I chose "Something BLUE" as my idea of the day because there are SO many cool ways to do your something blue! From subtle to drastic!!!
BUT first, in case you don't know WHY we do the something blue,
it comes from the Old English rhyme that goes:
A sixpence in your shoe"
Originally the old, new, borrowed and blue were love tokens given by mothers or sisters or close family members in the 11th hour on a brides wedding day.
Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity.
So...now that we know WHY we do the something blue...to the ideas!!!
My favorite Pinterest idea for Something blue is...
BLUE glitter on the bottom of the shoes!!! When I saw this I LOVED it! I think it is one of my FAVORITE!!!

What about just BLUE shoes? This pair of VERY interesting shoes belong to another one of our brides Ali.
Here is what I LOVE most about these shoes??? After Ali got married she called me when she became pregnant for pictures...and I said "Bring out those blue wedding shoes!" Look what we did with them!!!
If you want to sneak over and look at the rest of Ali's prego shoot go to:
I LOVE this next idea of stitching your wedding date onto the bottom of the dress. Other ideas could be a monogram OR even your maiden name. If you stitch it to the skirt...it can be passed down through generations with all the brides whom wear it on the bottom...oh what a great idea!!! lol
