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
July 14, 2014Perfect card
"We were looking for a lavender as the primary color for our invitation and when we saw this one with the green accents (our secondary color), we instictavely knew it would be the right one for us! We were thrilled when we saw the sample and ordered them that day. The paper has a wonderful texture and weight. The ink color is not quite as lavender in person as it looks on the computer, but is still a very pretty color. AND we got the invitations over a week early...great service! Thank you for making this part of our wedding so easy."

"We did these in orange and the color was beautiful. We also changed the back design to be a sillouette engagement picture. Printing was great and delivered promptly. I had to reorder since we needed more invites than originally planned. Those were easy to reorder and came quicker than expected!"

"I loved this look but the brown was not in my color scheme and was nervous to do a color change and having to pay before I could see it. I loved the invite so much I decided to do it and I designed it how I wanted it and submitted it. within 10 mins I had a proof emailed to me and it was exactly what I had imagined. Super fast, super cute, super cheap, super awesome"
