My mother made my headpiece and put a blue feather under all the orange and brown ones. 

You could also have shoes with blue trim or liners, blue panties, a blue garter, wear a piece of jewelry with some blue stones (my ring is aquamarine so I was covered anyway).  Or there’s that weird fad of painting one nail a different color, could go blue there if it’s something you do.

You could wear blue in a symbolic way, by using a perfume with blue on its name. Several: Light Blue, by Dolce & Gabbana; Into the Blue, by Escada; Blue, by Ralph Lauren; BLV, by Bulgari.

Blue isn’t in my theme either so I wanted something hidden. I found this cute anklet on etsy, and it works out perfectly. I’ve got something blue now but doesn’t show under the dress.

I used a blue garter! It wasn’t visible until the garter toss, so it didn’t clash with my unrelated wedding colors.

I glittered the bottoms of my shoes…no, they’re not slippery but they will crack the longer they’re worn (good thing these are just for the ceremony).

I did this with “Mrs his name” inside my dress and surprised him with it

My mum embroidered our initials on a small satin heart in blue stitching. It was stitched in the inside of my dress. My garter also had a tiny blue bow.

Blue doesn’t have to be in your color scheme for people to understand that you’re probably wearing said item as your “something blue”. I wore a family heirloom ring that is aquamarine- if you don’t have one… find a piece of jewelry and start a family tradition (or a small bracelet). Could be fun to share with cousins, nieces, etc. 

Also, my mom got me underwear and had Mrs. (last name) embroidered on them. Those were super cute and fun and nobody needs to see them! Well, almost nobody.

My fiance only chews one particular kind of gum – blue 5ive peppermint. I’m going to take one of the foil wrappers, shape it into a heart, and put it in the arch of my high heel!

My sister painted her nails a really pale blue, and it looked lovely.

I also like the idea of putting blue insoles inside your shoes. No one will see them, plus it’ll make your shoes more comfy!

My mother stiched a blue fabric heart on the inside of the bottom layer of my SIL’s wedding dress. Totally unnoticeable, but cute.
