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 2, 2015Lovely Invitations
"We absolutely loved sending these invitations. The classic design fit our wedding's theme perfectly and the thermography was the perfect touch to make them feel more luxe than standard printing. Everything arrived perfectly packaged and in great condition--could not have been an easier process. WPD was a delight to work with and quickly made changes and provided proofs. I would recommend these invitations - and this site - to anyone shopping for invitations."
December 29, 2014Perfect
"I got this card based on other reviews I read and I was so happy I chose them without ordering a sample. They are everything I wanted and more. The printing is worth every penny. I love the shimmer in the printing. The customer service was excellent and helped me several times. Be prepared to pay a little extra for postage. The paper quality was thick but not like a board. Very Elegant."

December 16, 2014Romantic and Timeless Invite
"We absolutely LOVE our invite. This design has a modern yet traditional feel and is slightly whimsical. We didn't like "our wedding" underneath the names and it wasn't a problem to remove it. Our guests love our invite, too. We're going to do something fun/creative with it after the wedding. The back of the card, ironically, matches one of the tiers on our cake. That was a bonus!"
