Dilemma: Something Blue.
Posted: Mar 30, 2010 2:31 PM

I've just realized that I have NOTHING blue, except our eyes. I don't know if that counts. Do you ladies think that's a bit of a faux pas and/or trashy to have just the couple's eye color as something blue? I have nothing against the color, in point of fact, I lean more towards bluer hues of purple than redder ones in color preference; my colors are white, forest green and purple-more of a violet (bluer) purple, and dark rather than light and soft.

Help, pretty please?

Dear Vessy,

Your marriage license will still be valid even if the only blue thing you have is your eyes. Don't worry about it.

You can always wear blue underpants. Or, safety-pin a tiny blue bow somewhere on your underwear or inside your dress.

Vessy,

You could get a garter with a blue bow on it... or do as aunt suggested and wear blue panties or pin a blue ribbon to the underside of your dress...

If you don't, your marriage will be fine. Many people see these traditions as just for fun and don't vest too much into them. But, if you believe the superstition, you better find something stat! I don't think eyes count toward the tradition. If they did then your something old could be your body, something new could be your hairstyle and your something borrowed could be your venue.... It's just not the same...

I love blue and even had blue as my wedding colors. I, however, didn't have anything blue. So I wore blue underwear! I didn't really care for the whole something this, something that. I had a pair of clean blue underwear, so I just grabbed them and went. It really is no big deal :)

I don't think you need to wear blue but if you're doing the other things...something new, something old, something borrowed...why not go ahead and getcha something blue? It doesn't have to be something everyone would see or anything expensive, I'm going with some blue on my garter and maybe on my panties (which I haven't picked yet). Unlike the poster above me (sorry, I don't remember the name), I'm gettin' some new underoos (ooh la la underoos of course, lol)...guess she needed something OLD, bahahaha!!! J/K :o)

Thank you all for your wonderful help and advice. I think I'm just stressing a bit at the moment and that detail sort of put me on edge a bit. Again, thank you so much.

:)

For my something blue I'm getting a blue marker/sharpie and having my bridesmaids write their names on the bottom of my shoes!

I've heard that whoevers name wears off by the end of the night will be the next to get married!

Just a silly tradition but I like it.

Rebecca,

What a cute idea!! I've seen people write "I do" on the shoes, but not signatures. I might do this :)

thanks!

I had "P" (my married last name initial) on the bottom of my shoe in blue swarovski crystals.

I have a few options for something blue..
1. I may get my toe nails painted with a light blue
2. I have "I Do" in bl;ue rinestones on the bottom of my shoes
3. Blue underoos

RebeccaFazzio: I'm doing the same thing! I think I saw the idea in a magazine or something, and thought it would be cute. :)
