You’ve heard the phrase, “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue,” right? This rhyme comes from England in the time of Queen Victoria, and bringing together all these pieces is said to give the bride good luck. Today we’re here to give you all sorts of “something blue” bridal accessory ideas! Read on to discover how to incorporate “something blue” into your wedding tradition.

Even though the garter isn’t seen for a majority of your wedding, it’s still a fun way to include the “something blue” tradition in your ensemble. Once the traditional garter toss happens, it can be a fun reveal for your wedding guests and the groom!
A manicure is a fantastic way to include all your bridesmaids before the wedding, and also a great idea to add something blue to your ensemble! You could get them all done blue, or perhaps work with both blue and white nails for a gorgeous look. If you’re looking for a way to add a splash of color that isn’t overwhelming, a manicure is perfect!
Are you ready for an incredible stylistic choice that will make your dress stand out from all the rest? Blue embroidery on the inside of your dress is such a fun way to incorporate this tradition. Not sure what to have embroidered? Consider adding a sweet and personal touch to your dress by embroidering a special message, your wedding date, or your new last name in blue.
Many bridal hairstyles require a pin or two to keep everything where it needs to be. This is an excellent opportunity to add a subtle bridal accessory for something blue without letting it take over your whole look. There are some truly beautiful options for hair pins, like floral or rhinestone pins!
Not every bride has a handbag as part of their wedding look, but if you’re planning to, why not go blue? Choosing a blue handbag instead of white not only adds visual appeal to your overall look, but it’s a unique way to add “something blue” to your ensemble. Using a handbag on your wedding day is also very convenient, as it’s a great place to keep all sorts of accessories: your phone, lip gloss, tissues, and your bridal emergency kit!
