When I read the title all I could think of was a Smurf!  That, or the Blue Man Group…

No, I’ve never heard of this.  My something blue was my garter.  I guess I don’t see why you couldn’t do something like this though, I’ve just never heard about it before.

@DaneLady:  That’s what I thought too. I chuckled. I have never heard of this but think it depends on the person. I wouldn’t really want to be told to wear blue but someone else might find it flattering.

If one of my girlfriends dyed her hair blue…sure! I dont know if I’d single them out or ask them to do so. But maybe it would be a cute photo op if it worked out that someone already did.

I’d never even thought of this, but honestly I think it sounds cute! I agree with @HelleCat, I don’t know that I’d call them out or even really mention it but I definitely think there’s one adorable photo op there.

@ToTheMoonAndBack: this made me chuckle too.

I think the danger is that you are describing a person as your “something” which starts to sound like you are using them as a prop. I know that’s not what you are thinking, just trying to explain why I might be a little turned off by the idea.

@Natalieh86:  In the program they could be listed as “Someone Blue”?

I think it’s a cute idea.

I admit I pictured a bridesmaid holding her breath. 

It’s a cute idea.  Just be careful with your “something old” and “something borrowed!”

@tekwriter1221:  I was starting to wonder if you were inviting the Naavi from Avatar….  If that is the case, yes they can be you something blue, or a smurf, or that guy Megamind… but he might try to take control of the wedding.
