One of the most tried and true wedding traditions is for the bride to have something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue with them on their wedding day. Help the bride find her something blue by throwing her a shower with a blue theme! Today we’re sharing 10 ideas for a something blue bridal shower.
An All Blue Color Palette
When hosting a something blue bridal shower, make sure the color palette is filled with different shades of blue.
With shades varying from Tiffany’s inspired blues to hues of blue hydrangeas, your shower will be stunning and full of color.
Decor for a Something Blue Bridal Shower
The decorations for this something blue bridal shower are easily achieved with some blue florals, candles and signage.
Blue hydrangeas are the perfect flower for your centerpieces. Blooms in frosted glass vases on each table are a simple and lovely way to decorate for this shower theme.
Add some drama and elegance to the shower with blue pillar candles on beautiful mercury glass candle holders! They add height and a bit of sparkle to your tables and bring a touch of sophistication to your theme.
Your wedding shower signage should match the theme. Design signs that match the colors of your theme and place them in all of the important areas in the venue – one for the entryway to welcome guests, one for the gift table and a few to share the names of the foods guests will be enjoying.
Your decor helps pull off your shower theme, so make sure it matches your color palette well!
Signature Sweets and Drinks
Your food and drink can match the something blue theme as well.
A beautiful blue cake is the perfect way to celebrate the bride to be, guests can enjoy a slice while the bride opens her gifts.
Consider hosting a signature drink – a blue-hued cocktail in a custom champagne glass is the perfect way to celebrate. As an extra special touch, add a pretty blue flag to the glass to dress things up a bit!
How to Dress for a Something Blue Shower
Have your guests add to the something blue bridal shower theme, too! Have each guest wear their favorite piece of blue clothing to help the bride celebrate her upcoming wedding.
The bride herself can wear something blue and fun. A cute ‘Mrs.’ tee tied up with a maxi skirt would be the perfect look for this blue inspired shower.
Have your guests help the bride to be with finding her something blue by creating something sentimental at the shower. Invite each guest to bring a little trinket to add to a pin, making sure some of those things are borrowed, old or blue.
The bride can place the pin inside her gown on her wedding day and will carry the special sentiments from her loved ones with her as she walks down the aisle toward ‘I do.’
A something blue bridal shower is a lovely way for the bride to celebrate her upcoming wedding with those she loves, and she’ll come away from the shower feeling gratitude and joy.
