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 1, 2015Clear and Concise
"We liked this invitation because of the clear cut message it sends. It goes against the traditional wedding invitation in just about every way. We like that we were able to customize the text to read how we wanted and we weren't stuck with the one that came. The free colors were limited, but we were able to make them work for us without paying for a custom color. They are thick and hefty and the printing is very professionally done. We can't wait to send them out and get the reactions of the recipients."
February 24, 2015Loved it!
"I thought this was very well organized and so easy to read! It's got a very 20's/ Great Gatsby vibe. Just make sure you like gold glitter, although not real glitter, those sparkles really stand out."

February 20, 2015Destination LOVE!
"I loved these the minute I saw them and was so excited when my fiancé loved them, too! They are so simple, cute and perfect for our intimate and casual destination wedding. I had already used WPD for our save the dates and they were perfect, so it was the obvious choice for our invitations! The design process was simple and their review and editing afterwards is always helpful and really adds an extra touch and exceeds your expectations of an online printing service - most places wouldn't do that! It makes you feel more confident that an actual person is reviewing your wording, punctuation and etiquette and looking out for you. Thank you sooo much!!"
