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 4, 2013Great Invite
"I really like this invitation style. It's simple, initmate, and gorgeous. The quality of the paper is great. The only thing I noticed with the photos is after printing, they're not quite as sharp as they are in the digital version. I'm not sure if this is because of the type of paper used or what, but it didn't ruin the invitation for me. I still think it looks good. Another issue I had was the way the invites are packaged. They come in a shrink wrap, and it's difficult to get the plastic casing off without scratching the invitation itself. Luckly, it just scratched the last one, and I had ordered a few extra, so I just kept that one to be for myself. I customized my color and wording on the inside. It was remarkably easy. I just googled the values for the color I'm using (royal blue) and put in the values. It made me a little nervous since I couldn't see it in person beforehand, but it looks great."
November 20, 2013Vintage Romance Glam!
"These invitations are gorgeous! I was looking for an elegant wedding invitation which embodied the Vintage Romance theme that I was shooting for. I went to a few local shops and was told that the style I was looking for would cost me between $9-$12 an invite... which was just not going to happen. After a lot of frustration I found Wedding Paper Divas site and loved every sample that I ordered from them (at reasonable prices to boot!). When it came down to ordering the invite this one fit the bill beautifully. It was simple yet had a unique design and looks amazing on the black pocket folds that I ordered."

October 27, 2013Perfect Invitation
"This invitation is unique and entirely charming. The flowers on the front and back look like chalk drawings, which will be easy to replicate on chalk boards at our reception. In person, the invitation looks luxe and super personal - as if we had it designed just for us. We added text to the back at the invitation at no extra charge, which was a huge bonus. I'd highly recommend this design."
