We think the last of your four traditional good luck charms, something blue, is the one that you get to have the most fun with! The possibilities are endless. They can be as big and bold as having blue bridesmaids dresses or as small and subdued as a turquoise pendant around your neck or little blue sapphire earrings.
Something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity. This part of the tradition began in ancient Israel, when brides would wear a blue ribbon in their hair or on the edge of their dresses to symbolize loyalty.
How about letting your fingers do the talking and paint your nails in a gorgeous pastel shade? Or, step away from the traditional white lace wedding undies and surprise him with something fancy and blue underneath!
Shoes are another great option, most brides aren’t wearing ‘wedding shoes’ anymore – most bridal shops don’t even carry them! So, choose something that is unique and you! How about some blue suede shoes?
Or, incorporate blue into your bouquet. Tie it up with a piece of blue lace or tuck a good luck charm into your bouquet. Include some delphinium, cornflower, tweedia, irises, hydrangea, grape hyacinth, forget-me-knots and thistles.
