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.

June 7, 2015Amazing service, gorgeous invitation
"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."
April 24, 2015Great Invitations!
"We have two wedding dates and wanted one invitation for both, and the folks at weddingpaperdivas were so helpful in the design process. They made the finished product look lovely, and really represent us as a couple. The colors are great, the print quality is perfect, and they matched up the fonts and sizing so that it all looked wonderful. We received so many compliments on our invitations, and you will too! :)"

"We were able to personalive this card by adding extra information and then having it re-centered. This is was done quickly and without problems! The quality of the paper is very elegant. My guests loved them! Also, if you order the rsvp cards, they will fit in the invitation's envelope."
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!"
