In the days where lots of brides are breaking from traditional wedding rituals, one particular one tends to stay tried and true: Having some old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Why you ask? The answer is simple, it is fun! And with blue bridal jewelry being the new “it” color when it comes to accessories a bride can use this is her advantage in every single one of these traditions. Below is a rundown of how to work bridal jewelry into this cherished ritual in different and unique ways.
Something Old: A bride can find something old that is blue in many different ways. Some of the most popular being the vintage hankie to keep in your bag, so why not add some blue beading to it and have the best of both worlds? Also, vintage jewelry often comes in colors of blue. Brooches with blue rhinestones are abundant and can be the pop of color you need to complete your look while keeping the blue theme simple. Blue vintage earrings, bracelets and necklaces also fit the bill.
Something New: This, of course, is the easiest of all. There is plethora of choices from which to choose. Brides usually go for a blue wedding garter, which is fine, but think of getting a little more creative. How about blue rhinestone bouquet pins to add that blue color and bling to your bridal bouquet? Another popular trend is blue bridal shoes to really make your look pop. New blue bridal jewelry is abundant as well. Even wedding dresses come in lovely shades of light blues for that romantic look.
Something Borrowed: This may be the hardest to achieve in the color blue, but it is not impossible. Ask friends and relatives if they have any blue jewelry that may work. Don’t rule out digging through grandma’s or mom’s jewelry box to see if there is something exquisite in their treasures. Even if you find a blue pendant, you can add a new chain for the big day and return the borrowed piece after the wedding. Again, someone may have a blue hankie for you to keep on hand on the big day. Another great idea is to see if anyone has a blue evening bag or clutch for you to carry as your bridal purse. Mixing and matching colors on your wedding day is now trendy, so why not go with it?
