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
June 29, 2015I am ECSTATIC!
"I am ecstatic about the whole transaction of my wedding invitation and RSVP card. Once I submitted my customized text, someone actually CARED . . . edited it for perfection. Getting married in 2015 is easier (and somewhat under more of my control) than it was in 1994. :-)"

June 18, 2015Beautiful card
"I love my invitations. The only thing is the color I thought was going to be a brighter yellow. It came out a little darker than I expected. Also, the gray flower came out like mirror. Thought it would be a matte gray. But other than that I love my cards. Very chic!"
