Modern Ideas for Something Blue
When I started searching for modern something blue ideas, I was amazed at the beautiful items I found. Some of the most unique ideas include a temporary tattoo, blue soled sandals, an iPhone case (for your phone in your wedding clutch), a navy blue bolero, a feminine navy blue bra, and yes — even “borrowed & blue” nail polish. I love the light blue locket (#7): I picture it wrapped around one’s bouquet and worn after the wedding. There’s a little something here for everyone… and, if I had to pick a favorite, I don’t think I could. Can you?
