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.
Blue wedding invitations is a perfect style to announce your news. Wedding Paper Divas provides various styles and shades of blue such as light blue, dark blue, bright blue, royal blue, sky blue, sapphire blue and more.

"This invitation turned out exactly like the sample that I designed. I was concerned because this was the first time I ordered invitations on the net. If I had more time I would have placed a picture on the back of the invitation. I had to alter almost everything in print to fit my situation. This was easy and painless. The script I ordered was pretty and easy to follow. The paper quality was durable and the flower design was distinctive. I order it in lilac. Friends have remarked that the invitation was beautiful."

May 21, 2015Exceeded our Expectations!!
"First off, it took us months to finally decide on the look we wanted for our wedding invitations. From the beginning, I'd already settled on Weddingpaperdivas though.. Their selection is simply amazing!! And the price?!? Nice!! I spent about a week going back and forth with the designers at weddingpaperdivas until my card was just right! They were so patient and fast!! I got the exact color, helpful suggestions, reassurance and most of all ,the cards came back looking fabulous. We've gotten nothing but compliments on these. I was so hesitant ordering my invites without holding a sample of the final product in my hand but again, my designers reassured me it would be great. When I opened the box I was wowed!!! They came out even better than I could have imagined. Thank you weddingpaperdivas!! These invitations actually reignited my excitement for this most special day."
