A traditional British custom, the rhyme “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpence in your shoe” signifies the four good luck tokens that a bride can carry with her or wear as part of her outfit on her wedding day.
The modern bride has longer to prepare for her wedding than in olden days and Crystal Bridal Accessories encourages brides to get creative with their lucky charms. There are a vast amount of shoe accessories available in blue as a specific option. Bridal shoes adorned with sparkly ‘I do’ crystal lettering underneath are a popular option, as are wedding shoes with blue undersoles reminiscent of the style made popular by Christian Louboutin.
Brides looking for a more subtle look can choose a tiny blue crystal on creatively designed by Rainbow Club on the soles of their shoes. Many brides are opting for a pair of blue wedding shoes – extremely sought after since the Sex and the City star donned a pair of Royal Blue Manolo Blahniks. Brides can also choose to have a pair of shoes dyed to any shade of blue, have blue crystals added to the heels of their shoes or opt for a pair of blue crystal encrusted designer heels by Benjamin Adams.
“Blue shoes have been really popular this season – especially for brides choosing to have them dyed to their own shade,” says Amy Karim, owner of Crystal Bridal Accessories. “Mostly, brides are looking for a creative touch to their outfit as well as something which can be captured in their wedding photographs. An ivory dress looks stunning with blue shoes underneath for a quick stylish snapshot of the big day!”
Blue wedding jewellery has long been traditional, but more recently brides are opting for bespoke pieces of jewellery made especially for their wedding day. On the Crystal Bridal Accessories website, brides can choose a piece of jewellery, select the right blue from the Swarovski colour chart and create a unique accessory with ‘Something Blue’ stones. The most popular choices are a pendant with a blue stone, earrings, or an anklet which can be worn under the dress.
“Modern brides don’t have to settle for a simple blue ribbon in the wedding garter - there is definitely plenty of choice this season for a stunning ‘Something Blue’ to wear as you walk down the aisle on your special day,” Amy concludes.
