Hello, loves! Today we’re talking about modern ideas for something blue. We’ve all heard of the same tried-and-true ‘blue’ finds, like a wedding garter or a blue ribbon sewn into your gown. While lovely, we’re ready for something fresh + new! We’re tossing out the traditional playbook and sharing eighteen modern ideas for something blue. These finds will prove that this vintage tradition is anything but old-fashioned. Read on to see which ideas made the cut and find out how you can win something blue (or gifts for your bridesmaids) for your big day. Enjoy!
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?
