Oh no, please, ditch this ridiculous garter – from a shrunken denim jacket to a unicorn tattoo, here are eight bright ideas for a Something Blue, to share with brides-to-be around you.
Anything Blue July Edition – The Borrowed, the New, the Old and the Blue, 8 ideas for a Something Blue
1 – Something rock-and-blue (featured picture from rusticweddingchic.com)
Is it the contrast between the rock-and-roll fabric and the virginal white dress? Funkier than the classic white pashmina, a denim jacket over a wedding gown is a winning combo.
2 – Something swimming pool blue
Dive into your future with turquoise pumps on, and not just any pumps: this pair of blue suede shoes belong to London fashion designer Charlotte Olympia’s extensive collection of shoes and handbags for women.
3 – Something just for Me & You
“I love you”, “August 6th, 2016″ or even “See you later, lover-gator”, whichever your personal message to your groom is, engrave it on a open-disc silver bracelet by Merci Maman and give it to him in the morning of your D-day.
Then get a twin bracelet for yourself (with the same, or a different inscription). Voodoo-bless this cute Toi & Moi set on the wedding’s eve with your bridesmaids, and voila: 50 years of happiness guaranteed!
4 – Something tattoo
Just for this one special day, get this tiny blue Cartolina bird by Tattly inside your wrist, or hide this cute unicorn by Pepperink behind your knee (or elsewhere) for your groom to discover it after the wedding.
5 – Something floral blue
Bride or bridesmaids bouquet, table centerpieces, the trend is for simple blue wedding flowers.
With blue hues ranging from marine to cornflower, hydrangeas look stunning in wedding pictures, especially in the Summer according to Campbells Flowers blog (picture below).
By the way, do you know how to grow blue hydrangeas? If your soil is not naturally rich in granite, bury an iron key or some pieces of cut slate inside the bunch’s soil. Your white or pink flowers will turn blue.
6 – Something modern new
As all former brides can remember, the moment when you just don’t know what to do with your bridal bouquet happens quite fast after the wedding ceremony. You’d like to hold your groom’s hand and enjoy a much-deserved glass of champagne? It usually means sacrificing the flowers. Except… if you can hang your bouquet to your wrist! That’s the point of a floral pomander bowl (pictured below).
Ask your flower specialist to design one with blue chardons just for you, thanks to this DYI guide from Lucy Dylan Weddings.
7 - Something metal blue
If you’re looking for a classic pale blue hue on your fingertips, the Borrowed and Blue nail varnish by essie is for you.
But if you’re looking for something more mature and modern, try the metal navy blue nail polish Infaillible by L’Oreal (pictured below), a sapphire or diamond ring’s best friend.
8 – Something old, but good as new
