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 29, 2015exactly what I wanted
"I was able to customize my invitations in the main background color that I had wanted. The invitations look amazing in majestic. The quality is great. And what my fiance and I love best is that the sentiment is unfettered; and, yet, so perfectly us. I cannot wait to send these out to my friends and loved ones."
March 25, 2015Classic Look
"I was able to customize the font and make a few small changes with the help of a designer to make this design exactly what I wanted! The only thing that was different when I received them was the gold border looks metallic gold on the screen, but is actually just printed to look gold, but I still love it! Thanks!"
March 23, 2015The perfect look for a smoky mountain wedding
"We are getting married in the Great Smoky mountains national park and once we laid eyes on these we knew they were perfect. Got them, they looked great and wears very happy with the price, quality and the purchase in general!"
March 22, 2015Whimsical and lovely!
"We wanted something simple but beautiful for our casual city hall wedding and this fit us perfectly. We had it ticket cut and printed it on the heavy paper, then paired it with kraft envelopes and vintage stamps. (The 1990 love stamps with birds on them.) We tried the foil version of this design as well, but it just looked too stiff for us."
March 22, 2015Simply Lovely
"The design for this invitation was perfect for our rustic fall wedding and we fell in love with it right away. We were so pleased when it arrived as the paper quality felt expensive and the design was even more beautiful in person (LOVE the branches on the back!). We would highly recommend upgrading to the kraft paper envelope for this one (it really brings out the coloring of the invite). The ONLY drawback to this design (for us) was that there was not an option to add RSVP/website information as we are managing this electronically vs. formal RSVP cards."
