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 garter.

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 BM also gave me a garter with blue in it.  Guess I can have 2 blues!

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!

I carried a handkerchief with me that had touches of blue sewn into it. (My MOH 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.
