Ted Baker London 'Morni' Pump ($174.95)

Ruche Gleaming Heart Blue Sequin Sash ($59.99)

Bauble Bar Azure Burst Drop Earrings ($32)

Hanky Panky Thongs ($31)

Charlotte Olympia Desirée Leopard Print Calf Hair Pumps ($1,100)

Suzanne Kalan Semi-Precious Multi-Stone Gold Drop Earrings ($825)

BHLDN Piccadilly Pumps ($320)

Sew a blue patch somewhere on your dress -- perhaps fabric from your father's or grandfather's shirt.

Blue fingernails may be a bit much, especially for a traditional wedding, but blue toenails are subtle and will transition well to your honeymoon. Essie Nail Polish ($8)

Ariella Collection Blue Stone And Cubic Zirconia Oval Ring ($38)

Ruche Down The Aisle Heels In Midnight Blue ($99.99)

Kenneth Jay Lane Faceted Pave Earrings ($98)

Wrap a blue, or blue-embroidered, handkerchief around your bouquet. Bonus points for sentimental value, such as if it belonged to your mom or grandmother.

If you don't want a blue shoe, consider blue soles on your shoes.

BHLDN Snowmelt Earrings ($160)
