There are four customary good luck tokens for a bride as she embarks on her wedding day taken from an old English poem. Something old, something new. Something borrowed, something blue.
Something old signifies family, heritage and tradition. Something new represents the bride entering into her new marriage. Something borrowed is meant to be an item on lend from someone in an exemplary marriage. Lastly, something blue is based on the color of wedding gowns before the 19th century when brides began wearing white.
Traditional ideas of something blue include a blue garter or lingerie, a blue handkerchief, blue shoes or a monogram in blue thread sewn into the bride's wedding dress. Today there are even more unique ways to have something blue at your wedding. Brides are wearing blue toenail polish, blue jewelry and blue hair accessories.
There are wonderful ways to incorporate blue into a wedding, such as blue wedding invitations, a blue sash on the wedding gown, blue flowers and blue bride’s maids’ dresses. Not only is something blue an ode to the traditional wedding custom, but blue is stylish and classic. The color of the sky and the ocean, blue is the most soothing of all colors.
Whether you are planning to send out blue wedding invitations or using blue flowers on your wedding cake, infusing some blue into your wedding will surely inspire a long and happy marriage.

Customer reviews of our Blue Wedding Invitations and Invites
July 3, 2015Whimsical card
"The designer of the card was great. They reworked the spacing because my information was a lot more than the sample. They were really able to make the card feel like it was made for my wedding"

July 2, 2015Gorgeous Wedding Invites
"I ordered these for my wedding invitations, and they came our gorgeous! I loved the design and the color options they offered. I went with the square option, and used the cream colored background and solid color for the back design. I love that the paper is already shimmery, which also adds to the design. I did think the paper was a little thin, and maybe I should have ordered a thicker paper, but overall all I was very happy with my order and my invitations! My order also arrived earlier than expected."
July 1, 2015Very happy with my invitations!
"The quality was better than I imagined! I picked the pearl finish instead of the matte and I am SO glad I did. It cost a little extra but I felt like it was worth it. My invitations came out beautiful and elegant. The rose gold foil really added to the card's elegance. It was exactly what I wanted and I was very, very happy with it! It even came before the expected date. The process was really easy. When I called to ask a question, I was helped by a really nice lady who answered all my questions and made it easy for me. And when I emailed to change and add something on my invitations during the review process, they did exactly what I wanted and everything was done in a timely manner. I asked to personalize the card by adding "Together with their parents" at the top of the card and it turned out great. I wanted the parents to be included in the invitation. Loved it."
