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
November 23, 2014Wonderful Service
"The invitations were beautiful! I had ordered samples from here and about 5 other places. When I asked friends to help me choose, they always narrowed it down to WPD cards only. Everyone called me to tell me how pretty the invitations were. Having the stylist to check everything and make necessary changes was also really helpful. The invitation was a little pricey, but well worth the cost."

November 19, 2014Online version does not do card justice!
"I opted to personalize my invitations slightly, changed all of the pink to green and was i ever impressed with how everything turned out. It is nice when you pay for a product when it gets delivered and you exclaim, "This is WAY nicer than i had hoped for". Truly these invitations are gorgeous."
