15 Creative Ways to Add Something Blue to your Wedding Attire


As you already know by now, I love to window-shop on Etsy (and would buy everything on there if only I could afford to!). This time, I thought of seeking out handmade items that can help you incorporate “Something Blue” creatively into your wedding attire, and this is for those of you who want to do something a bit more interesting than simply wearing a blue garter around your leg (not that there’s anything wrong with that, but hey, it’s 2010. There are tons of options out there.  ;))

Here now are 15 ways to make a cool blue statement on your wedding day.

1 and 2: Wear a handmade vintage headband and/or sash with blue trim to your vintage wedding.
