Hello Bride Beauties! Behold: brilliant ideas for your something blue! What a special tradition it is to collect all things borrowed, old, new and blue. We have gathered these concepts from close friends and were greatly inspired by our recent photo shoot with so many beautiful blue details.
Let your veil tell the story.
Our personal favorite is when brides make their veil their something blue. The veil pictured below is so appropriately named “Something Blue” designed by Kathryn to compliment any blushing bride.
Daddy’s little girl.
While your dad might be feeling a little bit blue on your wedding day, a great way to honor your number one man is to sew a piece of an old blue shirt of his to the inside of your dress. This is a great way to have him close to you even as he gives you away.
We love blue bling!
Borrow a family heirloom and wear it as your something blue. The stunning earrings photographed in our Veils on Pointe shoot and featured below are actually Kathryn Ann’s great grandmother Mimi’s earrings. It is so special to incorporate family into every aspect of the day, especially when they can walk down the aisle with you.
Make your shoes your something blue!
Perfectly tucked under your dazzling gown, you can hide some baby blue pumps or even some deep navy flats to showcase this treasured tradition.
A little something blue underneath your gown.
No one has to know what your something blue is; that can be between you and your new hubby! A great way to uphold this longtime tradition is by sneaking a little something blue underneath your dress. A blue garter or some lacey blue undies are a fun surprise for your man to discover later on in the evening.
Use blooms to incorporate your blue!
An elegant way to fuse your something blue into your ceremony is by utilizing your blooms. A beautiful way to do this is by using satin blue ribbon to tie the knot around your bouquet. You can also use blue blooms as your something blue by wearing Kathryn Ann’s “Love Me True” veil (photographed below). This veil is a lovely kiss of ice-blue silk petals to follow you as you glide down the aisle.
Whether you choose a precious family heirloom, a piece of your dad's shirt or an exquisite blue veil, your something blue is sure to be one of the most cherished pieces of your wedding day.
With lots of love and a love for blue hues—
