Are you a bride-to-be struggling to find your something blue? Then take a look at these gorgeous ideas!

The old English rhyme "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" has come to symbolize the things a bride is supposed to wear on her wedding day to have a successful marriage.

These pieces are often heirlooms or family treasures handed down as tokens of good luck for the bride to carry on her walk down the aisle.

It is a beloved tradition that many brides choose to partake in. Whether you just got engaged or are in the midst of planning, finding your wedding day "something blue" can be a challenge.

Do you want the hue to be subtle or in-your-face? It's really up to you, the bride.

If you’re incorporating blue shades into your wedding, a "something blue" wedding invitation is a perfect way to get a jump start on this tradition.

Because you can't wear the invitation on your big day, just make sure to choose a design that has a blue doily or ribbon, so you can easily incorporate it into your floral bouquet as you walk down the aisle.
