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
March 27, 2015Very pleased with invites
"I really appreciated the proofing process. I wanted to make some changes to the wording of the invite. The changes came back more quickly than I expected, and I appreciated the edits for consistency. I was very pleased with the paper and design quality as well."
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."
March 23, 2015Delicate and Beautiful
"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!!"
March 8, 2015I love it
"Honestly the card came out exactly how I wanted. I based our engagement photo shoot around getting this shot for our invitations. It came out great. here was a minor hiccup that both my fiance, myself and WPD missed with a spelling but it was quickly corrected and new invites sent out within days. I am so so so happy with the invites and Kat was amazing on the phone. Doing this online saved me so much money. I am so happy with the final product."
February 23, 2015Class and sophisticaled
"I love my invitations, response cards and reception cards! I am not into the new modern invitations with lots of color and designs. I was looking for a "classic" look - black and white - and this inviation had that. I was a little hesitant of the deisgn at the stop, but once I held the invite in person, I couldn't have been happier. It really is beautiful! It's clear they packaged the invites with care and attention. I can't say enough great things about this invitation and wedding paper divas! Thank you!!!"
