I can’t figure out what my something blue will be. I’m not interested in undies, because…I don’t know, it just isn’t my thang. I like the idea of blue shoes, but my style/our wedding is very classic (black and white with emerald accents), so blue would stick out like a sore thumb. I’m going to go for a classic ivory shoe. I guess that nixes earrings or a necklace as well…
So…what did you have (or what will you have)?

@StL.Ashley: my something blue is my garter.

Im not married yet, but you could always paint a nail blue (or do a blue tip), or even have them add a small blue heart on whatever design you had planned on doing? Otherwise you could maybe look for a blue pin and pin it to your bouqet?

My mother made a bracelet for me out of seed pearls with one pale blue glass bead on it.
I also bought a white handkerchief with my first initial embroidered in pale blue that I kept in my clutch.
Pretty sure no one saw either item or noticed the blue.

My cousin wore a family handkerchief that had blue trim.

I had a blue label sewn into my dress with our names and the wedding date. It was super cute, but not obtrusive at all.

Mine. Though Bridesmaid or Best Man also gave me a garter with blue in it. Guess I can have 2 blues!

I’m doing two tiny blue adhesive crystals just outside my eyes.
Also, there are some good ideas here inluding denim, which I hadn’t thought of on a wedding day but it makes sense as a small accent for a country wedding. http://weddings.gatheringguide.com/ac/wedding-accessories/something-blue

Our wedding colors are red, black, and ivory, but I’ve always wanted blue wedding shoes, and regardless of the fact that they’ll clash horribly I couldn’t resist! And if you think about it, if you’re wearing a long dress no one will really see your shoes anyway! 🙂
Here’s my something blue!

- Wedding: August 2011 - St. Joseph's Parish, Seattle Tennis Club
Mine was a bit untraditional – I just wore Ralph Lauren’s “Blue” perfume 🙂

I carried a handkerchief with me that had touches of blue sewn into it. (My Maid/Matron of Honor held it for me during the ceremony and handed it to me when I started to tear up.)

@StL.Ashley: I gave my future son-in-law a heart shaped piece of aida cross stich fabric in light blue. He stitched a personal message to her on it. I stitched the heart into her dress without her seeing it until she got dressed for the wedding.

I had a ivory lace garter that had a pale blue ribbon attached to it. I didn’t want an all blue garter as my style is more classic, so I thought the simple ribbon was a good compromise.
Although I really like the idea of the blue patch with the wedding date sewn into the dress. I found some cute ones on etsy, but never got around to doing that.
