5 Sneaky Ways to Incorporate Your Something Blue into Your Big Day!

We’re all familiar with the bridal tradition of wearing “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue,” but what does it represent?

The Olde English rhyme outlines four good luck charms the bride carries on her the day of the wedding to bring different fortunes. Something Old represents continuity in marriage, something new is for a bright future, something borrowed is sharing in the happiness from another married couple, and last but not least, the blue symbolizes love and fidelity.

For the brides interested in keeping this tradition alive on her wedding day, we came up with 5 cute ways to seamlessly incorporate “Something Blue” into your ensemble.

1. Blue Opal Jewelry

Blue Opal is the perfect modern twist on the expected sapphire bling. We’re seeing the opal trend all over the Internet, so why not be the first to make it a wedding trend?

What Will She Wear?

Hi ladies! Today is the first post in our new series, “What Will She Wear?”, where we talk about upcoming celebrity weddings, and take guesses at what kind of gown the bride will wear. Today’s upcoming bride is the lovely Jennifer Aniston.

Jennifer’s wedding to Justin Theroux is rumored to be happening this spring, so we started to think about what the beautiful actress may wear.

For her wedding to Brad Pitt in 2000, Jen wore a beautiful backless gown with a high neckline.

We imagine she probably wants this wedding to be as different from her first as possible, so her gown will might be radically different as well! Here are a few gowns available at Lotus Bridal that we think Jen would look great in.

Jen Aniston has an great figure, so we think she’d look incredible in a fitted mermaid gown, like this one from Allure Bridals:

For a similar style with a bit more sparkle, Jen would look terrific in this gown from Allure Couture:

Or if she wanted to do a romantic ballgown, we think Jen would look fantastic in this gown by Maggie Sottero:
