30 Ideas For Incorporating “Something Blue” Into Your Wedding



The old adage that says every bride needs “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” is one wedding tradition that we’re happy to stand by. Unlike some of the more antiquated wedding rituals that can seem a bit pointless and even a bit awkward (and which we are totally on board with you skipping if you want), this sweet notion holds a ton of meaning, and it’s a wonderful way to incorporate personal touches into your day.

Today we’re tackling the “something blue” part of the tradition, which, depending on your style, can either be subtle or a significant element of your wedding-day look and décor. We love when brides choose an understated option like a blue garter, a sapphire hair comb or a pretty blue pair of shoes, but you can also make the hue part of your color palette for the day—bridesmaid dresses, bouquets and invitations look beautiful in varying shades of blue, too.

Julianne Hough Just Revealed the First Photo of Her Gorgeous Engagement Ring

Thank you, Julianne Hough, for causing a serious case of engagement ring envy: The professional dancer/actress just revealed the first close-up photo of her gorgeous (and massive!) oval-shaped sparkler—which her hockey player boyfriend proposed with last week—and we’re totally in love with it.

The six-carat stunner, which was designed by Lorraine Schwartz, is very similar in style to one of our favorite celebrity engagement rings of all time: the one Ryan Reynolds gave to Blake Lively. Hough teased the ring’s reveal on Instagram today, posting the below shot which directs eager fans to her blog post about the proposal. Check it out here.

Today’s Friendly Wedding PSA: Please Do Not Propose On a Dock With Slats Big Enough For the Ring to Fall Through 

I literally emitted a pained Eeeeeee as I read this story, and then heard my female colleagues make all matter of the same noise when I IMed it around to them: It’s about a boy named Matthew who decided to propose to his girlfriend Kayla while they were vacationing with her family in North Carolina.

The whole group had gone out to dinner when Kayla spotted Matthew’s mother; when she turned around to ask him why she was there, he was already on his knee.

Matthew opened the ring box, and before he could even say anything—before Kayla even really got a look at it—it seemingly leapt from the cozy confines of its box onto the dock where they were standing, through the crack, and then into the dark waters below.

WATCH: This Couple’s Music Video Involves All 250 of Their Wedding Guests

I know what you’re thinking: We’ve declared many viral wedding videos “the most epic one yet.” And it’s true, they keep getting more and more amazing, but this one, dear readers, is really something just for its scope alone: Newlyweds Robert and Theresa got all 250 of their wedding guests in on the action when they filmed a (pretty hardcore) music video at their reception in Orlando.

Behold the 8-minute long performance, which was impressively filmed in just one take. (And yes, we’re wondering, too, if that was the dress she wore all day, or just for this particular portion of their reception.):

So the next wedding you go to, maybe be on the lookout for a spur-of-the-moment music-video role assignment. This sort of thing just might give people ideas.
