Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue… Part 4

I must admit, my favourite colour has been blue for as long as I can remember. I always wanted a blue sapphire engagement ring, I have always owned blue cars and my bedrooms have always been decorated in various shades of… blue! So this was always going to be a nice blog piece to write. Below, we have researched all of the wonderful ways you can incorporate Something Blue into your Wedding Day look.

 

Hair flowers

I love the idea of winding some pretty blue silk flowers through your hair. You can keep your hair loose, with some flowers wound in at the side, or if you are having an up do, pin them up into the style. With lots of outlets to buy silk or faux flowers from, you can choose the exact shade and flower to work with the rest of your look. Try Dunelm Mill or JustArtificial.co.uk

 

 

Earrings

Are you a drop earring or stud earring kind of girl? Wearing simple pearl studs can be a good idea for your wedding day – simple and understated, they won’t detract from your wedding hair and makeup. However, a small flash of colour on your earrings can look gorgeous. We absolutely adore these delicate Kalila Earrings from Oliver Bonas for £9

 

 

Mascara / coloured makeup

Blue mascara is so flattering on almost all skin tones. Keep it bang up to date (and avoid any 80’s nightmares!) by using Blinc Dark Blue Mascara £15.75 from feelunique.com or Max Factor Eye Brightening mascara in Blue for £6.99

 Necklace

Are you going to be wearing a necklace on your wedding day? By wearing a necklace incorporating the colour blue, you can go for a big chunky statement piece, or something pretty and delicate like this 70’s Delicate Blue Gem Necklace from Bohemian Rose Vintage for £10.

We also love this Blue Floral Pinwheel necklace by Matin Lapin on notonthehighstreet.com for £11.

 

 

Bracelet

Do you prefer charm bracelets or slinky bangles? Work Something Blue on your wrist with this beautiful silk twine Ju Ju Triple Star Bracelet, £16 from Oliver Bonas.

 

Nail varnish

This is an easy, no fuss way to use blue on your wedding day. Whether you do your own nails or get them done professionally, choose your colour carefully – are you going to go for midnight blue or a bright sky blue?

We are seriously in love with this blue nail varnish duo from Ted Baker at Boots for £8.50.

 

Bolero

Want to keep warm on your way to the ceremony and are daring to flash a bit of colour? We were pretty much blown away with this incredible Marabou Ostrich Feather Shrug for £85 from Euphoria.

Tiara

With Swarovski pearls and crystals, this delicate tiara is £46.80 inclusive of P&P from Flutterby Weddings. I especially love the little heart worked into the detailing!

 

 

Bouquet

There are so many beautiful blue flowers that you can choose from to go into your bouquet. Ask for miniature irises, Blue delphiniums or grape-hyacinth and you can mix them in with your other blooms to make a gorgeous bunch.

 

Dress

Kate Middleton opted for a hint of blue ribbon sewn into her wedding gown, but would you want to be equally as discreet or perhaps go for a bolder blue ribbon around your waist or even a blue wedding dress?

This elegant number is £159.44 from www.lightinthebox.com

 

 

We love the silhouette of this Ghost Dress in Tiffany Blue - £195 at John Lewis.

 

Underwear

Every girl loves new underwear, right? Treat yourself (and your newlywed!) with these beautiful pieces of blue wedding lingerie.

This sky blue and charcoal bra is £38 from Elle Macpherson at Figleaves. The matching briefs are £25

This lacy blue bra is £7 from H&M and the matching briefs are £4.99.

Shoes

And last, but by no means least are our Something Blue Shoe options! As you have probably noticed, we love a good colour splash here at The Budget Bride Company and the glimpse of a fabulous pair of blue shoes to round off your look would certainly get a round of applause from us!

These strappy blue sandals are £42 from ASOS

 

Or you could go all out glam with these super sparkly peep toes from Red Herring at Debenhams for £18.

 

We would love to know what your Something Blue is going to be! Are you going subtle or all out for a blue colour scheme?
