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.

June 15, 2015Exactly what I wanted..!!
"I absolutely loved these invitations. I changed the color scheme to "rich red" and it looked perfect for my early fall wedding. I also had them write something on the back of the invite, and they totally understood what I was asking, and the finished product looked absolutely fabulous. I also wanted to call and speak with someone about my request to have some text printed on the back, and the gentleman that I spoke with was extremely professional and helpful. I ordered both my save the dates and invitations from this company and have been nothing short of 100% satisfied. Not to mention, I finalized my order on a Tuesday, and it was at my door on Saturday..so so fast!! It was awesome!"
June 10, 2015Awesome Autumn
"So beautiful! I wanted something that had that Fall feel without being "in your face" this design pays tribute to fall, but is subtle and abstract enough to not overwhelm the person reading the invitation. I also chose a different font so it would be easier to read, I suggest "Ameial" for the names and "Full Circle Bold" for the rest of the information."

"I was not going to order from wedding paper divas because it was a little more expensive than other sites. But I kept coming back to this design. It matched our wedding theme and colors perfectly and it was so stunning. I paid extra for the rounded corners, which was worth it because it made the invitation look so classy. I love love love this suite. I'm beyond impressed, this was well worth the money. My order even arrived early! I would definitely recommend wedding paper divas to anyone getting married."
