Incorporating something blue into your wedding day is an age-old tradition. The colour blue is said to symbolize love, purity, and fidelity, as well as to ward off evil. Typically, nearlyweds of the past wore their something blue in the form of jewellery or garters, but in recent years, the custom has been interpreted in many modern, creative ways.
If you're still looking for a memorable blue aspect for your wedding day, but aren't sure how to incorporate it into your own outfit, why not have your bridesmaids be your something blue? From ultra-glam navy or vibrant cobalt blue, there are a variety of tones to choose from when it comes to the iconic colour.
