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 2, 2013Expectation met
"After stressing about my invitation for a month, I stumbled across this site. It was so simple to find what I wanted, edit it to my liking, and order! I got my order within 5 business days as promised and I couldn't have been happier! The floral detail looks like it was hand painted on each card. Be sure you upgrade to the shimmer paper, you won't be disappointed!"

"After looking at samples from a number of different companies I decided to order my wedding invitations from Wedding Paper Divas and I'm really glad I did! I submitted my artwork and within 2 days they had a digital proof for me to look at. I even received a phone call to let me know it had been sent. At this time I decided to make a quick change and they had a new proof to me within the hour. I was expecting to wait a couple weeks before receiving them but within 2 days of approving my final artwork they were already at my door! They look great, feel great and I'm so excited to send them out! Thank you for your excellent customer service!! I will highly recommend you to anyone I know that needs invitations and will be sure to come to you again when I need anything else!"
