Looking for a something blue that will outlast the wedding cake? It seems most traditional something blue items such as a blue bridal veil or a blue gown sash tend to be worn once and tucked away in brides’ sock drawers, never to be seen again. But wouldn’t it be nice to find a something blue accessory you’ll love to wear – and re-wear – long after the wedding day? Absolutely! Read on to check out five hand-picked something blues you can reuse happily ever after.
1. Something Blue Ring
Ah, the something blue ring: one of my favorite re-usable ideas! Wear it on your right hand down the aisle and re-wear whenever the mood strikes. This ring, above, is by Rare Earth and I can’t get over that incredible stone. Gorgeous!
2. Something Blue Fabric Bouquet
Real flowers wilt; fabric flowers last forever! This something blue bouquet by Innstyches can be carried down the aisle and placed in a pretty vase after the wedding day. Love, love, love.
3. Navy Blue Shoes
These navy blue shoes were made for walking – down the aisle, down the lobby to your honeymoon suite, and at home while browsing the coffee shop. These handmade blue shoes are by The White Ribbon and offer a stylish, understated, and classic look, while looking completely comfortable, too. We love how they can be re-worn again with ease!
4. Vintage Blue Hankie
Carry this pretty patterned vintage blue hankie down the aisle or in your clutch purse; after the wedding, keep in your purse for whenever you need it! Spotted via Duryea Place Designs.
5. Something Blue (+ White) Coin Purse
A coin purse, particularly one as cute as the one handmade by Emma Gordon London, never goes out of style. If you have a gown with pockets, this compact size will fit perfectly and keep your essentials close at hand. After the wedding day, toss into your everyday purse!
And, we couldn’t resist just one more…
Something Blue Sign
Technically, this doesn’t count as “something blue” since you can’t carry it down the aisle (well, you could, but it might feel awkward). Still, when we see something that makes us smile we can’t help but share it with you. This adorable blue Mr. and Mrs. shabby chic sign can be used as wedding day decor and afterward in your love nest. This unique sign is handmade by I Tag Studios and we’re loving it.
