Ever since Carrie from Sex and the City married Big dawning a large blue feature in her hair, I’ve been more and more intrigued with the “something blue” accessory. While Carrie’s feather may be too large and dramatic for most of us, it’s a great idea! Since these items (something new, old, borrowed, and blue) are signs of luck, why not make them a statement? No need to tuck them away. Flaunt them!
The most widely used blue accessories are blue shoes. This is an easy and versatile way to incorporate blue without the color being immediately overpowering. Because most dresses will be longer than floor-length, the shoes are easily covered up. Unless the bride lifts up her dress to go up or down a flight of stairs or etc. no one will even notice it. However, when they do, it makes for a dashing surprise! Also, blue shoes nowadays come in all different cuts and styles, with many different embellishments to fit any bride’s fancy.
If blue shoes seem too conventional or overdone, you can always choose the route of Carrie Bradshaw and dawn a statement headpiece. It doesn’t have to be as garish or exaggerated. Some handmade pieces available on website such as Etsy.com are so elegant and detailed.
Another great option to exhibit a dash a blue is through earrings. Dangly earrings with wavy locks add just the right amount of emphasize to your face, without being overpowering. A great pair of accent studs also will work elegantly with a classic up-do. Whatever your muse, blue accessories will add to the overall festive atmosphere!
