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.
Customer reviews of our Blue Wedding Invitations and Invites
December 18, 2014Great way to show off engagement pics!
"We picked this card because of the amount of photos on it. The quality of the paper is great. The photo quality was good too, my only complaint is that it is more of a matte look, which brings made the photos not quite as sharp. The custom color option was great and I loved being able to view a copy before it was printed."
December 12, 2014Perfect!
"I personalized this card using the preset color "Marigold" and filled in the information I wanted on the card. I had trouble getting the information I wanted to fit myself, so I left a comment to the editor and they did exactly what I asked for! They came in the mail about 5 days early, and they were perfect! I cannot wait to send them out for all my family and friends to see :)"
December 11, 2014Perfect Invites!
"We got the save-the-dates earlier along the same theme, and were pumped we found these invites to match. They look great, & they fit perfectly with our vintage-winery theme. Everything arrived early, packaged together, everything is organized, pulled together... exactly what I need right now in the wedding planning process!"
December 10, 2014Gorgeous Wedding Invitations
"It was simple to drag pictures onto this card. I loved the feedback I received from mthe designer before my order was processed. I really like the thickness of the paper but if I were to do it again I would order glossy paper. People who have seen the invite love it and we absolutely love the invitations as well!"
