1. Flats

It’s highly likely that you’ll but some comfortable heels for your wedding day. However, the truth is that they’ll hurt at some point. This is where a pair of flats comes in handy for the “something blue” idea.

2. Nail Polish

A majority of brides choose a subtle color for their nail polish. Most go for pink or nude shades. You could choose different color and be bold with it. Blue would be your best bet in this case.

According to the experts at NailRock, this color would complement the bride’s skin tone and the dress. It would also go well with the groom’s tuxedo. Blue will also accentuate your French manicure or pedicure if you’re planning on having them done on the day of your wedding. Another reason to go for blue is that it can accentuate your eyes. If you’re using a subtle shade like this one, you don’t have to worry about clashing with the dress or your husband’s jacket.

3. A Tote Bag

Technically, you’d not wear a tote bag for your wedding. However, if you did, it’d be a unique idea. Carry it around as a holder of the items you’ll need on your big day.

4. Your Innerwear

This can be a pleasant surprise for your spouse right after the day’s events. If you choose the color and shade carefully,  underwear in this color could be a little sexy secret between you and your loved one.

9. A Stacked Up Blue Wedding Cake

Consider a three-tier cake in the prettiest shade of blue.

10. Buttoned Up

Most of the items mentioned so far are for the bride, but it doesn’t mean the groom can’t have something blue. A patterned jacket in this colour, instead of the traditional black can break the monotony.

11. Shoe Stickers

Be creative with your ideas. Get a pair of “I do” stickers and put them on the soles of your heels. However, ensure they get captured in your wedding photos and videos.

12. Wear a Sash

If your gown is very simple, a blue sash can be an easy way to liven it up. Go for light, sky, navy, or dark blue depending on your wedding theme.

Your choice of jewelry is the best chance to incorporate this idea in your wedding. Choose a blue piece for your necklaces, bracelets, rings, or earrings.
