1. Brooch it: This is actually my brooch bouquet and my something blue. I added a blue brooch to my brooch bouquet one that I got from my grandmother. I love the sentimental. I actually made my brooch bouquet and if you want to see how, check out my post on DIY brooch bouquet.  

2. Top it off- A pair of blue love birds makes the perfect cake topper and the sweetest something blue. 

3. Purse-ue your blue- The bride uses a bright blue purse, in the same way many brides wear bright blue shoes. It stands out and totally rocks.  

4. Hang on to blue- If blue isn't part of your color scheme and you are looking for a more subtle something blue consider a blue hanger. Your dress will need a hanger might as well make it a blue one. 

5. Monogram your blue- Celebrate something blue and the brides new initials, not on her dress but engraved on his sleeve instead. It is subtle and so sweet. 

6. Dress it up- Add your something blue to your wedding dress: tie a blue bow, a blue pin, or even a blue sash.  

7. You have my heart- I love this idea. Sew a blue heart made from the fabric of one of  your groom's blue shirts, or even your dad onto your wedding dress. So adorable. 

8. Unveil your blue- a subtle blue engraved heart is a sweet addition to any veil and an amazing something blue. 

9. I do blue- Use blue glittery sparkly I do stickers under your wedding shoes for your something blue. These are from Your Happily Ever After
