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.

Customer reviews of our Blue Wedding Invitations and Invites
July 16, 2014Great!
"We ordered a sample with the blue trees and red writing. We liked it, but decided to order our invites with the brown writing. It looks so much better that way! We are having a winter wedding, so we thought the blue tree looks like it was covered in ice and the brown is more natural looking than the red writing."

"I loved this design as soon as I saw it. But it took me a while to decide since they didn't have samples to mail. I chose different fonts for my invitations, and decided to purchase them. They are perfect! Exactly what the name says. The delivery was made before the dates they had sent me on the confirmation, which was a great surprise since I couldn't wait to see them! They came in a pretty box and it was a very protected packaging! I am extremely proud to give these to my guests!"
