This is truly one of the wedding traditions that have stood the test of time. We read about lots of lovely ways in which a Bride incorporates this tradition into her wedding day. The something old – often heirloom jewelry, the something new – in most cases the dress or shoes, the something borrowed – a necklace or veil, and today we’re discussing the something blue, as there are just so many gorgeous ways to incorporate this elegant shade into your big day. From flowers to dresses, to table wear, it’s a classic look that never fails to look beautiful. And for the ultimate complementary look, elegant white gold De Beers diamond jewelry is perfect.
Using blue as the main color in your palette for your wedding day creates a very classic and elegant look, which will call for your jewelry to be equally elegant too, and if you’re very lucky, a piece of De Beers Bridal jewelry could be your something new. A blue scheme calls for stunning white gold and a scattering of white diamonds to add that much-needed sparkle to your day. De Beers jewelry has the perfect combination of heritage and exquisite design, while capturing an essence of romance and still feels contemporary, and most importantly very wearable and extremely covetable.
Blue tableware really creates a sense of calm in your reception area – we just loved the dark blue table linen used in this wedding from M&J Photography, combined with gold chairs and bright pink blooms, it created a look that was reminiscent of a colorful Hindu wedding.
To create a more rustic, coastal look, combine different shades of blue (like in the shoot above by Melanie Gabrielle found on Chic Vintage Brides). Empty Neal’s Yard or Bombay Sapphire bottles look gorgeous, and Ikea, H&M, and Zara Home are our go-to places for colorful (and cheap) tableware.
A pair of blue statement shoes are always a good idea and the pairs in our mood board above are absolute beauties. The royal blue Manolo’s are an iconic pair of shoes (as worn by RMW Bride Elizabeth, Carrie Bradshaw, and Olivia Palermo…) And if you’re looking for something a little softer, the baby blue court shoes with bows are just divine – check out Ted Baker for similar styles.
Why not have your bridesmaids as your something blue? We love the range of colors and styles from Monsoon, Maids to Measure and Twobirds – you’ll find baby blues, royal blues, navy blues and sky blues…something to keep everyone happy and to suit every wedding style.
We love seeing blue blooms in bouquets – it’s a color that’s often neglected when it comes to the wedding flowers, but it’s a shade that just looks so beautiful. Bouquets above contain blue hyacinth, stocks and white anemones with blue centers.
However you incorporate your “something blue”, it will indicate your fidelity, honor (ever hear the phrase “true blue?”), and love.
