemonade made with blue spirulina.
#3 A Cool Touch to the Cake or Dessert Table
While we're on the subject of refreshments, the cake or dessert table's a fun way to include "something blue" in your wedding.
Your cake doesn't have to be completely blue, but it could have a few strokes of the color. As for the dessert table, you could request that there be cupcakes or cookies with blue coating, jellies, and chocolates covered with blue candy!

#4 Blue Jewelry
A discreet and elegant way to wear "something blue" is in your jewelry. Your earrings could be this color or just have a few small, simple touches of it. Another option is to choose a necklace with some stunning blue stones.
Blue's a color that works well with all skin tones, so rest assured that your face and neck will look fabulous with this tone.
#5 Blue in Your Shoes
What if you wear blue shoes? It's definitely a fun way to include the color in your bridal outfit!
Shoes are a pretty important accessory in your wedding, and wearing bright blue ones can give a unique touch to your final look. The contrast of the white of your dress with some beautiful blue heels will catch everyone's attention, while also having the whole outfit look great in photos!
