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 6, 2015Beautiful card, love the card texture!
"Great design with a tint of nostalgia. WPD designers are easy to work with - incorporated more wording on the back of the card at my request. Customer service was also top notch. My cards were delayed - WPD happily sent me another batch for next day delivery. Would definitely recommend this design and WPD in general to friends."
July 2, 2015Great Card!
"I was so afraid to order my shipment without seeing the exact card proof but I love them! I had ordered the LINEN background because others had recommended it, and instead of the textured I ordered the PEARL WHITE SHIMMER for a more modern look. I couldn't be happier with them. It looks like, from other reviewers, you really have to change the background to linen if you want the shimmer. I hadn't liked the roughness of the original sample. The red is a bit on the pink side but not too much. The designers were able to put the little Ganesh in the top circle for me which I was very impressed with! I definitely recommend!"

"Absolutely love how the cards turned out! We received so many complements from our family and friends. I used one of our engagement shots and added the ceremony details to personalize. The process was simple and shipping was fast. Customer service was excellent too."
July 1, 2015weddign Vow renewal invite
"I wanted a beach themed invitation for my vow renewals. I did not want a typical beach theme though. This design fit the bill. A floral ocean theme. The beautiful vintage flowers with the ocean is just so unique and beautiful! I love it. The paper quality is gorgeous as well. Love everything about it! Received tons of compliments. delivery could have been a little quicker....."

"I honestly cannot say enough about the customer service, customization process, and this beautiful invitation! I was SO nervous to order my wedding invitations online, but I will be telling all my friends to order from wedding paper divas! I was able to COMPLETLY customize my invitations and RSVP's to have the exact format and look I was wanting. Upgrading to the thicker paper is completely worth it for the price! I am beyond happy."
