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
July 14, 2015Elegant and classy
"I am so happy with my invitations. The quality of the paper is great...weighty and perfectly textured. The design is so elegant. The only thing I would say is that they are smaller than I expected but I was reading that's that is a good thing as it saves on postage! Service was also prompt and a pleasant experience."
July 2, 2015Gorgeous Wedding Invites
"I ordered these for my wedding invitations, and they came our gorgeous! I loved the design and the color options they offered. I went with the square option, and used the cream colored background and solid color for the back design. I love that the paper is already shimmery, which also adds to the design. I did think the paper was a little thin, and maybe I should have ordered a thicker paper, but overall all I was very happy with my order and my invitations! My order also arrived earlier than expected."

"Loved my pearlized invites! Didn't want them to be overly fancy but had just the right amount of delicate and they are beautiful!"
June 28, 2015Gorgeous!
"I used these for my wedding invitations and everyone who received them RAVED! They are nice and thick and printed beautifully. DO NOT forget to include the reception information on your invite like I did! I had the church information but failed to include location and start time for the cocktail hour! It simply says "reception to follow." I also took these incites and glued them into a pocket fold that was gold. I put stickers with our initials on them to seal the pocket fold. Looked AMAZING"
