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
March 27, 2015Super Cute Invites!
"I customized these invites with shades of purple and sage. They were SO cute!! I was worried it would be a very time consuming and frustrating task because I had to customize quite a bit including the main wording and didn't know if it could be done. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was and how nice their customer service is. The quality was very good and the standard paper it came in was nice and thick. These will perfectly compliment our outdoor, rustic wedding!"

March 27, 2015Simple yet elegant
"I was looking for an invitation design that was simple yet elegant, and I found it in the Modish Marriage Signature Foil Wedding Invitation. The foil added that special touch. I also liked the size of the font for the bride's and groom's name. I liked this design so much that the only changes I made were the color of the paper (to white), the color of the foil (to silver), and the color of the font (to purple). I was even able to add our initials to the back, and "Est. 2015.""
March 26, 2015Beautiful Card
"Everything about this wedding invite was perfect to me. It is simple and elegant. I got it on the pearl shimmer paper, and it came out beautifully. Not sparkly, but just a little hint of shimmer in the design. I am having an outdoor wedding, and I think the design fits with that style wedding. Also, it shipped SO quickly. I got these in the mail less than a week after I placed the original order. So happy with every WPD order I've placed!"
