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
April 24, 2015Great invitations
"We loved these invitations and so did our guests. We had serveral compliments on them. The proofing process and any changes we requested was pretty quick. I ordered them, proofed them twice (made one change) and the invitations were shipped the next day. Quick process!"
April 24, 2015Great Invitations!
"We have two wedding dates and wanted one invitation for both, and the folks at weddingpaperdivas were so helpful in the design process. They made the finished product look lovely, and really represent us as a couple. The colors are great, the print quality is perfect, and they matched up the fonts and sizing so that it all looked wonderful. We received so many compliments on our invitations, and you will too! :)"

March 24, 2015Beautiful invitation
"I made the invitations a dark blue color to match the color that I chose for my wedding. The quality and printing of the invitations were very good, they turned out even better then I thought they would. I love the whimsical design of the swirls, everything shown on the invitation is very clear and legible. You get exactly what you approve the designer to do. Everyone who received the invitation loved it. They thought it it was very pretty. I just wish it had a little more space for the reception information."

"I don't normally leave reviews, but I was so happy with these invites that I wanted to share my thoughts. The customer service was exceptional, the turn around rate for edits was fast and they arrived promptly. I had looked through hundreds of invites and searched several sites, but kept coming back to Wedding Paper Divas. Their prices were competitive and the invites are of strong beautiful quality. We needed clear wording with a delicate touch and these invites came through! I'm looking forward to mailing these out soon!!"
