10 Something Blue Wedding Accessories to Add to Your Attire
There are many wedding traditions out there, but something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue may be one of the most popular ones. The original rhyme dates back to the Victorian Era, where a final line is added: and a sixpence in her shoe. The blue color was said to ward off an evil eye that could cause suffering and bad luck, as the color represents love, purity, and fertility.
Whether you believe in this superstition or not, it can still be fun to participate in these time-honored rituals. Why not combine your something new with your something blue? Here are 10 blue wedding accessories you can buy for your upcoming nuptials.
