something blue...accessories!

{Hair pins from Etsy shops: MGMart & Frostings Jewelry}
Continuing the "something blue" post from last week on shoes, today we feature blue accessories. More fun options!

As a side note (that I probably should have mentioned last week), brides have traditionally worn or had something blue dating back to an Old English rhyme: "Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, a Sixpence in your Shoe." The blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity.

So now...on to the cute blue accessories!

Several online retailers sell blue garters-some of my favorite are from Cathy's Concepts {featured in 2nd picture above}.

Above, earrings with aqua stones from Turq Bridal {one of my favorite for necklaces and earrings!}.

A note about the hair pins above...Etsy has a lot of great wedding options! Handmade, one-of-a-kind options, very reasonably priced. {and this is true for many items on Etsy--its a must check for brides-to-be who want the DIY style who perhaps don't have the DIY time or creative skill!}

Consider the ways you can accessorize with your "something blue."

Happy Planning!
