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 13, 2015Impressive
"I was very impressed with the entire process from the selection, to the pricing, to the customer service, to the quality! If I could, I would buy all my wedding stuff from this company (beyond paper items!) I highly recommend Wedding Paper Divas!"
July 3, 2015Whimsical card
"The designer of the card was great. They reworked the spacing because my information was a lot more than the sample. They were really able to make the card feel like it was made for my wedding"
July 1, 2015Beautiful and Classy
"I am so happy with these invitations! They are simple, yet beautiful and classy. I wanted to put all the information (reception and all) on one card, and I needed to make a second set in another language. The designer followed my instructions perfectly and made great suggestions to fit the text on the page. They turned out even better than expected. The paper quality (I used the shimmer paper) was excellent. I would recommend the shimmer paper. I can't say enough about the service as well. The proofs were done so quickly, the people on the phone were amazing and friendly and the package was delivered days ahead of time. The only hiccup I had was that they were unable to tell me what the customs/duties would be so I had to just keep my fingers crossed. In the end, it wasn't so expensive (about $60 for Canada). I would recommend Wedding Paper Divas to any bride-to-be!"

June 18, 2015the perfect wedding invitation i was looking for
"I have recently ordered this in the gold text with the white envelopes. Quality of paper, text and colours were brilliant, clear resolution and of fine quality. All personal design requests that i had made were dealt with in no time, quick, friendly helpful service. All ordered online, did not have to telephone or get in contact with anyone, was a simple and easy process overall. Delivery of this item was much faster than i had anticipated, as it was an international delivery it was delivered within 2 working days, which i am very pleased with as i was told it would take up to 5-11 days. Very pleased with this product and with Wedding Paper Divas, especially as this was my first time coming across this website and purchasing from here. i will most definitely recommend this card for someone who is looking for a simple yet elegant wedding invitation. I will also be ordering from Wedding Paper Divas again as i am really impressed with the service, quality and range of choice."
