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.

"I wanted a beach themed invitation for my vow renewals. I did not want a typical beach theme though. This design fit the bill. A floral ocean theme. The beautiful vintage flowers with the ocean is just so unique and beautiful! I love it. The paper quality is gorgeous as well. Love everything about it! Received tons of compliments. delivery could have been a little quicker....."

"I honestly cannot say enough about the customer service, customization process, and this beautiful invitation! I was SO nervous to order my wedding invitations online, but I will be telling all my friends to order from wedding paper divas! I was able to COMPLETLY customize my invitations and RSVP's to have the exact format and look I was wanting. Upgrading to the thicker paper is completely worth it for the price! I am beyond happy."
June 17, 2015need better ability to print proofs
"I absolutely love these invitations. The paper is gorgeous and the printing is perfect. The die cut I ordered is such a nice touch! Perfect. But, if you can't print out a proof easily, then there is potential for error. So.... Advice! Please call this company to send you a proof or digital email if you need to see and make corrections on paper and not the computer screen. Super customer service. If only all companies were like this one! Sincerely, Barb"
June 15, 2015Exactly what I wanted..!!
"I absolutely loved these invitations. I changed the color scheme to "rich red" and it looked perfect for my early fall wedding. I also had them write something on the back of the invite, and they totally understood what I was asking, and the finished product looked absolutely fabulous. I also wanted to call and speak with someone about my request to have some text printed on the back, and the gentleman that I spoke with was extremely professional and helpful. I ordered both my save the dates and invitations from this company and have been nothing short of 100% satisfied. Not to mention, I finalized my order on a Tuesday, and it was at my door on Saturday..so so fast!! It was awesome!"
