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
January 23, 2015LOVE this invitation!
"I absolutely love this invitation design and quality! I fell in love with the teal standard colors because my wedding is teal with silver and pink accents. I ordered the sample first and was not pleased with the stock paper quality. I ordered my invitations with the pearl white shimmer paper and they look and feel beautiful! I am so excited to send my invitations out next week! Absolutely beautiful!! Just in case you didn't read the prompt Wedding Paper Divas shows, these do require the additional postage just because they are square size. $0.70 stamps required."
January 21, 2015Very pleased
"I ordered invitations for my wedding. We were very impressed with the invitations and response cards. We received multiple compliments on how "beautiful" the invitations were. The standard paper used is still a nice thickness and the little extra for the gold tone envelopes was money well spent. They arrived a day early. The entire process was effortless and I would highly recommend it to anyone."
January 17, 2015Unique and beautiful
"We loved the shell design and color options. We wanted certain text centered and other lines added and I was afraid it would be a hassle. The designer knew just what to do and they turned out exactly as we planned. The printing was flawless. We are so excited to send these out in a couple weeks!"
January 17, 2015Simple Elegance
"This invitation portrays a casual, but simple elegance. I chose the navy print to soften the presentation and ordered it on the recommended paper stock. It turned out beautiful! When I received it in the mail, it appeared even more exquisite and is exactly what I envisioned. I am very happy with this purchase."
December 21, 2014Pointsettia Perfection
"I ordered these invitations for my wedding and I could not be happier. We chose the amethyst invitations with shimmer paper and had the 'perfect poinsettia' design printed on the back of the cards as well. They turned out so wonderfully. Even my mother-in-law to be liked them. We also chose the gold envelopes and they look very elegant paired with the amethyst. Any concerns I had ordering online were not necessary. The order even arrived (internationally) in only 3 days! I definitely recommend this design."
