A beach wedding by the vast blue ocean is a dream come true. Now, imagine what a stunning bride you would be, wearing matching blue bridal accessories on your special day!
Tradition is for any bride to wear “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”
The ‘old’, the ‘borrowed’, the ‘new … they all are essential accessories of the bridal attire, and it’s all about bringing luck and happiness.
But the ‘blue’ is special! The color blue has always been associated with sympathy, harmony, faithfulness, loyalty and confidence. Blue is the color of the spirit, of honesty, of true friendship and devotion to your loved ones. Blue are the clear skies, and blue is the ocean….
So, all you need are a few original blue bridal accessories to show your love and affection.
Blue Sentimental Touch in Your Hair
Brunette or blond, a tender hair accessory in blue would always suit you perfectly. Aqua blue ‘birdcage’ veil, complemented by a white and turquoise brooch, is so sophisticated! If you are a more ‘boho chic’-beach bride, all you need are just a few small blue flowers in your hair, or a tender blue ribbon. And for a fairy tale ‘mermaid’ look, you can always add a few tiny seashells or starfish to have that perfect finishing sentimental touch of your bridal hairstyle!
Bridal Jewellery in Sparkly Blue
The sparkly blue precious gems are like treasures from the depths of the sea! Blue sapphires, glittering diamonds, dark azurite, fair zirconia, light blue or teal aquamarine, deep blue lazurite, tender moonstone, blue- to ocean green topaz, or aqua tourmailine – any of these would look exquisite on your bridal necklace, bracelet or earrings.
The bridal jewellery gems are mostly offered in teardrop– or ball–like shapes, but you can always get creative and have them shaped as cute little starfish, seashells, or even tender flowers.
Blue gems bridal jewellery will also look gorgeous on ankle bracelets or barefoot sandals – so perfect for a beach wedding!
‘Blue Seduction’ – Bridal Lingerie
‘Wish you look enchanting and sexy on your first wedding night? … Ooops! Let’s leave this to your imagination, and for now talk only about your lingerie on the wedding day!
All attention here should, of course, be paid to the garter. The tossing of the bridal garter is, after all, one of the funniest and most expected attractions of the wedding!
As it is a very intimate piece of your personal lingerie, yet it will be on display to just everybody to see, you should think well about what your wedding garter should look like! Should it be prudently simple or provocatively sexy?… Why not both?! As a part of your blue bridal accessories set, your garter can also be all-blue or with just a touch of blue.
A lace, silk or satin garter, decorated with little pearls or with a delicate starfish brooch, will do the magic. For a more personal touch, you can have your bridal garter embroidered with a delicate monogram, yours and your future husband’s initials, names, or even the date of your wedding.
Here’s a tip for you – Have two garters! One for tossing, and one for …. well… later!
Blue Grace in Your Bridal Bouquet
The wedding bouquet is probably the most beautiful bridal accessory. As a beach bride, you should not miss the chance to have the blue charm and harmony of the sea into your own bridal bouquet. Introduce it delicately, scattering tiny “simple” blue flowers among lavish white roses or other white flowers. You can also have your bouquet all-blue, adding a few decorative items as little starfish, seashells, etc. sea “treasures”. Finally, add “breeze”- light ribbons and bouquet wrap in a contrasting color within your wedding color theme and … Voila! You have the perfect beach bridal bouquet!
Ocean Breeze Wedding Dress
“Here comes the bride, all dressed in white…” Yet, as a beach bride, why not add the fresh breeze of the blue ocean to your white wedding gown, too?! You can have a tender blue lace bustier, white-to-blue tulle skirt, or just a delicate blue satin waist ribbon. And if you are bold enough, you can go for an exotic all-blue wedding dress! Traditions are overrated!
Blue sea, fresh breeze, magical sunset … can you image a more beautiful wedding?!
Get inspired by the ocean and seal your love with a ‘blue’ kiss!
