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.

October 24, 2014Great job!
"I was very happy with the cards that i got, i had to make some changes and i was upset but i realized that until they email you and press approve final order then they print them, i like that about them because i got to review them one more time and i got to make my changes. The cards are great quality and look exactly the same as the picture on the website! I am very happy with these cards!"
October 19, 2014Perfect!
"I am so pleased with the wedding invitations I ordered! The layout is simple and pretty, and I love the red on black. I uploaded a black and white picture to the front of the invitation, and it went perfectly with the chalkboard style! On the back, it was great to be able to add three more pictures for a variety! The quality of the paper and printing was excellent...nothing flimsy or un-professional at all! I am very impressed! Thank you, Wedding Paper Divas!"

"The invitations are perfect. The color matches the color scheme of my wedding and has a added special touch. Th quality of the paper is perfect and it doesn't feel cheap. The printing is elegant and modern. Everyone who recieved the invitations were writing to me to tell me how much they loved it. They said it was super classy!!"
October 11, 2014Gorgeous custom invitations
"I customized this invitation with a yellow to match my wedding colors. I added the pearl shimmer and ordered silver envelopes. They are amazing! For the price you can't beat it. I added a tiny rhinestone to the top and bottom scrolls and they look like something out of a magazine. I also ordered reception cards and will most likely be doing matching save the dates. Highly recommend!"
