What will be my something blue?

Do you know where the tradition of something borrowed and something blue on your wedding day came from? Does every bride try and continue this tradition? And so I've been wondering what my something blue could be. Can it be a handkerchief that I hold or a blue balloon nearby by or can I get away with just having blue eyes?

I love this idea of having blue initials on the bottom of my shoe. It can be my own little secret. Shhh don't tell...

These flowers are stunning and very unusual. Carrying a bouquet of these at a wedding would be lovely. Does anyone know what kind of flowers these are?



How cute are these boy shorts? Only you would know that these are under your gown. Plus you can find them at one of my favorite stores in San Francisco jest jewels.

Blue ice cream cones would look wonderful with a bride, especially if she has red lips and doesn't drip anything on her dress. Ah I'm such a slob this can't be me!



I've always enjoyed when brides break away from the norm and wear blue or leopard shoes on their day. Remember in Father of the Bride when she wore tennis shoes?

So I've finally decided that my something blue can just be this wonderful vintage polka dot dress. Would you laugh if you saw me walk down the aisle in this little frock? Oh come on, of course you would. Tell me sweetie, what was your something blue on your wedding day?

What great ideas for the something blue! My something blue was a University of Kentucky (Go Big Blue!) pin that was attached to one of the many layers under my dress.

I LOVE the intials under the shoes!!!! That is so cute. I had amazing underoos from VS that said bride and had a blue ribbon. I STILL love those! I also had my husbands fraternity pin looped with a blue shappire and diamon pendant clipped to my bra.

I had a blue gem on my garter :)

Love the rhinestones! I planned my wedding in about 2 weeks and this was a detail I nearly missed. When we arrived at the courthouse, my mom handed my a blue beaded bracelet she was wearing. It ended up being hidden by my flowers in most of our pics but there nonetheless.

The something blue stands for fidelity and loyalty. I love the blue at the bottom of the shoe... so cute. Most of the brides I worked with used a blue garter. xoxo
