Mine is my dress!  It has a blue sash.  But what about incorporating some blue jewelry?  And does it matter if the blue shows?  Could you go with blue underwear or a blue garter?  Or maybe a blue-embroidered handkerchief.  Some bridal shoes have blue soles (Cynthia Rowley, for example).

My SIL got me a very small blue sachet of lavendar.  Not sure what I’ll do with it, maybe pin it inside my dress somewhere.

I wish I had access to one of my late grandfather’s ties though.  He collected suit ties and wore them all the time, and it would be a nice way to remember him to have a piece of one of the blue ones sewn in the hem of my dress.

I had quite a few "something blue’s"!  I had a lable for the inside of my gown with my new initials and wedding date in blue thread, my shoes had blue soles (Blue Tux is the brand), and my undies were blue (I Do by Hanky Panky!).  I also had a blue garter, but I forgot to put it on, so i guess that doesn’t count. 

Some of the Bees wore blue topaz rings (Mrs. Peng, in particular) which I am coveting quite hard right now.  Other something blue items could be small stud sapphire earrings, blue toe polish, blue ribbon wrap on your bouquet, or a blue crinny!

One of the Bees (I forget who) wore a fake tattoo of a blue transformer… it was very cute!  I think it was maybe Mrs. Green Tea?

Oh my – those shoes are GORGEOUS!

I haven’t decided on my something blue yet… it’s a tough decision!

I was gonna be my toe nail LOL but that didn’t go well with my mom. I’m using a brooch as my blue.. I haven’t bought it yet though.

My friend wore blue toe nail polish. I’m wearing the same garter my mom wore at her wedding and it has a blue ribbon on it.

I see you live in Boston! Are you a Red Sox fan?? I bought this garter set on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=11456278. The "real" garter has a tiny blue bow tucked inside, and the "toss" garter has blue in the logo. The shop has other sports teams, too, in case you or your Fiance are into another team. It’s a discreet way to wear your "something blue" and celebrate your team pride!

I have a blue garter that my bridal shop gave me when I ordered my dress. But a) I wanted something more unique and b) we aren’t going to do a garter toss. So I haven’t quite figured it out yet. At least I have a backup plan!

The bridal shop where I got my dress used a blue button for my bustle.
