What's Your "Something Blue"?

What's Your "Something Blue"?

In April, I mentioned that my friends Liz and Dave would be tying the knot in Boston. I'm happy to report that the ceremony and reception went off without a hitch, and the newlyweds are off on their honeymoon. The bride already knew how she'd be wearing her makeup, and her hair was styled in a classic looped bun. As for her nails? She opted for a neutral polish on her fingers, and cleverly in keeping with the traditional, "something borrowed, something blue" theme, she wore a beautiful steely blue shade on her toes.

While she could have opted for a lovely blue shadow or nail polish on her fingers, I have to admit that I was a huge fan of her pedicure choice. Model Agyness Deyn recently wore some bright royal blue polish to complement her funky style, but for a wedding, a more muted version is a great option. Plus, by keeping the more adventurous shade slightly hidden, Liz was able to mix trendy with the traditional and subtle with the bold. Check out my widget for some inspiration.

My bridesmaids bought me D&G "Light Blue" perfume a few days before the wedding so I'd have something blue... I thought that was such a thoughtful gift! Not to mention that my husband loves the smell.

I am getting married in Hawaii so I am carrying my mom's "Kona Kitchens" cookbook as my something old and my something blue (the title is turquoise).

I'm not too huge of a fan of the blue polish - it makes you look like a corpse! To each her own, I suppose...

That was an extremely unique and classy idea for "something blue"! I still adore my deep blue polish from Chanel, which I still tend to use. How fun that she used such a beautiful color. I, on the other hand, had blue in my garter belt, which is much more traditional. Way to go!

Aw, cute idea for the "something blue"! My "something blue" was actually part of my dress...the top half of my dress had pale, pale peach and pale, pale blue french knots. But I wish I thought of the nail polish thing!
