Colors are beautiful additions that can bring a little extra life to your wedding. However, when planning your wedding, choosing a color scheme for the day from the many available color option could be very problematic. Furthermore, you must consider other factors such as the kind of contrast and background you want to create and of course, wedding color traditions you wish to uphold.
One of the wedding color traditions you may want to uphold is "Something blue." It is believed that the color blue brings good luck to the bride on her big day. However, you may not like the idea of going all blue for your wedding, and be at a loss as to how to keep up with traditional demands. Well, here are five unique ways you can use something blue in your wedding, while still going ahead with your choice colors.
1. Blue-Stoned Engagement Rings
If you are a person who doesn't like the more common engagement rings with diamonds, getting a sapphire stoned engagement ring will be a way to get your blue swag on effectively, without any hassle. The blue of a sapphire gem on an engagement ring symbolizes marital wisdom, tolerance, and balance; these are vital ingredients for a long-lasting, happy marriage.
2. Wedding shoes
A pair of blue wedding shoes are elegant. You can make your shoes your “something blue.” The best thing about wearing a blue wedding shoe is, you get to wear them time and again, and each time brings you beautiful memories. Alternatively, you can wear your plain colored shoes and have your bridesmaids sign on the soles with blue markers. Think of Louboutin's red bottoms; now you have a custom blue bottom.
Nothing stops you from completely avoiding the show of the color blue if you do not want to. Wearing blue lingerie is perfect for keeping the color out of sight and still managing to uphold wedding traditions. You may even choose lingerie with subtle blue designs if you wish and that still serves.
4. The Wedding Cake
You can ask your baker to use blue coloring for your cake. And, if you do not like colors on your wedding cake, you can request that your baker use blueberries as toppings for your wedding cake. The beautiful thing about incorporating something blue into your cake is that you, and the people you care about, get to eat it.
5. The Wedding Car
You can arrive in a navy blue car or, if you have a thing for vintage, you and your spouse can drive off in a navy blue Mustang. This is a classy way to bring in something blue without it being completely overused or interfering with your color scheme.
You can uphold the traditional wedding wishes and not lose track of your modern slay, by incorporating “something blue’ in mild or heavy doses or however you see fit. The goal is to get in the color blue and snatch all the good luck it will bring to your marriage.
