Everyone loves a wedding tradition, and fewer are more beloved and followed than the old “something old, something new” rhyme. If you would love to incorporate this lovely old tradition into your wedding ceremony, but are looking for a way to put your own unique flair and twist on it, then this article is for you! Today we are going to talk about fun twists on the “something blue” part of the “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe” rhyme!
Get a blue tattoo
If you like tattoos, then you might consider getting a blue tattoo. Colored ink tattoos are beautiful, and could be a fun and unique way to have a little “something blue” on you as you walk down the aisle. You could also consider convincing your spouse-to-be to get a matching or complimentary tattoo with you for a truly memorable “something blue”!
Slip on some blue lingerie
Find some fun and sexy blue lingerie to don beneath your wedding gown as a slightly naughty way to satisfy the “something blue” tradition. For some added fun, you can enjoy having your beloved guess where you are keeping your “something blue”.
Tie a blue bow around your pet
If you plan on including your beloved furry friends in your wedding, you might want to make your “something blue” a blue ribbon around your pet’s neck. Then you can hold your pet as you walk down the aisle, have them trot alongside, or just watch from the sidelines.
Add some blue to your gown
Some blue beading, embroidery, ribbon, or even just blue fabric in your wedding gown for an unusual twist on both your wedding gown and on the “something blue” tradition.
Shoes with blue soles
A blue soled shoe can be a really fun twist on the “something blue” tradition. The blue may peek out as you solemnly walk down the aisle, or while you are kicking up your heels on the dance floor later, adding in an extra layer of fun.
Dye your hair blue
With the beautiful and fun recent trend of dyeing hair lots of different colors like green, pink, orange, yellow, and blue, why not add in a stripe of blue to your hair for your “something blue”? You could add in a single chunk, just do some blue highlights underneath, or really go for it with an all over color. Pro tip: fancy hair colors fade fast, so in order to keep the color nice and vibrant for your big day, get it done close to the day of your wedding.
Blue Mani and/or Pedi
Rock the blue nail polish on either your toes or your fingers (or both!) for a fun way to incorporate that “something blue” tradition.
