5 Ways To Wear Something Blue On Your Wedding Day

The 19th-century rhyme “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe” has been a superstition modern brides have taken into account for good luck on their wedding day. In an endless sea of white, whether an heirloom or a new item, having something blue can elevate your ceremony and make it extra special. Blue symbolises love, purity, and fidelity, which can be incorporated into your bridal repertoire in many subtle-yet-effective ways.

From diamond earrings to Carrie Bradshaw’s classic Manolo Blahniks and hair accessories, here are five ways to follow the trend and add something blue to your wedding.

Hair Accessories

Whether it’s a hair band, crown or clips, slipping touches of blue into the hair will elevate your bridal look like no other. Hermione Harbutt’s Forget Me Not hair pins will add a dose of sparkle and elegance with their delicate pearls as well as crystals. Even if your hair is slicked-back, in a low ponytail, tousled down, or in a bun, adding a spot of colour will complement your bridal look.

A Pair Of Shoes


Choosing a pair of shoes in the colour blue is an almost risk-free option that adds a strong and symbolic statement to your big day. Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic Manolo Blahnik silk Hangisi stilettos in royal blue have become an instant favourite among brides. It’s the perfect balance of glamour and unconventional with its almond toe shape and crystal buckle.

A Dazzling Jewellery


To create a dramatic accent on the happiest day of your life, we’d suggest adding a dazzling effect to your bridal looks such as diamond earrings, necklaces, bracelets or even rings. Tiffany & Co.’s Soleste drop earrings would be the most stunning addition. Made with platinum, the earrings have round brilliant diamonds and pear-shaped aquamarines that will make you look classy and sophisticated instantly.

Nothing feels quite as luxurious as slipping into beautifully crafted lingerie and while bridal lingerie is often neutral-coloured, you can also opt for some blue lace. Make every detail of your outfit count, including what’s underneath the dress, like Journelle’s light blue lace bra and underwear.

Reach for a pastel hue or a deep navy to paint your finger or toenails on a special day. Whether it’s been used as a French tip colour or an overall hue, the blue tones will ultimately make a beautiful complement to your ring. We love Chanel’s Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour for boldness and shine.
