This week, our guest blogger, Georgia Selih, writes about how to incorporate blue into your bridal look. Whether it’s part of your wedding dress or how you accessorize, bring some blue into your bridal party.
No matter how unique and funky you want your wedding day to be, some traditions remain, and they are as magical as ever. That being said, “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” is still a rhyme that can make your wedding look even more special. As a good luck charm, your something blue is supposed to symbolize purity, love and fidelity. Take a look at different, interesting ways you can add a touch of that whimsical blue to your bridal outfit.
Your something blue can be your bridal bouquet. After all, with blue standing for purity, flowers are the perfect choice to hold that meaning. Of course, you don’t have to go for all-blue flowers. Some of the most beautiful flowers in this elegant shade are Delphinium, Hydrangea, Blue Thistle, Tweedia and Muscari.
You can always have your something blue as a part of your wedding gown. This can be a wedding sash/ribbon or a belt, matched with gloves or a purse. However, there are more and more absolutely stunning wedding dresses that feature intricate embroidery in a soft, blue shade. Not only is this a great way to incorporate something blue, but it also looks romantic, elegant and unique at the same time.
Once Carrie Bradshaw presented her stunning blue wedding shoes, brides-to-be went crazy over this trend. Of course, your shoes can be of whatever color you want, but there’s just something special about blue bridal high heels, be it a bold and vibrant shade of blue or a muted, pastel baby blue.
This is the safest option on this list. In general, the majority of brides who want a traditional wedding and dream of a princess-like bridal look, opt for a blue garter for their something blue. It’s there for good luck but it’s not for the world to see.
You can create a subtle yet romantic and elegant effect with blue hair accessories. For example, one statement hair piece that’s intricate in design is a great way to complete your bridal look. Moreover, if you’re planning a nature-inspired wedding, you may want to consider a bluish flower headband as well.
One of the most glamorous — but also the simplest — ways to incorporate something blue in your wedding look is through jewelry, of course. What’s more, there’s no rule that says that you have to use a specific shade of blue. Therefore, you can enjoy some elegant sapphires, boho turquoise pieces and even the mystical abalone jewelry that’s more on the bluish side.
Nails and makeup
If you want to add some of your unique spirit and personality to the wedding mix, a great way to do so is by rocking some unconventional makeup and/or nail color. You can create many interesting nail looks with blue as the main color. However, true art comes from blue-inspired makeup looks.
Whatever you decide to go for, make sure that it’s a solution you like best. Your wedding day is all about you and your partner, so do your best to make decisions that will make you feel perfectly happy and content.
