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
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!!!"

"We added certain things to the invitation to make it more personalized to us which was no problem at all. This company is great at editing everything to your liking. The purple is beautiful and the flowers on the back look awesome! I can't wait to send these out!!"

""Designers were easy to work with and helped my customize. Shipping was fast and came exactly when expected, and items were great quality. My only tiny gripe is that the design seemed to have sparkle in it on the website, but when it arrived the glittered sections were not glittery, just printed to look as if they were. Not a big deal at all, but should be noted. Live chat was very helpful too.""
February 8, 2015Simple and lovely
"Beautiful, simplistic invitation if you want something classic and pretty without the bells and whistles. Perfect for my beach wedding. Be sure to use the "chat" feature for any questions you may have in designing the invite- these people know their stuff! Even if they don't have the answer right away, they find it for you! Very pleased with all my WPD purchases."

"I read some other reviews stating that the color effects make the paper look dirty. We chose the blue theme as it matches the colors for our wedding and think it turned out beautiful. They are simple yet elegant and we couldn't be happier with the result. The customer service and speed in which we received the final product from the time we placed the final order is impeccable."
