My something blue is my grandma’s old scarf that she used when she rolled her hair :). I’m going to pin it in the underside of my dress.   I miss her so much!  She practically raised me growing up.  I am excited that I can carry a piece with me down the isle to remember her by on my special day.

@soon2beMrsGP: Totally awesome idea! I wanted to embroider something like that, I may steal this!!

Can I cheat and have my ‘something blue’ be a tattoo?? It’s already there…after all

Right now, it’s a brooch in my brooch bouquet.  The blue is so dark it looks black.  Fiance just found, however, a GORGEOUS small blue porcelain mask from Venice that he got years ago.  Since we’re having a masquerade wedding, I might attach the mask to the handle of the bouquet.

@soon2beMrsGP: That is a great idea. I was considering doing something similar, but simpler. I was just going to sew a blue ribbon inside my petticoats – perhaps include a little horseshoe. I do like your idea a lot though, so I might nick it!

@murmur and @ninadoggy:  Thanks so much!  I got that idea from a pic I saw on another website and loved it!  My seamstress that did my alterations had previously made one for 1 other bride, and it turned out to be one of my absolute favorite things from the wedding 🙂

My accent/BM dress color is a dusty aqua, so my mom got me a pair of aquamarine earrings for my something blue. They are emerald cut aquamarine drop earrings with little diamonds around the aquamarines. Can’t wait to wear them!

I love the idea of having sapphire jewelry as your something blue. I think deep blue sapphires are absolutely stunning against an all white, bridal ensemble. My something blue will be my Zales sapphire and diamond promise ring which will become my engagement ring when the time comes!

These two pairs of studs are gorgeous:

These drops are gorgeous, as well:

Oh! I wish I had seen this before! I would have loved to have had our wedding date sewn in my dress!
