It’s a truth universally acknowledged (by us, at least) that our brides love tipping their hat to tradition, as much as they do discovering some of the most original and distinctive styling accessories that our sellers offer. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together a few of our favourite ways to add a little something blue to your day.

If, as we did, you’re wondering ‘why blue?’, the answer dates back hundreds of years. In ancient Rome the colour blue symbolised love, purity and fidelity – hence the Virgin Mary’s preferred attire – and, until our very own Queen Victoria kicked-off the white wedding frenzy in 1840, blue was a popular choice for bridal gowns.

But a bride need not flaunt her something blue on the day itself; instead it could be a unique good luck charm, cherished for years to come. Not only does such a token tick all the right boxes as far as tradition is concerned, but it can beautifully capture the sentiment behind the big day.

Blue stones have been back at the top of the style stakes since the royal engagement in 2010. These little gems are slightly more attainable than the Duchess of Cambridge’s rock, and we think they’ll add the perfect finishing touch.

Or why not put your best foot forward and follow in the steps of Carrie Bradshaw. Blue wedding shoes are the perfect way to add a dash of colour to your outfit.

Tossing the garter used to be quite the spectacle at weddings, with bachelors charging the bride to lay hands on the slip of stocking with great gusto. These days – in our experience – it’s usually only the groom who gets a look-in.
