20 Modern Something Blue Ideas

by Emma Arendoski

Hey, loves: today we’re talking about modern something blue ideas to fulfill the old adage something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue (and a sixpence for your shoe). According to tradition, if the bride has something old (like her mother’s veil), something new (like her dress), something borrowed (like her mother’s gorgeous circa 1970’s clutch purse), and something blue (like any of these modern finds), it is considered good luck for a happy marriage.

If you have a sixpence in your shoe (the final part of the equation), history dictates you will win the lottery! Okay, maybe not, but apparently you get even more good luck if you have a sixpence, so you might as well throw it in. (Get one here, it’s really cheap!)

I’m sure we’ll help you with the something old, something new, and something borrowed in a bit, but today we have our sights set on something blue — specifically, modern something blue ideas.

Some of the classic something blue finds have been done dozens of times, so we sought out something new. Something fresh. Something fun and fashionable! And here they are! We’ve compiled this comprehensive list of eighteen modern ideas for something blue to prove this something blue adage is definitely not old-fashioned. This trend is here to stay!

Which of these modern ideas for something blue is your favorite?
