You've already got your hands on the something new and the something borrowed. But now, as you're brainstorming what to get for your something blue, you're stuck wondering what you can brighten up your wedding day with to give into the age-old tradition. To help you add the beautiful blue hue to your wedding, here are 10 unique items you can choose from for your big day ahead.

1. A Hint of Blue Flowers
Walk down the aisle with blue flowers in your bouquet. It will be the perfect way to make a statement and quite the wedding entrance.

2. Shoes
Here's where you can go bright and bold with your something blue: heels. Periwinkle, royal blue or cerulean...the sky (blue!) is the limit.

3. The Color of Your Nails
A light blue color may be a nice accent to your overall wedding look. Opt for a pale blue or a pop that will make your fingers stand out in style.

4. Blue Thread
Sew a little something underneath your dress with blue thread — whether it's a meaningful picture or item that has to do with your something borrowed.

5. The Color of the Dresses
If you want to go bold, you can pick a blue wedding dress or blue bridesmaid dresses. There are many different shades of the color you can choose from.

6. The Details on the Bouquet
Whether it's a ribbon around the bouquet or a broach attached, you can clip or tie on blue to the bouquet.

7. The Undergarments
A hint of blue on your undergarments or you a blue garter is a fun hidden way to add the color into your wedding.

8. The Cake
Blue icing will make your cake stand out, but if you don't want to commit to the whole cake being blue, you can add a hint of icing on small areas of the cake.

9. Signature Drink
Share the something blue with all of your guests and make a signature cocktail with a splash of color. A fun recipe idea (and liquor that is blue is Hypnotiq &mash; add some champagne to it, and it's a fun cocktail!).

10. The Groom
Maybe it's the color of his bow tie, a navy suit, or a pop of blue in his boutonniere. While you're wearing all the other "somethings," he can take care of the blue part.
