You may be the most modern bride on the planet, but when it comes to “Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue,” most brides like to keep the tradition/superstition. According to lore, each item represents a good-luck token for the bride. If she carries all of them on her wedding day, her marriage will be happy.

Blue has been connected to weddings for centuries. Brides in ancient Rome wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, and fidelity. Christianity has long dressed the Virgin Mary in blue, so purity is link to the color. Blue was a popular color for wedding gowns before the 19th Century, as evidenced in proverbs like, “Marry in blue, lover be true.”

We found lots of ideas for working blue into your wedding look. Some are obvious, such as shoes and earrings, others not as much, such as blue toenails and patches on your dress. Click through the slideshow to be inspired.
