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
May 21, 2015Great Card
"The cards came very fast. They looked exactly like they did online. I got the free paper option and the paper was a thicker paper, decent quality. I am happy with the cards. I loved the different shape of the card."
May 21, 2015Keepsake Invitation
"Loved the clean design and was impressed with the color choices and the ability to personalize most of the text. This option allowed us to get away from the formal language and make a statement about the experience we would like to have with our guests. We personalized with a photo on the back and I know our families will keep these. I did print on the double thick paper which gives it more of a presence. The colors are bright and the design is printed clean and sharp. I can't wait to get this design for the rest of our wedding goods!"
