We all know the classic wedding rhyme that’s had every bride looking for last-minute blue accessories since the dawn of time. What most of us don’t know why we’re doing it! Traditionally, something blue is meant to represent fidelity in marriage. Hmm, maybe it is more important than we originally thought (jk, we’re sure you picked a good one). You could go with the classic blue shoes or jewelry, but for the bride who’s looking for something blue and NOT played out, we have just what you need!

No, your MOH is not your personal purse. A blue clutch is the perfect pop of color for your wedding day!

Your something blue doesn’t need to be seen by anyone but you (and yours, of course!)
3. Hair Piece
If you’re opting for an up do or even a flower crown, consider adding a blue element like a ribbon or a floral bun!
4. Blue-tiful Bouquet
An elegant white and green bouquet is perfectly complimented by blue flowers! Besides, who doesn’t need a little extra luck while walking in those heels down the aisle?

You could go for a classic French, but a nice pale blue at the tips does the trick too! For the bold bride, go for our fave bridal color “Borrowed & Blue” by Essie.
