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, 2015Beautiful design!
"Text has enough flourish while still being easily readable - and the writing was not too small, which was a problem with other invites we had considered! Nice thick paper, back design did not show through to the front. Tree image was very clear, not blurry or smudged. Love this design!"
March 19, 2015Cute, Simple But Great Statement
"Our wedding is going to be a great, laid back, simple environment - we were not looking for something extremely fancy. These came out very cute. We are very excited to send them out! And even better they came flawless in AMAZING time!"
March 16, 2015The card for us
"This is a great option for established couples making a public commitment. It feels very modern and fresh, but the paper and color give it a laid-back feel. It's a paper blend, so it comes out more grey and textured than a clean white card. The back detail is optional, but I would go for it!"
February 20, 2015So Impressed
"I loved this design from the beginning. It was perfect for our wedding theme; it has a nautical nod, which is what I was looking for. I was so excited for it to come and was even more impressed with it's timely arrival. These invitations, rsvp cards and enclosure cards exceeded my expectations and I am so happy with the final result. Worth every penny!"
February 3, 2015Awesome design and card
"Great design and paper quality. The customization process was very easy and I was able to add a Ganesh icon on the card for an Indian event, which made the card even more elegant. Delivery was super fast as well!"
